Canada Waits For Christmas – December 14th
Today I spent the morning reading with young students. If only every activity were as rewarding as that!
I really like these 1905 and 1956 Christmas catalogue cover images from T. Eaton Co.
“Lies” is Stan Rogers‘ (1949-1983) compassionate and heartrending song about a prairie wife’s life – not the life for me. I knew it before, but this song confirms it.
“Sure was a bitter winter but Friday will be fine
And maybe last year’s Easter dress will serve her one more time
She’d pass for twenty-nine but for her eyes
But winter lines are telling wicked lies”
I’ve known about Allen Sapp’s (1928-2015) work for a while, but I just discovered today that he was a painter from Saskatchewan, and both lived and died a few hours away from where I live now, though he was in Saskatchewan and I’m in Alberta.
Thanks for taking the time to drop by in the midst of your holiday prep. Take care. – Lori 🙂
