tuesdays for tea 09.02.24


I’ve decided Tuesday am’s are a good time to sit and reflect on… well, anything, over a cup of tea.
Coincidentally, it will also be a good time for the boys to sit and enjoy a morning movie of their choice.
I love win-win’s.

Ahhh, tea, a laptop and some P+Q (peace + quiet).
This morning I’m thinking over a cup of earl grey topped with 1/4c of steamed (skim) milk and 2 squirts of vanilla. MMmmmm.

And I’m thinking I’m still too friggin’ tired to have thoughts.

I’m thinking I need a “Boo’s gotta be sleeping through the night by this time” countdown. With a marvelous spa trip to celebrate sanity after 2.75 yrs (and counting) of sleepless nights and cranky days. Of course, every 3 months we think the end of waking up at 3am is almost over… We’re suckers.

I’m thinking I enjoy writing AND being creative, and can’t wait to set up my new (more design-flexible) blog on my new domain. I’d tell you all what it is, but it might take me an entire year to get it going and I’d hate to lead you on.

I’m also thinking it’s high time I committed to looking decent (regardless of dark circles and massive bags under my eyes from aformentioned sleeplessness) and started coloring/trimming my hair.

More (comprehendible) thoughts next Tuesday.

Cellphone Photography

WHAT did our parents and grandparents generations do without CAMERAS IN THEIR CELLPHONES!?!
I can’t imagine.

Every one of these memories would have been missed by Hubby – and for me soon forgotten – had it not been for the ability to whip out a cell phone when there was not a camera in sight. Although I’m sure some we could all have done without…

pic-0020(Boo’s first very own ice cream cone… This has been in my phone a-while!)

pic-0118(The girls spontaneously gave Tt his bday present early and I had NO TIME to grab my camera! It’s fuzzy, but it’s was a “quick or it’s over” kinda moment.)

pic-0109(It’s a Common Marmoset, if you must know. It was the closest I’d seen him to the glass. I amuse easily.)

pic-0099(There are days when you look at your 4.8 yr old and realize his lazy-ass teen years are coming all too quickly…)

pic-0006(Kid #2 having a “happy moment” with her brand new shoes… OH, I know the feeling, girl!)

pic-0019(LOVE this shot! It was a quick, spontaneous moment, but these two are just each others Ying + Yang. A great weekend away memory.)

pic-0015(Boo practicing his “kissing” with a hotel mirror. Don’t get me started on the germs. Or his open-mouthed approach. Watch out, girls…)

pic-0033(Another precious Boo moment – he fell asleep in his food. I think I was just too lazy to grab the camera on this one… I was probably downing my mid-day latte at the time…)


(One day I’ll write an entire post on what was up with this pic. One day. Not today.) (Wow, even in the dark you can see how tired I am!)


Ok, can we really give them such an honorable tag as “Photography” when they’re quick, fuzzy grabs at only 2 mp?
Maybe I should just call them “Memory Shots”. Or “my-cameras-too-huge-to-take-with-me-all-the-time” shots. Either way. I’m easy.
