Zounds, Batman! (And other random exclamations)

Monday, Oct 10

I started this fine new Monday by forgetting something important, right off the bat.  Hope that doesn’t mean the rest of the day will go the same way.  🙂 

On another subject, today is Thanksgiving in Canada.  I think that is so smart–holding this particular holiday earlier.  Ours is much too close to Christmas–one has barely assimilated one turkey dinner with all the trimmings, when it is suddenly time to have another.  The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is hectic, even frenzied, for so many.   

Columbus Day, on the other hand.  I don’t really see the point in that at all, but that’s just one woman’s humble opinion.  I’m working today–and I can’t wait to get started.

Bernice the Yorkie and I went for our usual morning and afternoon walks over the weekend, and encountered nary a moose.  Thank heaven.  You can bet I keep a more watchful eye on our surroundings, though.  Our friend, since dubbed Harold, paid little attention to us, but had he been in the fiesty mood he evidenced later, Bernicie and I might have been pulp.

On Saturday I attended Daris Judd’s encaustics class at Spokane Art Supply–and it was tremendous.  Daris was already one of my favorite artists–I own one of her pieces–but now I’m an even bigger fan than before.  She does the most beautiful work, and shows the patience of an experienced teacher as well.  I came home exhausted, walked Bernice (she stares pitifully at you until you do), nuked my diet dinner (which was delicious, lest you think for one moment that I’m suffering), and pretty much fell into bed.  Later today I’ll scan the pieces I did in class and post them here and on Facebook.  I see more wax painting in my future.  🙂

That’s the news from my kitchen table, folks.

Be well, be kind, be safe.
