Saturday at Lowe’s and Beyond

Well what do you do when you are still recovering from lower back pain issues and can’t take your usual long beach walk or long canyon hike? You go with the hubby to one of his favorite spots and take the opportunity to walk and stretch and keep your muscles from painful stiffness.

 

BUT while he is busy looking at tools you escape to the garden department and pretend you’re in an English Garden and take these photos.

 

 

 

 

Then since you are already in Ventura why not have Second Breakfast at your favorite Ventura breakfast spot Allison’s Country Cafe?!

 On the way home we stopped at the Friends of the Library in Camarillo to shop for some bargain books. Here are my two finds for the day.

 

Both of these books have such wonderful illustrations. Dear bought 3 Audel Carpenter’s and Builder’s Library books.

Here’s something for April from Shakespeare and The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.

“Oh; how this spring of love resembleth
The uncertain glory of an April day!
Which now shows all the beauty of the sun
And by and bye a cloud takes all away.”

Two Gentlemen of Verona ~ Shakespeare

Hope you are having a lovely weekend…

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. Olivia gave me the first of your two books – it is just full of the most delightful drawings 🙂 And how nice to have a teeny bit of English garden visit. Hope you are feeling 100% soon.

  2. Hi Ellen, my back pain has almost gone now hope yours does so soon.
    Thank you for your prayers/good wishes, Vicki & family and myself have taken great comfort in the warmth you have offered.

  3. Ellen, These picutres are absolutely gorgeous! Who would’ve guessed you took them at Lowe’s in the garden department? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this time of year with all the beautiful flowers, trees, etc that God have given us!

    Have a great week!
