Catching Up

I went a whole week without posting! What's up with that? Well, here are some photos from this past week to catch you up with what's been going on here in Finlayson Country.

This morning Austin was holding Henry, and Henry fell asleep while they were just sitting there. That 'ardly ever 'appens!

That rose at the corner of the porch....It's some kind of climbing miniature rose but I cannot figure out to save my life what it's name is. But it sure is pretty.

Slowly but surely the potager begins to take shape. With the fence company chosen, I now just have to wait for them to work me into their schedule. In the meantime we are working on the beds close to the porch. Some free brick cast-offs provided the border for this bed.
In case you haven't noticed the Skip-Bo Tournament Scores in the upper left column, our family has started a perpetual Skip-Bo tournament. Here are some pictures from Wednesday's game night:

Emma and Thomas are thoroughly bored with Skip-Bo at their ages, so they opted for puzzles instead.
Austin, our resident goofball, strikes one of usual stately poses
.....made that face when he saw my cards! Mom didn't have good luck that night.

Audrey successfully avoided direct photos the whole night
Even when I tried to pretend I was only taking pictures of Henry.
More coming later...............


  1. I'm rooting for the goofball! C'mon Austin! Quit messing around and score some points! (That silly face from Bro Finlayson is a new one for me, but slightly reminiscent of someone else in the family...)

  2. Your posts are so fun. I love the perpetual skip-bo tournament and could your baby be any cuter??
