The Weekly Courgette and Other Lovelies

The first week of April has been humming along at our haus...


We are the last gluten eaters alive.  (This particular homemade pizza is laden with zucchini,
mushrooms and spinach...we do a bit more vegetarian cooking during this season...)

During spring break, we had a wonderful, educational afternoon with our children at an
important local historical site:  The Gulf of Georgia Cannery.  These colourful pipes were a
 part of the steam-sealing section of the plant.

A very special family portrait I finished recently.  I was most pleased with the beautiful cheongsam  I painted my very beautiful subject in!

Mr. Hausfrau and I love going on dates.  Recently we went to a new place near my parents'
(thanks to them for keeping our littles while we got some alone time!).
We enjoyed the sausages, beer and this marvelous exposed brick-and-pipes feature wall.

What has been new and marvelous for you this week??

  6. Well, maybe not the last gluten eaters alive but our numbers are dwindling... Bring back the gluten! Pizza looks good. My guys won't eat pizza if there's vegetables on it :(
