Frost every night now, so it is time to bring in the house plants. I'll pot them up tomorrow.

Day 362 of 365

Yesterday we went to Grazing in the Field, a dining experience promoting locally produced and processed food.

 It was held at a beautiful dairy farm in Woodlands, Manitoba.

The 7 courses of food were amazing (the above soup is made from cream from where my husband works - his company was one of the partners and that is how we got to go).

The people were wonderful, and we had such a fun time. An all around great experience and worthy of 3 pictures (I did take lots of pictures last night).

Day 360 of 365

We walked along the train tracks tonight and saw why there were so many fire trucks the other day - a grass fire near the lumber yard.

We were off the tracks when this train came by.

Two pictures today as I only have 5 days left.

One slice of a Brandywine tomato covers a whole piece of bread (over 6" wide) - it was delicious.

Hard to see, but there were a few Cedar Waxwing birds enjoying the sprinkler today - the one on the arbor is a young one.

Day 349 of 365

We all took turns trying out the go-cart that my oldest son (in the picture) and my husband made. They made it from scratch - designed and welded the frame, figured out how to get all the components to work etc. It took a couple of summers and they are pleased that it is finally working.

Day 346 of 365

We went hiking in the Whiteshell today (a beautiful provincial park about 2 hours east of home, near the Manitoba/Ontario border).

Day 344 of 365

Finished knitting a pair of socks (34C outside today, so a bit hot for wool socks, but I am sure I will need them soon).

Day 343 of 365

Although temperatures are around 30C, there are signs of autumn in the trees (picture from our evening walk).

My oldest son and I biked down to watch a train - it was extremely long. (In the day 332 picture, my family are by the railway crossing where this picture was taken).

Love the prairies - we can see for miles (in the distance is where we go for bike rides).

My favourite geraniums, Raspberry Ripple I think (I have had the same plant for a few years),

I love how there are some all red flowers.
