I have a very good friend (I've spoke of him before) Jim*, I called him before ThanksGiving & shared 'I felt I really needed time to myself' before upcoming tests and stuff! - lol
Done. Jim gave me directions to the cottage and my mom & friend Geoff drove me up!
Up to FALL in all it's Canadian glory! Gods paintbrush is busy!
WOW! Perfect timing - only a week in and the leaves started to fall, one day when I looked out the window the leaves were falling and I was listening to classical music - I thanked God for my private concert - as the leaves danced to the music - swirling and twirling!
It is a newcottage - I was the first to occupy as a guest.
It will be for rent BTW and I highly recommend, the view the peace- the deer - a little slice of heaven on earth, IMO.
I do not own a cell phone and was only able to check with my iPad when I visited my friends home (close by) but that was o.k. what a nice break! No e mail - over 400 when I came home- lol , no FB, no phone at all - only a radio and my iPod which died after the first day.
I was forced to listen to canoe FM 100.9 and LOVED it - lol talk about Canadian. The music made me smile - one Canadian song in particular - was Rocks & Trees.. It's TRUE! and makes me laugh. We've go Rocks and trees!
It is all volunteer radio at it's finest. Like hanging out with friends.
What did I do? I got up at 5 every morning to make a fire to get the cabin hot!
I used my friend 'kindling' - later to be asked 'have you seen any of my shims??' lol
Guys will get. Norm did.
Poppy did NOT get out of bed until it was warn and toasty in the cabin.
I ate what I wanted, when I wanted.. - I did this with everything - wow, it was refreshing.
I love my guys but I have come to the realization - I can't do it anymore.
I had enough of a time keeping up just after myself. Changes will be made.
I'm home and I have drawings to finish! I painted - Check out my table I had fun painting, Jim knows me - he said - "paint it if you want!" LOL
IF I want. So, I took my time and sat looking out the window and painted a forrest table. Have peek...
Today a drawing to be finished - inspired by Kalli Hyde and one inspired by Todd Stimson.
Of corse it is the anniversary of my surgery soon- more important it is the anniversary of the death of Cashy Hyde- who died the day after.
I had a wonderful time - with God, my friends, deer, dogs, leaves & Sasquatch - hee hee hee
Tomorrow a new toon! Thank you for staying tooned!
Go have a listen to Canoe ;)
Get a Canadian feel- really. it brought me right back to being a kid sometimes.
Below a few photos of our adventure.
Have creative day!
