Every day in May: 26


Our rhododendron is in bloom and dropping these lavender blossoms like they're going out of style. It prompted a discussion with my girls as to how the fairies would wear them. You see the result.

Every day in May, Day 25 completed


As noted previously, I spent a lot of time last week trying not to move too much while I recovered. I found myself turning not to new books to read, but returning instead to the old comfortable ones.

I reread most of the Anne of Green Gables series - Anne of the Island, Anne of Ingleside, Anne of Windy Poplars, Anne's House of Dreams, and Rainbow Valley. I'll do Rilla of Ingleside again next and then finish up with Anne of Avonlea completely out of order to cheer myself up. You can't go wrong with Anne Shirley.

Every day in May: 25

I hear you cry, it's June, silly! But on Memorial Day I stupidly and spectacularly strained my back lifting something I had no business lifting, and wound up unable to do many things I really wanted to do, for about a week. Including painting (which no lie, had me crying).

I'm getting back into it and won't stop until I've done all 31 days of paintings.

Maybe I won't stop then either.

Every day in May: 23


I know it's silly but it sure was fun to paint.

Every day in May: 22


One of those days.

Every day in May: 21

Pansies are such cheerful little flowers. They remind me of faces, or lions, or laughing dogs. They always bring a smile to my face. And they're fun to paint!
