Blog-Cation is Over!
Since we last posted, we have been on a mini-blogation. *We were totally un-plugged for 5 days!)
Besides writing the blog, trying to update our website, facebook posts and apply for new festivals and events, and cooking all the stuff that Beary Good Stuff sells, I also write Penelope – The Cat From Hell blog.
Penelope has a demanding, Siamese voice and is hard to ignore. Penelope (known to her followers as Nellie), has not taken kindly to have a new cat/kitten in the house and has been on a “Run Away World Tour” visiting a number of her furrends in various countries across the world. This was NOT allowed to stop during the last month, Even when we were extremely swamped with Canning and farm markets and labeling.
This, combined with getting ready for the Hill’s Garlic Festival (in New Denver, BC) has kept us extremely busy and I have not had an opportunity to do much more than updates on what we have for sale each week. We are hoping (now that things are less of a frenetic pace) we will continue to post recipes, photo montages and details of creating and using our Stuff.
What we did on our Blog-Cation
We went to New Denver 2 days early (this was our first major event), as we knew we would be excited and extra time would help settle our nerves. When Sunday was all over, we stayed an extra day so we could do some sight seeing and get to know another part of the wonderful area we live in –better.
We saw the Toad Migration at Summit Lake and continued up Hwy 6 to visit the Hot Springs at Nakusp, BC. If you ever get a chance to see this part of the world, jump at it!
Whilst in New Denver, we went through the Nikkei Internment Centre. The Nikkei Centre is one of the Japanese Internment Centres that has been reconstructed as a museum exhibit.
The Campground where we stayed is very close to the Kohan Refection Garden. It has been built and maintained by the citizens of New Denver. We are lucky to have such a wonderful piece of authentic Japanese Culture available in our country. We will include some shots of the festival the Garden in a later post!
Thanks for continuing to read our blog and expect some exciting posts, including how we make Hot’n Candy!
