Eves-dropping…a mother’s prerogative: looking through my window and second to last August break shot: its all right here

P8290037

I have shared in the past how I love the fact that our master bedroom has a direct bird's eye view of our backyard: the kid's zone.

Yesterday, pulling back white linen eyelet drapes, opening my window, I heard a two-year-old and a four-year-old's conversation.

One was twirling.  Her blonde hair whipping as she happily turned clock-wise, counter-clockwise.  One had legs curled, tightly pinched, on the A-frame of an old rusty swing set, upside down.  They were role-playing: one was Elmo one was elmo's girlfriend. (what the heck??)

It made me smile.

It made me glad I did not stop at two.

Kids are a lot like joining the peace corps:  "its the toughest job you'll ever love" (tell me you remember that commercial from the '80's?).

Once I had the camera in hand, I had to pan around of course.  My lens landed on this:

Old wooden ice cream creamer turned weed gatherer.

Leaning pink fence; everything else is pink… why should one fence matter?

Over grown garden, dotted perhaps with several lanky weeds.

An old slate stone path, to my rubbish heap does lead

Cheers!
