Surprising Sweater

I can't believe I ever complained about it being a little too hot and dry back in July. Summer now seems to be on holiday and it is 55 degrees and rainy here in merry old England. After walking home from church in the elements, Crystal fixed a "comfort food" lunch and we decided to family-snuggle on the sofa and watch a movie. Being the vigilent mummy, Crystal called to me to get Ellie's sweater for her. "The wool one on the coat hook?" "No, the stripey one. I hung it on the kitchen chair." I paused for a moment to finish checking my email and Crystal called back, "Did you give it to her???" Seems Miss Ellie knows perfectly well what's what and had ambled over to the kitchen to fetch it for herself.

What else does she understand that we're talking about?

(And no, smoothies are not antithetical to chilly Sunday afternoons, though the English would probably be drinking tea!)

Cutie patootie! Can't believe those long locks!! And let me say that for 55 degrees and rainy it is just so unfair that those little cheeks are so effortlessly tanned. All that sandbox action paid off...

55 and rainy sounds fantastic right now. St. Louis is stuck in a heat rut, (although the last two days have been slightly better). I spent 6 months in Edinburgh recently (Dec to May) and I miss that dreary dampness.
