our afternoon

'A' took this one of 'H'. I took the rest.

I wish I could capture the afternoon filtered sunlight that falls along our tree line with my camera. This is the best I could do today. It's peaceful, and if you lay down in it, it induces sleepiness. For grown-ups, anyway.

Today we added some flair to 'A's collection case. It was a gift from a boy and was originally used to house matchbox cars. Now it's used to store all things glittery and shiny, like shiny rocks, marbles, hair clips, shiny beads, and more. Things that 'A' finds around the house, things we don't use, things that are shiny (all her words).

The rest of the afternoon was spent playing, playing, playing...

I like Thursdays because we start the day off (well, 9:30 is starting the day for us) at the gym (for my rowing workout) and wrap it up with swimming lessons for the girls. Then it's time to head home for lunch, and I always find myself pleased to realize that my workout for the day is done! Usually I find time for exercise just before dinner, so a morning workout is a treat.
