Outside My Window... It is dark.  The frogs are noisy down in the pond.  It is warm but rained a little earlier.  I was hoping for a downpour or a thunderstorm to fall asleep to.

I am thinking...that the more people tell me I can't do something, the more stubborn and determined I become!!  I also get frustrated with people who always look at the negatives and never think positively or bravely.

I am thankful for...the gorgeous weather we have been having.  The beautiful Dandelion bouquets Samuel gave me tonight - he is filled with such love :)  Happy content children who find home a comforting place to be.  

From the kitchen...Right now we have 12 or 13 caterpillars in cocoons getting ready to break free as butterflies - they are in my kitchen!!  :)  Lots of fresh fruit and frozen fruit smoothies, lots of spinach wraps filled with raw veggies, and lots of yogurt and granola - thats basically what has been eaten the most during the hot weather!!  And plenty of water has been glugged!!

I am nightie - I'm in bed.  It is 12:30am

I am creating...endless art journaling pages.  Curriculum for a few art classes I am planning.  Posters for a few services I want to advertise locally.

I am going...downtown to my lawyers office tomorrow - and then to the bottle depot which is right opposite.  Depending on the weather, we will go to the farmers market tomorrow evening after a visit to the library to return books and a dvd.  
I am reading...a book on art journaling, and a couple of art magazines.  I am not reading any fiction at the moment.  At the weekend I am heading to Whyte Ave to buy 'Choosing Me Before We'  :)

I am hoping...M has a safe drive back from the Island and gets back Saturday or early Sunday :)

I am hearing... frogs

Around the house...I am enjoying being outside as much as possible and really making the most of the deck and porch.  Sam and Abby are also really enjoying the good weather and being out there - cycling, catching bugs, climbing, just playing the weekend I am getting a new propane tank and plan to bbq again.

One of my favorite things...Dylusions sprays!!  They are AMAZINGLY FANTASTIC!!!  :)  OMG I love them soooo much!!  :)

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...the children want a Venus Fly Trap - so we are going to the garden centre to get that and a few other things.  The midway/ funfair at Leduc Rodeo, the Now radio garage sale on Saturday and maybe the THEE  family picnic!!  Hoping my friend can come and visit with her dog for a playdate with Rosie!  Back to the science centre for the Observatory and the Robots exhibit again!  I want to see the Venus in Transit movie in the star theatre too!  Oh and the girls want to go and see The Hunger Games.  And Sam is hoping for a bit of rain and for us to go back to the dogpark with welly boots so he can splash in all the big puddles again!!  Thats my plans for the next few days :)

Snapshots to share...

Susannah isn't too well at the moment - she is fine for a while and then feels ver dizzy and sick.  She has been very cold for the last week too despite our lovely temperatures.  Last night she felt very ill and it was probably from being in the sun too much yesterday at her track meet - but she doesn't seem any better.  She rested this morning and felt well enough to come out with us this afternoon, but didn't feel too good by the end.  She slept in the car on the way home.  If she is no better by the weekend we will go and see the doctor next week:

I love Summer weather.  I love sandals, and painting my toe nails, and my new anklet:

We saw this house being driven up the highway on the back of a truck tonight.  Still such a funny sight to see and not one we ever see in England:
