Around here, I’ve finally imported, sorted, tagged, and rated almost 3,500 photos from the first two weeks of our holidays. It pretty much took up my entire work day at my ‘cafe office‘ but it was worth it. Now I can get back to my ‘regular programming.’
Around here, I’m loving the purple flowers that Rick’s mum bought me as a belated birthday gift. Especially the cabbage flower. It reminds me of these ones I bought once upon a time…
Around here, we have finally succumbed to colds. I guess I should consider us fortunate to have made it this far into winter without coughs and sniffles.
Around here, Bear kept us awake from midnight till almost 3am on Tuesday night. It wrecked me the next day, and brought back unpleasant memories of what sleep deprivation is like. Thankfully, he went back to sleeping twelve hours straight the following night. I’m so grateful that our boys all like their sleep.
Around here, I have gone more than one week without shampoo, and it’s tracking well so far. My thoughts so far? Thank goodness for cocoa powder and arrowroot!
Around here, I can’t believe it’s almost the end of Season 5 of Offspring. Wednesday nights will just not be the same without my weekly dose of the Proudmans and their eccentric antics. Who else is a fan?
Around here, I am gearing up to make another batch of story books next week.
Around here, Bear is saying “Uh oh!” every time we read The Big Red Bus (his all-time favourite book). It is super cute and reminds me of the noise ICQ used to make whenever I had an incoming message. (Remember ICQ? It was all the rage when I was at university.)
Around here, we celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary by going out for a family dinner. When the food arrived, the six of us toasted each other with cups of water (and Bear’s milk). It was sweet to celebrate the occasion with boys. The night before, when I was trying to explain to them the significance of the day, they all paused for a moment and then Angus said (bless him): “It’s also library day at school.”
Around here, I am trying to incorporate avocado into our diet. I have attempted this several times in the past and failed. All ideas are welcome!
Around here, I am reading through this documentation of our family rituals from Autumn last year, and feeling rather nostalgic. It is all so precious. So very precious…
How has your week been?
