Well, once again, the days have gone by and I didn't find time to do some posts.
There are so many things that have taken place and so many more things to take place. Where does one begin?
Let's start by confessing that I received my first speeding ticket in almost 20 years last week. This one will hurt! I was doing 108 kms. in an 80 km. speed limit. I had just passed someone and came over the hill to encounter an unmarked police car. I tried to explain to the officer that I just passed someone but she wasn't interested in my story. I admitted I was, indeed, speeding but there was a reason for it. $135.00 later and I'm sure a couple of points, it's now in the past.
I was busy with some meetings for a sale I'm helping chair in September called "Artisans & Arpeggio" for the Keene United Church. We will have artists selling their works, various unique food vendors and will serve wine and cheeses from the area. This is a fundraiser to help the church repair a very, very large and very, very old stained glass window in need of some tender loving care. I just finished drafting a contract for all the vendors which need to get mailed out.
We also spent a couple of days getting ready for a community garage sale. The sale was Saturday and was not a huge success. The up side, however, was we met some new people who have moved into the Keene area and thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ held afterward. I'm more and more convinced that garage sales are a waste of time. I will post the larger items we had for sale on Kijiji and see what happens.
I've entered four more Juried Art and Photography Shows and two of them you enter your work and they pick what will get shown the day before. The other two, you're required to send .jpg photos and they will be juried and then you're notified if you're accepted. It's a fair amount of work to prepare for these shows.
I've also been invited to attend a photo shoot on July 9th at the Picton Beach marshes on July 9th. This will be a first for me, so I'm really looking forward to it.
At the moment, I've been sick for two days and really don't have much energy or enthusiasm for much. I must 'buck up' and keep on moving.
Below are some of my photo submissions for the art shows.....
