Underwater

Today has been… wet. There’s been a little bit of thunder, a couple spells of heavy rain, and on the whole has been delightful (except where I had to run through it, ha ha). Forecasters are saying we’re going to get more of the same over the next week, so as long as it doesn’t affect the school run, I’m… Read more »

All the Good Things

Today has: Weather – It rained, and there was even a tiny bit of thunder. Alas, it rained on the school run, but never mind. We didn’t get soaked through, so all was well. Coffee – I’ve actually wanted coffee lately, so it’s been nice having a cup here and there. Dragon Age – I really do like this game,… Read more »

My Water is Tooooo Pretentious

Okay this isn’t the most inspired picture, even if it’s a picture of how my water is inspired by clouds. Yeah, your guess is as good as mine on that line of backlabel marketing. All I know is that the bottle has a sports cap, and takes up less room on my desk than the pitcher I had. I have… Read more »

He’s in there somewhere. I decided not to indicate where he was in case anyone was arachnophobic; he blends in well enough that it’s otherwise a nice picture of a random bit of outside. No, if I had wanted to put a spider in your face, I would have put up the picture of the dead one I found in… Read more »

The first day of school is over! We have survived the first day! Hallelujah and things! Both of the girls had a full day of school, and Littler was certainly tired by the end of it. So was Smallhausen, to be fair. Z and I both went to get them from school, so we had a lovely little walk back… Read more »

I cannot remember if I’ve told this story here before, so I will take a moment to tell it now. My first Christmas in this country, my mother-in-law bought me several rosebushes to plant in our ‘garden’ (if you can call a bunch of effin’ rock ground cover a garden) — because she knew I loved roses and considered them… Read more »

Solar Powered

I think that it is one of those universal cat things wherein they seem to behave as if they are solar powered. Not that I mind — there’s little that compares to the goodness of burying a face in a pile of warm fur, hee hee. Plus, I can’t think of any time that I’ve posted a picture from my… Read more »

Whoopsie

We got a knock on the door this afternoon. It turns out we’d left our garage open overnight, and the neighbour whose front of house is pointed that way wanted to make sure we knew. He waited as long as he did because hey, in a village, not like it was a real risk. And indeed, nobody took anything… though… Read more »

Oh My

So, I had my blood drawn for testing yesterday. And then I got a call this afternoon telling me that the results were in, and the doctor would be calling me Monday… oh my, ha ha. So whatever it is, it’s serious enough that they need to talk to me soon, but not serious enough that I’m going to die… Read more »

Allons-y!

Which is to say, I ran out of time to be clever or find a picture I liked, ’cause it’s almost time to go-go-go. Outside of visiting the vampire this morning, it’s been a good do-nothing day for me. Z, on the other hand, has been a super star. He took the girls to get school shoes. He took Smallhausen… Read more »
