Day trip to Nanaimo

We went to Nanaimo on Wednesday to return something that didn't work and saw some new hanging baskets in yellow and thought they would stand out better so grabbed them....

Yellow hanging baskets

Also picked up this cute gnome

Not quite a G-string, but close... I just couldn't resist him.

Found a nest under all the grape vines, not sure which bird but did see remnants of a blue egg on the ground under it.

Finally got around to buying a new sewing machine, mine died around the time of Covid and I've been itching for a new one but just never got around to it. Now I have one again. Yesterday I made curtains for the ensuite bathroom, curtains for one dining room window to keep the morning sun out and now a new cover for the dog bed... but need a large zipper to finish it.

Needs a proper cover, for sure.

Today (Friday) we are off to Salt Spring for the day, have to pick up mail and visit with some friends.
