Art does not come easily to me and I find as I get older it's even more difficult. I am prone to perfectionist ways and painting fills me with such an overwhelming sense of dread & anxiety that I do not know why I agree to these evenings -lol- However, I signed up for one of these Paint Nites with Juli. We drank, we painted, I fussed and generally came home unhappy with my project but happy to have had the experience.
Being originally from the States, some holidays I get to double up on. Independence & Thanksgiving are the 2 big ones. I usually host American Thanksgiving here in our home, calling it Friendsgiving. I invite over some friends, either a mishmash group or like this year, Chrissy & Co. We had a lovely dinner; roast turkey, homemade cranberry sauce, cherry soup, fresh bread with butter, beans & crispy bacon, and mashed potatoes with gravy. Our places at the table were adorned with little name tags written by Kev. After dinner, Jeff took Q home, we left LilC' & Loosh in the care of Kev while us gals headed out to the local bowling alley for our first step into hanging with the Doctor Who Society.
I love Christmas and secretly wish I was one of those people who had the time & patience to go all out in decorating. I recently discovered we have a store here in Ottawa that is Christmas year round & went out for an afternoon with my darling friend Kara for ornaments, cupcakes and tea.
