What, pray tell, do the above three things have in common? They are all part of another busy weekend here at the Krauss house! On Saturday I attended a silk painting workshop that was held here in town courtesy of local artist Mila Landsdown. In the end I came home with a beautiful piece of wearable art and had lots of fun to boot.
Tonight we are attending a concert thanks to traveling musician - 'Gospel Elvis'. I won't pretend I don't have my doubts, but apparently he is good and some Christian friends of ours have given him the thumbs up, so we'll have to see. He came to our church this morning (not dressed as Elvis, thank goodness!) and played some mean Gaither style piano. The Gaither's aren't my favorite, but I do appreciate music of any style when it is done well, and this definitely was.
And what can I say about hockey? Yes, it's that time of year here in Canada, when most people are glued to their TV's almost nightly (or even at other odd hours ...) following the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Of course, most people around these parts are rooting for the Vancouver Canucks, (it's about time they won!) and I would venture to say, are also pleasantly surprised by Montreal's strong showing. Hm ... two Canadian teams in the finals...? We can only dream. I'm not a big hockey fan, as a rule, but it's hard to remain unaffected at this time of year, especially at my house, where my husband and son are avid fans.
So, if you hear me singing an Elvis tune and waving a silk scarf while watching a hockey game, you'll know what happened. :)
