Last year on this day, I called thinking about this painting
Dream Time.  Today one of our family dreams is coming 
true with relatives coming for dinner, rapid tested all way
from California.  

And a after that this is the next dream -- going to our 
school house.  Here's what I said about it last year on this 

"I get the recharging of fresh air, a slow pace, and exquisitely beautiful

scenery on our annual trip to our school house in Nova Scotia.
The entire journey is wonderful, and of course there are landmarks
all along the way.  This is one of them -- the house on the hill that
means we're almost at Pugwash, and almost at our home in
Nova Scotia.  I have painted this house so many times, and never
met the people who own it.  Maybe some day.

Have a loving your life day."

Hi Evelyn,

Not sure when we're going. I'm teaching now, and
there are a lot of issues in Nova Scotia right now
because of weather challenges. But yes it will be
wonderful to go there.
