Well the Summer just keeps on coming and we are so NOT sorry…


And naps on the deck…
An tea parties…
And long forgotten math…
And finding the mother person’s phone… (Don’t you wish you could ring your keys, your camera… any number of things!!!)
And a team of home maintenance characters…

And dinner out…


And a Sausage Tasting Party – I kid you not!!! I tell you there are so many varieties of sausage out there that it is pretty unbelievable…

And tasting…
And tasting!!!
Not to mention a heap of dressing up…
And hats…
And world cup cricket…
And an amazingly busy week… with an awesome outing – watch our Saturday Spot…
And a late sleep on Saturday morning…
And a pile of library books…
Coffee in bed…
And breakfast on the table – gotta love lazy Saturday’s!!!

And heaps of arting…


And I seem to have got stuck in the week called inspiration in my sketchbook course… it is too much fun to speed it up!!!


And my favorite art work of the week was this cute little snake…

A young lady discovered Fancy Nancy and we may never look back!!!

    Hi Lucia, I love it when you stop by and comment!!! This summer has been great and I really don’t want it to end… our winter is probably more glorious than most folks summer come to think of it, but still I prefer summer!!! I tell you the sausages were fabulous: There were about ten sausages to choose from in each course: started with dried sausage, then South African, Round the World, Gourmet… You have no idea how many varieties there are!!! I love the spicy chorizo!!! Anyway, I hope you have a great day!!!

    So glad you shared one of your paintings. Those marbles look fabulous, you’ve captured all the different patterns wonderfully. Share more please!

    Oh JulieK, You are so observant!!! I think I am sneaking things past my readers, but no!!! I am planning to put our week that was posts into a book and I was thinking that my kids might want a little more of their mam in their yearbook!!! I thought of doing a sketchbook post from the course I did… but better post ideas keep popping up!!!

    Definitely make up the book and put more of the mother person in (even if it’s not in the blog part, but we’re interested!). Smiles.
