Whew! Hi there! How are you doing? I’m doing fine, thanks. Things have been a little crazy around here these days. I imagine you are experiencing something similar. After all, life seems to be busy no matter who you are. Hopefully you're doing something you enjoy, wherever you are.

Here’s a glimpse of some of the things that have been keeping me/we busy.

Visiting Cottage Cove and the Bay of Fundy this past Sunday evening for my ocean fix.

Para liked it too!

Sunset shot. Isn’t it lovely? Sigh. It only takes us seven minutes to drive to the shore by car and it still isn't close enough.

Our two cats are becoming grand friends. This is singularly spectacular particularly if you are one of the chosen few who saw these two together the first year. It was tough. They must be siblings as they still fight sometimes too…

Our little boy is becoming quite the bookworm.

What fun is a dishwasher if you can’t play in it?

I really think Iain has the right idea here; I’d much rather play in the dishwasher than load/unload it any day. Mind you, I have a feeling the dishwasher door wouldn’t appreciate my weight placed on it like it's tolerating Iain's.

My Daddy wears combat boots (and I am too bloody busy to let my mother put my pants back on after a potty break – thus the à la diaper shot).

The only stitching going on around here this week (but, hey, I have made progress!).

I always thought cross stitch is some of the prettier more elegant fiber arts. Very pretty.

I love the pic of you and Iain with the sling - great smiley shot! =)

WHEW! I think I'm caught up. Iain has grown so much, the spot on the dishwasher door was a favorite of Terrorists as well. I'm glad you got the yarn untangled and I'm very jealous of your 7 minute trek to the Bay of Fundy, such a cool place! Glad all is going well, go find those capri's and sandals and give a big Welcome home kiss to Daddy ;)

Wow, he's getting HUGE! Still as cute as a button though. :) Today I caught Ethan ...he had scooched over to the coffee table and had his chest up on the shelf grabbing at things. He is rolling around everywhere and scooching ... though he cannot scooch forward yet so he gets PO'ed a lot. BUT he is starting to get up on his knees. SOon he'll be crawling.

ANYWAY, this is your blog, not mine, so I'll stop gushing. LOL

I love the cross stitch. It's lovely. :) Gorgeous pictures too. How does your pup like Iain?? Best friends?

The cross stitch is beautiful! Love, love, love the pics! What a great way to tell what's going on!
