22/365 Flower Girl

There cannot be too many flowers in Grandma's tickle trunk.
I just asked her to look out the window. She is very good at giving me serious looks these days.

The girls and I are growing crystals and so we needed a photo to archive this science fun.

20/365 Girls

Saturday morning is pancake breakfast at G&G's and no one wants to miss Grandpa Pancakes!!
Then they are off and playing - caught them all on the stairs with that beautiful morning light streaming in. One of my favourite places to capture them. :)

19/365 Succulants

I haven't had a live plant in the house for years, mostly because our old house had very little natural light. It was dark and most of the windows were on the north side of the house. And I do not have a green thumb. But mostly I blamed the lack of light.
In the new house we have oodles of natural light everywhere. So in anticipation of beautiful tropical greenery I bought several new houseplants last September. They all looked so promising but alas, they are fading rapidly. Too much water? Not enough water? Is it these energy efficient windows?
I think I just don't have a green thumb and likely never will.
When the last one bites the dust I am switching to fake plants. I will leave my gardening skills to the exterior of the house where I seem to have much more success.

18/365 Scientists

The girls just couldn't wait until after school today when we finally opened the crystal set and started making crystals. Science is so wonderful and they really seemed to get into it. The crystals are busy growing as I type and we are all excited to see how they turn out.

16/365 Reading Corner

A good lamp and a good book in a comfortable chair by the fireplace. Spending more time here is on the retirement list.

This little guy doesn't have a name but he hangs out with Addie on the buffet. I suppose I should name hime. How about Fast? ;)

14/365 Conveniences

There have been several times that I have found myself reflecting on how much I appreciate my new KitchenAid wall ovens.
