Monday's berries #604

Daily painting #604 6"x8" oil on primed canvas panel

It's been a busy weekend with away cricket matches in Hilton (about an hour inland from Durban) and what felt like a million teenagers in the house all weekend working on school assignments and partying a bit on Saturday night. You know you are getting old when you don't recognize any of the music they play and half of it sounds like noise! Oh my! So I have spent more time in my kitchen than my studio this weekend, cooking up a storm. I sound like I am moaning but actually I loved it....and I love having a full, busy house...and I love seeing people (and kids) enjoying the food I make! Preparing and giving delicious food is definitely one of my love languages...it's my way of saying "I love you...I love having you in my house"...ok my husband thinks I am crazy...but hopefully some of you know what I mean!

So Monday morning feels very quiet with everyone back at school and finally making it into my studio feels like heaven! Breakfast was a simple bowl of chopped strawberries, Greek yoghurt and a handful of chopped almonds.....NO cooking required! Yum!

I did get to have some 'camera time' in Hilton while we sat watching cricket. I got to explore with a new lens I have just purchased. It means I get to sneak up on my children and take really close up photos from far away. I love taking photos of them when they don't know I am doing it! Sneaky Mom! I can't wait to play with my new lens some more, I think I NEED a trip to the bush (wishful thinking).

My son Ross 

Ross had just gone out...very grumpy with himself and definitely not a time he wants Mom pointing her camera at him...but today he didn't know!
