Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We celebrated a bunch of family birthdays on Saturday – my grandson Sam’s, son Ryan, stepdad Ron and nephew Adam. We had so much fun!
As you know I’m working on a Day planner/Calendar started by Suzi Blu on Facebook. Suzi gives us prompts to focus on every week. One of them the past week was “savour”. Since i receive much joy while watching the birds in the backyard I thought I would honour some of them by drawing them. I don’t usually draw birds and don’t feel comfortable doing so but i think these little guys turned out not too badly. Later I journaled around them.
Yesterday was a very dreary drizzly day and i was feeling kind of blue. So I asked Mr. G to come out to the park for a little walk. He grumbled, didn’t want to but finally obliged me. I’m so happy he did. I got to hug my favourite tree AND bonus………some magical little fairy people left painted rocks nearby for lucky recipients to find! I don’t know if you can see but there are several near my tree above, by my feet and in the hollow of the tree.
Here’s a couple in the hollow. I was sooo excited. Mr. G thought i was funny! I said to him “See! I knew there was a reason we should go out for a walk!”
There must have been at least a dozen rocks in various places but i only took two good size ones. One with a painted tree and one with a sunset. There were lots of painted bunny rocks which i’m guessing were created by a little girl. These ones were a bit more sophisticated. How lucky am i eh? Thank you Emily!

As we exited the park I noticed a Mom and a little girl wearing a long skirt (i’m guessing a fairy skirt). I pointed to them and told Mr. G that they were probably on a mission to spread joy in the park. I noticed they were carrying a bag with them which probably carried rocks. What a wonderful thing to do with your child – to teach them that magic exists in the world and we can also spread magic and glitter wherever we go!
Love, Violette xo
