Yesterday afternoon I had one of my favorite Artist’s Way classes where we make a vision board collage from images we’ve been collecting for a while. Next week most people will have finished theirs and share what they have done.
And, of course, it was Valentine’s Day! I was enjoying the puns on old-fashioned cards.
This one is not so old. I love Mary Englebreit’s art……
On Friday night Alice, Emily, Clara Sofia and I went to a Valentine’s Day party at Stewart’s Caring Place. I didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to be great and the little girls had a wonderful time. They had lovely refreshments of cold chicken, all sorts of cut up vegetables, a huge bowl of mixed fruit and little cupcakes frosted in white with pink and red sprinkles. (Sofia began and ended her meal with a cupcake!) There were two sorts of crafts to do and a photo set up with lots of silly props where we could get our pictures taken. Another room had a hot chocolate bar. I had my first taste of peppermint flavored whipped cream. Not bad. And my daughters were given a great tour of the entire facility which is larger than it looks from the outside. At the beginning of the evening one of the therapy dogs, little Lucy the Sheltie, was there to my granddaughters’ delight.
Nathan and Stephen didn’t come to that party because they had been sick all week. But they were getting better and their Dad, Mike, had a special S’Mores party for them beside the fireplace.
And on Saturday, Andy invited all of us to go see Kung Fu Panda 3. All the kids really enjoyed it, and so did I, even if I thought the first two movies in the trilogy were more interesting. We had an busy weekend, having fun.
