A Food Blog????????????

        When I inquired about taking a few pictures in a cafe where we were eating today, the gal asked me if I  had a food blog.  If I hadn't have been in public I might have choked. Now....., those who know me best, are now probably rolling around the floor with laughter......Bonnie?  Food blog???? The funniest thing they've ever heard.

It's  not that I have anything against food blogs, or food for that matter, it is just the idea of me writing one. I do not like to shop for groceries. I am not great in the kitchen, and getting worse as time goes on, and I do not care if I eat. Well, I do eat, but not much. 
every once in a while I do enjoy a meal, especially if it is a Belgian waffle, with whipped cream and
strawberries, and an excellent cup of coffee. 

I took a few pictures with my phone, but I have a big problem holding the phone still, and not jiggling, and these are the only two that aren't blurred. This is the Green Elephant Cafe in Kingston, They have just added an addition, which is the picture above. It is bright, and welcoming, and they have the friendliest waitresses. I should have taken a picture of them. One gal, J, had run the Bluenose Marathon in Halifax on the weekend....she totally amazes me.... That is quite a feat. Maybe I will take my camera the next time and do it up right. was absolutely yummy and tasted like more, on another day of course.

It has been nice yesterday and today, with the sun shining most of the time, though there was a little shower this afternoon.  Yesterday I took my walking stick and went for a little walk in the orchard. I don't know how far it is to the pond, but I knew I would need the stick. I took a few pictures but my favourite is the snapper.

I am not sure if he/she was headed to the pond or not, but it went into the grass instead.

Lots of dandelions and blossoms for the bees

These are Gravenstein blossoms

The edge of the pond has lots of these little white, four petalled wild flowers

As long as I am writing about food, here is a little squirrel who is 
always checking out the bird feeder.

Needless to say, he/she is fearless

"Are you going to give me more, huh.......huh?

And then there is this delight.......yummy

Okay....I perhaps should stop here before I get overwhelmed with this whole food thing. (I didn't make it) A friend did, which is a good thing.
Excuse me, I am just going to get a cup of coffee...the elixir of life.......
Not eating.......
Not hungry...........


  1. The food you post looks really yummy.I like using my phone,since it is always with me.

    1. Your lovely pictures are taken with your phone? I am still getting used to mine, and have trouble putting them on my laptop. I'll learn eventually.

  2. Dear Bonnie
    I loved all the photos!

    Thanks so much for the kind words on my last blog post!
    My heart is truly broken and your kind words helped (so wonderful to know people like you care!
    My dear sister has such a burden to bear!!!!


    1. Oh Margie, I wish that I could give you a real hug, and your sister too, for that matter. In a small way, I can feel what you are feeling as I had 2 friends who had ALS. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. That was an unexpected comment, indeed! I started laughing thinking of you almost choking with that comment. The waffle with whipped cream looks sweet and delicious. Haven't had one of those in...whoa...30 years. Maybe it's time again!

    1. It was just that I have never thought of myself as anything more than an every-day-cook, and it just struck me funny. The waffle was delicious, and you really should treat yourself to one. You deserve it. :)
