Oh #quebeccity you gave us an awesome send off! Perfect ending to a wonderful #ineededthisvacation ! Now it's cappuccinos on the balcony (yes decafe ๐Ÿ˜‰) before leaving early tomorrow. Hope somebody fed the dobermans ๐Ÿ˜‚. #blessed #aurevoirquebeccity
23+ miles on the awesome Shannon bike trail. It was mostly crushed gravel (can you hear my thighs crying?) But a beautiful ride complete with a path-side cafe! The red caboose was a water and rest stop. Next stop the Montmorency Falls Park. 60 more stairs to the bridge ๐Ÿ˜ฅ (btw I took 6 steps on to it, snapped the pic, and ran like a freak to solid ground๐Ÿ˜‚). Joe's at the bottom via tram taking more pics...me?๐Ÿ˜ด #ineedavacationfrommyvacation #blessed #ilovequebec

A bit of today's adventures: yes we walked up the looonnngg winding cobblestone streets to the Chateau Frontenac, yes that waterfall is taller than Niagara falls, no we're not in Kansas anymore Toto, yes that's the view from the top of the over 300 steps we climbed on the Governor's promenade ๐Ÿ˜ฅ, and yes Nancy...zoom in on the name of the life boat on that freighter...Umiak (A boat for many menโ™ชโ™ซ)1! An awesome, if exhausting day with my honey! Now we're headed to the hot tub๐Ÿ›€! #ineededthisvacation #blessed #ohmypoorcalfmuscles #quebeccity

Oh poutine๐Ÿ˜ how have I not known you for 50-some-odd years?? We just met and already you have won my cholesterol-clogged heart! #poutine #yum #yummy #goodeats #wherehaveyoubeenallmylife #quebeccity #eatwhatyoulove

Of course I brought my tricked out traveling hexi kit with me! I love these Colonial Thimble Pads. Self stick, multi use, leather thimbles. They last forever and I don't have to worry about if my fingers get fat then the regular thimble doesn't fit๐Ÿ˜‚. Anybody else ever use these? # sewing #sewingtool #quilting #hexilove #handsew #slowsewing #thimbles

Headed off for a few days in Quebec! #Nanook is, of course, along for the trip! Keep your eyes peeled...he's a total photo-bomber!  PS...If you're thinking of robbing our house while we're away go ahead.  We didn't leave much chow for the Dobermans... #weneedavacation #gottagetaway #gottagetawaysometimes

Baking me up some scone love this morning! Coconut, cinnamon chip, blueberry, and plain ๐Ÿ™ˆ. (FYI I  say scone like "cone" ๐Ÿ˜‰) I love using @capellaflavorsinc drops in my baking! Grab your coffee and come on over! #thegreatsconedebate #scone #scones #yesIcallthisbreakfast #homebaked #eatwhatyoulove #goodeats #ilovemesomescones #yummy #yum
This is my sewing sharps jar. It contains every dull or bent pin and every broken or dull needle from since I started quilting. I keep thinking I should toss it but I'm kinda attached to it. I mean we have history and all...I'm a mess! #sewing #quilting #sewingtools #hoarders #ithinkineedtherapy

That moment when you think "ahhh...got all those little lovlies!" And then as you're straightening up, out of the corner of your eye...could it be?? Yes!  You catch a glimpse of luscious red deep down inside the tomato plant! You've come this far!  You just can't leave that perfect one sitting on the vine for the squirrels to get! #darnmosquitos #morningharvest #organicgardening #organicgarden #eatwhatyougrow #eathealthy #growwhatyoulove #growwhatyoueat #summerfood #summerharvest

She loves to find the juiciest ones and just pop them in her mouth! #teachthemtogarden #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #growwhatyoulove #summerfood #eathealthy #organicgarden #organicgardening #kidsgarden #kidsgardening #harvest #lovethiskid
There are thousands of motorcycles here (the ground literally rumbles when they all start up!), thousands of different people from every walk of life yet we all come together for this: WE WILL NEVER FORGET! #thankyouforyourserviceandsacrifice #thankyouforyourservice #selfless #somegaveall #alllgavesome #firstresponders #firefighter #police
For the next 4-5hours this is my ride. That's Tom my 70 year old neighbor. He is a left leg amputee and yet every year we do the #ctunitedride honoring those who gave their lives on 9/11 and those first responders who selflessly guard our safety every day. WE WILL NEVER FORGET! #thankyouforyourserviceandsacrifice #thankyouforyourservice #selfless #somegaveall #alllgavesome #firstresponders #firefighter #police
This was today's harvest. That ginormous cuke is what happens when you don't peep under every leaf on the vine!

Joe started the potato harvest today. That's about half our crop. If you haven't ever before had potatoes fresh from the garden you have no idea what you're missing! They are really one of the easiest things to grow: in the ground, in a tub, in a #selfwateringcontainer...check out  @learngrowedseries for other simple ways to grow your own food! #freshisbest #lovethatman #lovethatmanofmine #growwhatyoueat #growwhatyoulove #eatwhatyougrow #potato #potatoes #gardening #organicgardening #garden #organicgarden #goodeats #yummy #yum #fallfood #thebigharvest #harvest
