Not Procrastinating

No, definitely not.
I’m just writing because I’m in need of a good dollop of fun right now.
It’s been incredibly busy around here – I’ve got deadlines coming out of my ears. I took a look at my schedule and realized I’m going to actually have to complete quite a few deadlines ahead of time [...]

Our Big Draw Drawing for Today

This afternoon Dylan and I took a good look at this gel pen carousel I bought at Costco a few weeks ago:

Gel pens from Costco

And next thing you know, we were working away together on this picture which we’ve decided would be our Big Draw picture for the day. We worked in a humungous sketch [...]

Saturday Morning Musings

It’s a rainy Saturday morning here, which I rather like – it reminds me of Vancouver, where I grew up. I’m used to misty rainy gray days, where every moment contains a hint of dusk. To me, dusk is such a magical time, when I have a chance to just sit and enjoy it.
Decluttering … [...]

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 [...]

Aberfoyle Junction Pictures; Big Draw; 3 Beautiful Things

Here I go again, cramming everything into one post. I mentioned in my previous post that we went to Aberfoyle Junction on the weekend, and as usual, we took a lot of pictures. Dylan wanted me to post some here, so here they are:

As you can probably see, the detail is simply amazing. I didn’t [...]

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 [...]

More Big Draw: Train tracks, faces

I’ve missed a post this October (messed up my Blogtoberfest as well as the Big Draw …). We had my brother-in-law and his wife over for dinner yesterday, so much of the day was spent cleaning up – having people over is always so nice the day after, because the house is usually still clean! [...]

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 [...]

The Big Draw – Day 15: Airplane!

Mommy was busy working on a couple of deadlines today (it’s when it gets to be “a couple” or “several” that I lose track of the time-space-balance-continuum thing …), but of course, Dylan did his Big Draw drawing. This airplane was done while he and Daddy (lucky Daddy!) went on a picnic today at one [...]

Voting and Election Today, and The Big Draw Catchup

Well, we went and voted today – I always get such a big thrill when it comes to voting, that whole exercise of the right to vote in a democracy thing. It looks like the Conservatives are back in power but at least the results indicate it’s still a minority government, although stronger than the [...]
