Hello Readers, Joining in with Su’s Changing Season’s Challenge. June delivered some beach time.
I saw this beach memorial for a lacrosse coach. Lax Coach Kenny Jones – RIP 9-12-2018
One morning, I grabbed my Sharpie markers and decided to revive the writing. The original writing had faded a lot and wish I had some Modge Podge to seal it, but maybe it was not meant to last. Maybe they just scattered his Coach Jones’ ashes here and this was a short-term memorial with his favorite lax stick attached?
So adding a bit of marker seemed enough. And it was a soothing activity. Hm.
June was a “dry” month (thanks to Shelly for reminding me of this term – when you abstain from alcohol it is called a “dry” period) – EXCEPT for two shots of Sambuca at my sister’s Mother-n-law’s house. The funny thing is that I was surrounded by well-stocked bars at a few places this month – with various whiskeys that I like – but it was a no brainer. Just NOT in the drinking mode – (also, last month I started my annual herbal cleanse (Kroeger herbs) and so alcohol is not on the menu when in health fortification mode).
However, when an 80-year-old, Italian lady whips out the bottles (Amaretto and Sambuca) to offer a treat with coffee – the answer is, “Yes, please” – with a smile.
Had writing time and took this fun photo of my espresso with twist of lemon rind.
Had Tim Horton’s coffee, which sometimes seems to taste better in Canada – why is that?
Now… the sad news is that on the very last day of the trip up north, we were in car accident. I almost did not want to mention it – so please don’t ask questions and let’s keep this on the downlow ((we were t-boned by a truck – it was not at high speeds – and so we are all okay -but I was in the back seat and I have sprained ribs. Have had over a week of bed rest – and now two weeks later my ribs, leg, and hip area really healing up)).
So…. June involved rib recovery (sniff – because it comes at a really bad time….)
But before all of the bed rest –
I did get some street shots.
Like this one with the playing card dress again.
This time, a girl named Kristen was hanging out and she let me grab a few photos of her too.
And check out this artsy person with cool hair:
Have you ever seen a shipping container building?
Toronto has a shipping container market – info here
The rest of the photos from Canada are in a slideshow (I have more street shots from June, but will share them in a separate post at another time).
So how was your month of June?
