Weekend Wind Up… Baby Love

Last Thursday at 2:22pm my beautiful cousin gave birth to an absolutely gorgeous baby girl. She’s an utter delight. I spent Friday evening cooing with baby love and admiring my cousin and her husband, passing on congratulations to them for their successful production of an amazing little human. By Sunday, I was grinning like a … Continue reading

Sometimes, I am a little envious of America

And that’s not our country’s history. Traditionally, we have a turkey at Christmastime. We gather together and eat and drink. But, as wrapping paper rains down over living rooms … Continue reading

Weekend Wind Up

Another hectic weekend passed by at Casa Flowers, and this one was a little extended as on Monday we went to Eastern Creek for The Designer’s v8 drive experience (it was my Christmas present to him last year.

Weekend Wind Up

Yep. That’s how my weekend rolled, the lurgy set right in on Saturday afternoon (how well timed) and I’m still really feeling it now, although I have faithfully soldiered on. The Designer built a computer with his own two hands. It was like watching a modern day superhero, I think even the cockroaches and the … Continue reading
