morning...


(that's geo... btw... mr. ham-it-up.) :D

Well I kinda made BIG mistake yesterday.
Paying close attention to your children, their sun block and the power the the glorious sun... and forgetting all about yourself... is a really dumb dumb dumb thing to do. :D
~ this is the first time in my life that I've burned ... the top of my head. :D  That "balding thing" needs to be kept in mind!! So it's HAT BOY from here on out. :D

We had "Family Fun Day In The Park" yesterday... a community association sponsored even.  It should be re named to "Family Line Up and Wait Day In The Park" but whatever... the kids had a blast.  W

I started work on the basement wall yesterday... putting in some wiring and wrapping the junction boxes in vapour barrier plastic... ug... Insulation goes in today...

We picked up my MIL and the gang of us went to the Mongolian Grill for dinner... (a place where they serve you a stir fry that you put together from a "salad bar" type place with all the veggies, meats, noodles, sea food, sauces, etc...)  and then watched "Big Fish" at night. :D (and I have "army of darkness" for tonight. :D :D :D)

wearing
~ a white t-shirt...
~ green ftls...
planning
~ hit the showers...
~ make loads of food...
~ take off to Carleton University for a "Tim Bits" soccer turney... (for Edward... but we're all going)
~ more wall work later...
wishing
~ I had a spare moment... but I don't... I gotta hit the showers and then get out to the soccer thing.

So I'll read and get into it later... skaters... :D

(no subject)

recently overheard:

"Mommmm!! Edwards' tampering with the cookies...!!"


The soccer deal was great... huge city wide turn out... but NOT A SINGLE OTHER PLAYER from Edwards team... so he stepped in to another Kanata team that was a player short and had a great game.  They got their Tim Hortons TIMBIT medals... and various little soccer things...

Meanwhile my camera languished on the table beside my desk at home... (sniff!!)

Now the boys are watching... er... "enraptured with" is maybe a better way of putting it... the movie "Big Fish". :D

I want to nap... but alas (earwax) I have to go do wall-work in the basement...
hmm... maybe just a little lie down...

FOP* time...

A friend at the soccer tourny shot a few pictures for us... and she sent them along. :D

This remarkable, trimmed, lined and healthy! big ass honking field was the playground for a zillion little miniature soccer players from all the leagues in the National Captial Region. 
This is us... but check the field around us...
It's ringed with bleachers and fences and hedges... very nice.



Anyways, the kids are bunched into groups of games based on the part of the city they were from...
After the Kanata thing was done, it was shoes off and shoes on time...


They had really huge 'inflato-play-things'...
sixty foot slide and the bouncy moon walk thing...
A train ride around the park... clowns and balloon animals etc. etc...
This is more "us" and you can see the slide in the background.


It was... you know... a nice time for kids. :D

Humming "The Can Can Can"
Geo slips the Moulin Rouge dvd in so he can hear it as a backdrop to playing with some toys after Big Fish.
The Ewan McGregor connection was noted within minutes of starting Big Fish.
And he absolutely digs the music and singing in MR...

His favourite cd? A requested christmas prezzi... the soundtrack to "The Two Towers".
(er... ok, he likes Avril too...)

Music plays a special role in that boys spirit.
