From where I sit..

The paint on the bathroom floor needs a few days drying time before we can continue with it. Last night I stood by the barn under a ladder. A hose attached to the kitchen sink brought warm water to a much needed shower. I watched the evening's bonfire dying down as I washed four colours of paint from my hair.

So now I'm looking at a lull. I think its time to do the simplest project in the house - painting the diningroom.

These pictures are deceptive, the walls are actually a pale mint green, but my camera managed some trick of capturing the green I imagine on the walls. Magic!

Happy signs of a houseful of kids...

Sprout is so happy to have his big brother home to play with him...
The borrowers are back to their old tricks making flamboyant demands in itty bitty notes.
Wild Thing is back to writing fantabulous "music" for the piano.
The chaos of renovations is forgotten each morning as I watch my boys return to their morning ritual of drawing quietly after breakfast.

My house is so much more peaceful when it is full.

Introducing the newest member of our family - LITTLE BEAR!

Wild Thing wanted a puppy. A boy puppy like him. A dog who would fetch. Little Bear is a retriever/springer x and looks like a miniature flat coated retriever. We got him at the SPCA. We can't imagine why a sweet pup like this would ever end up in a shelter!
He's super curious.
He's full of puppy goofy energy.
And we're pretty sure he's going to be a very handsome boy when he grows up, just like Wild Thing.
