Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, October 07, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Loving that my Dad won the Over 60's division in the Festival of Surfing at Waipu Cove last weekend (awesome photo thanks to Mike Cunningham)...

Loving this from Pinterest...
Loving the "Bear Grylls" mania going on at our place at the moment.  Symon and the boys cooked up some slaters (wood lice) to eat the other night while I was out (eeewwww), so I decided to be a crazy cool mum and let them light their home made torches on fire while Symon was out.  I only slightly freaked out when hot ash started blowing into my washing on the line...

Loving crazy skype photos...

Although this photo looks a little strange, I really do love the way Boo sits up and itches her leg and tummy using her front paw.  Seriously, I have never ever seen another dog do this.  She is super clever!!  p.s. she asked you all not to laugh at her belly.

Loving making another delicious icecream cake (with caramel sauce)!!

Loving the hard working men in my family... my nephew in his chef whites and Poppa in his high vis gears (haha)...
