winter...



Well not officially for another week yet but we had the first snow that stuck. M was ecstatic and had to get right out there and try it out. She got out the door before I even had a chance to brush her hair!

Autumn (again)




Autumn.


Apples.


Autumn leaves.


Frosty mornings.


Crisp nights.


Hot baked sweet potato.


Big bright moon.


Blue sunny days.


I love Autumn. I love the colours, the sounds, the smells and of course the flavours. I even love all the Autumn jobs like raking and collecting leaves and cutting down all the dead things in the garden. I think it is still a novelty. Maybe I’ll change my mind. But for now I love Autumn. And what are M and A doing? Why being acrobats of course! I mean, anyone can just ride a bicycle!

watch what you say...

Ken had a business trip.
M: What time is daddy coming home tonight? (She can't tell the time but is obsessed with knowing what time everything happens)
me: He's on a business trip so he's not coming home till tomorrow.
M: what's a business trip?
me: It's when you have a lot of work to do so you sleep at work.

A few hours later at kinder
M: good morning sensei!! My daddy's not working today, he's just sleeping. And he's not coming home anymore.


aagghhhhh!!!!

I hurriedly reassured the teacher there was no need to call social services!

the girls


M is 4 now and is two. They're inseperable when they're both home which is great when it works out and nightmare when one of them doesn't want to play. They love playing lego, tea parties, hospitals- did you know you can cure cold by rubbing cream on your elbow?? and running up and down the corridor yelling 'ready.....GO!!!' That is, they both individully yell go and run so there's no competition as such.

I just love the Autumn light and the ripe rice all golden in the afternoon. Almost makes me forget that this kind of scene means winter is on the way!

one more try...

I was blogging sporadically and my computer crashed, I lost all my passwords and couldn't for the life of me remeber what the blog account was. So here we go- take two!
