Yes, I am still alive !
Thanks for your all your sweet emails showing concern about the fact that I have not posted on my blog for almost 2 weeks. 2 WEEKS !!! Where has the time gone? This is crazy ! Last week we really got snowed over, one more time. I had to drive to Montreal for a day , the storm started in the afternoon and the weather got too bad for driving back I got stucked there for a few days. Burried streets, slippery roads, gusty winds, you get the drift. So I spent fun time with friends and did tons of little things I never find the time to do when I visit the town for a quickie. You see, I am a big-city girl, born and bred in Montreal, so once in an urban surrounding, it all comes back to me pretty fast and I slip back in my I-love-subway-bus-bike-walks-shops-restos-museums-cafes old self in a jiffy. Finally came back home to find my computer's modem had died (yes, once again) due to a power surge that happened due to the strong wind. And, to top the sundae with a big cherry, I had forgotten my camera was still plugged to my computer so the camera died too !!! Fun, fun, fun ! It never stops ! So ... No computer, no camera and spring break going on this week made it the perfect mixture to take a break from the regular life ... Since Ulysse was at his cousin Charlie's house for a few days, I have been on a C-O-M-P-L-E-T-E break, even better than a vacation down south. I stayed home most of the time, no shopping, no running around, waking up and going to bed at the time I felt like, watching a few movies and reading a few books I had put aside for later, redoing a part of my studio, sowing hot peppers and eggplants and dahlias in trays, sorting old photos and boxes of knick-knacks... Not much work was done on my paintings although I have a nice little group almost done. But I have filled an entire sketch-book with doodles of all kinds ready to come alive on canvas. I received a new modem yesterday afternoon and operated on my laptop's belly right away. And it works! Got a new camera too, very easy to use and similar to my old one. And Ulysse is coming back home tonite. So I guess it is now time to put myself in the right gear, shake out some of the laziness still left and return to real life ... Hey! I can live with that! I love my real life! And like any other vacation I have taken, towards the end it was time to get back to reality! Thanks for all your sweet comments left on my blog! I will try to get up to date reading everyone's blog and answering my mail this weekend. I will also add quite a few new paintings in my Etsy shop and on eBay next. I have missed you all! Life without blogging is not as much fun! HAVE A HAPPY SPRINGY WEEKEND! Love and hugs ... LuLu xxxxx
