Sharing Some More Excitement

 By Belinda

We had some great news on Friday. Tippy ((of chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream fame) was accepted into the Secondary Arts Program at Huron Heights Secondary School this fall. The website describes it as: A four-year intensive arts program for artistically talented students in York Region.  

Tippy had to put together a portfolio and audition for a space. There were 48 applicants for about 20 spaces. Brenda was intensely stressed!!! Tippy had a quiet calm. When I talked to her after she heard the news and asked her about the audition, she said with a smile, "I was pleased with my work."

We are so happy for her! And it called for a family celebration with ice cream cake. 

Chocolate peanut butter ice cream cake of course!

I'm only a viewer via blog - but boy - did I ever get excited for Tippy - what a marvelous opportunity! Yes - I know one is not supposed to get jealous - but I am. So glad you celebrated such an accomplishment. Golly - just getting a portfolio together is such a big job! Boy - when I was in school it was a choice between typing, cooking, sewing or woodwork. Glad some things have changed for the better. You might show us some of her work sometime!! Congrats!

Hi Anonymous, I will ask her for some of her current work!God has opened this door--we all see his hand every step of the way in her life journey. It is a wonderful, wonderful opportunity. Tippy has had other struggles, been picked on and left out at school but God blessed her with wonderful teachers at her elementary school (a small country school Sir William Osler, in Bradford) a passion and gift in art.

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.


He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
