happy mother's day



Life in the fast lane finally eased up yesterday after the band exchanges (Carl) and the school's annual theatre company production (Adam), which was Footloose this year, finished on Friday night. I slept for over 10 hours last night! This morning, Greg and I got up long before the boys (they're teenagers after all) and took the dog and canoe down to Deas Slough where we discovered this lovely Mother's Day sight from the water: a pair of nesting eagles.

Paula: I tried to make a favicon but only got a highly pixellated version. Will try with a different size maybe...?
