I am pretty sure this book was thought of while having the same conversation that I had with my children this morning; though Romilly doesn't actually say English words yet. There is a lot of baby talk agreeing with Euan's "it's too hot!, It's too cold!" statements while eating porridge.

It's too hot- I pour milk on it. It's too cold- I put it in the microwave when in actual fact at this point my children are just enjoying the show of Mummy running around pandering to their every whim and are saying it just for a laugh. 

The words that are most used by Euan right now are too hot, too cold (this is used at bath time as well ), snack, all done! (mostly used when I sing) please, thank you & Nooooooo! 



The full moon will be completely caught in the earths' shadow. At the onset of the eclipse the moon will gradually appear to become a rusty red color.  We North Americans are going to have one of the best views of it so set your alarm clock's for 3:45am people!


I could eat a dozen of these after the weekend we've had. They look delightful!

Who knows what happened with C. He probably forgot to mention to his mother that he was coming until the last minute and she freaked out. We will never know for sure what the true story was. 

Our baby is on the mend. He asked to have pancakes for supper tonight. I'm going to keep him home and away from any other kids for a couple more days just to keep every one safe. 

 We are blessed to have each other and our beautiful children. There is a lot of love and laughter in this house and we have so much to be grateful for in this life.

 I should also throw in that it was 25 degrees here in Ottawa today. What a change from the pile of snow that was here a week ago.

Last night was book club night. The book was The Book Thief.  I'm not going to review the book, there are already many favorable reviews out there on it. I joined book club mainly for a girls night out and have had the bonus of reading some great, some not so great books in the process.

What I will review is the wine bar we met at. It's called 4th Ave wine bar. We had a big enough group that I saw a bit of everything that they offer on the menu including the dessert.  I had the triple chocolate mousse cake.

It has the great atmosphere and ambiance I've been missing in Ottawa. The wine was described by one of the girls last night as delightful. Our waitress was busy but attentive. She was also pretty awesome to share some of her favourite Ottawa restaurant finds, which was pretty nice of her.  The food was a little slow coming, but I only noticed that because a few of the girls had to leave early. If that wasn't the case it wouldn't have mattered because we were all busy catching up and enjoying the great wine!

They are located on 107 Fourth Avenue in the Glebe just east of Bank street. In the first row of old houses on the left east along Fourth avenue. They don't take reservations but heard they are pretty good at squeezing everyone in. It's my new favourite for that part of town. It's super cozy I can't wait to bring Husband!
