Sleepy Sunday

Sunday has become one of my favorite days of the
week.  One of seven favorite days -- Ha!  Gotcha.
No...I don't think of the days of the week as good,
better, best.  But Sunday for the most part is a day to
rest, relax and enjoy life together, and to get ready
for the week.  I've got to admit that I love it.
Ready for joy

(My entry in the Ayrspace show,
and also in the International Women
Celebrate book)

This beautiful invitation to the Ayrspace International
Women Celebrate show (above) arrived and it is the
perfect treat. Jeanette Vermeyden-Obbink designed it, and she's
done a lovely job.  I hope you'll put the Ayr on your
schedule for March, and head over to the show.

Yesterday in the flower store I met Drew Scott
from The Property Brothers show, then watched
his show on the W network last night.  Drew is
a charming and engaging fellow, and he was
buying a huge bouquet of exotic flowers for
Marilyn Denis, which he was giving to her on
the program. Annie, one of our friends at
Yang Flowers on Avenue Road did a wonderful
job arranging them.  Drew is going to be on the Marilyn
Denis show on CTV Monday morning  at 10 a.m.,
and you can watch it online. 

Have a loving-your-downtime day

Hi Róisín,

Thanks so much. You are very kind. I am amazed at how wonderful your work is, and how many paintings you've created in such a short time. Love the apple studies too.
