Lucky us!

We survived the hurricane - we were prepared within an inch of our lives, but for our area, Earl was a bust of a storm. I don't think winds even hit the predicted 100 km/hr for gusts - and it lasted less than an hour. I know not everyone was so lucky, even just here in the Maritimes, so I'm very thankful and glad that we were prepared. A beautiful side bonus is that the storm cleared off the last bit of oppressive heat & humidity - yesterday morning at 5:30 am, pre-storm, it was 31 Celsius. That is insane for this area. Today is a balmy, gorgeous late summer day - 18 C - the kind we're used to!
Unfortunately, the storm washed out plans for a lot of things over the Labour Day weekend, including the combination Local Food Day/Welcome Mount Allison Students corn boil. The corn boil is cancelled, but Local Food day will take place next weekend, September 11, in concert with the regular Saturday Farmer's Market, for an extended time - from 9am to 1:30 pm. Only the outdoor vendors will be able to stay until 1:30 - the indoor vendors will be leaving at 12, the usual time. If the weather is good, I may be set up outside - we'll have to see!
Supplies: Basic Grey "Basics" - kraft paper, brads
Cheesecloth (perfect fishing net!), lighthouse & sentiment stickers from stash
