Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving is coming up this weekend here in Canada.

I'll be hosting again this year as my daughter is too busy with work and family life; mainly these two cherubs. 

It will be the usual fare ... turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans ... apple and pumpkin pie later.

What's your favourite Thanksgiving dish?

Seven Months

Hello all! I've been working on a little project lately ... actually it started way back in February:

Seven months dye free. YAY me!!!!!

Sunscreen Slime

When I turned 60 in March, I resolved to take better care of my myself.

My skin had been (somewhat) neglected, my diet needed tweaking and my activity level wasn't that great; long walks mostly for Ben's benefit was the extent of it.

Since then, there have been many changes for the better. I've shed a few pounds, I'm walking more and a new skin care regimen is showing very favourable results (YAY)!

BUT ... I've yet to get my hands on a good, non-greasy, sunscreen.

It's the shine; I can't stand it.

And as the reject pile grows, my patience (and wallet) wears increasingly thin.

If you know of one, please share.

I'll be eternally grateful.

*the original quote says 'person' I changed it to 'being'.

My best friend is showing signs of hearing loss and I am so, so sad for him; kind of in mourning and can't seem to shake it.

Ben In The Garden

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary."

- Picasso

I'm currently working on this piece of Ben in the garden; can't seem to get the light just right. When manage I that, I'll start on Ben, who is just a blue outline for now.
