just another random Saturday
A shipload of sock yarn all dyed up in greens and charcoals. Knit it up myself or fire up the defunct shop?
He still bites. He's still gorgeous and loving when he feels like it. His favourite snoozing spot is the pink chaise.
Son #2 went on the big 16-day farming camp that the Year 9s always go on. They work hard on the farm, and in their free time most of them make bush furniture. When Son #1 went two years ago he brought home a magnificent stool he'd made, which he uses as his guitar stool. Son #2 decided to get in touch with his inner hobbit, and made ... a staff.
I'm threatening to sew him a velvet green cloak. Note, he refused to pose with his [admittedly, rather wonderful] staff.
It's cobweb season again here in Cobweb Country. Usually they're the single thread sort which appear overnight, but this amazing web appeared in my kitchen the other morning, strung between the recipe stand on the kitchen bench and the pots 'n pans rack hanging from the ceiling and complete with miniscule spider in its centre. I couldn't bear to destroy such a work of art, but by the next day it had disappeared.
Son #3 finishing the last couple of pages of Lord of the Rings. Puffing out his cheeks in exasperation at glancing up and finding the camera on him. Oh Muuu-uuum.
