Back once again, (like a renegade master)
Well then. Every time I say the words, “back once again”, those lyrics pop up in my head. I can’t help it. 😀
Back once again in Vancouver, back once again trying to get over jet lag in the fastest possible way, back once again in my studio.
Robbie and I opened the door to the studio and saw the stairs completely covered with stuff! Not only that, but the whole studio space looked like a war zone. Poor Clover with her broken ankle couldn’t really negotiate the stairs and carry things at the same time.
So, a massive clean up happened (note art table before photo above and after photo below.)
And now my art table is ready for me to complete some paintings, and my work desk is ready for me to mail art away…
And the writing desk is ready for R to set up his work there.
While R and I were in England, Kerstie came for a visit with our three little girls, and that meant that the toys were out of the trunks and basically the whole children’s area looked like a five, three and one year old were there.
C took a good hour putting the toys back into the trunks and organising the space.
A bit of around the house spruce up happened as well. I took out the Kalenchoes on either side of the sink and replaced them with these beautiful, feathery Maidenhair ferns.
Outside…OH MY GOODNESS! So much to clean up, harvest, trim and replant. I’m not even sure where to start with the garden photos, so for now I’ll show you my little hot pepper harvest, (minus about four which C and Bryson picked and ate and made some humorous videos for us running for the glass of water.)
Oh, and mom’s nurses gave her this large planted basket, and, while she enjoyed it all summer, now it’s time to do something about all these tropicals, and so she gave it to me to sort out. I think I identified about a dozen lovely plants in it and am looking forward to expanding my house plant collection (all the time sticking to my “I’m not a houseplant person” dogma.)
Things are slowly settling down to city life round here. 😀
