All about the brrr…14 July , 2014
How bloody cold was last week?! Ag nee man. I am very tired of winter. Good news though, only 47 more days till Spring Day. 😉
Polka usually hangs around till we head off to bed before either curling up somewhere to sleep or trying to negotiate her way onto the foot end of the bed for some additional heat. On this day she couldn’t wait, it was just too cold, so she burrowed into the laundry.
Obviously I’ve been missing the sun, or the heat from the sun anyway. I pined for it by taking various sunrise photos on super freezing mornings!
This was going to be Nicola’s outfit for the dog show. After we changed the event to go to Delta park, she decided not to wear the dress – good choice actually because it’s not the best outfit for jungle gyms.
Clean and fluffy Polka on Friday night, in prep for the park visit.
The very awesome butterfly costume my mom made for Polka – how cute! She’s not in love with the wings to be honest, but she tolerates them.
Freezing out, but someone needed their shoes off anyway.
We convinced Ouma to join us, and she ended up on wing sitting duty. Next time, we’ll definitely go there again when it’s a bit warmer…brrr…
The pink terrorist sure loves her stick and stones, and pieces of random tree bark. I’ll have you know that I get at least one stick or stone every day from school, especially hand selected for me. These two were the finds from Saturday, and they are much more versatile than you might imagine.
The left hand one was used as either a fork, or a hair brush – on everyone in the house. And the flat one on the right was either a knife or a cellphone.
Definitely my kid, as she likes to name inanimate objects – but we used to have a little twig in the house called snoopy a while ago, and at the moment we have a longish walking stick sized branch (picked up on our walk with Chickenruby a few weeks ago) called Numtum. There were many long crocodile tears when Oupa took the sharp end off Numtum (I mean really, how is she supposed to defend herself now she asks me?!), and more recently I often get called to discipline Polka when she bites Numtum.
We get attached to our things, I guess. 😉
We had lunch at my brother-bear and SIL’s house on Saturday afternoon. Look at those two working so nicely together in the kitchen. Here they can be seen making chocolate spring rolls! Yumm…I ate waaaay too many of those delectable little things. Actually I ate so many I didn’t feel like supper on Saturday OR breakfast on Sunday, haha…
Sneaky sneaky K! 🙂 Thanks for the photo I found unexpectedly on my phone. I’m trying to pack Dominoes for Nicola to push over here, with varrying degrees of success.
Cyclone Nicola, adding some make up to her Barbies so they can look their best, as you do.
All things considered, it was a gloriously relaxing weekend. We got plenty of sleep, saw a few things, did a few things. Just enough so that I could still feel a little bit like I might be hibernating, or as close to it as humanely possible.
How was your weekend?
