A Wee Tad Better This Day

This morning was better as the headaches remained at bay, however the nausea was full frontal and center in my tummy.  Still a wee tad better this day then yesterday, but not one more dent put in my "to do" list even though there is so much to do.  I still did not feel well enough to tackle anything more then wipe a couple sticky spots from the kitchen floor, and wipe down the bathroom counter a bit.

Love me for how I am or do not love me at all.  This is the attitude I think we all adapt when we find ourselves sick, throwing our hands up in the air, resorting nothing is to get done other then the bare basics until feeling better once again returns to our body.

Rob also went along North of the Checkerboard with me this morning, as he had a scheduled Doctors appointment along with mine.

Once we had finished up at the Doctors, Rob took me downtown Wiarton to the Farmer's Market, as I had egg cartons for my friend, Anita of Dejong Acres Farm.  Also my friend, Abby of Miners' Maple Products had something she wanted to discuss with me.

It was a nice change up for Rob to go along.  He loves teasing the girls, so that probably made his day right there I am thinking.  Poor girls.

I took some different shots at the Wiarton Farmer's Market this morning.  I have been trying to change it up every week I stop on by there.  I haven't missed a week yet since it has opened.  Should I be getting myself my very own "spot" there permanently I wonder?  Ha ! what would I sell? puppies and a smartie pants hubby?  I think I might go broke.

Really who can resist Honey and fresh made Bread?  I am thinking not too many people.

More sweetness when Laura of Pinetree Preserves is there with all her jarred  goodies.

Keppel Bee Tree not only has honey, Lori also has a wide variety of Pure Beeswax Candles and a few Birdhouses as you can see.  Need something for gifting?  Lori can be contacted by dropping into the Wiarton Market Fridays, or the Owen Sound Market on Saturday.  Can't do either, then give her a call at 519-270-2213 to place an order. 

Then the big secret why Abby wanted to see me.

Abby gave me this 26 oz bottle of pure Maple Syrup from Miner's' Maple Products, along with two of her personal Maple Syrup Cookbooks (books are not for me to keep,  she had been very clear on this point. ha !).

Why on Earth would Abby do this?  always a method behind the madness is there not?  Abby would like me to choose a couple recipes from the cookbooks, make them and photograph them for Miners' Maple Products Facebook page.  Really I am flattered that she thinks my food pictures are that good, but there are many days I think otherwise.

I can't wait to make this a project by tackling a couple of the recipes I have already picked out to try on my sister and brother-in-law who are visiting with us next week.  It is always nice to have new Guinea Pigs to experiment with, is it not?  especially when it is family members, as they still have to love you regardless of how the food turns out, do they not?

You know I really really hate wishing my life away, however when I am feeling sick I can't help but clock watch for the time to come around for when I take our Aussies out for the last time at the end of the day so I can go to bed.  Sad but true.  Actually not much different when I was sick and my boys were little.  Amazing how us Mothers manage what we have had to get through some days.

I have two very big days ahead of me.  I pray I am feeling, if not 100%, at least 75% better then I am at the moment, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".

  7. Hi Cindy, loved your pictures of the Wiarton Market. I wish I could get there sometime before it is all closed up for the winter. Anita looks like she was having fun or were you making some wise crack at her. Hope you continue to improve. I think there is going to be a nice day coming up on Sunday. Today was cool, but not as bad and the rain did not ammount to much so it was not as damp inside.
