It's the weekend, and my husband and I are
both working. I've been painting and he's fielding
calls about a project he's working on. So it was
especially great that it was a beautiful day.

In between working we bought the groceries,
made the supper and tonight were treated to
a movie with friends. A lot of fun. It's
Victoria Day now, and no doubt all day today
we'll here firecrackers going off in honour of the
Queen's birthday. This is pure hell for my dog,
Zoey who is afraid of loud noises, and is terrified
of thunder and firecrackers.

Tonight's drawing is another one I did on the
plane leaving the airport in Toronto. On both
the journey to and from New York there seemed
to be long wait times, when we were waiting to
get in the air, and waiting to get off the plane at
the other end. That gave me some time to dash off
a sketch. Always the good thing about being an

Have a loving-your-neighbourhood-firecrackers day.
