I went into visit Granny with my Mom on Saturday. It was great to see her. She is doing so well, it just makes me smile to think about it. She looks great and she's getting back into the things she used to love to do, like reading, doing word searches and writing in her diary.
We got up early and took a drive back to the Grand Bend Flea Market on Sunday. I absolutely love this market. You can buy antiques, baked goods, Egyptian sheets, Crocs, movies, books, garden decor, blinds, knives, purses, belts, clothes, socks, and all kinds of other items. We specifically went back to get pepperettes and Joel wanted to get a belt buckle. He found one he liked, and I got my fix of pepperettes and Joe even got a couple of tools. One of the nicest things about this market too is the AWESOME local produce. There is nothing better than eating something that you know was grown right here in Ontario. If you don't buy local - you should - you will notice a HUGE difference in taste and quality. We also saw some old friends of ours when we were walking through the market so it was nice to get caught up with them. (Hi Keith and Linda!) We also stopped at Dale's Antique Market. OMG - this place is amazing. The furniture and antiques in this place are beautiful. There were only about 200 things that I wanted!!!! I could not get over the quality of the items in the market. There was this beautiful queen sized bed frame that had huge balls on the head and foot board, and these balls were the size of a large cabbage. I could not get over it. It was BEAUTIFUL (now to win the lottery so I can totally throw out all my stuff and redecorate from Dale's market!) You should check the place out if you are ever back in Grand Bend. It's definitely worth the stop. Then we headed home and Joe did some yard work, but I'll be honest..I was a couch potato for most of the afternoon - I did some laundry and worked on the puzzle a bit - and I even had a nap! It certainly was a lazy Sunday afternoon. Hope your Sunday was enjoyable as well. Chow for now Jacqui

Then the next night you drain off the water and mix up the syrup which is vinegar and sugar and green food colouring. You pour that over the pickles. You put the pickling spice in cheese cloth and let it sit in the liquid. You do this each night reserving the liquid and then on the 11th day, you boil the syrup one last time and put them in jars and pour the liquid over top! Voila pickles!!!!
I brought a couple of small jars into a couple of my friends at work and they said they were good – so that’s good to hear! We were joking around saying next year I should make a bucket of red, a bucket of green, a bucket of purple and a bucket of yellow pickles and then put them in a jar together to make rainbow pickles!!!! We’ll see!

150 Years for North Middlesex
I must admit though – I would have enjoyed it more if the master of ceremonies had of turned the volume down on his microphone about 20 notches.
Here are some pictures from the parade
This was one of the first "floats" coming past us in the parade. I thought the horse was absolutely beautiful, so I had to take his picture!
One of the pipe bands in the parade. A parade is NOT complete without a good pipe band!
Some of the Mocha Shriner's. The Shriner's are always so good to come and participate in parades every where. I loved the Hillbilly look of their float!
Here is Janet Johnstone. She is one of the members of the Parkhill Horticultural Society who are instrumental in ensuring Parkhill looks beautiful in bloom!
Funky little vehicles are always a nice addition to any parade.
Now this is definitely the ultimate party vehicle!!! A picnic table on wheels!
Another Shiner addition to the parade. This particular float was sponsored by the Shriner's who's focus is on helping the mentally handicapped. A cause near and dear to my heart.
This classic vehicle belongs to Clinton Gilbert. He just so happens to be one of our neighbours!! He has many many antique vehicles and tractors. It was nice to see him in the parade!
