Welcomed home -- our lovely friends in Nova Scotia

My dear friend down the road opens our school house
for us and cleans it up.  It always has some exciting
animal visitors, and this past winter was no exception.
What is wonderful, aside from arriving late at night
after a 1,165 (1875 kilometers) mile road trip to find the place
clean, is the sweet touches my friend leaves -- little bouquets
of flowers from her garden, and on the back deck,
a beautiful planter.  So sweet.

I had to sit right down last night and draw this
little bouquet.

Have an appreciating your super friends day.

How nice! It sounds like you have a great neighbour there.
I'll bet you're glad to be back and visiting your ocean beach too.
I'll call you tomorrow...I was in the garden painting and missed your call and then we went out to a dinner party. I'd love to see you. xoxo Welcome home!

Hi Flora,

We have been having an amazing time. Yes -- the people and the beach -- singing to the radio, so fun!
