Plein Air Adventures

in Georgian Bay

This morning I leave for a one night getaway to Waskesiu Lake. I need to scope out a view for a commission, so I have decided to make an event out of it and take my painting gear, a bottle of wine, a good magazine and my fire pot! I hope to find some inspiration, get a good dose of fresh lake air and rejuvenate. I always forget how busy life gets at the end of the school year and it is also a time when my husband has to travel a bit with work- this year more than usual. I am really tired! A little "me" time might just be what I need to feel energized for that last push through June to get to summer holidays.

As I began planning my little getaway, I got thinking about some of my other "me" times over the last five years. I found a few photos to share with you.

Thanks Barbara. I am sitting on the deck as I type this. It is so quiet and peaceful. I am feeling a lot of gratitude right now. "Me" time is A-OK. :)
