WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?



of September 24. If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.

With this late summer weather it was impossible to stay inside, so I had a quiet busy weekend.

There was a pumpkin festival near Waterloo in a big farm. I went there with Ilona and we had a lot of fun. There were so many people and lots of good stuff to buy. Real bio/organic !



Besides pumpkins and even pumpkin Schnaps (!) there also was honey, vegetables and pumpkin plates and cakes. There was a show with horses, and kids hopping in hay ! That would have been something for little Grandson Toby when he is a little older



We just got the last pictures of him, he is now 10 months old.



On Sunday there was a big "Old Timer" show at the Waterloo Lion. Cars from 1926 onwards were proudly presented by their owners. The Lion watched over all these crazy car lovers !
It was quiet interesting to see, and nice to walk on the battle field in the warm sunshine.



And last but not least, good news, Arthur is well again, as you can see here on the picture and he has already gained 1 kg !

For those who also have a weekend report here is a link :

That market looks lovely. Never heard of pumpkin schnapps! Your little grandson is so handsome already, and tall! And as for Arthur, he would suit Ginger who looks like a front row rugby player with all the weight he's packing around his middle! Have a great week. Jo

Glad my dear Arthur is feeling better. Toby is such a happy baby! Nice to see. I hope you see him often as he grows.

It seems to be the agricultural festival season everywhere. I noticed a couple on my recent trip that I never heard of before. A Scarecrow festival in Meaford, Ontario and a pumpkin throwing festival near Owen Sound, Ontario. The latter was particularly strange. Besides pumpkins being tossed manually they were tossed with very large medieval type sling shots and cannons armed with compressed air. It is nice to have a little amusement before Winter sets in.
