Making up MONDAY!

Ok...so this is like an apology for NOT having posted these past few days.
We've had BUSY times...and so...let's begin with..."US"...Mr. R and Moi...we had a St.Pati's day Party/ Space Invadors contest on Friday night...SO much fun! (I love my Man!)


We went to "Purple Woods" the land of Maple Syrup...every year a few farms open their woods up to educate the public on the tradition of Maple Syrup up here in Canada. The teperature has to be perfect for the sap(syrup) to be tapped out of the trees...

We got there early and met up with a few freinds and their kids...it's a beautiful walk down through the woods...the Sun had just risen, the horses were just arriving ready to take us for a little ride.
Aren't they gorgeous...and they were planning on doing a 7 hour day! Apparently 2,000 people walk through this wood each day for the 10 days that it's open...I know, CRAZY and poor horses.

We went to the Zoo...
and saw the Orangatangs...this Mama really is NOT a happy camper.
I really do have mixed feelings about the Zoo.
 It's fantastic to be able to see all these animals at such close proximity...but really...they don't live in the best conditions.
I finished a few Watercolours...like this one...
and this one...
and this one...
Oh...and another cat...
They'll all be in my Etsy Shop this week.
Even Little Miss J wanted a go at painting...I love her flying houses and little bird...

So...I hope my apology has been accepted...and I've been forgiven.
As you can see...we've been BUSY.

Tomorrow I have 2 Tell ALL Tuesdays.
Remember to check back.


Off to see what you've all been up to...I have some catching up to do.
HUGS

Looks like you had a grand time. I am the same way with zoos actually.

wow, you are productive to have done so many watercolours like that. Impressive. would you perhaps consider joining my Creative Tuesdays, held every two weeks before a new theme is posted. You can even win a prize and would give you some other blog exposure too. If interested, click on the icon and read the rules there. your wok would be an incredible addition to or co-op. thanks.

Sounds like a great time. I would love to see or experience the tapping of the maple trees. I love maple syrup! Have a good one.
