I hope youre enjoying the Holiday season, and getting a chance to spend time with those you love!
Here in Quake Central, we are very happy we are that things havent been too rocky today!
It seems Mother Nature has given us a day off for Good Behaviour... famous last words maybe?
Our day has been a bit windy, but hot hot hot! And the high blue skies make it so much easier to get on with the clean up after Christmas, and for us, the tidy up also involves settling down as the family goes their separate ways and it is back to just the three of us.
Its been nice having my big boys home for a while. I love the way theyve grown into their personalities, and they continue to surprise, amuse, delight and horrify me in equal amounts.
Now today, theres the new presents to find homes for, because of course, they cannot stay strewn across my front room floor. Honestly, its a mess. Miss 5 explored everything, tearing packets, opening boxes. The aftermath remains. The fond favourites from past years get pushed aside, and this year we seem to have an abundance of plastic fruit and vegetables, pots and pans, and to top it off, a very cute Tefal Kitchen arrived. Shes happy!
My biggest surprise in the garden this morning
was the sight of a mass of Poppies.
Have been rather lazy today, but now that the family are away, I will get back into a routine of sorts. It a bit hard not being able to water every day, but we are doing ok. A drop of rain would be wonderful, but I dont want to detract from the hot weather that is needed by the tomatoes to grow...
Well, thats us tonight.
We are watching a Harry Potter DVD for the second time... It helps that its an interesting story, Im picking I ll get to know it very well in time, just as I have with the other Harry Potter books.
Love to All,
