Now picture two store fronts and five apartments in that space. I look at that and am humbled.
On to happier news. Yesterday was the Bowmanville Maple festival! Here you see the swing band that was playing ALL DAY! I can't think of a time when they took more than a five minute break. Good for you guys!
This is the girls boxing club. My hubby wanted a picture, so I obliged. They were so red and tired and still kicking a**. It was great.
One of the MANY dogs being walked throughout the festival.
This guy was one of the biggest. Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of the jack russell puppy that tried to pick a fight with him. The big dog looked so confused!
And of course, this is our visitor from the Bowmanville Zoo. I don't know his name. but boy was he smelly! They were giving rides to kids, even when it started raining.
The profile there is my second daughter, and this is a view of the parking lot across from my apartment. There was a tilt-a-whirl, kiddies coaster, tons of junk food and those games of chance that are really just ways of emptying your wallet. Fun for all, in other words!
Now, for my last bit of news...MY ETSY SHOP IS OPEN!!! I've only got a couple of messenger bags on there for now, because of money constraints, but in a week and a half, May 13th, I'll be adding about five or six more things, including jewelry my eldest made! Yippee!!!
