'Lyn's Family Tree'
(c) Denise Daffara 2010
It's Saturday night, our home is very quiet, I've just been working on this painting above, and listened to a podcast about the 'Pachu Mama Alliance' and the importance of the Amazon rain forest, very humbling ... it's a special painting done for my daughters tutor and been a couple of years in the fruition. It's inspired by my 'Tree of Wisdom" painting, I can see I would like to play in these branches for a while longer and daydream about painting many more tree's, spirals delight me.
I had a wonderful visit from a dear friend yesterday and she had a 'sleepover' at our home, we enjoyed a delicious meal, omg, even if I do say so myself... have a look at that!!!
It's "Spicy beans with Baked Sweet Potato" and since my coriander is a baby plant in a pot thats Italian parsley pretending to be coriander, with sour cream and cheese sprinkled lovingly on top. Mmmmmm, I'm one of those boring cooks who does the same dishes almost every week/fortnight, and so I am so excited to have found a new thing I can make that's super yummy and easy.
This was followed by a lemon meringue pie... but I won't speak much about that except to say I will definitely use a different recipe next time.
Having my friend over was such fun, we stayed up late laughing and sharing til late and solved many of our own inner worlds problems... 'de-briefing' is so helpful for women I find.
I have to stay up late and go and pick up my youngest daughter and her friends from an under 17 dance party at midnight... so it's going to be a loooong night.
p.s. I am very grateful and relieved to say... when I rang the Dr's a few days after my mammogram, and held my breath while the receptionist looked up my file and came back to tell me "no further action required".
