We have been negligent in posting. Time to try and get back in the habit! Today’s lovely surprise was treats from a colleague in Melbourne who was in town for the week. Yum!
With Cliff out of town and Laura at dance class, Colin and I went for an after dinner walk. We spent some time watching a heron hunt for his dinner.
It’s the time of year that we have swarms of gnats all over the neighbourhood. Tonight there were hundreds of large dragonflies feasting on them. As you might imagine, it is not easy to get a photo of flying insects from an iPhone, but this gives you some idea.
Laura and Cliff will have Nutcracker rehearsals every Sunday until December. Colin and I have plans to spend our Sunday afternoons making sure the cookie jar is full for the week ahead.
Poor dog got an infection on her front paw. Thankfully it’s now clearing up and healing well. She has resembled a sad lamp for a few weeks now.
Walking the dog
Pancake does not enjoy walking for me. Here is a series of photos of me “walking” her while Cliff was out of town. One day it took us 20 minutes to get next door.
Kids were pleased when their new Dino stuffies arrived. They are characters from a web comic (“Dinosaur”) about mental health.
Within 10 minutes of arriving at Grandmother & Grampy’s house, Colin was checking out old favourite toys.

When water starts coming through the walls, you need to figure it out ASAP. Not sure we ever anticipated rooftop leaf blower use.
Laura doing phone repair
Laura accidentally dropped her phone on the weekend and the screen stopped working completely. She decided to save money and replace the screen herself. She did a fantastic job and had the new screen in and working in about an hour.
