A PEACEFUL SATURDAY



Up at 6.00 am and off to the farmers market ....




....... which also happens to be doggy heaven.



Doggy treats


Doggy cliques


A little browsing at my favourite shop before going home to do some work.



A productive afternoon.....

  1. Sounds like a heavenly day ... looks like a heavenly day, with everyone in shorts or short pants. Congrats on the wood shavings. Getting something done is the best thing ever! Well, at least among the top ten.

  2. We do have dogs at our farmers market but mostly those small white fluffy ones. No wonderful pots or stuff, just good farm produce.

  3. I looks like you went to a doggie parade. Those wood shavings are exciting to see because that means that you are busy creating.

  4. I would love to browse through that shop with you-- and the farmers' market too-- and my dog would love the Dog Food Dude for sure-as I know he would jump through a hoop of fire for a single peanut.

  17. Wow! Dogs everywhere.
    We have a local farmer's market that sets up every summer and fall in our city center. It is close enough to walk, so we always take Edward and Apple. They love to go, especially as they receive lots of attention!

  19. What a lovely day! Those little Scotties are so adorable... my dad used to have two - Bonnie and Dougal. They have such funny characters and seeing these made me smile.

    Also, fab that you had a good spate of work afterwards... great way to round off the day. I'm told it's been a little cooler in your parts and so I hope you're loving that taste of Autumn in the air :) Happy new week to you!

  22. Love the name "dog food dude".
    Farmer's Markets always seem to be such happy affairs.
    Wood chips are so cool, and so is your mug.

  23. Now I'm in the mood for a market day.
    What was the outcome of the monkey hullabaloo last week?

  24. Oh u up early. Love that sky photo. I have been sleeping in late like a sack of flour turned away from the sunrise. Which hits me in the eye and yet.

    Spring is beginning here.

  25. Thanks for all the encouragement, re the wood shavings!

    Lisa, no that isn't Ben in the photo. Ben is a giant in comparison.

    Paula, woodshavings are great for digging into flower beds, especially around the roses.

    Kendalee, it has been a little cooler especially at night. Loving the taste of Autumn air!

    Stevie, it's been very quiet on the monkey front though there was a short skirmish yesterday. I think a young male from a neighbouring troop is trying to take over which is a good thing since it prevents inbreeding but I hate to think of "our" alpha male being hurt. He really is a fine looking specimen.

    Mansuetude, its the Autumn sunlight that stabs one in the eye early in the mornings. Enjoy your sleep in!

  26. Blogging is so wonderful, sitting in my living room, I'm beginning to know you and even go to the market with you :) I loved your last 2 pictures. What a privilege it would be to see you work in person.
