Geocaching, an urban or rural adventure

I have for a long time wanted to try geocaching with my family. Think of geocaching as a high tech treasure hunt using a GPS instead of a smelly map made of leather with an X drawn on it. It has been an activity that has captured both the young and adult for some time, but there seems to be a surge of treasure hunting with the advent of GPS enabled smartphones.

Plant tomato plants in an upside down planter

tomatoplantfrontEven though I have a backyard we still like to grow vegetables, herbs and potatoes in containers. It is nice to have edibles close by. Last year I bought two upside down planters to grow tomatoes, but never got a chance to get them started until this spring. So this year we decided to do it for a fun experiment for the family. My daughter thought it was a funny way for plants to grow.

Letterboxing

I'm not quite sure how it all started, but I think I was reading an article in one of those airline magazines on my way to somewhere when I discovered letterboxing.  There were several elements that intrigued me: nature, treasure hunting, and stamp making.  I prefer good old clues than trying to find something with a GPS and I like the notion that all you leave behind and take with you are prints of stamps, either hand made or store bought.  I'm going to give you some simple info about letterboxing, which is a fun to do with the whole family!

Make Fall Scarecrows

fallscarecrowfrontThis weekend we made our garden ready for fall. We planted mums and kale for our garden and decorated our garden with scarecrows. As always we try to keep this fun for the kids. This time we made fall scarecrows out of old kids clothing, and picked leaves in our backyard for to fill our scarecrows with.

Happy Halloween !

I have to say I love this time of year with all the fall colors and this great North American tradition. As a foreigner I’m so grateful to you Canadians and Americans for teaching me about all your Halloween traditions and showing me how you celebrate. We have decorated our front porch and picked our pumpkin and are ready for Halloween tonight .

Happy Halloween everyone!
