Hello from Monday night…since it’s a holiday
So I just had to wrap my head around this bank holiday weekend.
Easter Monday is no longer a statutory holiday in Canada because it’s been traded for “Family Day” a floating late February holiday. Go figure. Consequently, Monday wasn’t a bank holiday. Do you know how I found out? My bank called me on Sunday advising that I go into my branch Monday and change my pin because I used my bank card at some dodgy place where they are suspected of having some sort of spyware to track my pin. Sheesh! Good think I never have very much money in that account…lol.
But, apart form trying to puzzle out the dodgy place of business, I’ve had a wonderful Easter weekend and completely ignored Monday not being a holiday. Took Clove mooching around in shops for an afternoon, did some gardening, had Jon and Chantal over for Easter supper, and generally slept in, breakfasted in bed, had lovely, long morning talks with Robert, (also late into the night talks where Chloe joined in and we sang old Harry Belefonte songs together), lazy few days holiday weekend. Super nice.
Nevermind that I couldn’t get the lawn mower to work, and nevermind that I have a garden show to prepare for, and nevermind that I should have been doing a million other things. It’s been a wonderful, relaxing long weekend. (Except for the one Costco run which couldn’t be put off any longer!)
And, I’ve come to the decision that I think I would like to put some prints of some of the bird up on Etsy. I keep thinking about it and finally thought that a few archival quality prints for $20 might be nicer than one original for $150. Maybe. I hope that maybe everyone might like that. I’m completely at sea here and would love to know what you all think. 😀 Please?
Also, Clove changed the theme on her website, (yet again), but loves this one to bits. I love it too. I think she’s really coming along with her photography and am ever so very proud of her. She’s really getting the views these days! So nice for her. Right now she’s in the dining room drawing a design for the Sasquatch Music Festival. Next up is a design for the Shambhala Music Festival. Last year, she was asked to design a T shirt for Shambhala, and she did, asking for only a T shirt as payment. Her design sold over $2000! She’s so talented and the design was so good everyone wanted one. This year I advised a bit more for the design. You go girl!
Sharing (really late) with Judith and the mosaic bunch.
Veronica, I love this post. It is so full of light and color. Sounds like it was a beautiful weekend.
Hello Maria, and thank you very much. I’m glad you left your addy because now I can come visit you. 😀
Hello V … oh what a wonderful post! Love Chloe’s sunnies. And Morgan .. she is just so beautiful! I had a lazy weekend too (well sort of) – you are allowed you know! Love your pics and I so want to buy one of your prints or the original. What is Etsy?
I’m so glad you had a lovely weekend too Julie. Just popped over to check up on you…lol. Etsy is an on-line sort of store which doesn’t cost very much to run and has million of links to craftspeople (not sure that’s such a good thing actually). And, although there’s a whole lot of controversy about the “handmade” quality of some of the products, I think it still remains one fo the top ways people sell their stuff on-line. (I think, I’m not that experienced with it at all). 😀
Love the photo of your cat with the pink blossoms in the background and of course the birds on the sheet music.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Veronica.
I’m not sure why, but Morgan sure loves those blossoms. 😀
Every weekend should be like this!
Beautiful colors and light in this post. Wasn’t the weekend gorgeous?
brava to C for her design sale w/o seeing it i am sure its worth more than a t-shirt in payment and $20 for a print of one of your bird painting is a steal .. i would pay it in a heart beat had i a place to hang it xo
Thanks for your visit and comment. Just had a look a your latest posts. Beautiful home and gorgeous cat.Easter meal looked good too.
