I have not done a single bloggy thing since Wednesday. I have read no blogs, I have written no material, I have not yet responded to any new comments. We have been busy with a visit from the boys’ farfar (Swedish for father’s father) as well as the typical Thanksgiving activities. I hope to get back into my blogging routine early this week.
I will not try to pretend to have some wonderful post saved up for this Sunday, on the contrary I rarely prewrite any of my posts. I find my words tend to stale tucked up on a shelf waiting for me to publish them. I will instead give you a few photographs and some random thoughts taken from our life this week.
These mushrooms are just a few from a fairy ring growing in my mom’s backyard. They were very pretty so I stopped to capture a couple pictures of them.
Later in the week, playing tourist in Seattle, I immediately noticed how the underside of the Space Needle resembled the gills found on the underside of a mushroom. I found it to be interesting.
And last but not least here is one rather poor quality photo of Carter grabbing the internal ceiling car handle during a game of Hands Up!. It was the very first time he was able to reach the handle and he was rather pleased with himself.
So there you go – mushrooms, the Space Needle, and little hands reaching handles – a very brief summery of our week.
I never tire of mushroom photos. Just catching up with blogging stuff too!
I am glad you like the mushroom photo – I, like you, enjoy photos of fungi and find myself taking way too many pictures of them if left to my own devices. 🙂 I am so far behind on my blog reading I fear the housecleaning may suffer.
I remember, very recently, when my little girl first reached that handle in the car. For a week she talked about how big she is getting. Little milestones. 🙂
He was shocked when he leaned over and reached up and actually was able to grab it. He hollered out “Look momma, look!!” If truth be told, I partially added the picture of Carter holding onto the handle so I could forever remember when was first able to grab it. My blog is the closest thing they will ever get to a baby book, poor boys! Gotta love those little milestones, that is for sure.
I hear ya! If I didn’t write about it on my blog, it would never get recorded. 😉
My 11 year old was just able to put something up high enough that I couldnt reach it. Sigh.
Oh my! At the rate Cody and Carter are growing I don’t think it will be too many more years until I am asking them for help getting items off of high shelves.
I keep a glass candy jar on a shelf, and just recently I heard the “clink” of the lid being replaced and realized that the girls are now tall enough to reach it! These little ones grow up so quickly!
Hahahaha – too funny! Carter, while lacking in height, has been known to drag chairs over to the kitchen counter so he can climb up and get into the container of cookies. 🙂
That is very nice, seeing the similarity between the mushroom and the space needle. Thank you for that.
I find that we humans tend to imitate nature sometimes on an unconscious level in the things that we create. When I find such similarities they intrigue me.
We call that the “Oh Shit” bar. What is hands up?
Hehehe. Hands up is a game we play where instead of holding your breath while going through a tunnel you put your hands up. This has morphed into including bridges and going over train tracks. It is pretty funny the looks we get from other cars passing by.
Almost like when you ride a roller coaster! Got it. 😉
