I am grateful for the car sharing co-op I just used for the second time today. I don’t need it often, but it works well and is nice to have access to it when I do.
I am grateful for a good mechanic, and a new alternator in our van.
I am grateful for all the artists I am showing with at the Mosaic art show I am in at Goward House, here in Victoria, We installed the show today, all 59 pieces, from 6 diverse artists. I think it looks great, if I do say so myself. If you are reading this, you are invited to the opening reception, this Sunday from 1:30 to 3:30. More info here. It’d be great to see you!
I am grateful for time spent with my family this evening. We watched Ponyo. I am also grateful for that film and every other one I’ve seen from Studio Ghibli.
I am grateful for time spent visiting with family.
I am grateful for Coop, who rose to the occasion to fulfill a requirement for his Cub Scout building badge, and to help his Nana and Pop by installing a bracket for the vacuum cleaner they received from my brother and sister in law for Christmas.
I am grateful for the East Van Panto, which was the impetus for our Vancouver visit. It never disappoints.
I am grateful for dinner for 8 at Chongqing, on Commercial at 12th, which I think is some of the best Chinese food anywhere.
I am grateful for a safe journey and arrival home.
I am grateful for a whole heckuva lot of time at the studio today.
I am grateful for time spent with my lads tonight. We went out for pizza, then squared away some costume issues. Coop whittled away at a sword he’s carving from a piece of scrap lumber. With his martial arts get up and some cleverly googled use of a white T-shirt, we created Farl a fine ninja costume.
I am grateful to watch those kids grow up, and do all the stuff they do. Coop’s getting into theatre, and he’s going after Cub badges, and he’s reading like a fiend. Farl is always finding new ways to entertain himself with lego, and if he finds a new art supply around, like some canvas panels I threw in the art cart a few weeks ago, that kid will take it upon himself to set up and paint like there’s no tomorrow. I can so get behind that!
