Home Again, Home Again...

It looked like this in La Conception last Tuesday when Kate and I went for a little walk.

Not ideal for a photo shoot with the snow falling directly towards us...

Or weird camera settings by the Auntie,

But I have to say, I was happy when I saw this one later !

Happy Queen ! Looking like an Es-Kim-O, like my parents used to call me when I was a little kid. ;)

I got home last night after a week away up North. Spent time with both Sisters and brothers-in-law, all the nieces and nephews, the Mommy, old and constant dear friend Suzy and new and wonderful Montreal/blogland friend, Kim (The Bodhi Chicklet). It was a nice trip, in spite of the frigid, I mean frigid Montreal weather. Don't miss that but I do miss the warmth of the sweet, big hearts of my peeps up there.

Some busy stuff here for the beginning of the week...art work to be completed, scanned and sent off for possible publication (shhhh...it's a secret until it is decided...), a Queenly photo shoot to be the subject of an illustration class assignment by my artist friend Nick, art to be made for a DIY Post Card Swap for IHanna, not to mention Meditation Monday and YogaDance Tuesday... oh yeah, AND catching up with Blogpals and visiting One World One Heart participants...

Phew... Life is busy but good. Just trying to keep the focus on the living and being present and not just the do, do, doing...

Off to shower and then spend some quality time with my sweet Man who I missed a lot...

Happy Sunday, Beautiful Ones...go be HOMe for awhile...
