A Lovely Afternoon

This afternoon we went to the Cabbagetown Art & Crafts Sale which was located at Riverdale Farm.  Cabbagetown is a neighborhood in Toronto with a vibrant arts community.  The weather was wonderful and we enjoyed strolling through the park looking at the various items offered by so many talented artisans.  Of course, not everything was to our taste but I'm always amazed at how wonderfully creative people are.  We picked up a gift for some friends who are expecting their first baby in September.

While we were at the sale, we decided to check out Riverdale Farm itself.  It was really neat there.  We were able to see the animals out in their various paddocks as well as go into some of the farm buildings.  We saw horses, cows, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens and roosters, a turkey, and some geese.  Unfortunately I didn't bring my camera so I couldn't take pictures of the charming grounds.  We plan on going back to the farm another day this fall so I'll take my camera then.

It's great to get out and do things on the weekends even if it's just for a couple of hours.  How do you spend your free time on the weekends?
