Friday Fave Five #10

Here we are again...
Where has the time flown?
So many things seem to keep making my life interesting.
Thanks to Susanne over at Living to tell the Story
for being such a gracious host, allowing us to share our highlights.

#1. Hope River Classic.
Judy from My Front Porch
joined me for an 8K run last Saturday.
She's always game for anything.
This run was held in order to raise
awareness and raise funds for the BC Spina Bifida Association.
We were able to help kids with disabilities.
"Finishing is Winning"

#2. A Visit from our Mayor.
She is not only our Mayor, but also a close friend.
She dropped in with her husband while riding their bikes.
We are always entertained by her down to earth attitude.
Our family has appreciated their friendship over the past 15 years.
Go Green Girl!

#3. I have never seen such an enormous sunflower.
Isn't it beautiful?

#4. A quiet day at the lake.
We rode our bikes to Harrison yesterday.
Spent a couple of hours eating lunch and relaxing.
I love this photo of an elderly couple enjoying the view.

#5. You've heard of Agassiz Corn?
Well that's how they haul it to the market.
No wonder at Agassiz Fall Fair,
you will always meet the Corn King.

It's been a good warm week, but the evenings are beginning
to announce that Fall is in the air.
Jump over to Susanne's and check out what she's doing.

Hope you all had a great week.


  1. Great post, Marg! I'm impressed - you can run 8K! I would be lucky to walk it ...

    I love the picture you took of the couple sitting by the lake! I adore pictures of water.

    I also love sunflowers so of course I liked the picture you shared!

  2. It looks like you enjoyed a fine week of summer! Good snapshots.

    What we won't do for a free shirt, eh? Smile.

  3. Good morning Marg! You go girl with your 8K, I'd keel over after a couple blocks. I could walk it at a good pace :0) It's great that you stay so active.
    I never have heard of Agassiz corn.
    Love the photos.

  4. We have the famous Taber corn around our area. I haven't even had it yet this year. The weather has made it late but now you've got me thinking of it. Might have to make a special trip to a stand later today!

    Your lake is beautiful. I could spend all day somewhere like that.

    Look at you run! Good for you!

  5. This post was the best of living in the country. . .you really live in the heart of the valley .. .gorgeous pictures. . .awesome friend and delicious food.

  6. An 8K run? Good for you! The sunflower is gorgeous.

  7. I love the sunflower. Good for you and the 8K run :) Have a great Friday :) Aloha

  8. Congratulations on the 8K race! That is a beautiful sunflower. They are all fun pics.

  9. I've never heard of Agassiz corn. How wonderful of you and your friend to run for a good cause. That is such a great week you had!

  10. Good job on the run!

    I enjoyed the pictures of capturing every day life and the little things that are so appreciated like a view of the lake...and that wonderful sunflower! Isn't it awesome how they turn their face toward the sun?

  11. 8K run! WOW! Good for you!!

    I've always been intrigued by sunflowers and how enormous they get. Someday maybe I'll try to grow one?

    A quiet day by the lake... sounds perfectly lovely!

    Happy Weekend!
