The Last Picture Show

… but only for the season. Tonight was the last of our QFA films until the fall. It was a members only showing of the Canadian film, “Breakfast With Scot”. We thoroughly enjoyed the movie which was thoughtful, funny, uplifting and definitely Canadian… a great way to end the season. Everyone also enjoyed the catered foods which were available before and after the film.

Home Again

We spent the weekend with friends in the Caledon Hills. It is lovely at this time of year… everything is still that fresh spring green. On Saturday we went to the sixth annual Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival. All the daytime venues are free and feature a wide variety of artists. We had a solid six hours of blues, jazz and fusion music before heading back to a delicious dinner prepared by our hosts. This morning we enjoyed a leisurely drive home.

How do you like the new header for the blog? After tending Marie’s orchid while they were away this winter I got used to having one in the kitchen window so I went out and purchased this one…which I have had fun photographing. It’s a more appropriate photo for the season. It was easier to upload than I expected so now I can change the header seasonally …or more often.
