It's July 1st, 2009

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians.
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 .. ..
All for now. . .

  6. What you have disposed of it?
    We have a Flag Shop right close to my house.
    Maybe you need to drive by later and see what all the ruckus has been at our home....
    Our very first Canada Flag will be hoisted today....!

    What is an Arabian tent?
    We have trees and wind, but why do you sit in a tent?

    I'm smelling something....Scones?

  12. Such festive goings on! Raspberry scones is a great way to do celebrational colors. I would have guessed Maple scones,(my favorite Starbucks treat) but you did much better.

    In a few years the grands will be able to decorate their trikes and bikes and hold a parade for everyone. Time will fly...that's for sure.

    So happy that the northern neighbors are still free and safe.

  13. Happy Holiday. Are some of those flowers Sweet Williams? I have that name in my mind but can't remember what they look like. We are all Americans and am fond of all things Canadian. Been there one time.

  15. Those scones made me want to reach through the computer...they looked so good! All of you have pride and loyalty toward your country. I like that. I like that you proudly wave your flag. I like that you celebrate your freedom. And in my mind, a wiener roast would be the perfect way to end the day. Happy Canada Day to you and your family.

  17. I've had a couple of people in my world ask me what is up with the Canadians having weiner roasts all the time.
    I told them I haven't a clue...maybe it is code for something they don't want us to know about :-*
