Digital Painting "On Sandstone"
Well, September has come and gone fast. During the first part we were at the cabin at Pigeon Lake, some of which time we shared with our young people. Our grand-daughter Jenessa ( now almost 17) brought two school friends along. It was refreshing to be exposed to their youth and energy. I called them the three Graces, music, poetry, and art. They ended their long week-end pouring buckets of ice-cold well water over the boys and each other and playing volleyball. Some Graces! The boys were very helpful, making pancakes, chopping wood, and pruning pathways. There were so many different berries: black currant, red currant, snow berries, and rose hips, to name a few. The middle part was busy with visitors, our Shushwap friends came down; the weather was great; we attended Summerland Fall Fair with Barbara and Kaj, Adam and Elise blew in from Vancouver, and at the end of the month our Local Wine Festival is opening, with prizes for the best wines, and cooking competitions. Some friends from Calgary are visiting for that. Friends Vera and Johann from Armstrong will soon be moving into their new abode in Penticton. On a sad note the Oliver senior school burnt down, the students are now in temporary portable class-rooms, and we attended a friend's funeral in Calgary. We will be starting October with a short trip to Vancouver Island, (so there will be a hiatus in the blog). More on that next time!
