Day: March 16, 2017


Wow! Mother Nature sure knows how to make us appreciate sunshine and warm temperatures. This afternoon the winds calmed down, the sun shone down and the snow started to disappear . It’s March – crazy, fickle, totally unpredictable March.

We had some company today. My sister, Marg, was on her way to Kemptville and stopped in for lunch. It was a great excuse to make old fashioned macaroni and cheese. With the thickest sauce ever! I think it is all still in one solid ball in my belly. Groan! It was fun to reintroduce her to the jennies. They found our similar voices a little bit disconcerting!

Today I also found time to break out the acrylic paints I’ve been hankering to try. I’ve been shy to dabble with painting until I felt I got my drawing groove back. My best motivation was wanting to create pictures of the Guineas. There are not many mediums that allow you to put white spots on a black background. I had to keep reminding myself that it is the process of drawing with paints that is important … not getting a perfect outcome every time… It was great fun. I think I will enjoy practising with them as a different way to draw.

A splendiferous day in my neck of the woods!
