Weekly Winners #15

12 Jan

I am a little late to the party this week, but better late than never.  For more punctual Weekly Winners, head over to Sarcastic Mom.

This weekend saw me sitting by the lake again, near my parents house.  It was over 40 degrees in the shade but with the breeze blowing over the lake it was almost tolerable.  The kids played in the water until their hands were all white and pruny – see!

Prune Fingers

Boy-child took in a spot of fishing with my dad in an attempt to gain his Scout fishing badge.

Watching and Learning

Almost Ready

Here Fishy

When it was too hot to be outside (almost immediately) we spent the day indoors resting and relaxing.  For me that involved ‘cleaning out’ my cupboard to see what treasures I could find.  There was old school work to look at, love letters to rediscover and dresses to try on.  The dresses no longer fit me but girl-child had fun pretending.

Being a Brownie

And my very favourite – a portrait of my mum done when I was in grade 5.  Look at all that artistic ability, what a talent!

Clearly Mum Still Smoked in 1985!

It wasn’t long after this that mum stopped smoking, I wonder if this had anything to do with it?
