Hot flashes

Mon Jun 19, 2006 Miss Vicky 

Despite the heat, we were able to get out and about a bit this weekend. Of course, our excursions were followed by extended periods in the one air-conditioned room in the house, but it wasn't too bad.

Saturday morning we spent cycling between garage and street sales all over the west end. We started at Pinehurst, moved on to Hamilton North, and then down Byron to Westboro, where a cluster of streets around Tweedsmuir were holding street sales. Many were winding down by the time we got there, but it was still fun to chat with folks and check out the offerings. We also hit the Westview Artists' show, a twice-annual event showcasing a number of excellent local artists. We ended our tour with a healthy lunch at Thyme & Again.

And then we collapsed.

We began our Sunday with a long river walk with Winston (with the obligatory water stop at the Scott Street Seven-Eleven), ran a few errands on the bikes and then had an excellent Father's Day ploughman's lunch (note: Harvest Loaf's Olive Sourdough Bread is fantastic). We didn't much feel like braving the heat on Sunday afternoon, so we hid inside and stuffed envelopes for a fundraising mailing. Exciting weekend, no?
