talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Zoo trip




I realized this morning as I lay in bed and heard the trash truck rumble past that we didn't get the big limbs we cut earlier into a trash bin in time for trash pickup. Again. They're too big for us to get expeditiously to the compost site ourselves, yet I hadn't felt good enough about trashing them to get around to doing that yet. Then it hit me: our friends Paul and Heather could burn it for kindling! And... maybe they'd even want to go to the zoo with us this morning when I called them at the ridiculously early hour that this entire idea hatched in my brain!

All of the above turned out to be true, so we sneaked in a little morning zoo trip before the place closes for the season in a couple of weeks. We had a nice time and enjoyed the weather and companionship.

Love Nora's little poncho =) And the classic zoo picture on the Orangutan.

It's so wistful yet gratifying to see favorites from Fiona's little days come out again to receive a new life on our second-born-- and then probably again on some other little charmer. It's the circle... the circle of clothes...
