A Little News from The Island

Hello my Lovelies.  Hope all is well with each of you today.
Making progress.  Yesterday we took my car in for something or other (ha ha) ... so it's back home with me today.  Nice to have some wheels.  Renting a car these days is incredibly expensive.  Oh -- haven't shown you what I'm driving.  Here it is -- ta da .....

 Very handy for hauling all sorts of 'stuff' and great to transport paintings.

Had a lovely drive through the country side the other day.  The terrain is very beautiful, however I must say, it's going to take me awhile to adjust to the weather.  Drove out to the organic farm with a view to stocking up on veges which would do us for a couple of months.  Of course, had to have a lovely lunch while we were there to warm up!  

When we got home, Ray built a 'cold box' to store the bounty ... so we now have lovely organic produce at our finger tips.  Just like the old days.  I really like it.

 Large baking potatoes, smaller potatoes for boiling and mashing, apples and some lovely carrots.

Leeks, garlic, cabbages, beets and squash.  Yum.

Dinner last night consisted of mashed potatoes, beets, cold slaw of cabbage, carrots and onions with a fine dressing and squash.  Delish.
I'm over at my house this morning, the man from Shaw Cable has just arrived.  Hopefully, I will get internet that works.  So frustrating having to go somewhere every time I want to check on something.  

We shall see how it works this time.  Hopefully check in tomorrow.  In the meantime take care and enjoy the moment.

“Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. stay eager.”
~ Susan Sontag


  1. Love that car, looks great, and when you can schlep so many goodies with it, all the better. I bet you are happy to have such a lot of home veggies again, even beets, I know how you missed them. You will get used to the weather soon, I am sure. Don't overdo things, look after yourself Sweetie, hugs, Valerie

  2. Nature's bounty! I'm with you- needing a vehicle to accommodate all the things I carry from quilts, to groceries, on and on. Always a full load. But it will be a kindness to your paintings when transporting them.
