Staying in Love with Life

Well, that’s rather an odd title, and I didn’t know I was going to write it until it popped out. Seriously, I was just sitting here thinking that I should work a bit more on my Art Every Day Month project and of course, I’m in NaPoBloMo so I need to write a post today. [...]

Mommy & Daddy Kissing

I know … kind of a sappy title, but that’s what Dylan drew! Our little guy was sick today, but with a bit of Vicks Vaporub (which really has worked to ease his cough) he’s fast asleep now and probably already thinking about the “parade” that he’s decided he wants to play tomorrow.
One of the [...]

Dylan Draws People

Dylan’s been missing The Big Draw – he loved seeing his work up on “the website”, as he calls it. So I’ve decided to give him his own category here. Afterall, he does have quite a passionate fan club!
Dylan’s Day Yesterday
Yesterday, Dylan had a busy day. I had to stay home, of course, [...]

Halloween Pics

I finally snagged the Halloween pictures from Ward’s camera – not that we had very many! This Halloween told the tale of a little boy reluctant to actually wear his costume. We pleaded and we begged, and he finally consented to wear his cape and witch’s hat. Here he is, sans wand and not looking [...]

Today’s Happenings; The Big Draw

I’ve been sitting here thinking about how blessed life can be. Always a wonderful feeling with which to end the day.
Tonight I finally got around to doing something I’ve been procrastinating for a while – and it’s left me wondering, why on earth was I procrastinating?
We buy a lot of cookbooks around here. My husband [...]

Creative Kids

We spent the day at Aberfoyle Junction; it’s a model railroad place out in Guelph that’s really amazing. Filling 1500 square feet of space, the layout represents trains and tracks running in Southern Ontario in the 1950s. Every half hour or so, the lights dim and it becomes “night”, and that in itself is such [...]

The Big Draw, Day 16; Parent-Teacher Meetings

Interesting how lately I’ve just been sticking everything into one post! Today was a bit better timewise, although I was at the high school all afternoon for parent-teacher meetings. The place was very busy; the daytime meetings used to be so much better than the nighttime meetings but that’s definitely changed.
It was a nice [...]

Happy Thanksgiving! and Absolute Grace

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Canada! We have had two days of festivities – we went to my sister’s house for a family Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and today we had a small feast of our own.
Which unfortunately left me very little time for other things, like drawing! So The Big Draw will be on [...]

3BT: Relationships

Three beautiful things today:
1. After dinner conversation with my oldest son, loving so much who he is, how he’s growing and thinking, the person he’s becoming.
2. A gourmet meal on a Monday night, lovingly prepared by my darling husband.
3. Laughing and joking with my daughter, adoring who she is.

Lunch at the Mandarin

After a morning at the computer for both of us, Dylan and I decided to have lunch at the Mandarin. As we were leaving, Dylan saw his travel markers and clipboard by the front door, and he decided he wanted to take them with us so he could draw. Usually he’s fine without anything at [...]
