r-anne-dom : a place for me (anne) to leave random blog posts.
Such as:
..knitting, sewing, and other random activities pursued
..Girl Guides of Canada : yep, Guiding Lives Here
..the 4 shops on Etsy : one features quality handmade items; the second has lots of patterns, & crafting supplies; the third is stocked with Vintage; and the fourth is guiding flowers.
Enjoy the r-anne-domness!

What the Heck was That?

Years ago I had a "What the Heck was That?" moment.

I was driving in our city and I saw a helicopter overhead carrying something large underneath it ... I watched the news that night, and searched online and in newspaper print and saw nothing to explain it.

Everyone I asked had not seen it.

I was SO curious but eventually forgot about it.

Until last night.  On the news, they talked about how local farmers could not get onto their wet fields to put in the seed for their winter wheat.

So they were seeding using a helicopter - and suddenly!  There it was!  That image from so many years ago!

It was something like this:

Apparently, farmers sometimes use helicopters to seed their fields, or use it to fertilize their fields.

Mystery solved.

Fall Leaves

Cozy Nights

Aromas of baking filling the kitchen

Sadly signalling an end to summer but bringing promises of Thanksgiving, Christmas, snuggly hats and mittens, Girl Guide winter camp (indoors!) and all else we look forward to with the changing of the season ... while fondly remembering the season past.
