Not sure why lovely ripe tomatoes on a baking hot day came to mind today when I sat down to do a doodle on my last free afternoon before xmas holiday, but there you go. Perhaps in places like Australia, tomatoes are getting very nice around now? I made it a bit Christmassy with the message!I am enjoying a cup of tea (ofcourse) and some remarkable baked things from a friend! My mind is being blown with every bite- nanaimo bars, sugar snowflakes, lacey oatmeal pistachio cookies and butter tarts! This lady is a magician in the kitchen!! Thank-you to her!
I wish all of you a calm, warm holiday with lots of peace and harmony! I am wishing for no fights, yummy food, warm quiet days and family all around. I don't know if it is getting older but I am regularly so so very grateful to live in a peaceful country where I don't have to fear for my life, as so many in this world do. I will pray for those people this year and hope for some comfort for them. Sometimes I stop and notice how lucky we are to be able to wander down the street, grab a coffee, chat with friends at the school yard and live without fear here. Thank-you Canada!
Finch is exited for school to be over. We want to go up to an intersection we discovered where the freight trains go by right at street level with a new to us, railroad crossing that goes DING DING DING. What a thrill! It looks almost like this drawing he is doing. Maybe we will try on Monday morning. You just never know if one will come, so wish us luck!
