"These are the days of the endless Wonder..."

have always LOVED that Van Morrison Song...
And somehow it has been capturing these days of late.
I amin awe-on many levels, at the intensity and innate ability of small children to live in a realm of NOW and with it-
-glee
-fear
-marvel
-humour
-sparkle
-resilience
-freedom to be
-authenticity
-loyal and loudly proclaimed LOVE (and dislike, of course!)
-all things at break-neck learning curve.


Here is how the days have been unfolding...


to begin, a re-warmed "Oh Boy" Waffle (see Better Homes and Garden's Cook book 1964 edition, y'all) rejuvinated in the toaster.
Gotta love those "breakfast for supper " meals that leave you with leftovers that you can actually EAT for Breakfast.




A little morning drawing session with stamps and glue and colors and all things BRIGHT and beautiful...wearing SMOCKS, of course.



2 Sibs and their buddy:
Nuzzlin with Mausi
(our somewhat indoor-adapted barn cat, named for its function...not to be mistaken for its Pet-like qualities. We have decided we like Cats MORE than mice-so the cat stays, for now.)


The evening bath line up.

Ha. Great photos. I only need to add the photos to my post on breakfast for supper, which we have a few times a month on those crazy days when we don't have the time or energy to get the job done. I love breakfast though, so why the heck not have it for supper?

Ah, living in the moment. Our children have a lesson for us everyday. Thanks for sharing this!

You know, dogs can be good mousers. At least my dog was when we had them in Cranbrook. He ate three that I know of. This weekend we were at our friend's property and he was going crazy digging around for them in the flattened brush.
