May 2-4 Weekend
We are celebrating a long weekend here in Kingston. Our weekend started off with a nice supper with friends on Friday night. Saturday we drove with my sister and husband out to Sharbot Lake to the grand opening of Seed to Sausage. It was quite a hit with a great variety of eclectic foods.
Yesterday I spent the day with Daughter No. 1 at Frontenac Street weeding the front flower bed and planting the back garden. We scored some bedding plants at the new Sunday Farmers Market in the neighborhood. In the afternoon my sister picked Al up and then me and we drove to Sydenham to the Open House at the home we were raised in. Its for sale and so we were curious to see it again. It was a trip down memory lane. It was the only home I ever lived in before I got married. Our parents bought it in 1956 for about 4 grand. Our dad sold it after our mother passed away in 2004 for $116,000, today the asking price is $234,900. The cosmetics that have been done are pleasant. I was surprised I didn't feel more nostalgic. It desperately needs a new roof. My sister and I were both wishing we had brought a knife to harvest some of the abundant rhubarb still growing behind the garage.
Today we are pretty much loafing around here in the apartment. It is a hot day out there. Knitting is on my radar.
