And we don't have any plans.
We never do really... old farts we are.
Perhaps we will go and watch the fireworks from the Skytower? Maybe I can read up on night photography today so I can try and get some photos with me new camera?
Hmmm... that's not a bad idea.
The guys are hoping it's not wet today so they can have a go at assembling the garden shed.
We bought the straight zincalume model, as to get one that was either green or cream was going to cost another $100! Ahhh nope, it won't be any bigger in colour eh? And as it's going around the back of the house no one is going to see it anyway.
I can't wait to get all the gardening things out of the dungeon (under the house storage room). Then we can tidy up down there and it won't be so crammed up with surplus household stuff like beds, chairs, dog crates and the like.
So... that's the plans for the day. Shed building for the guys, and reading up on camera operation for me. The kids are being really good, enjoying their new skateboard and scooter outside with other kids in our immediate area.
Oh and other thing I have to do today, and probably every day over summer... drink salty water! I am getting cramps in me bloody toes of all places! And I woke with a cramp in my calf the other day too. I suppose sweating so much in the heat is causing the loss of natural salts in the body? Most likely.
So. Water (IKKK) and salt. Anyone else have any other solution to cramps???
I was looking back over photos taken in the last few days and found this one:
ABOVE: I don't know how I missed it! It's rather cute, see the look on Dante's face... precious. It's a bit like he's thinking "Hmm, who is this dude who looks a lot like my Daddy and Granddad?" He's such a cheeky little imp.
I'm so happy he came to like Mike in the short time Mike & Joyce were visiting us.
I know everyone says it, but really! I can't believe how fast this year has gone. I hope like hell 2014 is kinder to us. I really don't want another year like 2013, with so many up's and down's.
Coco seems to be perfectly fine this morning... no shits thank goodness.
We got a parcel this morning...
ABOVE: WOW!!! My dear friend Anne and her daughter Toni-Maree sent this lot over for us!!!
I love the bracelets! The clothes for our bubs are just gorgeous... the crackers? Ha ha, a private joke between us.
THANK YOU so much girls, you so didn't have to do that!!! But... PARCELS are so much fun to open.
I am going to really enjoy switching bracelets from day to day... and giving some to our kids too.
Griffin has already picked one, and I'd not even thought to give him one! Oh well... he gets one then. *smiles*
Visitors arrived, so I just put these bottom two photos on without words... but I can now:
ABOVE: the Harvey Guys building the shed. Fun photo of all the 'Builder's Cracks'!
This is NOT the first time I've taken such a photo, but the first time with all 3 of them showing their butts. *smiles*
ABOVE: Brylee, Griffin and Bex showing off their bracelets. We ♥LOVE THEM♥ Anne, thank you so much again.
End of Day: well it's been a rather nice day. I got 5 mug rugs finished for Joyce and the guys got the shed partly assembled. They have to clear the area we want it to be in, which means moving my rhubarb patch, but it shouldn't be too hard.
Time to relax, and maybe see in the New Year.
Or go to bed... either way... I'm happy this year is ending.
