Faux Karsh

Inspired by Karsh's iconic pictures of the tulips on Parliament Hill with Parliament looming in the background here are a couple of the tulips in my front yard with a castle of a different sort :)

I joined my first quilting swap last year, the placemat quilt swap. It seemed so low pressure and friendly... and I had a blast :) Fast forward - it's now Placemat Quilt Swap 3. And while I haven't *quite* finished the one I'm sending out yet, I received this beauty from Laura in New Brunswick (along with matching pcnic bag and sandwich container full of ymmies!). I am a seriously happy camper :)

A new season of soccer starts. J-man is loving it. Katie is having way too much fun playing with her little friends to be very involved in the game. And that's ok, this is a fun league, they're getting exercise and enjoying our community :)

A week in the life - day 7

Playing board games together

A week in the life - day 7

I've taken all of the pictures, now I have to work on making them into a story for my scrapbook. C asked me why anyone would want to see pictures of our ordinary life and I told him - I have no idea what my grandparents' day-to-day life was like outside of what I imagine based on Leave it to Beaver re-runs. This is a gift to the future, a glimpse of our very ordinary, but very blessed lives...

A week in the life - day 1

I'm trying to follow Ali Edwards' 'week in the life' project. I'll share a picture (or two) from what I hope will be hundreds here every day.

Chip truck fries for lunch.
