Yes…I know. The gorgeous amazing weather today was just a tease of what is to come…
BECAUSE here on the East Coast of Canada it is just a little too early to have temperatures as nice as this. That’s ok, today was the most enjoyable day!
The next few days will be cooler but I am just so thankful for today. One day for some “garden therapy” and to anticipate the wonderful season that will soon be here. Which means, I better get some things done inside so that when the weather is nice like this again I can be outside!
It started this afternoon, and today and tomorrow and maybe even Wednesday morning are gonna be nice! I mean sunny and warm temperatures! It has been so cold and grey and snowy here that once again everyone is talking about the weather…”WAIT TILL TUESDAY… IT’S GONNA BE NICE”
This afternoon the thermometer on my back deck was almost 20 degrees. The crocus flowers were in bloom and David went for a ride! He actually took our daughter Laura for a ride. She’s living at home again for a while and has never been on his bike.
Ahh… I love this kind of weather!
I even got out my lounge chair and just maybe tomorrow I can spend a little time there!
April 6th is National Tartan Day—a day for celebrating the contributions to our country of the more than four million Canadians who have Scottish ancestry. Canada joins with many other countries around the world, recognizing the achievements of their citizens who hail from Scotland. National Tartan Day is celebrated annually on April 6, the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath, the Scottish declaration of independence, in 1320.
The tartan is a traditional woolen fabric woven in patterns that look checkered or striped (plaid) All of Canada’s provinces and territories, except for Nunavut have provincial tartans.
Canada’s national tartan, the Maple Leaf Tartan, was created in 1964 by David Weiser in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of Confederation in 1967. It was proudly worn by Canadians for many years and elevated to official status in 2010.
While I don’t have any Canadian Tartan ( I really need to get something) I have many things that are Nova Scotia Tartan, so I’ll be wearing tartan all day!
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!!!)
