Cold in QC..tea.coffee..French Onion Soup..and ..
Stitched the week away..A Winter Cabin series by Alicia Paulsen
Fun fun book..Draw Your Day..you can see a review here..Samantha Dion Baker.
A lovely little book to get lost in.And be inspired by.
The Canadian price was ap $20.00
The only time I keep something that can loosely be called a journal..is on trips..I have a huge one from2009..but mostly writing..We went to Italy and France.
I have had an ongoing one for 9 yrs..all writing..I plan on burning that one one day..
Most of the time my journals are really just paintings in journals/books or loose leaf that I glue into that BIG one ..You can see my fullest book to my tiniest book.
I admire artists that have all the same books lined up..and filled..I never thought of doing that when I started painting..
So my books are all different except for 2 small Moleskins..I love finding old paintings..like 3 boys on a swing♥
Lucas..is taller than I am now..Max will be soon..Oli will be the tallest of all 4..
Noah ..I am not sure yet..I think he will have a growth spurt!
I like books and paper and colors and pencils and erasers..:)
Lots of memories in them there books y'all;)
Oli comes over when he can on Wednesdays..such a light..a bright light..He does mathématiques with Jacques..and then francais with me..he had a particularly good day this Wednesday..All perfect en maths and all perfect en francais.
He had forgotten his snow pants at home so at recess had to stay on le premier palier(first level outdoors)..I said:" Oh Oli what did your friends do?" He said :"They all stayed with me."
Now does that warm a heart or what?
So after he has his grilled cheese and chocolate milk after school and does some homework..we watch the beginning of a movie to be continued next time..this busy busy boy..reclines on the couch facing me and covers himself up..I snapped an Ipad pic and this happened♥A quick brisk pencil sketch,and watercolor even quicker.He's a sight to behold.5 minutes...yet Jacques made it hiss screensaver.
Look what happens when you convert..
So obvi(new word)..it's pretty darn cold here and I am organizing and painting..
Christmas is nestled..tucked away.
Sometimes I find a new something after Christmas..but you know what? Everything is on sale before Christmas so it's all gone.
I do have to show you a little homekeeping thing I never knew..
When I married Jacques 45 years ago..he had Dansk turquoise pots..I loved them..but w/ wear and tear the only usable one was a small saucepot I gave to my daughter..oh...smaller than a saucepot..like to melt 4 tbsps of butter..
She gave it back to me:):)
I would love to have our whole Turquoise Dansk set back..but no..I have pots and pans..
I did however fall upon this beauty..new..resale on Varage sale..and a very very reasonable price.
When I picked it up the lady said:"Do you know why the covers are made this way?"No I said"..
Look everyone..if you have these..
Genius is all I can say..
PS anyone watching The Kominsky Method?
2 in and I like it.
