The Pea Patch Gals played hooky on Thursday, February 28, visiting the Calgary Home and Garden Show. It was a day of a lot of walking, shopping, some great food and a lot of laughs. Here are some highlights of our day:
While waiting for the doors to open, (we were early!?!), my sister thought it would be funny to make the geese come closer to where I was standing. (Those of you who know me, know of my extreme loose bird dislike.)
Iguana statuary for the garden, and a really cool patio umbrella that Mom needs. (If you are reading Dad, hint, hint.)
MMM, lunch time! We had a chicken parmigiano from one of the food trucks. It was great! I loved this little meditating frog, so much I had to stop and take a picture - well I was doing that all day - but he made the final cut into the blog post and newsletter :)
Karen loves terrariums, and this little beachy one was really cool. I hope to put it on our short list of things to build this year. I love fences that are a little out of the ordinary, and we are due to replace ours soon. I really like these horizontal boards.
But wait, there's more! A day wouldn't be complete without funky pink polka dotted golf shoes and eggplant penguins! Haha, we may have heard that a few times over the course of the day.
All in all we had a great time, solved the hose problem (we hope) in the greenhouse - we bought one of the shrinking hoses, and will be armed and dangerous with our new slicers come sauerkraut making time! (I've used my slicer a few times already - it's handy!)
