family time

I have been a million miles away.


Rugging up under winter gray woollen clouds,

June 2010 006 and tripping down rain-spangled garden paths,

June 2010 011crunching over frosty mornings,

 June 2010 049 June 2010 048

and playing on mirror shores,

June 2010 125

breaking bread for elegant snow-feathered friends, June 2010 156 June 2010 173

and re-uniting with our best guy after his fortnight away,

June 2010 218

  watching my favourite team play beach games at twilight,

June 2010 221admiring much my own personal gentle Sea Sprite,

June 2010 223and my very own pint sized, rainbow legged Strawberry Shortcake,

June 2010 220and my own wee, wild Nim meets Pippi Longstocking.

We frolicked, ate and were merry.

 June 2010 257 June 2010 259

Winter howled around us,

or shone its soft light

June 2010 336

and we spun memories like lace,

6 blonde grandbabies were cuddled, cards games were played

and songs from our teen years were screeched while dishes were washed.

 June 2010 297 June 2010 304 June 2010 314

Brothers, sisters, in-laws, grandparents, and babies

away from the world,

but all together for a few days.

June 2010 282


And now, I am home,

where Mt Laundry looms large.


Looking forward to catching up with all your posts :)

Amy, this stunning post took my breath away!!
Oh my; I just love the photo of Mads on the mirror beach; the photo of your favourite team at twilight - Oh I just love the whole thing.
Good luck with Mt laundry - let me know if you need a hand folding and I'll come by and bring provisions!
