Today was a grand day for gallavanting. Sunny and hot. I slept in and landed at Rebecca’s Restaurant at 1300. My favorite destination for lunch in Mahone Bay. The menu is always refreshing. I had Sweet Potato soup, Shrimp and mushroom Risotto cakes with a side salad and for dessert traditional Nova Scotia Strawberry Shortcake. It was made with the best tea biscuit I’ve had since my grandmother’s for sure. The new location is brillant. On Edgewater Street, it has loads of parking and seating.
Right Next door there is a newly opened shop, called Sprig Apothecary, it literally had at all my favourite things for sale. Succulents, lotions, beautifying products, and pretty little pots. So I added a little succulent to my growing indoor garden and some beauty products to pamper myself. It was fun, like a day at the spa, my style.
Down the way I stopped at Have A Yarn, and found some new color ways. It’s a new company RavensWood Fibre Co. A local company!
Another new shop on Main is a sweet little interior design shop. Here Nor There. I picked up a seagrass basket, and a macrama plant holder. The plant holder I’ve been ages waiting for and it’s perfect.
I dropped in to Birdsall-Worthington Pottery for a gander and found beautiful hand made earrings.
Finally ended up at Peacocks Antiques and found some awesome vintage clothing, stay tuned for those outfits. Including a perfect birthday dress for July.
Day off so I’m enjoying myself …
I found some treasures yesterday…
Yummy tea from Davids Teas:
This funny mood calendar that I plan on taking to work:
Just finished another Thriller. It starts with the main Character Tessa present day and then flashs back to a teenage Tessie. Enduring a traumatic event, it unfolds into a nightmarish horror story. The author writes a cliffhanger at the end of the chapter then makes you wait for the answers after the flashback. Genius! It kept my attention for sure!
This is a first novel for Fiona Barton. It’s truly an original story. It’s written in flashback style. The story told from many different view points. Like an episode of Columbo you know who did it from the beginning. The ‘why’ is the most fascinating part. Why did she push her husband in front of a bus? The story unfolds from there.
The Audible book is funny and truthful. I’ve written down quite a few passages.
David Bell has that special recipe to wrap me up in a story:)
