We had a nice lazy morning today. I stayed in bed until 9:30. Then I got up and had my coffees and breakfast. Mom went to church and the rest of us visited for a bit. It was nice and relaxing. Around 11:30 my oldest daughter and my son FaceTimed me and I had a little visit with them for about a half an hour. It was nice to see their little faces and hear from them. It's so quiet here – it's nice, don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not complaining, it's just different! I'm not used to it!!
I didn't get out of my pj's until after lunch. We had a tasty lunch of nachos with cheese and refried beans etc. It definitely hit the spot! We decided to go to an art show that my dad had some of his wood work for sale in, at around 2:00. The show/sale was filled with beautiful work! It had everything from fabric arts to watercolour to bead work to glass arts and probably anything else you could think of. I really liked a scarf that was for sale and a poncho, but they were awfully expensive!! My dad started talking to one of the artists and asked her if there's anywhere in SalmonArm where I could buy the watercolour paper that I need for the course that starts tomorrow. They sent out a revised list the other day, asking you to buy/bring your own paper (one full sheet (22 x 30") of 140 lb cold press artist quality watercolour paper. Huh…why I'm the world is that highlighted??? And why is my font so tiny? Weird stuff…).
Anyway, (now it's big again – strange!) the lady told us where to go in SalmonArm, but she also said that she thought that she had a sheet of it at her house! So she gave me her number to text her and said to text to remind her and she'd check. I ended up texting her right when we were going to have supper. She did have a sheet of it. So, because I had to go to the orientation this evening, my dad went to her house and bought it from her. Very very nice of her!! She didn't have to go out of her way to be so nice and helpful, but she was. Isn't it nice to know that there are still good people out there!?
I didn't end up buying anything at the art show. Even though there were so many beautiful things! After we got back to the house, mom and I decided to paint our nails (my fingers, her toes…). Dad went for a walk and Marilyn and LT clipped their dog. After painting my nails, I had a little snooze in the reclining lawn chair thingy, while my nails dried! It was nice and peaceful. Then we had BBQ'd lamb that was tasty, with roasted veggies: zucchini, beets, sweet potatoes and regular potatoes! It was a great supper. Thanks momma and Marilyn and dad and all the helpers!! I was being a lazy bum in the chair and supper was made!! That would be a very rare occurrence at home!!
After supper, mom and I drove to Sorrento Centre for the orientation, she decided to join me. There was basic housekeeping information, and they introduced all of the workshop presenters. Karen talked very briefly. She didn't mention the paper, so I guess that I just show up and hope that I have all of the right stuff. I'm starting to fall asleep while I write and I have to be awake earlyish in the morning for the first day of my course! So, I'm going to hit the bed now. I'm super tired and heading to bed now!!
Night All! 💤😴
