Socks & Boots
Saturday was the last West End Farmer’s Market of the year but all we got was breakfast from Pig on the Street before heading out to run errands. Taylor needed a new pair of boots as his not-even-that-old Doc Martens were literally disintegrating off his feet. I have to say the quality of Docs is atrocious now. I used to have a pair when I was like 18 or 19 that I got secondhand in great condition that I wore for years before giving away to a friend, still in decent shape.
I was on a search for some boot socks for Gwen. Her rainboots are a little big and tend to slip off too easily when worn with just her regular socks so I needed something thicker. I wanted the classic wool socks look (because I am an ass) and I was able to find exactly what I wanted at Roots. I also got her an A M A Z I N G hat? hood? cowl? that I will debut at a later date.
I took A LOT of pictures of the lagoon.
When I was going through my pictures I was like “why did I take this there’s nothing here-oh!”
Cute but scary and also sad because it’s obvious people have been feeding them.
This tree had ferns growing up almost every branch.
Blue sky to the south…

The Kuffle Kerfuffle
Sunday was sort-of sunny so I really wanted to go down to the park for what might be one of the last non-rainy days of the year (although it’s been pretty dry all year so who knows). On the way we stopped at Breka for muffins and kuffles. The kuffles were for Gwen and she was a big fan; every time we took her out of the stroller we had to brush massive quantities of kuffle crumbs off all of us.
I had hoped to actually walk in the woods with Gwen but she is a toddler with her own mind and she had different ideas, like pushing the stroller into the trees and running full-tilt in the opposite direction to where we were going. After a while we bribed her with another kuffle to get back in the stroller because otherwise we’d probably still be there.
