It was warm. Really. I don't know why Wally is wearing a fleece.
Blue is one of her faves.
Rhianwen has been trying to include kitty cat in her imaginative play. Most of the time kitty endures patiently or perhaps lazily. It reminds me of those Victorian lacy cards that has those little cute girls with their kittens all dolled up in ribbons and doll's dresses.
Shopping at the store has been a little entertaining recently too. When we get up to the counter, Rhianwen will insist on placing whatever she has in her hands on the conveyor belt/counter...most of the time it is her half eaten box of raisins, container of cheerios, or sippy cup. If she doesn't have anything in her hands, she tries to let the conveyor belt run under her hands...yuk! Then when we are all done paying and walking out the door, Rhi will look at the cashier or anyone who is in the general vicinity and say, "Bye bye! Love you!" and blow kisses. Perhaps she's been reading How to Win Friends and Influence People. She's certainly better at it than I am :) In fact I wonder how much more effective of a friend and neighbor I would be if I would just look people straight in the eye, give them a huge smile, laugh a little, say "HI!", and wave big, just like she does regardless of whether they are a bum or a doctor...well, actually, right now I would have to say she probably likes bums better. If I did put her tactics into practice, I probably would have the psychologists called to my door, but it really has made me think that I should try to be more open and friendly like she is. Putting this into action is a whole 'nother matter. I'm way shy.
Of course we had to have some cute Sunday pictures to round out this blog.
"How dare you photograph me before my brilliant performance of Rachmaninov's Concerto No. 2?"
"Have you ever heard such nuances of emotion and virtuoso in one performance?"
Bye Bye! Love you!
