Bathing Beauty!

…and no, I’m not referring to the dog grooming/bathing equipment.  LOL  I’m talking about the most beautiful girl in the world, who just happens to be in the bath.

Bathing Beauty!

Busy, busy day.

Spent the morning with the wee girlie.  Playing, cuddling, colouring, eating, getting ready for pre-k…  Then the afternoon was devoted to Green Party business, including chairing an executive meeting.  In the evening we picked up my sister Jewles, and headed off to the library.  Following that it was over to my parents for some supper, where we helped my Dad navigate through the maze of uploading media on his Mac and iPod.  Put the wee girlie to sleep.  Then worked on Christmas presents and played on facebook for a wee bit.  Now, laying in bed, girlie beside me, posting on the blog.  Whew.  LMAO

Tomorrow morning will be much the same (and my favourite part of the day because it’s just me and the girl), in the afternoon I’ve got presents to work on as well as some scrapbooking business to attend to.  Then it will be off to my parents place to help decorate the tree.  😀  Sooo looking forward to that.  Because we’ve just got the tiny half tree that hangs on the wall (will share a picture when we put it up) I really do enjoy helping set up my parents tree.  And I’m sure Lily-Ann will too.

Now, I’m going to share a photo of the girlie playing at the library.  Then I’ll be playing a bit of Warstorm on FB.  And nighty night.  LOL  Just me and the dogs awake in the dark (Damon is up on the desktop computer).  😀

Playing at the Library!


Last time I posted a truly mundane photograph (I believe it was of our refillable slurpee cups) I got a comment on facebook that read  something like: “I can’t believe you blogged that”.  LOL  Well, they can’t all be winners.  And today is no exception.  I’m tired.  We had a good day.  But I’ve just got a lot going on right now…  and nabbing a photo just wasn’t a priority.

So, fast forward to this particular moment, and I’ve got the wee girlie fast asleep beside me.  I’m laying in bed.  Grab the netbook from next to the bed, and realize I don’t have anything to share.  Looking around, I see the wee girlie’s clothes hanging on the rod that extends between the supporting legs of her loft bed (yes she has her own bed – a loft above ours – and yes, she is in bed with me anyway… I don’t mind, so neither should you.  LOL)  So what do I take a picture of?  The girlie’s shirts.


Like I said…  they can’t all be winners.  LMAO

Sometimes life is found in the boring details.  And the wee girlie’s “closet” (in quotations because it’s not really a closet, but that’s what I call it anyway) is an inspired detail that makes our small house work better for us.  We don’t have space for three dressers…  So the girlie doesn’t have one.  Lily-Ann has this space that was created when we built her loft bed.  It’s got two fabric organizers that hang from the pole.  One holds pants and pjs, the other holds things like socks, undies, leg warmers, and odds and ends.  The shirts and jumpers get hung on the pole.  It’s right beside my side of the bed, and makes  finding her clothes super quick and easy.  I love it.  🙂

There you go.  A look into one of the mundane details you never thought you’d know (or care to know) about my life.  LOL  Funny the types of things you’ll stumble upon in a Project 365 blog.

Be good to one another, and I’ll do my best to have something less ordinary to share tomorrow.  😉

The Lady Almalthea

The wee girlie and I watched The Last Unicorn this morning.  It’s a mutual favourite.  🙂  Then, this afternoon, when we were getting ready to head out to see Pop Pop and Grams (my parents), she said she wanted to wear sparkles to look like the Lady Almalthea.  When I asked her if she’d like a star on her forehead just like Almalthea, Lily-Ann couldn’t have been more excited.  So she sat very still while I penciled, painted, then sparkled it in – four layers to be exact, to ensure it didn’t smudge or get icky on her.  And then she proudly showed it off to everyone we encountered.  LOL  But first she posed (with her Pride flag) so I could take a picture of her pretty unicorn star… and she did her very best to look Almalthea-ish.

Playing with her piggie…

Here’s the wee girlie on her Pop Pop’s computer…  playing on Mommy’s facebook account.  She’s got a virtual pet on there named Sagee-gee (yes she named him herself).  He’s a little piggie who changes colour most every day, changes outfits regularly, and loves decorating his four rooms.  He loves battling his friends, but is too competitive to race (he doesn’t like to lose, or is it that the wee girlie gets mad when she loses a race…  hmmmm….).  If you and I are “friends” on FB, and you’d like to play with the wee girlie, let me know and I’ll send you a game invite.  😉

Not Your Mom’s Trans 101 (via Transgression)

A lack of acceptance begins in childhood, when we teach our toddlers that there are boys and girls. We set our children up for feelings of inadequacy or worse… There are a myriad of genders, and all are natural, normal, and beautiful. Why teach our children anything different?

I hope you’ll take time to read the blog post below. It’s well worth your time and consideration.

There is a huge problem with the way that people are taught about gender in this society. Children are indoctrinated early to believe that there are two sexes, corresponding with two genders, which are both immutable and non-voluntary and completely beyond our control. This worldview is called the gender binary, and it has no room in it for us. Trying to teach a new perspective to the victims of this extremely aggressive brainwashing can be daunt … Read More

The Hurricane Machine!

Instead of a photo, today I’m going to do you one better.  🙂

Here’s a video of the wee girlie trying out a machine that simulates hurricane strength winds.

…and please do your best to ignore my laughter.  LMAO  I couldn’t help it.
