I love to create jewelry, using beautiful materials. I can't draw a stickman but I can combine colour, texture, shapes in such a way that it makes for beautiful pieces that can make someone who gets to wear it happy! There are so many things that inspire me to create something new whenever I can find the time.
Family Day, a relatively new holiday. Initially I didn't think much of it, just another day off. But each year we have done a family type of thing and I have to say I actuallu enjoy it. Today we went with John's family to Congee Queen, a Chnese restaurant on Don Mills and Lawrence. Great food, great people and so a great time!!
Every year in the winter, we have deer perusing our backyard (and eating my cedars!). They are amazing to watch. Yesterday we were in the hot tub and one stood watching us for 30 minutes. Maybe she liked my bathing suit :)
How lucky we are to be able to see this while living in a city!
In the midst of this busy life, there are many moments where I am grateful for all of you. Friends and family give life that special feeling and without them life is not meaningful. I am grateful for all of you being part of my life. There are some events that pose some challenges to life right now and knowing I have a support system means so much to me.
Will it be the bid storm they are predicting...? I always wonder whether it is hype or reality. Only one way to find out... Before I drive off to work tomorrow, a peek out the window will do the trick.
