Oh my aching back..... I'm Done

Spent the last 4 days on the marshes picking bakeapples. My back is screaming at me to stop. Picked 9 gallons altogether. Should have worn my pedometer.... I'm sure it would have rolled over a few times, lol.
If you have every tasted bakeapples, you would know that it is definitely worth it.

Despite the Fog!!!

Went to Great Paradise last weekend.... a little town that was resettled in the late 1960's.As any Newfoundlander would know, Resettlement was hard on people. They were pretty much forced to leave the small communities by the Government (Premier Joseph A. Smallwood) and move to larger centers, leaving behind a way of life and even some of their loved ones in the cemeteries. A number of former residents have built summer homes back there and every summer they have a reunion party. We went over by boat with a friend from Petite Forte.
There was an old fashioned Garden Party Dance with ages from 5 to 95. The weather was a bit wet and foggy but everyone had a grand old time.

This and That

Hi all, haven't blogged in a while now. Busy times in the garden and then my email account was hacked into. And let me tell you... that was no fun. Anyway on with what I have been up to... June 18th. was our last lobster boil for the season, snif, snif. Here is a pic of hubby with the lobsters. There is nothing better than lobster boiled in water right from the ocean. There is just the perfect amount of salt in it.

My Rose Medley rug is finished except for the binding. I'm happy with the background now.
Been working on my Forest secrets challenge. Going pretty good so far, can't show any progress though. Just have to wait for the deadline date and then will show all.

Lately, I have been doing some knitting.. trying to knit up some of my stash... telling myself that I will NOT buy any more wool for a while, LOL. Now that's a Challenge all of it's own.
I knit this blue cable baby afghan Had some wool left so I knit a Blue Cable Scarf
Just finished this Baby Shells afghan last night

This last one didn't take too long, seeing as we had rain and fog for the last three days - grrrrrr. Hopefully there are some sunny days ahead of us. The fog can only last so long... right? But then again the old saying goes - if you don't like the weather in Newfoundland, wait five minutes - it will change!

Toodles everyone, hope you are all having a fun summer.
