Sunday evening sights

 Grubby little feet
 dog in motion
 Sunday evening TV
hard to believe these legs and feet belong to my child... nearly fourteen

 the 'sports slab' where our shed once was; Andy's latest big yard project, taking shape
the other big boy-child (they are both wearing shorts I made, which makes me happy, even if they have to be plain denim these days)

most excellent Sunday arvo drink invented by Andy: half a can of Mercury Hard Cider over ice with a dash of Campari and a sprig of mint. Seriously good.

(Not pictured: two loads of washing, two haircuts, two batches of baking, numerous battles/debates with the 7y.o., watering the parched garden, multiple kitchen cleanings, some book reading.)

Happy Sunday. How's yours?

  1. Aw this looks quite cozy and comfortable! I can't believe how your boys have grown! Young men, really! With MAN legs and feet. Sorry, it's the truth. Anyhoo, my Sunday was nice. Cleaning and gardening (which consists of pulling weeds mostly at this point) happened and also some sewing and a big pot of soup, so that seemed pretty darn good. Unfortunately it's now Monday and I have a Planning Commission meeting tonight. WAAAAH. Rude awakening.

  2. Yes, I have a man child too.
    Lovely pictures.

  3. I'm not in man child territory yet, but I appear to have hit an argumentative teenager style boy phase - would like my little boy back just a bit longer. We're on our school Easter holidays and the sun is shining here in the UK as spring is in full swing, it's just so nice to see everything come back to life....I'm thinking of getting chickens, do you still keep them? I also want a greyhound but one thing at a time. Bethx

    1. Hi Beth :) Yes our oldest went through a bit of a grumpy phase before he came out the other side looking massively teenagerish. I suspect it won't be the only grumpy phase but we're enjoying friendly teen as long as he lasts, ha! We do still keep chickens, and they're really pretty low maintenance, with the exception of a couple of battles with red mites (urgh). We wouldn't really be without them, they turn all the food scraps into eggs and fertiliser. And I'm sure there will be a greyhound for you when you're ready. xx


Hey, I would really love to know what you think. Go on!
