>New experience

>For a while, I’ve been wanting to go to a new café that opened not too far from my parents’ place. It’s Artista Café Céramique. It’s a place where you pick a premade ceramic item and for a small fee, you get to paint it there and they bake it for you! Tonight, mom and I finally decided to go. I picked an ice cream bowl and painted it with vibrant colours. You’ll see the results next week after I pick it up. It was really fun to do and not expensive at all. For 2 ceramic pieces and 2 studio fees it cost under $50! That’s cheap! I definitely want to go again.

Today was a productive day even if it started late and I didn’t go walking. I made a second layout in my aunt’s cats & dogs scrapbook. I might try to do another one tomorrow. We’ll see how I feel.

Have a great weekend!

>Lazy Day

>Today was just that: a lazy day. I went for my morning walk and that’s about the only productive thing I did all day. Didn’t even go for the evening walk. But that’s ok. Sometimes you just need to sit back and relax.

There’s a soapy smell near my computer and I have no idea where it’s coming from. I don’t smell it anywhere else. Weird!

Goodnight! Going to read some more…

>SuperOrdinaryBoy – SuperUpliftingWalk

> This little guy appeared to me this afternoon, after a satisfying bit of cleaning up. I’ve had a few characters popping in my head lately. No no, I’m not schizophrenic. No worries. I didn’t use to draw characters before but I like how they come out now.

I just came back from my evening walk and what a lovely walk it was. I saw quite a few bats flying from tree to tree. Impressive. There was a little cat (gray with white on his/her chest) who was having the best of time chasing bugs by an outdoor lamp. A cute Yorkshire sized me up from his pedestal in a bay window while I walked past his house. Boys playing hide & seek with a cat… at least I hope it was a cat!

I’m satisfied with everything I’ve done today. I started with the worse (complete cleaning of the cat’s litter box, yuck!) and went on from there. My living room still looks like a war zone but what do you expect an artist to do in a small 3-1/2 apartment?

I “sadly” have to finish my last 3 pieces of dark chocolate otherwise they won’t be good. And I am now officially in love with Cranberry Jell-O! Mmmmmmmmm…

Now I’m gonna go read Stardust and decide what I’ll do tomorrow. Have a magical evening!

>A new addition…

>Last week, while preparing a yummy veggie salad, I decided to throw some yellow pepper seeds in a plant pot. Friday morning, I had one little sprout and this is what it looked like when I came back on Sunday evening! I don’t know if they’ll ever grow big enough to actually give me peppers but I’ll sure help them as best I can!

Went for my walk Tuesday morning. It felt good. Forgot to go in the evening. Oops!


Wednesday is all about errands and cleaning and organizing. My living room looks like a glittery war zone again!

I was in a commenting mood tonight. Left quite a few comments on different blogs… it happens once in a while.

Time to go to bed and gain some strength! Goodnight!

>The weekend was lots of fun. Magnificent weather. Great friends. Beautiful things to see and hear. The first picture is of a band called Skarazula, which was very interesting. They made their own instruments and played wonderfully! I could’ve listened for hours, I’m sure.

The second picture is of some dancers in costumes. I didn’t see much of it but what I saw was fun.

The third picture is of one of the Giants that walk through the streets. You can see from the man taking a break next to her how big she is. Just minutes before, the man was inside the Giant, maneuvering to “park” her.

I wish I had seen more of everything but it was very hot and we had other plans for the rest of the day. That’s ok. Now that I know what it is all about, I will definitely go back and will probably invite my parents to come next summer.

I didn’t do my morning walks after all. On Saturday, I knew we would walk quite a few hours (and going up steep stairs and even steeper alleys!) so I took it easy in the morning. In the evening, I unfortunately hurt my right foot and it was way too sore to walk at a steady pace in the morning. I should’ve made up for it this morning by going for a walk. I planned to, even if it rained. But then there was thunder, so close to my neighborhood that I didn’t dare tempt the Gods. I could’ve walked at my parents’ since they have a treadmill but I just simply forgot. Oh well! Tomorrow is a brand new day. And it so happens that tomorrow is my father’s birthday. He’s turning 55. Gonna celebrate with my family!

>Mini Trip…

>I’m off to Quebec City for the weekend. It’s the New France Festival (Fêtes de la Nouvelle-France). Looks like fun. Will probably post pictures when I come back. Have a nice weekend!

>In the Old Port

>Today was a most beautiful day! My morning walk felt really nice even though I didn’t really feel like going in the first place. But I did. The afternoon and evening was spent with my parents. We went walking in the Old Port and in Old Montreal. We looked at 1000 Femmes which is exhibited on one of the quays. Very interesting. We ate at Les 3 Brasseurs in Old Montreal. Yummy! And when we came back home we stopped first for milkshakes and then went for a swim under the stars in the backyard pool. Fun day!
