Pretty winter things at another christmas shoot... too bad they can't be done indoors in a heated room
there was also a live reindeer at the event. and I overhead this fascinated boy say to his dad, "Wow dad, it's Santa's reindeer! How did he get here?!"
and the dad said flatly, "He came in a truck."

it was snowing (which got me worried abt wetting the camera) but fortunately it didn't last long... and the other activities were indoors (like talking to santa claus.. who told all the kids to be good and do well in school, asked them what they wanted for christmas and made sure the parents could hear their request)

these photos are from an event at the local library, in line with their theme for the kid's reading program..
thanks for the concern and for wondering why I haven't been posting. Well, as my hubby puts it, the last couple of months of life weren't funny (at all)! I was throwing up pretty much most of the time, and hung around long enough at the desk and in the cyberworld to finish my work... before going back into a horizontal, or worse, a 90 degree position bent over the toilet bowl! I've come to appreciate deeper bowls, they have less of a backsplash when your stomach contents come hurtling out.
So, life is much better now, I have some energy back and some digestive powers back... it's all good and I can type smiley faces again :)
The reason of course for the weeks of tummy upsets and fatigue is that we will be having a kid in 4 months God willing! It is finally sinking in, thanks to ultrasound technology (you get to see that there really IS an organism living in your tummy) and the fact that I'm feeling better in general. The complexity and perfection of the pregnancy process so far awes and amazes me, it's all very precise and well thought out, and we humans contribute very little to it, if anything at all! I think this nausea experience has given me a greater emphathy for people who have had to do chemotherapy.. because a friend who did go through it shared her experience, and while it lasts (for her) a week after the treatment, it is certainly a challenging time.

Did a story this week with the paper on a program called Meals on Wheels, which is basically a daily food delivery service to the elderly or disabled. It's an initiative that runs in several US cities, and is mostly volunteer and church- based and funded.

Tulips have come up in front of our house, we didn't plant them, we didn't water them until later, didn't fertilise them... basically we can't take credit for them in any way.
