Pics galore and TAG, SIF YOU'RE IT!

L has been having a lot more solids in non-blenderized forms. This is his first piece of watermelon and wow... what a hit it was! Messy too! Cucumber was a hit as well, as was his first few bits of meat, mandarin, grape, pasta etc. He's turned into a regular little mooch, wanting bits of whatever I'm having!

A few more "my kid is cute!" shots... taken in our front garden and porch. As much as I am VERY eager to move, I'm going to miss our garden and a few things about our house as well.

From our trip to Woodend, at Hanging Rock... and no Laurent isn't actually sitting alone, I'm hiding under the rock holding him up, as if you couldn't guess! ;-)

Sheep. I love sheep. Most little girls want ponies. I wanted sheep. I got hugely geeked out and gawked out the window cooing over them. The sheep thought I was weird but eh...

Back view of Hanging Rock - the two little whiteish blips are a ewe and her lamb, which I thought was really sweet.
And that tiny little blip is L and I. I just liked the lighting and the way it gives you a sense of scale of each of the rocks.

We got a lot of comments on what a great idea the sling was for ascending the path... there was a ramp of sorts but it wasn't something I'd want to do with a bulky pram, up a steep incline - no way, no how! Gimme a nice portable sling any day!

And since Shae tagged me....

If you could build a house anywhere, where would it be?
On a few acres where I could have sheep, chooks, a big garden for veggies, a garden for flowers/L playing/our enjoyment and an agility yard. We visited Woodend a few days ago and somewhere like that would be veerrryyy much to my liking!!! (Too funny Shae!!! LOL)

What’s your favorite article of clothing?
A very cool skirt I got awhile back!

Favorite physical feature of the opposite sex?
Eyes... the window to the soul!

What’s the last CD that you bought?
Michael Buble

Where’s your favorite place to be?
In the sunshine with my family and the dogs in a big park/reserve/forest exploring!

Where’s your least favorite place to be?
Dentists. Ick!

What’s your favorite place to be massaged?

Strong in mind or strong in body?
Copping out and saying you need to be a bit of both, as when one is weaker in one area you can pull through by being stronger in the other.

What time do you wake up in the morning?
I'd say way too friggin early, except that implies having slept in the first place... :-/

What is your favorite kitchen appliance?
Oven. Because it produces calorie laiden cookies, cakes etc etc etc. Which explains my growing tummy.

What makes you really angry?
Being lied to.

If you could play any instrument, what would it be?
Violin. I lovvvveee how it has such a wide range of types of music it's suited to, to express any emotion you can think of.

Favorite color?
Green. Or blue. Or blue-green. I'm so decisive.

Which do you prefer…sports car or SUV?
SUV because you can fit dogs, crates and kids and all the gear. Except most SUV drivers are egotistical sods who think they own the road and anything nearby it on account of they drive SUVs.

Do you believe in an afterlife?

Favorite children’s book?
The Little Prince

What is your favorite season?
I love a crisp autumn day and the excuse to eat all that lovely autumny food!

What is your least favorite household chore?
The dishes.

If you could have one super power, what would it be?
To get my way, all the time, every time, on every matter! Bwhahahahah!!!!
If you have a tattoo, what is it?
No tattoo. I want one but I'm a big chicken, I haven't figured out where I want it and I never have lots of extra money. It's a symbol I've had for several years in a necklace, a celtic knot sun/moon.

Can you juggle?

The one person from your past that you wish you could go back and talk to?
No one really. I miss my dogs who have passed away though.

What’s your favorite day?
Wednesday. Just because.

What’s in the boot of your car?
A bunch of stuff I need to take to the Op shop for donation.

Which do you prefer, sushi or hamburger?
Sushi! But the catering-to-cultureless-westerners sort... I don't DO seafood, especially raw!

I tag Sif. Yes, I'm being a brat and only doing one person cuz I don't know who else reads my blog cuz you all don't comment!!! ;-)

Heheh I liked the comment about sushi "catering to cultureless westerners" that's the only type I like as well. LOVE shushi/nori rolls with COOKED tuna or salmon, or vegie, or teriyaki chicken, raw fish ewwww! :D
