My Busy Weekend: an Update

I did not bake for you this weekend.  Nor did I create some magical crafty confabulation.  Nope.  Sorry.  Instead, the Pie and I ran around town doing errands, then we busied ourselves around the house putting up pictures and knife racks and important stuff like that. We’re exhausted. So is Gren.


So I’m just gonna give you a wee précis of what I got up to this weekend, which will eventually lead to further posts.  Really, it’s all for the greater good.

Friday I picked up some gorgeous iris buds from my mother’s house, which then promptly bloomed overnight and gave me these gorgeous blossoms.

She also gave me several pots of planted herbs, which I added to my meagre collection on the balcony. There’s sage, two kinds of basil, chives, dill, lavender …

*Busy Weekend 21

… parsley, garlic chives, thyme …

*Busy Weekend 18

… mint, oregano …

*Busy Weekend 17

… rosemary, and even a tomato.

And after carefully watering and keeping the dog at bay, my wee grass seeds are finally starting to sprout!

Saturday, we hit up the Great Glebe Garage Sale, which is a pretty big deal in town, but ended up being a complete zoo.

*Busy Weekend 14

There was an elf, as well as a guy dressed like a cow.

*Busy Weekend 15

We didn’t buy anything, though we were tempted by this tea cart. It was overpriced for what it was so we left it alone.

*Busy Weekend 9

There were some odd juxtapositions of things, like this ornate knife next to a box of Q-Tips.

*Busy Weekend 7

I liked the way this family laid out their clothes for sale.

*Busy Weekend 11

And if I had a giant grand front hall I would have put something like this in it.

*Busy Weekend 10

Though probably not something like this.

*Busy Weekend 12

I caught this from a distance, hence the blur: a flamingo with a wig.

*Busy Weekend 13

Suffice to say that our house-related chaos is dying down, as evidenced by the relative organization of our living room. I promise to have something more exciting for you soon!

A corgi. A small boy. A sense of adventure. Chaos ensues.

    1. I wish I’d been able to get closer to the flamingo, but the crowds were too intense. I think it was actually a lamp, and I keep catching myself wondering how much it was selling for …


      1. That’s actually why I took a picture of it. It seemed that every time the Pie and I exclaimed over the ugliness or uselessness of something, we’d see someone ten minutes later carrying it around under their arm. I took a picture of this one to record it for posterity should we happen to see it again — and we didn’t!


      2. Well, that certainly is an interesting concept. I guess it’s a very different thing to have in your home, haha. I wonder if it could serve any other, beneficial purpose?
