Tamer Adventures - on the (Zeeland) Homefront

Terrible, terrible, terrible. More than a week has gone by, and I haven't shared any of our recent "adventures" with you. I have to admit, I've been enjoying a bit of time away from the computer.

You haven't missed much, though. We took Tobi to the butterfly gardens (above) in Langeweegje and have been some cool things with Lukas. He now has a "rainy day box" full of fun (surprise) kids stuff, a "dress up box" with tons of silly orange wigs and hats (to show our support of the Dutch soccer team), a miniature guitar, finger paints, a craft box and a neat children's art book (my goal is to pick one project per week to do together). Yesterday we made an African mask from cardboard... and it's not half bad if I do say so myself. :-)

In addition, I've been riding my bike a lot, taking in as much as I can of the Zeeland summer, and baking strawberry shortcake. Oh, and then there's the nesting bit. I found my urge to "nest" slightly less extreme with the first pregnancy, but now the floors have to be clean, I hate it when the dog smells like dog, and I find myself doing the wash (or laundry) every other day.

Liz-the-writer hasn't disappeared, either. She's just very focused on one big upcoming project - understanding every aspect of one of her favourite publications "Wanderlust", well enough to be able to write for them, prior to developing her next big "pitch".

But back on the domestic front, we have a few people coming by for dinner tonight, and there is still much to be done. I'll do my best to write more tomorrow and update this posting with photos.

Hey, it may sound dull, but it's my life, and it's good.
