Preparing for a neighbourhood New Year’s Eve party, while still dealing with the load of laundry after the Christmas gang drove away. It seemed a classic multitasking situation. Or would that be procrastination?

The sky was all one colour this morning…sort of eerie but lovely. What does “yellow sky in the morning…” mean..let’s see: “Yellow sky in the morning, surfers heed warning”…don’t know, but it did look so buttery, like an oil painting.
This sweet family also left today..eventually back to Toronto. So happy to have them here for a chunk of time. As always, wish we all lived close to one another. As always, so delighted that Ryan and Tori make the effort to get here for visits, this time in such horrid weather.
These two, their parents and Kaia, also left today. The house is SO quiet. Now I can feel exhausted. Worth it. I think everyone here became sleep deprived. Blame the game “Sequence”…and the waking children. Again, worth it.
You might not see him, but believe me, Jockel was out surfing and could be seen from the tower, even though just as a speck! He’s been surfing a lot so not too shabby for hanging out with the noisy crew here for days on end. Like walking dogs, surfing gives you a reason to get outside, join nature, escape…regroup, return exhausted in body but restful in mind.
Forest had the idea to make a Pinata for the birthday boy. He knew what to do from a t.v. show…Makes me think I need to improve upon what I watch, so I can learn new things too! Ryan and Tori’s dog Lily watched the reveal, hoping something would come her way.
But look who arrived exhausted but SAFE..finally we are all together who are getting together in this household. Can’t believe the weather they drove through! for 10 hrs. of it too..Puts everything into focus.
That left us time to play a game once the three boys, baby Noah, Asa and Forest, were asleep. Lots of male energy around, but we women had Daisy and Kaia on our side of the equation. It feels like Christmas now!
