Some Baking And Painting..because it rained and will snow:(EGADS.
Today should be ok to finish up a few outdoor things..
And yesterday we did have some sun..
(note re the gloves..because of our rotten weather..I only tried them once and I give them a green thumbs up for my roses)
Marie's refrigerator muffins are delicious..you can find the recipe here:)
Thank you Marie!
Twigg Studios Anzac Cookies are simply addictive..printed..and in my forever book.
Diane Morrisey's Strawberry Balsamic vinaigrette is fresh and delicious.She's on IG..worth following for sure.
Here you go:)
The only blooms here.. scillas..oh lala..what a Spring..had a good garden clean up day yesterday but it was cold.
Poor flood victims..I won't complain about garden clean up..c'est tragique pour eux.
Life goes on for the unaffected and I applaud the volunteers.
But we sip our coffees in our warm homes while others froze with flooded homes in the rain.
One of my daughters and her son went to fill sandbags..which is unfortunately something we can't do.
The outpouring of volunteers was heartwarming to see..
Kids on bikes going around the neighbourhoods asking if people needed help.
Unfortunately this isn't a once in a lifetime thing anymore.
Flood season..and scilla season.
Sometimes I wonder where I would learn things without the internet..blogging..Pinterest and IG:)
All the recipes..books..stitchery..gardening..painting..
Not to mention photography.
Thank you everyone:)
(that's Oli's blanket for his 10th bday in Sept..I was concerned I would not finish it by Sept..but once you start..YOU CAN'T STOP:)..out of the blue and I am sure he won't remember and will hope that's not his real gift on his bday..he said..Oh can I have one?..Your wish is my command thought nana;))
I also wanted to share something with you..who also like to paint..
I had painted these girls.. omitting the eyes because I hate painting faces..
when I showed Jacques the cards he admired them..in his own way:) So it's not admiration..it's encouragement really..but he said:"There are no faces" ..LOL I said I hate adding eyes etc..I ruin them..
He suggested I make a copy and practice..it's amazing how confident you are when you can erase:)First try..:)
Just thought IN case you have the same fears..my engineer found a quick solution..never even thought about it..just said it:)
Just black and white draft quality..and They actually looked kind of ok in black and white..but that defeats the purpose of watercolor;)
I also like an hour or two of TV at night..
Last night's Game Of Thrones..was dark and way too violent.
Is it necessary?
Not in my mind.
Did I mention dark?Could not see a thing.
And he looks like my vision of what the devil has looked like all my life.
Maybe I am just not into fantasy and violence.
Give me Call The Midwife.
Have a good week!
PS I received a very sweet email from a girl../blog I followed and she followed me.
I rarely get new posts from many of the blogs I used to follow.
This email ..well she mentioned WordPress was not that friendly to posting comments and that's why I have not heard from her and vice versa .
Hmmm..that's realy too bad.
