Saturday, not in a park, but feeling like the 4th of July


Today it is an amazing 27 degrees with a good stiff breeze and heaps of sunshine. LOVIN' IT! That an the iced coffee I had whilst out knitting with my girls....thats was nice too. We were at Cafe Depot out on the terasse soaking up sun, comparing knits, knitting and telling stories. It was loverly.
Then I came home, ran Thing Two to a slumber party, came home and was offered delicious beer by the Hman. He had a selection of beers from Dieu Du Ciel microbrewery in St Jerome. OMG. The Rosee d'Hibiscus was extraordinary. I shit you not...the best beer I have ever laid lips on. Its RED! Rd'H is a wheat beer on lees with hibiscus flowers, hence the name. Light and refreshing and tasty. Perfect for a hot day. I am HOOKED on this beer. Its fantastic and if I am lucky available here in town.
Then I got into the garden. I added a couple of bags of store bought black earth from the grocery to a garden bed after cleaning out the old tomato plants etc from last year. I set up some support for the snow peas and planted them, spinach, radishes, and some lettuce. Now I am pooped and rerady for some supper and more beer?

I'm writing that beer recommendation down. I don't drink it much, except for in the summer. Have you found a location that sells it?
