A good weekend!

March 24, 2014

I had a mixed and beautiful weekend. Nothing much planned except much of the usual, like shopping, household chores and a coffee somewhere nice. I had some plants to put into pots, also planned a painting workshop at the Open Hand Centre. If time allowed it was important that I continued preparations for the exhibition next week and make some sketches for the book cover. I did want to make another design for the wood cutting weekend during April.

In my heart I hoped for some magic or some inspiration from the workshop for the book cover illustration.

I was able to complete most of the tasks and fairly content with the results; not sure whether there was any magic; it is a work in progress so I didn’t expect to see perfection  yet; if at all.  I am pleased with things so far and look forward to  drawing on my new skills during the week.

As a bonus news from the Brazilian family is good they are both recovering well and  were able to return the their home for an overnight stay.  It has been two month since they left home on that fateful day and returning albeit carefully on crutches very slowly was a wonderful achievement.  My daughter was able to cook a meal and be reunited with the cat (adopted stray)  who has kept a day and night vigil in their absence.

So I have much to be grateful for … and give thanks!
