This weekend brought a visit with old friends...friends that we see more of in Mexico than Canada...a relaxing pedicure (it's been soooo long!) and a picnic at the beach. Does it get any better than this??
The picture above is of Ethan and his friend Darien at the beach. They've been friends since they were born four years ago and were engrossed here in determining just whose fort was the "best". Both parents and grandparents tried to explain that neither were "best", just different...but they were having none of it. They each wanted to hear that their fort was the best!
And finally...something is happening with "the build". The trees come down this week and the heavy machinery will come rumbling in. We're still waiting for approval of our plans from "town hall" but hopefully in the next week or two, construction will begin. Patience Kate, patience.
Check out Beijing artist Li Xiaofeng's wearable art made of Ming, Qing Song, Yan and Qing dynasty pottery shards. His studio has piles of ceramic pieces sitting in bins sorted by date, colour and shape. Amazing!
I have a "thing" for wearable art and found this at Kim's ever sourceful and never failing to inform and inspire site, Something to Say.
I'm leaving you with words that I'm inspired by this week, from singer/songwriter Jewel...
If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear...
...in the end only kindness matters.
Words to live by indeed.
