What a day I have had, now put behind me in memories ... it all began when my "Crabby Cabbie" arrived home around 3:30 am. Do you think I could get back to sleep after that? of course not said "Mr. Murphy". A long day, but yet another fun one it was.
My friend, BJ and I had made plans to meet up to do the Christmas Bazaar Circuit today. November is a whole Month, every weekend, of Christmas Bazaars and such, don't you know?
I got myself ready to head on out the door to pickup BJ and her friend, Betty, for 9:30 am.
The first stop of the day was at the Wiarton Salvation Army where 3 local Churches had gone under one roof to have their Bazaar together. Now that is a fantastic Community Church effort to work together on their parts I thought.
Lot of wonderful "specialized" gifts to be gotten ....
A real "highlight" of stopping in at the Mrs. Claus "One Stop Shopping" was meeting one of Cindy's Recipe Exchange Members, a certain talented, or so I have picked up on her being so in a few Facebook conversations, is one Sherri Higgs.
Let me tell you, Bruce County and the Bruce Peninsula holds an amazing amount of talent, all unique and original in its own way .... I live at the Gateway of a pretty amazing place, with more flowing down to all boundaries of Bruce County. A very lucky gal I am to live in such a wonderful place, not to mention growing up here too !
We were "off" a little faster then a "herd of turtles" to our next destination of the day ... this time leaving Wiarton behind to venture over to Sauble Beach way ....
By the time we made it to the Sauble Beach United Church Christmas Bazaar the three of had been getting pretty hungry, especially after "eyeing" up all the goodies at the last two. We were amazed at the lunch being offered here ....
At this Bazaar Betty and BJ had bought some books, and what else I am not sure, but I, myself had bought a Christmas runner for either the Side Buffet or Dining Room table. I will know better when I try it out on both first, with photos to follow at that time.
Do you think we were done by this time of day? Nah, as back in Wiarton we had to stop at the Salvation Army's Thrift Store, as one never knows what kind of buy we could find ourselves there now could they? Just so happened I did find another jar I had been on the lookout for, so it was all good.
I did drop BJ and Betty back off at BJ and Paul's house before heading on back home myself. I am pretty sure it must have been around 3 pm or so by the time I did arrive back home. My "pack" were all very happy to see me and didn't seem they had their legs "crossed" too long while waiting for me to get my butt back home to them.
I was really "pooped" right out. Not even a coffee could revive me. I had to lay down for a half hour before getting back up to shower and have another coffee before sitting down here to upload and organize my photos.
Shoot I forgot about the post my Facebook friend, Sharon, had put up today, having not picked up myself a few Sympathy cards for ....
Damn, I hope nobody shows up tomorrow as I am totally unprepared for them with no cards on display *blush*.
Really it was another wonderful day with so many wonderful people in it to make it happen. Thanks to friends and lots of *smiles* as it sure made another full day of some more happy living memories in my life, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
