Mom is celebrating her 82nd birthday today. And the great news is that she went to her Dr and he gave her a clean bill of health. She is very healthy and to keep herself in that manner, she started learning Taichi this week. She is also learning water colour painting. They are both 10 week courses and she had her second class of water colour this week. She is also part of a lunch club that meets twice a month. All these activities are offered through a 55+ group in the south end of the city called PAL (Pembina Active Living).

She said that since she was a little girl, she wanted to learn to paint and draw but her parents did not have the financial resources to send her to learn so she learned on her own. How? She taped a lot of painting shows from PBS TV and taught herself. She is a pretty good artist using acrylic paints. I have one of her paintings hanging in my front hallway. I think Bena and Sophie also have one each. Karran wants one too so when she's done with one of the water colours, she may give that to him.
Have a great weekend,
