So sorry for the absence, my dear blog fans (all four of you). I feel like I have to explain. You see, we decided to give up cable (partly to save our brains, partly to offset the cost of our new alarm and monitoring system) and with that, my passion for reading has been renewed. I sound like Jeff (I think paddleboarding is my new passion) or Brooke (literature is my passion...) but it's true! I'm such a nerd now, looking forward to Elsa falling asleep so I can curl up with my Kindle every night. Anyways, I'm obsessed with Jo Nesbo's murder mysteries so I've been tearing through those, letting this blog and my reader languish in neglect.
I'll try to be better though. Here are some recent snapshots.
I love her new rug. It's such a fun backdrop to my pictures, but it's cushy and lovely to play on. No more head thumps on the hardwood floors!
I love how relaxed she looks sleeping, with her hands behind her head. She had her lovey draped over her eyes as usual but I pulled it off so I could see her face for this picture.
My dad is here visiting this week to babysit while Jeff is up in SF for a commission (picture him in denim cutoff shorts and no shirt, painting a mural in a crowded office) and he's been having a blast with Miss E. She took to him right away and has been such a little peach. It was warm enough today for the pool (we got a new smaller one that heats up quicker than the last), but she just stayed in for a bit. I think she's still a little unsure about the whole play pool thing.
And the boys. Thor flopped over their bed and Tyr styling his back fur. They seem to be more needy than usual, I think because they miss their Alpha Cat. Good thing he'll be back in a few days, we're all missing him....
