This week we've been up to our eyeballs in paperwork and crayons, accumulated junk, and hand-me-down clothes... preparing for the upcoming school year.
This is only about half her cousin's clothes; I don't think the Queen even has this many outfits. It's hard work rooting through 1,000,000 bits and pieces, but there are some real gems in there. Like this...
Bagaaawk! But even Roz in a parrot costume does little to lift my spirits as of late; I am utterly overwhelmed and exhausted. Four-year-olds never stop talking and I'm with her ALL the time. My circuits are fried; and strangely enough, the PC's motherboard also gave up the ghost this week. When school resumes tomorrow, I intend to stare vacantly into space in absolute silence for six hours. So... I apologize for getting behind in blog land. Please bare (bear?) with me!
I leave you with some rather amusing photos of our dinner-time road trip last weekend, to my favourite little lake-side town, Port Bruce. (I know, do I go anywhere else? Not really.)
Brandon was kidding me this was a real baby. I think I believed him for a nano-second. I took a few "subtle" photos of the scene, but I think the gentleman on the left was onto me. He actually smiled at the camera in the third shot.
Here she is... here's the talker. "Blah blah blah blah blah... blah blah blah, infinity blah."
And here's a very nice spoon we met on the beach.
I want to live right here.
Fish-slapped: A lovely older couple had just caught a sheepshead fish and asked if Roz would like to see it. So she ran over and then the fish slapped her in the face. "That fish hit me!" And I just happened to be there with my camera and caught the after-effects of the slap. Okay, her expression still makes me laugh. (It's rather therapeutic this.)
The best part of a dinner-time road trip is being there to witness the sunset... pink-highlighted windmills dot the man-made cliffs of Port Bruce.
And driving home at dusk through small towns and farmland, as the dipping sun peeks behind hilltops and trees, casting vibrant pink and orange hues that fade into night.
