Aaah, the afternoon with sunshine. How I'm loving it!

Spent a few hours with my Madison while Noah was in his room (I'd say sleeping, but I could hear him running around on the floorboards). Apart from the odd popping in to remind him that he should be sleeping, it was so cool to hang out with my big lad, seeing that our days at home are numbered. He starts school in three weeks!

We lazed around on the grass while I read, and while he nagged me about playing hide and seek (which we did), and then chasie (which we also did).

But what excited me the most today was finishing a book. Not only one actual book, but the sixth book in under two months. How utterly divine. I've fallen in love with books all over again, and it's just bliss. (I'm posting about the reading experience a little more later on next week if you're wondering about the books on The Pile...)

And because it's No Makeup Don't Go Anywhere But Clean The House Friday, we spent the morning culling toys and clothes (it's been a big day). So comfy clothes were a must. This top cost $12 from Target a couple of years back, and I loved it so much I bought another one in a different colour. Trust me, that's a big deal, because I'm not that kind of girl. The big batwings were perfect for breastfeeding Noah, and it was baggy enough to hide that lovely wobbly belly. Aah, the joys of motherhood!

And can you tell, I didn't even do my hair today. Yep, keeping it real.

Have you had a chance to enjoy some reading? Is it something you've rediscovered, or is it something you never get a chance to do?

Thanks for stopping by (and we'll see you again tomorrow)!
