Random pictures of from my camera and phone that I never got around to posting...


Isabel with some of her friends at her school's Christmas pageant last year...she has bits of cannoli still on her mouth and teeth, I notice...

My favorite view in the house is of this hallway. Something about it is just so serene.
Probably due to the lack of clutter!

Have been starting to bake again and enjoying a proper tea time

Isabel loves scones. Or rather, she loves butter and doesn't mind the jam and the scone.

Made them rather flat today...I think I confused the thickness with another recipe when rolling it out.


Got a nighttime visitor in the middle of the night this week...sadly, it wasn't Jeremy Renner or Shane Filan...I suppose Isabel would be the next best thing! Certainly was when I woke up in the morning and snoggled her chubby cheeks!

I shall be very sad when she looses her baby fat


Poor Melly has to suffer through the indignity of trying on Isabel's clothes that she has outgrown.

She does take whatever we dish out to her with much patience though. She's a very sweet girl...

Who has obviously adjusted pretty well to life off the streets...


Changed the sheets back to white, in anticipation of the upcoming brightens up the whole room

Dug out my old Polaroid pictures from perhaps 10 years ago.... Pictures of people who mean a lot to me, past and present

Finally had time to drop in to the library this weekend and got my usual ambitious pile of books checked out.

The scary thing is that I do go through it all in a couple of weeks, with weekly visits to drop off those that I have finished and to pick up new ones. a reader.



Trying out the reds...I think I may like them better than the whites.

I don't really imbibe in alcoholic beverages. The only drinks I crave are hot, milky teas; soy cappuccinos and diet coke lime. But those don't look so good displayed.
