Sometimes I look at the date I’m like “Holy mother of pearl, it’s been 47 years since I posted” and then I think of all the things I could talk about and they parade through my mind like a… parade. (BEST SIMILE EVER.) But then, when I go to write crap down, it all leaks out of my brain like a… big ol’ brain leak. (I WIN AT WRITING.) And then my head is empty. So, so empty. Empty like… like something that’s really really empty and not full or even partially full of stuff. (SOMEBODY GET THE NOBEL LIT. PRIZE COMMITTEE ON THE PHONE ASAP)

So, instead, you get paragraphs like the above that contain parentheticals of me yelling at prize committees.

Blogging’s the best!

But yeah, here I am. Blogging up a storm on this Tuesday morning. Bloggedy blog blog.



*awkward silence*

So how are you? Good? Your parents all right? You enjoying the summer weather? Weather’s fascinating, huh?



Oh, I know what I can show you!

This is a sequence of photos that just appeared one day on Lolly’s phone. Your job is to guess what it is:

Oh crimeny. Is that what I think it is??? 
Wait… what? 

Still not sure whether to be relieved or disturbed…

Okay. Make your guess now. The next one is the big reveal.

Oooooh! Okay. Tessa got the phone. 
And she is apparently fascinated by her own feet. Got it.

Did anybody get it?
In closing, here are five random tidbits about the last few weeks:
1. Lots of work.
2. Mousley family reunion in a big ol’ mansion with a pool and tennis courts and stuff in Mapleton, UT. Refreshingly drama free, I might add, and very fun. 
3. Lots of Cafe Rio.
4. Visit to the Dunford Donut factory. Of course.
5. I can’t think of a fifth thing. Which means my life is really, really boring. Also two of the previous four have to do with food. I probably need to go on more runs. 
What have you been up to this summer? Anything I (or Lolly) should make sure to do with my girls before school starts?
I love you all.
