A perfect day in the City

After making a bag for my friend I couldn't resist making one for myself, so Wednesday evening I worked on this bag to take with me to Granville island. There is so much paint mushed on this bag that it feels like leather, I really enjoyed filling it with goodies from the public market. My favorite hard to find perfume Filigree by Thyme, a purple, and yellow tube of paint, a new wood stamp, and a new paint brush recommended by the vendor.Four soaps, patchouli, and sandalwood. Okay doin my happy dance now!!We met up with our friend on her sail boat, snapped a few photos,
had a quick glass of wine and boogied on!
I was chicken to get in the boat
with my bad knee! Years ago I would have been the first one in!
Then a delicious dinner with Martinis at the Back Stage lounge,
over looking the promenade!
Huge portions too!

View from our table!

A quaint little play , written, produced and acted, by a collective of working actors was our next plan of action. We sat through an emotion packed hour full of substance! I was left wanting more! Such a talented group! The extreme heat we're experiencing left us all melting by the end of the hour! Hmm....hope we're not witches,
although there are days I suspect we are!
Tomahawk Restaurant

Upstairs of the little theatre we discovered a joyful collection of art by
self taught artist Laura Zerebeski
who paints abstract pictures of landmarks in the city!
Really accurate abstracts too! I'm drawn to her unique style!

This Tomahawk restaurant is one I frequented almost every weekend
when I was first married! It would be lined up down the road,
for a Yukon, the best hangover breakfast in town!
I haven't been there in years, I have to cross two bridges now to get there. Plus a hangover is out of my realm these days, so is bacon!

The photo of this 3-D art done with puzzle pieces, doesn't do it justice. It was spectacular.Not sure the artist, though I suspect countless hours and pieces went into these phenomenal sculptures!

I was home long enough to throw down my bag when
the kids arrived through the door right behind me!
Bryan's mom came into my very messy house for a quick tea.

She brought me the most beautiful birthday card and a fifty dollar gift card for Micheals.....
holy generous...... I was shocked and thrilled all at once!!
She has ten kids.....
Thank-you for abundance!!!
The end of a perfect day!!
