Easter Sunday & The Purple StainSunday, April 08, 2007
Rebecca and Lauren reversed roles with me yesterday at Granville Island. Rebecca had no ballet at Arts Umbrella and Lauren had a birthday party at Kids Only there, This meant that it was not Lauren but Rebecca with whom I had tea at the Granville Island Tea Company. Rebecca insisted we go to the Salmon Place to look at the trouts. It was here that I bought the trout for the picture of Jonathon Young as Trout Stanley. We also had a chat with carver artist Todd Woffinden and we asked him of the status of his partner Andrea Hodge. She is expecting in June. I believe that for Rebecca's birthday I may have to buy for her one of Todd's beautifully carved whale tales.
Yesterday was a pleasant sábado de gloria. I listened to Giordano's Andrea Chenier live from the Met (with no less than Ben Heppner in the title role) in CBC's Saturday Afternoon at the Opera.
At my request Rebecca coloured some Easter eggs and promptly dripped some purple dye on our living room's white sofa. I became a little furious. Once I got over with that we did the three scans you see here.
It is my Argentine nephew Georgito O'Reilly who says the most important activity of our existence is to converse and share food with our children, grandchildren and family. He is right.
Rosemary and I rounded out the day by enjoying a powerful, off the wall and really very funny Trout Stanley at Performance Works on Granville Island where I had begun my day. We both look forward to serving a meal to our family this afternoon.
