I'm trying to get the hang of this retirement thing, so much to do... Organization is what I'm lacking (I'm procrastinating at this very moment).
We've had a trip to Port Renfrew to see the southwestern part of the island. I'm still recovering. I've come to realize my body is getting older and climbing over rocks to see tide pools is best left to those that have kept in shape or the young. I would go to Sombrio Beach again though just for the abundance of tide rolled rocks! There isn't much in the town of Port Renfrew and as it was before July 1st that we were there, there was not much choice in dining out. But it was a decent place.
We've had some bad news (more on that at a later date) and some good news! We will be grandparents to a new baby in January! I'm particularly excited!!! That will make me a 4time granny!
So... summer time blues... this must mean Cyanotyping. I haven't done that much but I was doing a few experiments yesterday to some success but not to the degree I was hoping for so more experimenting is in order! I have also embarked on making floating frames for the Cyano's that I have on cradleboards... I will possibly post on a new page when they are up for sale.
I just have to either finish this rock picture or start my next commission... probably start the commission.
In other news I've sold two of my drawings this month!! I'm so excited about that as every sale helps. My mom has also taken my cards to Victoria to sell some to her friends. These are my cyanotype original cards. I forgot to get a picture of them. (hmm that's not like me)
Well, coffee is done! Time to get to work!
It's the end of May and I feel like we've already had summer and are moving on to fall, but in reality it's still Spring for another 22 days. The reason I feel this way could be because I've been busy planning our wedding such as it was, a backyard wedding. The weather was glorious and Terry pulled through ordering tables and chairs, this pleased my Mom greatly! We organized pizza catering and we had so much help from Terry's sister and her husband! Honestly, if they weren't here doing all the little things in the kitchen... well, it wouldn't have been a total failure but it wouldn't have run nearly as smoothly. Thank you so much Tammy and Roy!!! We also had some beautiful flowers and arrangements made thanks to my son Brendan and his beautiful wife Carmelina! Thank you both! All of Terry's family made it out regardless of threat of airline strike and all the disruptions on the highways. I only invited my family that lived in the vicinity other then my boys and my Mom, and there were a few friends as well. This was our BIG event this year and we couldn't be happier, it feels a little surreal to me but we are slowly getting back into our routines that are bringing me down to earth.
