The backdrops were changing Group of Seven paintings (a renowned group from the last century who changed the face of Canadian Art) which were enlarged and were very effective. The king and queen of the Birches did a fantastic job of their more classical segments.
Quotes from Dana:
"Hickory dickory dock, hang your sock on the clock.
I've got this covered.....when I tried to explain how to do something on Duncan's e-book.
I need some private time with Nanny.
Nanny is the most exciting person I have ever met. (deprived childhood I guess)
Nanny, you have to stick with the programme.
(that means what she has planned). "
Sunday Dec 15
Above is a photo facing west across the fields behind the house. Sunday church and concert practises were cancelled and it was declared a snow day as the roads were not cleared yet and it was -25. So we are having a PJ day. Shane and Bonnie and Jacklyn slept in, and we later had a lazy puzzle morning.
We finished one of Santa feeding woodland animals then began sorting to start a primitive-painting of an pioneer era village. Dana was honoured with the privilege of inserting the last piece.
Shane had to use his new (free gift) snow blower to clear the driveway and parking area.
Dana showed me how to grow a bar of ivory soap in the microwave. I made Saskatchewan Squid seafood dinner for lunch ( inch size chunks of all beef hot dogs with 4 spaghetti noodles stuffed through the half way to make 8 tentacles).
Shane went to an archery tournament after lunch and we girls showered and changed into clean pajamas to play cards and have an inside interaction day with no techy toys allowed. Uno and Dutch Blitz and Go Fish and jigsaws etc. were undertaken. It was a lovely lazy day... very Canadian...inside avoiding the cold. Jacklyn has set up a nail salon so we are getting multicoloured toes. I hope you had a relaxing day too, but perhaps not fighting the cold. Below is the summer bbq porch and the children's play area/fort.
