Yes, I have been gone for a few days - over a week again - I don't know what is up with me lately I just get distracted.
I have continued to do my walk workout and my daughter started me on weights earlier this week. I have lost 7 pounds and about 10 inches. I feel so much better and have so much more energy. I able to go from morning until night now, it is great!
We had some snow on Thursday but it has all been washed away by our rain forest rain. It was very pretty at the time though. The weather was also very cold at the beginning of the week and we are such sissies here in Vancouver -4 freaks us out. LOL
I have bought some white birds, red birds and white butterflies to decorate for Christmas, which I will be doing over the weekend. I made my Christmas wreath for my door the other day with a white boa, red birds, red ribbon, poinsettias and one white bird. It looks very Christmassy!!
So I have been creative after all!

This is my latest mushroom picture:
Still enjoying the watercolours. I came up with my own colours for this one and wonder if it is a bit boring and needed more colour. But it is all practice.
Went to visit my friend today and go for a walk with him. We had word today that he is being moved to a care home close by here, which was his first choice so I hope it turns out to be better than the one he is in. It will certainly be better for me because I will be able to walk there rather than have to take two or three buses.
I working my way up to a twenty minute challenge, I think it will be a very good exercise for me. I will have to get a timer.

During the early Fall, a friend and I went to Stanley Park and wandered around all afternoon. It was a beautiful day and we were fortunate enough to see some swans:

It was dreary and rainy most of the day.

I love mushrooms and bought a book about a year ago so it will come in handy to paint lots of different mushrooms:
