Today is Snoopy's birthday, and to celebrate, the girls and I decided to join in and #drawSnoopy. I was wishing for a big marker or two but had to make do with what we had on hand. Our family are all huge Peanuts fans - at last count, we had over 100 books about Peanuts and Charles Schulz.
Here is Angela and Sophia's artwork. I love their creativity!

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.

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.

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.
