Since I'm writing this the evening before. . .
scheduling it to be published at 4:00 AM PST (for my eastern friends).. .
I am showing you the flag that will be put up on Canada Day tomororw. .or today for you. .
This last years flag has seen storms. . .
rain. . hail. . wind. . .and two trimmings and mendings.
Every now and then. . .I find it on my sewing machine. . .
waiting for a bit of a wash and trimming of the fringe.
It's always nice to get the flag flying at regulation size once more.
Do you all remember what the proper etiquette is for disposal of our flag?
Well. . .it's not happening this year.
We've decided to wash it and put it away for the worst of the winter. . .
and call it up for some hard service. . .
and then we'll do the proper disposal after that.
This is something else that I've pulled out of archives.
I'm making up a batch of scone dough tonight. . .
and in the morning. .
I'll go pick some fresh raspberries. .
and bake up some Canada Day Raspberry Scones for our breakfast.
The flowers are properly ready to celebrate. .
I have to admit. ..when I selected flowers this year. .
I thought about today's post.
The "ornamental" Japanese flowering Cherry tree that was yanked from it's position in the front yard when it decided it wasn't going to just be an ornament anymore. . .is ready.
Ah .. .it's all good.
After the eggs are gathered. . .
we'll settle under our Arabian tent and watch the goings on at the farm.
(do come back to hear about that)
Later. . .we'll get out the farm truck ..
and mosey over to a good old fashioned wiener roast.
I'd say. ..that'll be about as perfect of a Canada Day as I'd ever want.
God . .keep our land. . .
glorious. . and free. . .
OH. . .Canada .. ..
