Outside my window... good thing it's warm and breezy, because the clothesline is fully loaded.
Hearing... crows. Or ravens. Whatever. Their croaking is... annoying.
Pondering... for Gunnar's b'day I promised him a zoo membership and... promise fulfilled :D Gramma Grasshopper came along and we took Gunnar and Naomi to the Woodland Park Zoo (Seattle) on Wednesday. I'm scattering some pictures along the way :D
|Gunnar was very excited to hear that the jaguars have three cubs, so we headed there first. Cute, cute, cute! |
But not in the picture - that's the mom.
Praying... work for Kerry would be really, really good.
|Peacocks roam freely around the zoo. Very impressive.|
Thankful... just heard that my friends got to bring their preemie baby home, four weeks after she delivered (seven weeks early). Doing so well! Hallelujah!
|Naomi really couldn't see many of the animals, but the penguins put on a great show right in front of her :D|
Wearing... blue shorts and a white tank top. Supposed to be warm today (mid 80s), but I'm thankful for the nice breeze.
|Baby sloth bears, nursing.|
Going... nowhere today, I hope!
|Gunnar's favorite animal was out - the snow leopard.|
Reading... the Mitford series, by Jan Karon.
|So glad we saw him in the morning as he went into hiding later in the day.|
Looking forward to... probably spending some time at the lake this week.
|Time to get out and crawl around in the grass. We were on a bit of a slope and it was fun to see her figure out how to manage that.|
In the kitchen... marinating some Chinese BBQ pork, maybe for tonight.
|She wanted something out of the basket... love those little crab legs!|
In the learning rooms... temporarily made into a nursery for when Naomi visits.
|Success! (I'm holding the stroller so it won't roll.)|
Around the house... our focus is outside! But Tate has some picking up to do.
|Content with her toy and her grandma :D|
The Mother Load... oh, yah, I'd better check that ;D Keepin' the fridge full and the laundry empty.
|Another, later, get-out-and-crawl break. She LOVES for Gunnar to "chase" her.|
Noticing that... the house is so much quieter when Tate is gone. But I sure missed him! He was gone all week at the Arlington Fly-In. (CAP and the Canadian RCAC cadets camp out for the week and volunteer - basically run the show :D ) I just picked him (and all his dirty laundry) up yesterday. We were six, then five, then four, and now six again. Feels right :D
One of my favorite things... those big, blue eyes :D
|She gives Gunnar love-pats.|
A few plans for the rest of the week... Gunnar is over the moon. This is the week he can finally GO to CAP with his brothers. Amazing. I'd like to check in on my friends with the preemie, but they probably don't want visitors just yet. And with some warmer temps on the forecast, the lake is looking pretty good!
A peek into my world... in the back with Gunnar, on the way home from the zoo, just before she konked out.
