THis winter we have entered the era of extracurricular activities. Nathan is learning to skate and Emily is learning to swim. Her instructor calls her "a little fishy". Yah, I knew that. We've always steered clear of water areas because she would make a determined beeline in that direction, with intent to enter - clothes and all! This is much better -the instructor is making an official invitation to enter by singing something about speckled frogs. Note the concentration...Emily is simply NOT going to miss her cue. I think she's scared Jade sometimes....she just flies off the deck when it is her turn to jump!
Now, I don't remember this when I was learning to swim. It looks like fun even now - a train!
Emily is the second one in from the left.
And then we have the farmer boy and hippie chick. Both self-attired. I just love the creativity they reveal when the dress themselves.
Ok. This next picture might look a little weird. And, it is. It is my tea bag in my new kitchen bin (thus dubbed by region of Peel). It landed there with ceremony - my hands waving in the air and I was "ah-haing" with vigour. And there were a few moments when I was jumping up and down. Paul told me to stop jumping. But I think he understands how excited I am.
I may not live in the country or have a big enough back yard for a composter but I CAN STILL COMPOST!!!!!! Yippee!! I cannot tell you how excited I am or even how much more relaxed I am living in this townhouse, since the day the green bin graced our doorstep. I'm so excited. I'm even going to splurge and get a beautiful stainless steel compost container for my countertop - gorgeous and convenient.
