Brown Breakfast

Ben's almond meal cake, v3; this time with cocoa nibs and further reduced sugar. He has his with Wild Maine Blueberry Jam and a touch of yogurt; I with Hot Pepper Jelly and roasted-by-me plums. Plates sent from my cousin in Japan.

Also today, it's the second time this season we have the fire going. But the first time, Saturday, didn't count because we weren't cold, just so wet and soggy from all the rain. Today is actually a perfect garden day for me, still, chilly and overcast, but I want to do inside things, so I'm calling it "almost raining".

Empty Bench

It's not like a secret place but quite nice place to relax in the park we all know.

Cold Ummmm...

Thursday started out cool, almost cold, then by mid-afternoon turned hot and humid. I guess some folks needed whatever this was. Bridge & Collingwood Streets' Four Spirits Corner, where there used to be three pubs and a church.

Don't know where you'll end up but it's a risk I was willing to take for NDP. Farmers Department Store, Buxton Square entrance.

Pic's Peanut Butter

My (Meg's) Philosophy Professor and the Mrs from Minnesota have been visiting Nelson and the Mrs found out abuot our peanut butter factory tours, so we went Friday morning. We knew such thing existed but, you know, it's one of those things you wait for a keen visitor to want to see.

Pics started in one man's house not so long ago but now it's in a spiffy sesmi-automated factory, but soon they will have a much bigger factory with five fully automated production lines nearby. The tour is interesting, full of Pic's history, but not overlong, so perfect not only for peanut butter afficionados but also for kids. Free, but must book ahead.
