Disparu dans la Nuit

In a rare moment of frivolty, I purchased a fish. I've never owned a fish before. They poop a lot. Didn't know that. The girls named him Charlie after their favourite youtube video. If you thought me a horribly lax parent before, there will be no doubt in your mind after watching this. I am not exactly sure why I feel that I should be censoring more of their viewing. In my defense, they have inherited their father's humour. It's unicorns. I didn't get it, but the more I hear them repeating all the lines, the more I seem to giggle. Please don't judge us. The 2nd video is even funnier. El took a tonne of pictures on the weekend. B loves to ham it up for her.
I picked up those oil pastels for some Kandinsky-inspired art. I lost B at only one square or circle - whatever that is. I think it's awesome. Next time I will try to smear the circles together a bit more. I forgot to look back at the inspiration picture before I went ahead. I still like it though.
And rather than finish a pair of socks, I started the Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery with my Handmaiden Mini Maiden merino and silk wool. I love the feel of this yarn, and I am starting to get a hang of the 24-row pattern despite my incessant whining about the double yarn-overs and ssk's.

Must go. B says she can't see the fish. I kind of forgot we had a cat when I was out impulse shopping. I'm sure it's nothing.

Is Charlie in fish heaven & is the cat smiling & licking it's lips - do cats have lips???

Beautiful scarf, Nadine! I love it!

Also, your kids have good taste in youtube videos. I have loved that video since I first saw it (maybe a year ago?)

I hope Charlie is ok!

It's all good! Charlie is still swimming away. Apparently it's all about the angle you look at the bowl.

Is anyone else singing "Put a ripe banana in your ear . . . "?

OMG! Those unicorns are the best! It reinforces my love of mythical creatures.
