A walk to the post office.. some cuties..
I'm about 4000 steps to my post office.. about a 20 min walk or less.. ap 3 kms.. there and back.Town is just a few blocks further..
We walk by the waterfronts which I have always loved..
Some are McMansions..but very few..most are from way back and they are my faves..no real mansions on our way and I love that.
Having been a realtor for ap 30 yrs..I loved my share of waterfronts and showed many to my husband..he's an inland guy...
Once you pass the village.. the properties become even larger and so do the homes..I am fond of the smaller charming ones..
I was lucky to see so many homes here in my 30 yrs career as a realtor.I picked up ideas.. I also couldn't believe how many people never used heir gorgeous kitchens..or lit their fireplaces..(Gets too dirty..messy)..
Is this not the sweetest again? A card sent..Just because..These Signature Hallmark cards are just works of art.They pop open:)Snail Mail will never go out of style.Thank you so much.I wonder if anyone can guess who sent it?
If you want to make cute Mary Engelbreight style cherry cookies.. just make your fave cookies..cut with a scalopped cutter.. on half.. make cute little dot details and I used my macaron Wilton tip to make the holes.. the pastry chef I was inspired by is..LesAteliersToqués @lesatelierstoques on IG.
She made her own jam filling..I had some already.
I love baking what can I say..? My husband weighs ap 155 lbs.. super fit..eats everything in moderation..So I can't bake a lot..I wait until he finishes things:)
I'll be baking for the weekend.. a festive one..so not just for us.
Anyone else deeply admire and respect doctors who are human?Who care..who take the time with you?
I'm one of those people ..
I have sometimes hit the jackpot.
Many times not.
Sure makes you appreciate the gems even more.
Still painting my people.
I have quite a collection:)
I love looking back on them.
Not because they are Picassos lol but because I remember liking the photos of the people and enjoying painting them.
Have a very good week..It's brisk today..26F.
One of my paintings this week was of Jeannette..
Jeannette is a perfectly bilingual Montrealer.81 years young.She has lived in Vancouver,Paris,Boston,the South of France ,Hudson and Montreal.She loves yoga and walks every day no matter what the weather is like.She volunteers at a well known hospital on the palliative care floor.She reads to them,holds their hand,and listens attentively to their life stories.She never ever misses a day💕
Based on a true person.
