Bounce (Random 5 Friday)

It is impossible to live pleasurably without living prudently,
and honorably and justly;
or to live prudently, and honorably and justly,
without living pleasurably.

There are so many advantages to experiencing a life in two very different worlds. My time in the city, and then back home on the farm, where I bounce back and forth gathering bits and pieces along the way make for a very interesting life indeed.

1-The city of Toronto Ontario is very beautiful with its unique traditional architecture and its constantly changing skyline.

2- You will find many unusual things in St. Lawrence Market. I was surprised and I am a farmer.

3- The trip home holds many surprises. A long line of heavy traffic stopped and waited as a large congregation of Canadian Geese took their sweet time getting to the other side.

4- Waking up in the morning to enjoy the view that I love makes me happy.

5- My cows were very happy to see me back home. I was happy to see them too.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Today I am joining my friend Nancy at Random 5 Friday.



  1. Perfect post for Friday ...
    Love those geese - and the look on your cows face is so good too!

    Enjoy your weekend

    All the best Jan

  2. Big smiles. Have a wonderful weekend.
    Love that the geese stopped the traffic.

  3. Buttons,

    Your animals know the weather is suppose to change for the good this weekend.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. So...did you try the crocodile? Knowing your adventurous spirit, maybe you did?!! :)

  5. I don't know why I'm surprised to see Australian Crocodile for sale there, after all, we get tinned Canadian Salmon down here.
    I've never tried crocodile, but my daughter K has, and says it's quite nice. She has also tried camel and told me she never would again.

  6. Well I never!
    Australian crocodile meat..never tasted it and didn't even know it was sold! Learn something everyday :)

  9. It's nice to visit other places but always wonderful to get back home.

  10. You are so right that you are lucky to experience both the "city life" and the "country life" and isn't it nice to find a little of the "country" in the "city" with the St. Lawrence Market and the wandering gaggle of geese? I find I get my batteries recharged with a visit to a city, especially Toronto, since that's where I grew up and will always be "home" on some level. Yet it is so nice to come back to the slower pace in what is really home--where we live and where our closest loved one is.

  11. Experiencing both worlds . . . city and country . . . I like that experience too.
    I am especially fond of knowing which sits best in my soul . . .

  12. Looks like lots of goslings in that group. Pretty faces to welcome you home. Glad you had time with family.

  13. I always feel the same when we leave our country life to go to the big city in Texas or even our spot in The Netherlands. I think that I could live in all three places and luckily do not have to choose at this moment. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  14. I'm glad you appreciate the city and the farm for what they have to offer. The differences keep life exciting. When J and I went to Denver in January of 2015, we were both glad that we live in a rural area. It's much more peaceful when one doesn't have so much traffic and people to deal with.

    It's always nice to be welcomed home by your favorite animals.

    I hope you enjoyed your trip, Miss B. Did you buy some crocodile meat?

  15. Great shot of the gaggle of geese!
