Barbara Muir © 2008I am still working on the larger work that is taking
time, but I miss blogging so much that I've decided
to use the "throw back Thursday" idea and put up
a work from 2008 which is one of my favorites.
Steven and I are a bit like the squirrels tearing apart
my window box planter (already struggling with the
cold) to hide a few choice nuts and seeds. In our
case we headed out last weekend looking
for peaches to freeze (me), and can (him).
We went to a great little market on Keele Street north
of York University on Saturday. The owner farms
35 acres right in the middle of Toronto. There we
were careful -- just two baskets of gorgeous
Was that enough? Oh no. Here we are both working
crazy hard, and we meet a super farmer named Mike
in Vineland, and bring home 6 more quarts! By
tonight, even though the weather is cool, the time
for slow action is over, and I've just spent an hour
cutting and freezing and bagging my peach friends
in immediate need of attention.
Wonder is infinite

Courtney Lee © 2014My dear friend Courtney Lee is part of
No Vacancy Cirque at Village Square in Burlington,
Ontario Canada tomorrow (Friday). The show runs
from 7 - 12 on September 19 only and sounds incredibly
cool. If you're in the area check Courtney's amazing
watercolour and paper abstracts! It will be a peach of a show!
Have a visiting friends' art shows day.
you are very ambitious Barbara with all that kitchen work...but fresh peaches are sooooooo sublime.
Thank you. I do love frozen fresh peaches in February. They lift you out of the snow, into the possibility of summer's return.
We must all be craving fruit ; ) I bought peaches, nectarines, ever-bearing strawberries and Honeycrisp apples at the market today. Yum. We know winter is coming....haha. That art looked super cool! I will have to google her. Take care Barbara!
We wanted to come down your way today, but both of us were working and even though we headed out were stopped by the rain! I am painting oh so slowly. Love your work and Happy B. Day! :-)
