Rainy day..unusual here, but so peaceful..you don’t feel the pressure to be out there, gardening, whatever. Here Finn is sleepy after his nap (that’s how it sometimes go) and is watching T.V. Sol, also male, is hanging out with the guys. Frank is reading. They are all so self absorbed. Men.

Frank was looking for something physical to do…a project, a long walk..and Tish suggested doing a make over of Caleigh and Maya’s room, which was crowded with a double bed bunk bed system, in order to leave the garden doors free…but…
decorators prevailed, Frank, Tish and I did the job, and upon Caleigh’s return…
there was our reward… the smile! This is wonderful for a girl about to be 13…to have her own half of the room. Always puts me back to when Jen and Drea shared a room. The circle of life continues to be circular!
We had a blast on crazy bike rentals…a little tight, but it still gave us a peddling workout…
Keiran hopped off to get this photo of his Opa, but otherwise he was doing wheelies with him! really.
and then it was time to say good bye to the beach house, back to the land of school nights…Lovely lovely time we all had.
aside: nice look to that date…11/20/2012
I digress. Here’s a photo of all the plants Richard brought over for us to care for as he’s doing the family rounds in Ontario for many weeks. You have to love a man who loves to propagate blooming Hawaiian trees, from seeds, in his home off the blustery coast of N.S.. He also has geraniums year round indoors, and saves his poinsettia from year to year. Of course, there is as well the tree he brought as a cutting from Rhodesia…He’s very generous. We too now have “imported trees”..My studio is always a flexible space, from guest bedroom to sewing studio to art studio to greenhouse…like we all should be!
