Afternoon outing....

A friend took OH out for a coffee, yesterday afternoon at " Timmies". (For those of you not in Canada, Tim Horton's is a coffee and donut shop, also now serving light meals and most recently getting into the ice cream market. It is affectionately called Timmies). One can sit and chat for long periods of time over one coffee, believe me, OH used to sit with his car buff friends for hours, twice a week.!!!
Several months ago this would not have been a big deal, however, at this point in time it gave me a chance to also get out of the house and not have worry about him for a couple of hours. So what did I do with my spare time?
No not a fabric shop, I went to an Apiary. I took my youngest two grand daughters to a local apiary. It was not just educational but the owners have set up a big play ground, and also a few barnyard animals. For $5.00 each we had three hours of fun, and came home with some delicious honey. I chose a lemon honey, yummy, had some on toast this a.m. This was also the choice for the eldest of the pair, the youngest chose chocolate honey.
It's marvelous what a few hours in the sun and fresh air, doing something out of the ordinary with not a care in the world can do for you. I felt so much better.
Dinner prepared, eaten and cleaned up then out to cut the lawn which was beginning to look like a forgotten hay field. That was my Monday.

I don't do well in the heat, but enjoy a nice day outside. Especially if kids are around. My grands can laugh the summer away. cw

Sounds like a peaceful day for you--no worries, just enjoying the grandkids. We all should do this more often.

Oh I love Timmies! We were there yesterday for lunch too. We had the soup combo. Soup, bun, med coffee, donut for $5.00 Do you buy the Tim Hortons coffee to drink at home? Starbucks coffee is so strong but Timmies is perfect.
