weekly stills - a collection

1. Morning ritual
2 & 3. People who know me know I am not a "girly" girl.  However, when my sister recently suggested we take the girls to get their nails painted I found myself agreeing.  I have to say it was $5 well spent, we had a lovely time.
4. She is getting too big for this now.
5. Artwork from my very talented friend.
6. Do not feed the birds.
7. Cheers to my mum, the birthday girl!
8. They are like little mountain goats in this tree.

Last week I loved this shot of a stately little man, and the light in this capture at boy eats kasha is just so beautiful.

weekly stills - the staycation edition

My husband's parents have been away these last few weeks.  They only live 40 minutes away, but wait for it.  They live on a golf course.  A golf course.  The eighteenth hole is their backyard.  There is a pool ( 2 in fact), a tennis court, a golf buggy.  Sounds like a holiday to me. 

So, with their permission (thank you so much!), we packed the car and headed up for a few days r & r. Like they say, a change is as good as a holiday.

We had a ball.  We think we might send them away again!

1. Plenty of wet towels
2. Raggedy Anne
3. I remember when they were both little enough to ride this.  Not any more
4.  This was not the only lizard we saw
5. Green thumb
6. In or out?
7. Afternoon scooter rides
8. Camouflage
9. Those golf buggy drivers mean business
10. My little mermaid

Joining in with  The Beetle Shack again for 2014.

" a portrait of my daughter once a week, every week, in 2014"

I am going to continue with this wonderful project in 2014 by only showing a portrait of my daughter.  My son is almost 11 now, and at present life doesn't seem so easy for him.  He gave me permission to continue posting a portrait of him, and while I feel I am generally careful about the where and when of when I photograph him, I don't think I am making things easier for him by sticking a camera in "his" space. 

So, for now, it will just be "she".

she - has the best laugh
