Happy Sunday...

(Yikes...time for Photoshop or some eyecream! :)


Hello you! :) I can't believe it's been almost two weeks since I've posted here. Many times I've sat down to write something...only to have my words vanish into thin air. I've been reading your blogs...and having a hard time expressing what I've wanted to say. This is a very busy time for me. I have really dove head first into my yoga teacher training program. It has literally been gobbling up almost every spare minute of my time with practising...and studying. But I love it, really love it. Learning the philosophy...physiology...and the hardest thing of all for me...to slow down and listen.

Today I promised myself I would make time for some painting...so of course, I whipped out my camera, and started fiddling around...:) I am the Queen of Procrastination...Jon bought me some awesome 30x36" canvases a couple of weeks ago,so I've been painting...BIG!

(My sweet Coots wondering when I'm going to get back to work.)


We also had our first 'real' snowfall today. Jon and I took the dogs for a long walk this afternoon. It was so still and beautiful...I absolutely love being outside in the snow when it's not too cold...

(View from my studio window...)


Today is definately the day for a big pot of veggie chili and homemade cornbread...I heart Sundays. I hope wherever you are, you are having a fantastic day...

Celeste,

I love that painting you are doing. I will have to commission a big painting for our bedroom when we get home in the Spring.

Look at those big beautiful green green eyes. xo

You've got snow already!?!? Well, I guess it is mid November...but it's still Autumn...right?
I am sort of dreading and eagerly anticipating snow here in Victoria. I love to stomp around in it, and take lots of pictures in it, but I hate hate hate driving in it. Did I mention I live at the top of the ridge in Cordova Bay? When it snows, I am stranded!

So glad life is full of heart for you, dear Celeste.

Much love
xoxo

Ohhh, you have such gorgeous green eyes!
I love the pics of your home and your doggy. All so cozy & comfy looking.
We woke up here to the first snow of the season this morning. It's beautiful and always feels nice.
By tomorrow, I'll be tired of it. Not looking forward to our Canadian winter.
*hugs
gorgeous painting too!
