Gramma Camp in a time of COVID – Week 20 Tuesday

 That was a full day! My creche scene, finished one Christmas Eve when my kids were small, and they are 35, 37, and 41 this year! Isabelle set it up for me. I saw it in a women's magazine back in the day, the bodies are made from a cone of cardboard from a cereal box.

My new banner broke right off the dead stump. This is the BEFORE.

I moved it after my morning workout. It was so cold, hauling the metal ladder and drill in the wheelbarrow.

Pajama day for Jos! She didn't bother. 
Isabelle had a regular day. She updated the number.

     "So," says Josephine, "there is a tart missing. Who had one for breakfast?"
     Grampa confessed!
     "Oh, that's OK, then!"

I decided it was time to decorate the tree outdoors. Man, it was cold. About -8C., but frigid, despite the sunshine. It was a group effort. Grampa was in town buying cat food. Happy cat dance.

Ta da!

There was a break. They did 15 minutes worth of ball play! Clip4 from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.

Isabelle had a Girl Guides night. They were painting. We assembled all the materials. (There was a list!)

They watched a How To video, the First Nations artist was demonstrating the Norval Morriseau style. "In case there are technical difficulties or you can't join us for some other reason, the video that explains how to draw the fish can be found here.
Jazz hands! 

Jos heard Iz talking, and ran to check on her. She was just having fun with her group on Google Meet.
We began to watch: Highway Through Hell. It's all about truck rescues on the Coquihalla (AKA The Coq), which is a highway my son, Jesse's FIL used to work on.

The cats were hunting. Watch for JB coming around the path, he didn't even notice them! cats and hats from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.

Coyote was back. Coyote Dec 13 from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.

That video of the coyote was very clear. It was sure picking up a scent.

Tom said... is it cold here today, I went out to feed the birds and I'm glad to be back inside.
