Dear Son

While you are, without a doubt, enjoying 90 degree weather and your grandparent's swimming pool, we awoke to 60 degrees, grey skies and low hanging clouds.
We also made your sister go on a loooong hike with us...

Great Toys - Really Cheap

Kid's only fleamarket downtown. 6 hours later she had made $130. Enough to buy a whole bunch of new toys!

So Off To The Beach I Went

You would think that there isn't anything that can fascinate a boy more than travelling with the new Airbus 380.

But apparently catching a one eyed crab is a lot more exciting.

Go To The Beach

That's what my fortune said when I opened my fortune cookie after our last New Year's dinner.

Bon Jovi ~ Look Who Got To Play Richie Sambora's Guitar ~

I was supposed to go to this concert, too, but couldn't make it because of work. Like many other times. Being a bit jealous I am standing in the cabin, serving lunch in first class when I notice a few tough looking guys with tatoos and cool t-shirts. They look quite different than every other first class passenger.
"Do you know who they are?", I ask my colleague while getting ready to serve the drinks. "I have no idea", she answers, "but they are very, very polite".
When I get to the first heavy metal looking guy I tell him "you look like you are in a band", which makes him smile. "Slayer", he grins.
Husband is going to be so jealous!

It seems I can't be bothered to buy anything else but fresh fruit and vegetables directly from the farmer's market right now.

Daughter's school play was a huge success. There was not an empty seat in downtown's theater.
Of course, I had to work and missed it again. Unlike husband who has seen every single performance and can quote whole sections of it.

Birthday Party

Daughter's party, only 2 months delayed. Involved a farm, bread baking, horse back riding and the petting of tiny baby rabbits. Ice cream and lots of candy.
The best part was that I could drop the girls of at the farm and the farmer's wife handled it from there. 8 super excited, giggly girls.

I bet the rabbit family was relieved when we finally left.
