The edge of the roof on St John’s Anglican Church, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
Some of you may remember that this lovely lady suffered a devastating fire onHallowe’en night, 2001. This site has been a place of worship ever since the Town of Lunenburg was settled in 1753. It would have been an easy decision to tear down what remained, and build a spanking new church in its place. So, it is a great credit to the community (of the church, the town, the province and the country) that the decision was taken to do the right thing – not the easy thing. Instead, a massive and completely sympathetic restoration was undertaken and completed in 2005.
And here she stands. Lovely on a foggy September evening.
It started out foggy here this morning. You can see the fog is still laying off shore, waiting to make its way back in this evening. That’s typical weather for us on hot summer days.
I took advantage of the cool fog to head into the vineyard and start the trimming and tieing up. And wow! That’s five rows done! I’m so pleased. The fog had retreated and it was mighty hot by the time I’d finished, but a satisfying accomplishment nonetheless.
Then to clean the chicken coop, because who enjoys a dirty coop (especially in this heat and humidity)?! Now it’s all cleaned up, with fresh bedding and even some rose petals sprinkled in the nesting boxes. I collected 4 eggs for my efforts there.
A load of laundry on the line, the kitchen cleaned up and supper is ready. And the anticipation seeing #1 son, who will be home for dinner tonight. What could make this day any better?
An hour or so of quiet time on the porch swing in the shade (feet in the warm sun), a light breeze, my book and cuppa, surrounded by roses. That’s my cherry on top!
I know. I know. The rose bushes need a trimming, too. I’ll save that for tomorrow. 😉
