Rainy days

This is the front cover of the much-anticipated mini book book by Ali Edwards. I can't wait to peek inside. It's up for pre-order here
Lately, it's been raining here and boy when it rains, it pours. Om, Nini and I sit by the window and cuddle. Then they doze off and I just sit there listening to the rain. Sometimes, I read or just be lazy. In this last week, I finished reading "Three Cups of Tea", "The Kite Runner" and still waiting to get my copy of "Unaccustomed Earth".
Not been scrapbooking too much lately. I'll wait for Nini to start school. Today, we shop for school clothes and backpacks.

As promised

a long time ago... here are my Luxe pages, well, the ones that we are allowed to post at the moment... and some Rusty Pickle pages.
And another update: Our Venus Fly Trap has not yet managed to catch a fly and my children are worried that it will never gain weight!

Halfway into summer and we have taken a surprise road trip, visited MOSI twice, the zoo once, the doctor five times; had 4 pairs of swimmers' ears and two sets of new swim suits; consumed 72 cans of soda, 10 corns and 13 band aids; watched marathons of Peter Pan, Cars, Chicken Run, Meet the Robinsons, The Incredibles, Chicken Little and more; read 15 books, finished three journal projects with active kid participation and spent this whole morning waiting for our new puny Venus Flytrap plant to snap at a tiny elusive fly!
When I think of my summer days now, I also remember my childhood summers spent with my grandma. It almost feels like a past life, so different from my now! So, here's to those lazy country summers the thoughts of which always refreshed and enriched the days I spent in the city.
And before I go back to being lazy, l want to say THANKS for all the sweet things you guys wrote to me and all the good luck wishes you sent my way!!!
