Where I Change Things Up a Bit and Speak of Nails, a Toddler and Being Canadian...

So.... In other words.... Exactly the same things I always show you....
Just a little bit different.

I got to do the nails of a very beautiful bride this past month. She chose nail polish over her manicured natural nails. LOVE this colour! We were able to match her dress exactly!

Broke my glasses...

Glamorous prom nails with opaque nude extensions and gold leaf fluttered over the tips.

Beastie discovered the joy of a good heritage tomato. She got into these ones that were pegged for some home made tomato soup. She snaggletoothed through three! Kept spraying me with the word "JUICY!". 

Momma Beast came home with this surprise. I'm still speechless. I think I muttered. "You silly thing..." at her. But I'm pretty choked up that she's matched me.

We had a wonderful Canada day! Even if the weather did everything it could to dampen our mood. It poured BUCKETS!!! But it was warm and we were all in good spirits. Took this shot seconds before it started drowning us all. There were hundreds and hundreds of folks all turned out in red and white, sharing food and laughs. We had cupcakes and dances and played in the new park with an uncountable number of friends. When we got home all of our fingers and toes were wrinkled and pruney from the wet, but we were laughing. Really lovely day!

Beastie has a voracious apatite for anything bitter, sour or spicy right now. She's been smitten with the dandelion greens in the lawn. Who needs a weedwacker? 

She also likes the pretty white lawn clover. tried to pick me all of them....

Our train brought our Mercy home for a quick visit. I miss her so much all of the time. She's not very far, just a few hours by train. I think it's about time we take our turn and visit her. That'll be exciting.  Trip to the big city......

Momma beast had her hair made all magical purple unicorn. It's almost holographic. So pretty!
Our hair girl is a wizard. 
Well, better get to it!
This house work isn't going to do itself.
Come on then..... Give me a nudge.
