|Like my moose Cowichan? I do.|
I snuck up on this Tusken Raider for a photo op. He was mumbling something. I'm guessing he was like, "hey lady, you are WAY to close," and I was like, "yeah? too bad man, you are making it on to my blog whether you like it or not!"

Then LOOK - it's Carole Epp. If you aren't from around here, you might not know who she is. Carol is with SK Craft Council and hosts Flock & Gather (blog here). Promise me if you click the link that you'll look around for a while. There is SO much to see! It's a very dynamic craft collective that holds show & sales with local artisans. I did not know her boy was a super hero too! : )
My husband got these made gluten free just for me (and I don't even like cake)! Still, I ate about seven of them. lol

We headed downtown to The Mix art studio off Spadina Avenue to see a show put on my Nicki Ault (paintings) and her father Bob Racine (wood). I bought this GORGEOUS wine bottle stopper that he made.
Nicki was BUSY. My kids got stir-crazy and we had to cut out early. They kept playing 'chase' in the gallery after someone fed them cups of super sugary lemonade on an empty stomach. sigh. On the way to vehicle, I spotted this rock and told them to climb it. We were there in the front yard of a highrise for a half hour. lol
|PULL! Come on boys!|
You think I have lots of energy? You should see my daughter. o m g. Never a dull moment.

My husband surprised me with new patio furniture and then mother nature surprised us with three days of pouring rain. THAT was another exciting part to my day. My birthday always gets a good thunderstorm for as long as I can recall. Sure enough, Saturday saw the first thunderstorm of the year! I am crazy-in-love with prairie thunder storms : ). We turned on a multicutural radio program and danced up a storm inside to all the Cinco de Mayo celebration songs. Fun fun! It was a very good day. Here's to a new year!
