The bad news is you're falling through the air,
nothing to hang on to, no parachute.
The good news is - there is no ground

love it !!

I spent a kinda impromptu, fabulous, 2 night stay vacation in the city (Halifax) at my favourite spa retreat, you know the one - ya huh ! I stayed at my happy place. A place where I feel only good things. Amazing & wonderful ! How lucky am I to have such a place. Monday morning I took part in a great licensing & intro to copyright/trademark law workshop especially for artists illustrators & craftspeople put on by CEED & Craft Alliance later on MLou joined fellow workshop mates (& blogging friends) Shelagh & Daina & I - hooray ! - for another delicious lunch at Mezza falafal platter s'il vous plait !


  1. It does indeed sound fabulous Susan. Times to remember and enjoy.
    Happy memories are such fun in the making!

  2. Lady Slippers galore... nice! Tell us more about the Workshop. Tail wags.

  3. Oh, I am going to do that dessert thing, with the cherries on fire!

  4. Lovely Susan.

    I think our provincial flower is the May Flower.

    Wish it was the Lupin instead.
