Hello everyone, well, I’ve had a weekend an a half! It’s been a most amazing weekend made even better, I suspect, by no computer. I forgot the charger in Vancouver and so went computer free till Sunday night. (Don’t tell Robbie I said this, but computer free is really lovely sometimes.)

For anyone who somehow missed my excitement and preparations? I spent the weekend on Vancouver Island staying with my cousin Jon and his family and visiting with my friends Nick and Joyce Bantock for a Nick Bantock workshop.

It was lovely being with Jon and Lynn and their lovely daughters Nicole and Michelle and I enjoyed every minute.

Thanks so much for your hospitality and friendship guys. I loved catching up with you and am so happy Nicole and Michelle payed piano for me. It was also good to talk about some family matters, and your Molly is so cuddle worthy it’s ridiculous.

(More about Nick and Joyce, the workshop and the outcomes tomorrow.)

PS if you enlarge the top photo, you’ll see a bald eagle sitting on the light in the right top corner.

    You obviously had a great time on the island and no computer for a few days is a good thing!
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Veronica.

    Looks like a wonderful weekend–thanks for sharing its beauty and pleasures with us.

    Wondering: what app or program do you use to create mosaics? I use PicStitch but…

    Looks like an exciting and fun-filled weekend, well worthy of being lived entirely offline. And going to a Nick Bantock workshop makes it even more so!
