Seems the weekend just slipped by. We had our ATC trade on Saturday where we had intended to celebrate one of our traders' birthdays. Unfortunately, the birthday boy was a no show, but his daughter was there, so she took a piece of cake back to him plus all the wonderful "Happy 90th" artist trading cards that everyone made for Perry.
Besides that, yesterday was the Grey Cup, Canadian Football League's final game this year between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Saskatchewan Rough Riders. The Bombers lost. Boo hoo.
During the game, Richard and I made our fruitcakes, which has become a tradition with us (and is made on Grey Cup weekend). It's an old fashioned recipe from (Canadian) magazine Harrowsmith and has tons of nuts (5 cups of pecans, 3 cups each of walnuts and almonds) and very little of the 'too sweet' stuff (for instance, it has figs instead of green cherries). It's wonderful (and it makes 5 loaves).
I thought I'd post a few b&w drawings I'm selling on Saturday at our art sale. It's coming quickly.
