My girls are posting snapshots of London to their Facebook walls at this moment while I do.... as little as I possibly can, actually. It is the day of rest after all. : ) So far that has consisted of fishing an old cricket bat out of the kids' bathtub where it was soaking. (No idea. It wasn't there when I walked by last time) I finished Pioneer Woman's Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. Best read in a looooong time. You might need to be a sanguine sort to appreciate as much as I did. Can't remember when I laughed so hard. When I wasn't wiping the tears from my eyes I was reading exerpts to anyone close by so they could laugh too. But just to show that I do think big thoughts here and there I've also begun one of my new library books so chosen because a) the base library is small and b) it has a couple shelves of brand new books and I have grabbed some unlikely combinations. Then again, maybe not so unlikely. I read like people watch tv. I need several channels to choose from at a given time.
In between I have edited a lot of pictures, watched Winnie the Pooh in the original with the littles, and eaten some chocolate. There was a freak accident involving the tragic amputation of the princess Polly Pocket's arm. Abbie said I should just help her put on her plastic gown anyway because she was pretending that arm was invisible. Girl after my own heart. We keep calm and play on.
Oh that all crises were resolved so easily.
So, pictures. These are from our horsing around the other day after fishing the kids out of the pool. (hence the pool hair ; ))
I made an awesome simple strawberry shortcake with fresh cream, thanks to a daughter who actually enjoys whipping it by hand. Pretty sure it came from Food Network here because we have enjoyed everything we have made from there.
With any luck that will be all the breaking news from this end. Uneventful is good. <g> Hope your holiday weekend (for you American friends) is restful and full of family fun. And some cake. There should be cake.
