Goodness, I'm working and working hard. This "9-5" nanny job is much more like an 8-6:30-7 job.


The girls are cute; hyper, a bit ADHD and hard to control at times, but imaginative and enthusiastic about being creative, and they love to swim (even if they don't like watermelon. WHAT THE HELL, WHO DOESN'T LIKE WATERMELON?!?!)
I am all moved out of the apartment; handed in the keys today.
Saturday I'm going to catch a train up to emerald beach to spend x-mas through new years up there.
I am swimming laps again, three times a week at least, and the other days I've been taking the girls to the beach and swimming there. I hadn't realized how much I missed it. I hadn't realized how out of shape I am. GOD I remember when every day I'd swim 1000s just for a warmup, and here I am struggling with swimming a simple 100 :P

I've taken lots of photos, but haven't had a chance or computer to upload them.
Soon though I'll be back up at Emerald and will be able to post more regularly more often.

And on that note I leave you with this:
SCENE: The two girls and I are outside in the backyard. I spot a kookaburra in a nearby tree.

KATE: *excited* Hey! Girls! You see that over there? There's a kookaburra in that tree!
SOPHIE: Yeah? So? It's just a kookaburra.
LARA: You're so AMERICAN, Kate.

I'm imagining that exchange in cute Aussie accents.

Heck, I still get excited to see a cardinal or bluejay!
I'll stop and watch house sparrows, even. I love birds. :)
I'd probably never stop going "OOOOOH! Kookaburra!!!"

Glad to see that it seems you're feeling a bit better, dear.
Oh! I posted knitting/crochet picks to my Flickr in case you haven't been on in a bit.

Finally, huh?
Sadly, I think my computer ate some of my photos. I can't for the life of me find some I know I had. :/ Of course, those projects were gifts and are no longer with me, too.

Re: Heh
It's true! Although I'm nowhere near hardcore enough to keep a lifelist or to actively seek them out, I LOVE to stop and watch the local birdlife. Yay parrots! Yay kingfishers!

I DID get a chance to peer through your flickr account. Your knitting is BEAUTIFUL!
Keep at it, and keep me updated!

*laughs* I would be excited to see a kookabura too! And like Leona, I'm still excited to see ~any~ birds nearby. ^.^

Yeah, especially when the local birds here are so beautiful. I'm completely enamored with parrots and kookaburras; I'll never get tired of watching them, even if it does make me "American!"

That quote is so true! As long as there are birds (and other critters) willing to pose for my camera, I'll always be excited to see them!

Moving went well enough, I managed to condense all my crap down to a couple of bags, so it just took one carload to get everything out.
Phew! I even have tentative arrangements towards getting it all up here to Emerald as well, so at least at the moment. Everything seems to be in some sort of order.

*hugs and hugs and hugs*
