today is edgar's birthday. he's 7. and this is him being annoyed as i woke him up to give him birthday hugs. and adding insult to injury, taking a flash photo of the moment. poor boy. but i think we made up for it. first with a lovely walk at 11 o'clock with wonderful tracy. tracy set her alarm as a reminder. brilliant. i'd wanted to walk edgar at 11. but would never have known when it actually reached 11. thankfully tracy and i were together at the studio preparing for our open studio (more on that later).
we took edgar and walked along the lake and up around the stone buildings. and we marveled at the ducks. and enjoyed the crisp november air. edgar's birthday this year is 11.11.11 and my birthday last year was 10.10.10. i love stuff like that. tom tried to buy him a special birthday cake bone.....but we had to make do with a happy holidays one instead. he loves it.
so, now we are having pizza, curled on the sofa with the birthday boy, watching '(500)days of summer', trying to rest up for the weekend. we are opening the studio for the weekend. tomorrow, saturday the 12th we are open from 10 until 4. come by if you're in the area. 55 mowat avenue, in lovely portsmouth village. and then sunday from noon until 5. i just found out i'm scheduled at the book store until 2.3o on sunday, so i'm hoping trisha is free to cover the first half....otherwise....well, i'll let you know.
it's been a good day!
