just the headlines


  • I finally replaced my hot rollers that I could not bring to Australia with me 12 (almost) years ago.
  • Our 7 year old son is soaking in a hot bath with a good book. (There will never been any doubt this kid is mine !!)
  • Rory had laser eye surgery today. He took his prescribed sleeping pill hours ago. He may wake for dinner. He may not. As much as I'd like to see him, I hope he's able to sleep through the night ...
  • We had an amazing weekend away with the whole family:
nine adults
six kids
lots of food, laughter, and sports
time on the beach
plenty of hugs
sleepovers and snoring
a birthday celebrated
fishing and sumo
cousins and aunties and uncles
grandparents and nieces and nephews
brothers and sisters
japanese, american, australian
and heaps of it
  • I'm off to put the kiddos to bed and make a simple Spaghetti Aliolio dinner for myself ... and enough for Rory ~ just in case.

I'm using Google Reader, and I have so many subscriptions that I can't get caught up. I hate being behind in posts! But I love being able to flip through peoples blogs easily using the Reader's Bookmark toolbar's Next button!!

This looks like a dish I've made before. It's so yummy!! I like to throw in a bit of pesto too sometimes. or at least I did. it was Homeade pesto too, that Jeff made. YUMeeeee

Sounds like you had a good time over the weekend - hope Rory comes out just fine and sleeps well. I've heard that is the best thing for the first few days!

Love the bath and book - my favorite in the winter. All my kids do it, too!

ha ha! Yay for the hot curlers! I have not seen hot curlers in yeears! Seriously, it's been at least 20 years... my sister used to use them, and when she would do my hair when I was little, she would use them... so fun! So glad that you were able to get some more... 12 years without is a long time!

Ok, I am skipping on over to your foodie blog... gonna go check out that recipe!

So glad you had such a beautiful weekend :)

Hugs.. Amy

feel well, rory!

We just bought hot rollers not too long ago. Not for me, but for Chatty. I have a few pictures of her, but haven't posted them yet. I thought it was funny to see yours there too, although I didn't have to replace mine when I moved to Australia, or any other foreign country! :)
