The last few days in gorgeous Nova Scotia

I found this photo of a painting I did ten years ago that
says it all.  Ken and Maxine Lander grow, and develop beautiful
 flowers for Proven Winners which are featured in Martha Stewart
Magazine.  Their beautiful varieties of petunias are sold everywhere
from here in Pugwash to Toronto and the states.

Tonight we went to a wonderful dinner in the Lobster Factory.
The building is a community hall in Pugwash, and tonight
there was a special Italian themed dinner.  We went with Norene
and Greg Smiley, and met Louise Cloutier and Richard Dittami there. 

It was an amazing dinner, so delicious.  And we sat outside
watching herons and eagles flying over Pugwash Harbour. Magical.

Nova Scotia is beautiful, and our overwhelming emotion here
is straight up joy. This painting says that for me.  I hope you get
to be somewhere that makes you feel that way soon, if you aren't
there already.

Have a loving where you are day.
