what i did on my summer vacation: day seven

woke up this morning with no voice, booo. we started the day with an insanely fluffy pile of scrambled eggs (farm fresh!), sausage, and toast with home-made strawberry preserves, and then headed out for our mid-week mission - mennonite cookies. when we were at zehr's on monday, they were all sold out, but today we had success in the form of gingersnaps and the classic chocolate chip! we also couldn't resist the local ontario peaches.

we did a little circuit of the county trying to find an antiques place i remembered from previous years - a big old barn, full of everything you could imagine from dishes to furniture to junk - my favourite kind of antiques! of course, we couldn't find it, but enjoyed a nice drive. and on the way home, we came across a different place - one that specialised in tin toys! and had cars from the '20s! and a real santa-style sleigh! and trains, one of which the charming owner gave to wee h! and, just to cap off the experience of the ideal antiques outing, a book that mentions h's great-grandfather and namesake.

then it was home for jigsaw puzzles, more knitting, and some rather unfortunate weather - cold and cloudy. h and i put on our sweaters and went for a walk, but there was definitely no swimming.
