My Husband’s Bright Idea

thanks to Becky B for hosting BrightSquare https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/22/bright-square-22/

Last Saturday my husband surprised me with another date night. We both got dressed up to enjoy a delicious dinner that a local restaurant partially prepared and delivered to our door. Most of the courses are completely prepared and only need to be heated up or finished in the oven and the pasta is measured but needs to be cooked at home. My husband loves to cook so none of this is a chore for him and he loves to plate food. One of the best parts of this meal is that all the proceeds go to charity and this group of young professionals donates the money to St. Joe’s Health Care Centre.

Not only was this a bright idea but it was also the bright spot or highlight of my week. Here are a bunch of square photos that should make up for the days I’ve missed.

Thursday Trios – Happy Easter

an Easter theme for #14 of Thursday Trios

We’re back in lockdown here in Ontario so all family visits are discouraged. I have a bag full of chocolates and eggs for the Easter egg hunt I had planned and I purchased more decorations and some wooden bird houses for a painting activity that I wanted to do with the family. My husband is trying to make me feel better by saying that none of that stuff will go bad so we can do this in May.

The one bit of good news that I got today was that I can get the vaccine on April 11. Yahoo!

Greetings From Tonguely

on St. Patrick’s Day

Normally a wacky bird appears in this time slot but Tonguely just couldn’t help himself and hijacked this page to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Looks like Tonguely got into the green beer a little early today.

Sold!!!!!

….a little joy came into my life yesterday

Out of the blue I received an email from a complete stranger who had seen some of my art on the WAAC website. She fell in love with my piece, Memories of Nowruz, and wondered if I had sold it. When I told her it was still available she was delighted. When we exchanged information I found out that she lives about 15 minutes away from me. We arranged for her to come to the house and from a socially acceptable distance she could get a first hand look at the piece. Luckily for me the image on the website was true to the piece and she bought it on the spot.

We talked for a few minutes while the e-transfer was taking place. Like us she has lived in her home since the 70s and has no plans on moving any time soon. I really enjoyed speaking with her and later when I wrote to thank her she said she’d love to be on my mailing list for future shows. All in all it was a good day. Here is the painting that she bought.
