In between the rain drops...

Anna and the boys have been busy fishing when ever they get a chance which seems to end up being after the thunderstorms roll through. They have caught lots of fish but we have not been clear on the identity of them. They may be bass or perch we will have to bring a field guide with us to be sure.

I am still a little paranoid about an alligator making its way into the lake the property is mostly fenced in but a canal is nearby and I need to remind the boys not to hang so close to the edge. It is hard for me to know if I am being silly and overly cautious I really do not like to micro manage them. I love Charlotte Masons philosophy of play, but sometimes I just want to twirl them in bubble wrap and tape it up. I will say though my hesitation of wild animals is only because I have been chased by quite a few including a rather large bull moose when we lived in Alaska, and we have run into a few large gators while hiking and biking in the everglades.



I have to giggle my husband is working from home today and I usually have the classical music playing on in the background. But instead my husband has some old Godzilla movie on and is playing the music in that very loud and telling the kids now listen to this music kids. hehehehe!! Oh how opposites attract lol!
I have been enjoying the international treasures Adrian brought back for me from his trip. I dug into the beautiful Japanese linen he brought home and made my favorite the circle skirt.


....and also enjoying tea out of the new teapot he gave to me from South Korea. The nice thing about this teapot is that it has a built in filter for loose tea which I have not had in a long time....but look forward to enjoying soon. Well the rain is about to start again and I think I will grab the children, some pumpkin cake and a nice cup of hot tea. Hope you have a blessed day!

  1. Oh, what a beautiful teapot! And the Japanese linen looks nice and light.

    I would be scared of alligators, too; I would be saying lots of prayers for protection every day!

    I'm glad your husband was home for the day. It's a whole different ballgame when they're home, isn't?



  2. Greetings,

    Wow, what a great blessing and awesome gift to be able to take a piece of fabric and make anything you want with it. The skirt looks very nice and summery... great for being in Miami. The teapot is quite lovely... pumpkin cake and hot tea sounds wonderful. Enjoy being together.

  3. Oh my Mrs. Watts, the teapot is beautiful! so is the skirt and your background in your blog :)

    Boy, I sure do remember those Miami canals...they sometimes may surprise you and an alligator does make an appearance.
