Every Saturday morning Leona and MJ go into the market in Clearwater, B.C. to sell their crafts. They invited me to go along, however, they had to be on the road by 7:30 AM !! AM !!! As in ABSOLUTE MADNESS. I really wanted to go but lordie lordie lordie – how do people function at that ungawdly hour ?? For ME to ‘function’ at that hour means that I would have to be up out of bed by 5:30AM as it takes this old gal a minimum of two hours to ‘wake up’. No, I am not one of those people that wakes up ‘awake’. You can’t blame me though as I did come by it honestly – my Mother has been like it her lifetime and is like it to this day.
AND to make matters even worse I don’t have an alarm clock. Well I do have an alarm clock – but it’s electric and as you know by now I’m nowhere near any electricity. We agreed that when MJ woke up at 6:30AM she was going to come over to my rig and wake me up. Turns out I woke up at 4:30AM because my poor darling little guy was shivering to death !! I was soon to find out why. I did get him under the blankets again but I couldn’t go back to sleep.
When I went outside at 7:30AM there was FROST covering everything ! FROST – ICE ==== FREEZING !! Oh me nerves !! I said (in the back of my mind) that’s it I’m outta here the next day. It was a beautiful sunny day and promised to eventually warm up. Bennie has really taken to those two – hmmmm, might be something to do with the fact that they SPOIL HIM ROTTEN..
MJ and Leona have been making crafts now for quite a number of years and I had no idea how talented they are !! Here they are setting up….
And here is just some of the things they make and sell – absolutely beautiful….
It turned out to be another successful day for them…….
And of course Bennie was extremely helpful as always playing ‘Guard Dog’….
There was someone there selling baby kittens and Bennie was quite intrigued with these strange creatures..
We stopped on the way home for ice cream…..
And immediately got another roaring fire going……..
And watched the sun going down over the lake…….
Obviously there is FOOD going on here somewhere…….
Yes, Another good day at Goose Lake with old friends.
