The book, a description of the seal hunt aboard the Terra Nova in 1922, is an education in the lives of Newfoundlanders at that time. It really points out how much poverty and lack of education existed here in my hometown, where the sealing history is significant. And more importantly, how far we’ve come since then. Almost a century later, most of my friends have university degrees and live a life of luxury (comparatively) with excellent health care and workplace safety. Even in the midst of a world-wide pandemic, our inconveniences are incomparable to the every day lives of our ancestors. The good old days? They are the present time for sure.
Happy Mother’s Day to all who know the incredible feeling of being a mom! I really believe that there’s nothing equal to being a parent as a source of education. And a mother’s unconditional love lasts forever, no matter how good or bad we are! That’s a special thing!
Of course, my own mom deserves mention today, the beautiful Ollie (Gill) Davis; I’d also like to send a shout out to my mother-in-law of the last 21+ years, Louise (Burry) Kelloway.
We have a big shipment of new hoodies and baseball tees in the shop from Living Planet! We love our new merch! Before the rain started today, I got my son Frederick to model them for the website’s product pages and a sale poster for next week’s sale!
Duke & I finished printing the last of the Spring Print Run of Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, and Bookmarks on Monday evening. Now, I have piles of fresh prints ready for packaging! Janeite that I am, I am listening (again) to Pride & Prejudice while I am folding, gluing, chopping, signing, and stuffing prints to be ready to send out finished product to my customers by next week.
This week’s sale is all about Norton’s Cove Card products too! #MothersDayGifts #SupportSmallBiz #Cards
Whoever came up with that saying was ‘stunned as me arse’ in my humble opinion! Today I’m printing blue and green rainbow roll cards, mini-prints, and bookmarks. Printapalooza is still going strong! I can’t invite you in to see the process in person, but I’m hoping that’ll change soon.
