wit & whimsy

Crazy dog lady: Took eight years for Rocky to warm up this much to Ray; more than half of which we’re spent as housemates! It takes dedication to wiggle into the heart of a chihuahua.

Around the house: plant babies have been transported to the new apartment. The rest of us will be joining them tomorrow morning. Can’t wait to get out of this obnoxious building.

Enjoying our last weekend in the Beaches area before moving midtown.

Crazy dog lady: Oscar impatiently waiting for papa to return home this morning. Lots of pitiful side eyes and sighs.

Offspring memo: one last opportunity to indulge before striving for a meatless and white flour/rice-free diet. After straining on the toilet for an hour (there were tears, whimpers and near fainting/vomiting) I think it’s time I’m careful about what I consume…

More handthrown/wheel-thrown pieces! It’s such a meditative and enjoyable hobby. Can’t wait to do more once we get into the rhythm of being first-time parents.

Offspring memo: It felt like Ray was the one with pregnancy brain on our trip north. He said and did bizarre and comical things; really went full DOgre on us! Also, it feels like I’m taking a million and one supplements these days.

Offspring memo: babymoon and our last camping trip as a family of four. We spent three days in Bruce Peninsula National Park, hiking to the Grotto, hanging out by the lake and taking a day trip to Tobermory. It was pretty, pretty, pretty pretty amaymay; despite the crazy flies and being bitten approximately sixteen times by Mosquitos, three of which were on my ass, one on an eyelid and one more too close to a nether region (when I had to pee in the middle of the night, it was pouring rain and I just couldn’t make it to the outhouse).

What I’m reading: The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd & I Remember Nothing by Nora Ephron. First one was good but second was underwhelming.
