Happy Thanksgiving


 
Happy American Thanksgiving to all my wonderful family and friends south of the border. As on our own Canadian Thanksgiving last month today is a moment to be thankful not only for the love of family and friends but for all those heroes working tirelessly on the frontline saving lives. With the coming new leadership that path in the woods will surely lead to happier, healthier and more hopeful days ahead but my thoughts today are of course on the six hundred and sixty six children and their families for whom this Thanksgiving Day is very much the opposite of happy. Keep them in your thoughts today too.

12 new leaves and family


 

666...in progress – Day XXVII

After drawing today’s 12 leafs I was lucky enough to be able to spend an afternoon with our two beautiful grandchildren. I couldn’t help thinking about the separated children the leaves represent and how important it is to keep them and their families in our thoughts each every day until they are all reunited.
 

a weekend to remember


 
So much to be grateful for as we spent this wonderful weekend with our daughter and granddaughter on Vancouver Island where we visited the East Sooke Regional Park, and Witty’s Lagoon Regional Park in Metchosin. It was love, love, love for every glorious precious moment ❤️
 

 

 

 

 

love, art, joy

  
 
Could there be a better way to start the weekend than creating art with my beautiful granddaughter on only our third visit this year. ❤️❤️❤️

family is everything

So many great memories from a wonderful family week…
 

…especially cousin time…

…and ending today with the artist at work in the studio with her own original leaf creations from start to finish.

We miss them both already and hope we are together again soon.

❤️❤️❤️

in the key of ❤️ encore


 
What a treat to have our beautiful daughter and granddaughter visiting for the first time since January, and what a beautiful bracelet my granddaughter made for me as a present.

❤️❤️❤️

making every minute count


 
Every minute nothing but pure joy and love from the early morning hug to the bedtime kisses and everything in between, including seaweed moustaches at the beach (photos prohibited I’m afraid).
