August Break 2011 - Day 23

It was another gorgeous morning -  despite the fact that it started out with me stepping in cold, squishy dog crap. I calmly wiped it off and just pretended it didn't happen.
I fumbled around in the kitchen and fed the kids and then grabbed my book, coffee & camera and escaped to the veranda.
It was a lovely morning and I was feeling quite content. Not even the sound of fighting kids inside the house bothered me. I just let them do their thing. They only seem to fight in order to get my attention, so instead I'm doing the opposite - completely ignoring them. Their screaming and shrieking now falls on deaf ears. They only get attention now when they're being sweet as pie :)

The morning sky was full of these cool clouds. They looked like puffy little cotton balls.
Later on, I piled the kids into the car and we set off into the country for a little car ride and some picture taking.  
I quickly discovered that wearing flip flops and walking through ditches don't mix well. Lot's of prickly things and creepy crawlies lurking in there. Oh well - it was totally worth it :)
The country scenery was breathtaking as always. I'm having a TON of fun editing my photos and making them look extra pretty.
While standing in a ditch, I picked cattails for each of the kids and advised them not to beat each other with them.
Better post this before my computer does that blue screen of death thing again :/ Plus, I really need a snack and possibly a hot bath.
Hope you're all having a great week! <3
