Forgive the repeat of photos if you're checking in with me over at Instagram but I thought I'd share some photos for those of you who haven't yet succumbed to the "new blog".

In the recent weeks/months we've had a lot going on. Nothing unusual but lots of "zhum zhum" to quote my grandfather. 

E has been sick for the last week and uncharacteristically clingy and weak. It's been a rough few days and it makes me thankful for her regular stellar personality. 
Our yearly visitor finally arrived on Thursday, after much anticipation. Happily he doesn't seem the least bit fazed that his sister has taken over his bedroom and left him with the couch.
The tank and steps are done and fit seamlessly and beautifully into our backyard.

We've already hosted quite a few baby pool parties and I look forward to many, many more. L has been taking full advantage of the heat and is doing his best to splash out every last bit of water possible.
I've started to sneak in creative working time during E's now regular naps. 
It feels really good to be playing with drawing and painting again. I'm not sure where this is going but for now I have a wee shop set up on Etsy as a sort of point of motivation...thinking about having some cushions and scarves made up. 

We've had our fill of wildlife in the backyard: baby grasshoppers, feral kittens, big spiders, fruit-stealing squirrels, crow vs. hawk's fun to watch E take it all in. She now thinks that all cardboard boxes contain small kittens.

no cat for us...we took her to the Oakland SPCA
Summer is so great. Definitely my favorite season...until Fall rolls around!

Ack! I'm kind of pissed at myself for not checking in more often. Your stock tank pool looks amazing and your little one is already getting so big! Off to check out what else has been going on!
