HOT off the grill TWO!!!! Bridgewater edition

So it’s Sunday and we just got home from morning church and I don’t always like to cook on Sunday unless we have people over or it’s summer and I can put something on the grill that I’ve planned ahead for…besides it’s nice to eat out on Sunday.

Since we were in the city yesterday I didn’t have a plan for today’s lunch and since it’s “Burger Week” in Halifax this week, I thought…why don’t we have another burger today! And why don’t we get take out, because I just felt like staying in.

So…what does Bridgewater have to offer? Besides Wendy’s, Harvey’s, A & W and McDonald’s…I’m NOT having one of those burgers. Hmm? Best Little Oarhouse in Bridgewater has a few burgers on their menu and they are just 5 minutes away…

…I went with “The Rugged Dude” Burger and so did David and James tried the Wilma burger!! They had theirs with home cut fries. It’s fun with friends or family. ( Actually James was in the city yesterday and had Burgers with his friends and went to Darrell’s. His burger yesterday had peanut butter, yummy!!!)

Sunday lunch is served!!

HOT off the grill!!

It’s Burger Week in Halifax!

WHAT’S BURGER WEEK ALL ABOUT YOU ASK?

Halifax’s Annual Burger Week is a city wide burger-eating celebration and fundraiser for Feed Nova Scotia. This year, over 95 restaurants will create unique burger specials for one week only, March 23-29th. Burgers will be either have a set price of $6 OR a higher price with a portion being donated by the restaurant to Feed Nova Scotia. Halifax Burger Week was started in 2013 by Coast Publishing, publisher of The Coast and Food and Drink City Guides.

So…because we are in the city today to do a few errands…

Oh ya, we just HAD to have BURGERS!!!! How to choose? The menu of burgers is so mouth watering…oh yum!!!

But alas, we are only having one…

The Fickle Frog Pub sounded fun and their burger sounded delish!

Introducing the Dribble Drool Burger.

A rustic bun, a 6oz homestyle all beef patty, dijonnaise sauce, guacamole, fresh jalapeños, topped with lettuce, tomato and a dill pickle…a little spicy with a little sweet ❤

And David added a side of home cut fries to his burger…

All I can say is, It’s a good thing I don’t live in the city!!!

 

Oh how I miss…

blossoms in the Spring!!!!

It is so lovely sitting in my living room this afternoon. It truly feels like Spring until you see the snow outside… BUT I do know that the sun is melting it quickly.

Springtime is my absolute FAVOURITE of all seasons!! But, then as each season rolls around I probably say that about each one BUT TRULY, Springtime is a season of freshness and newness of life. Babies are being born,

Here is a pic of a friend’s new baby. How sweet!!

…buds are opening up and ohhhh…the blossoms! The pink blossoms of fruit trees! I absolutely LOVE this time of year.

PLEASE!!! I want to hop on a plane and head to Vancouver, Washington, DC or Beijing!!!! There are pictures popping up on my newsfeed and memories of a Shenyang Spring walking in the park.

Here are some pics that have been popping up of blossoms in the last few days…

Victoria, Canada

Washington, DC

Beijing, China

Ahh…I LOVE them!!!! It takes me back …

Just my sweet remembrance. Hope you’re all having a great week!

 

春分 🌸

It’s Chūn fēn

or the first day of Spring!

Love EVERYTHING about Spring! However we are still getting the COLD here in eastern Canada…

Too far I think because we got MORE snow!!!!!!! ugh….

Believe it or not, today is the First Day of Spring!! You really wouldn’t think so after last night and this morning, here in Nova Scotia.
Now is a great time to start feeding the birds. There have been lots of robins on my lawn. They’re now making their way back to Canada and a feeder is a useful source of food for them on their journey. During this time of the year, birds are able to rapidly gain weight so they have enough energy to fly the far distances required.

Happy 1st Day of Spring! ( ps I put ALL my snowmen decor away so please no more SNOW)

RELAX today!

David & I are sick. We have terrible colds!! Mine is really affecting my sinuses causing me to be so dizzy, and David is congested and coughing and coughing. We are so tired and are not sleeping. Ugh…guess that’s what happens when you go from hot and sunny to freezing and SNOW!!

Yes, more snow!!!! Snow this past week and more snow today!!!

 

So…we are cozy inside RELAXING and chatting about Spring and Summer ideas.

Can’t believe tomorrow is the first day of Spring. Yikes!

Here’s to MORE snow!!! NOT!
