Slow Down, You Move Too Fast

Gotta make the morning last!

Someone tell me how I'm going to unwrap this bundle and get it off to school today.  

Hmm, it's dark in here, apologies for the blurriness. Even though tomorrow is a pupil-free day, I feel like my kid isn't getting enough down time. When we got home from school yesterday, we spent a little time in the front yard so she could work on her cartwheels. And the homework has stopped pouring in now, so her time is actually 'free'.  Summer is on it's way, only four weeks left of school. Hooray!
Poppet is doing a sailing camp for one week, a photography course for another and we have lots of lovely family coming to see us. It will most likely be hot and humid and we don't have much air conditioning so you can expect the usual grumbling from me on that front. But Ontario comes alive over the holidays, so many zoos and parks and places to explore which are only open during the warmer months. We will be busy!
Meanwhile, I'm going to find it in my heart to drag this kid into some clothes, run a brush through her hair and ship her off to school. I have some work to do!


  1. Hello Jen. I just popped over to your blog from Dover and Madden, such beautiful work Vicki does! Guess what? I have bought something from your etsy store.... Sailing lessons for the poppet, my kinda girl. I love sailing, I race my boat in Sydney fron he CYCA every week. Besides sailing, I have a passion for designing and making children's vintage inspired clothing, I do styling sork and love to potter around op shops my exra love of retro and vintage, man is it addictive. I would love to visit your part of he world. Do you get homesick of the beautiful Perth? I started following you. I do hope you pop on over and say hi! You migh enjoy reading about my fibro beach shack renovation.

    1. Hello there! I'm just heading over to your blog to have a look over my morning coffee. Everything looks so lovely.
      I agree about Vicki's work. It is impeccable and so so creative. She is constantly inspiring me.
      I've never sailed a day in my life, so am happy to give my kid a chance to try it.
      I do miss Perth, but I know from experience that Perth will be Perth so I don't need to rush back to see it yet (we have family coming here soon which is more important than any place). We are still in love with Toronto and it's surrounds and summer gives us the chance to really explore.
      Thanks for taking the time to comment, really appreciate it.
