The art council is responsible for governing the various art groups in our county, so the potters, the painters, musicians, theater groups, etc all fall under this one umbrella. As a director I understood that my position would mean facilitating several symphonic concerts throughout the year and being involved in the art shows and fairs. I was pretty delighted to discover that it also means I get to be on the forefront of a large multi-million dollar art center being built down town. There is so much going on, and I love being involved in all of it :D.
I also have a radio commercial now, for my cake business. Its pretty cool, and I’m happy with how it turned out. Wanna hear it? Go here to my cake blog, or click here to just listen. Its time to start kicking it into high gear for the Christmas season, so hopefully it will be a busy one! Then in January I’m due to begin teaching at the Loblaw Cooking Schools. As far as I know, I’ll be teaching in 6 different stores within my area.
Greg and Pauline had their baby – Garret Gregory Sentance was born a few days ago – about 4 weeks early, but happy and healthy :). Both momma and baby are doing well, but Rilynn (their daughter) has just caught the flu so its a delicate balance of keeping her home, the baby at the hospital and mommy and daddy germ free as they go back and forth. Gods grace…
And other than that, last week I canned my first preserves. I’m pretty proud of myself; Canning has always intimidated me a little, but I thought that maybe it was time to conquer that one. I made orange marmalade, and other than being horrified (and slightly thrilled) by how much sugar goes into jam, I think I would classify it as a success. We had the girls last weekend and they took some home with them, I hope they like it!
Take a look at Joans blog too – she won a photography contest :).
