We escaped to Quebec last week for some much needed rest and relaxation. We first stopped in Montreal and marveled at this beautiful and vibrant city. I was there years ago when I was too young and stupid to appreciate it, so I'm glad we stopped and got to spend some time soaking up the atmosphere. There is one thing that I couldn't quite understand. It's a city of extremely attractive people with an unbelievable ability to consume large amounts of cheese, charcuterie, foie gras, and red wine without looking like little dumplings. Is it the red wine that compensates? I'm just glad that I brought plenty of ENO because my WASP stomach was barely up to the task.
We then moved on to North Hatley, Quebec and stayed at Manoir Hovey which was a place that I'd been itching to go for years. As luck would have it we got bumped up (love when that happens) and got to spend a few days in utter paradise. It was so quiet- even the chipmunks were quiet- ok, I guess they are anyway. I've shared a few photos including one of my handsome husband looking like an' intelligent man with deep thoughts'.....who will likely not be very pleased that I posted it. That other one is the best shot of me from the whole trip.
So now we're back and I'm twiddling my thumbs waiting for some twinge of inspiration to overtake me. I think my mind wasn't used to completely shutting off. Or perhaps it's all the food that has caused a total creative block. I could very well end up painting only chipmunks this week or perhaps cheese. Just warning you.
Oh, and thanks for all of the kind comments about my work in the previous post- it means a lot!
