The renovations built up to a frenzy today as we sanded, painted and then finally started laying a new floor in the basement spare room. Work had to stop over lunch while Leo took a snooze in his father’s arms. Then after lunch I had other duties: we needed a front and back cover for the ABC colouring book that I was commissioned to make prior to Leo’s arrival. I was further inspired, now that I have a much better idea of the geography of Revelstoke, to make the back cover reasonably topographically accurate. Family and friends have all participated in colouring in every page: now it’s my turn to colour in the front cover – Ian’s dad can do the back one when he’s finished helping to lay the floor.
This is how the cover will look – the back cover is on the left. We also have to do a French version, as everything in Canada is bilingual.
