this weekend I didn't get much done outside, we had rain yesterday which we really needed badly. There have been reported grass fires and a house burned down in a small town not far away so it was time we got some. Forecast for tomorrow....snow to the north of us, they can keep it.
So I did get a couple things done with a swap I am in in May, I got a couple canvas backgrounds painted and ready for some of my sketched faces. I completed 2 sketches in the evenings which I am just thrilled about...
And today I called my dad, he suffers from Dementia and is in a long term care facility on the west coast of Canada. It is always hard to talk to dad, he doesn't answer appropriately and sometimes he doesn't answer at all but I had a need to talk to him just the same, to hear his voice and tell him I love him. He always tells me he loves me too and then the conversation ends. I am happy to hear his voice but sad that distance and his illness prevents us from having a normal conversation about family, weather, what we have been up to etc. Dad will be 83 this year and I would like to plan a visit perhaps this fall.
Just sharing with you all a little moment of my life, I know that these things happen and it is a part of life that I have no control over.
Remember to tell those close to you that you love them....even if you have difference with them.
You never know what tomorrow will bring...never have regrets.
