September 8th 2009

I had a great holiday yesterday. We went out to the island and sat on blankets on the beach to watch the air show. I've been hearing so many complaints, (way more than in previous years), about the air show and the noise it makes, but I actually really enjoy it. I think it's exciting to look up and see them flying over.

Now it's back to work for me.

I did another drawing today for the "What I Wore Today" Flickr pool, and you can find it here. It's nice to do a drawing a day, (or every couple, when I get the chance to make one for this group).

I've been making an effort to draw every day. I've also been making time to go out and take photos, knit, sew, and do things with my hands. I like doing a little bit of everything most days.

Oh, by the way, the photo at the top of this post is of sweet, tiny macarons from Nadége. (It's actually sort of hilarious; I just looked up this website to link it to my blog and it's got a funny, (and dirty), flash animation as you enter). Anyway, it's a new patisserie that opened up on the south east corner of Trinity Bellwoods Park this summer, and they have some lovely, tasty things. The two flavours I picked up were rose (pink) and olive oil (green). If you're in the city and love sweets, I recommend checking it out.


  1. i thought those macaroons were meringues!

  2. They are - the French ones are called Macarons, the North American ones are called Macaroons, and are made out of coconut. The French ones are little sandwiches with ganache in the middle... sort of like IMPERIAL COOKIES!
