A Blessing


For that which we are about to eat, may we be truly thankful.

Granville Island, Vancouver, B.C.

“Some hae meat and canna eat, –

And some wad eat that want it;

But we hae meat, and we can eat,

Sae let the Lord be thankit.”

Robert Burns

    • I love the intoxicating smell of markets. Music, food, crafts and laughter! What better combination could there be!! Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit and joining the conversation!!


  1. I see you have quoted Robert Burns. I was not acquainted with this poem but have studied a little about “To a Mouse” and “To a Louse”–both worth reflection. It is my understanding that the title “Of Mice and Men” came from “To a Mouse.” But, I regress–but who better to write your quote than Bobby Burns.


    • My favorite Robbie Burns is his toast to the Haggis!! But that will come in January…stay tuned…more to come!


    • We buy locally too! Vancouver has several farmer markets in the summer time. And then there is one “indoor” farmer’s market when the weather turns cold!


  2. What a wonderful place to shop! I wish we had one here. I noticed you said you have an indoor farmer’s market there. I was just thinking about that the other day, wishing we had one of those too. 🙂


    • The subject of food distribution is something that I have always been interested in…you just gave me another post idea! Going forward, this topic will become ever more important. The big questions that our children will face: who will share the food, the clean water and freshest air! Thanks so much for stopping by – I love seeing your beautiful gravatar!


      • I agree! … and I can’t wait to see that post. The photo I have for my gravatar is of some larkspur I grew about 6 years ago. Larkspur is one of my favorite flowers. It comes in so many different vibrant colors. And keeps its color even after drying it.
