What we’ve been up to

We’ve been busy, busy, busy. Mostly with the new house, getting repairs done – over and over and over again (love Chinese workmanship!). We ripped out the weeds in the backyard and put turf in.
Before:
Old weeds
After (it looks even better after it’s had a chance to settle):
New turf
Geoff’s been cooking up a storm. First it was a steak and mushroom pie (so delicious!!):

Then a lemon-lime tart (just as delicious):

I’ve been cooking too! I made smoothies one morning for breakfast!:

And playdough:
Rrrraggghhhh
Playdough bracelet
The new walker got new shoes:

And we brought out the new easel for just a while (she’s a tad short for it right now):
Left-handed
Right-handed
Arlo also got accustomed to her new bike helmet (dad just has to get accustomed to the new bike – his birthday present – before Arlo gets to go for a ride):
Ready for biking
We’ve hung out in the newly grassed backyard a lot:
Looking up
Enjoying the last glorious days of summer:
Backyard play
And today we wandered by the lake:
By the lake 1
By the lake 2
By the lake 3
By the lake 4
By the lake 5
So that, along with heaps of other mundane stuff is why there hasn’t been much going on here. Sorry.

  1. If that’s your mundane stuff, then let’s have more of it. Such huggable photos. Oh the joy of being able to go outside – and still be at home!

    I hope there’s some of that scrumptious looking pie left? No, don’t say I’ll have to settle for a smoothie, especially as the colour is a bit suss….lol.

    That is one very photogenic little girl you have there – keep ’em coming, please.

    Glad you’re enjoying normal living, including frustration with tradesmen!
