L's God Daughter and my sweet little lady bug!


I just finished our outdoor planters last week & then I saw this one online today. I put one gourd in ours but this one has a gaggle of gourds. Apparently you can never have to many. I love fall and now the weather has finally turned cold it is time to pull out our hats & mitts and enjoy all fall clothing!

It has been a while since I've blogged. I have been slowly trying to find my fall routine. I say slowly because I'm not ready for fall. My head is still stuck in summer. I had to wear my fall coat this week on my morning trips to Euan's nursery school, Brrrr.

 My son Euan asked if we could go swimming this afternoon. "We could but it would be mighty FRESH" I said. Fresh is our code word for cold. I thought it would be a good idea to make up a code word for cold instead of actually jumping in and yelling it's cold. I didn't want to scare the kids off but they figured it out pretty quick. It was mildly amusing for our family & friends this summer.

Thursdays might just be my favourite day. I went to the gym this morning and dropped the kids off in Good Life's Jump program. I took Gavin's Body Attack Class- it's awesome if you live near the Eagleson Goodlife. I punched and kicked my big heart out! I seem to be getting more and more coordinated with age, or maybe it's confidence. *smile* I wish Gavin taught this class everyday but he told me about a spin class he does on Monday's that I said I would give a try. I told him my idea of biking is slow and steady down the Ottawa Parkway on Sundays on my Italian Mary Poppins bike. I will give spin another try, who knows, maybe it will be my new Monday class.

 Here are a few pictures I took the other day. Only four more days of summer folks, enjoy! LLBC xo
