Sebastien found the best spot in the house the other
morning to enjoy the sun.
He loves to lay in the sun.  He will follow it around the house
just to soak up all that warm goodness.
I love his little face reflecting in the window.
I could use some rest like this.
I am not feeling too good right now.
I am functioning, but I am nauseas all the time,
especially after I eat.  I am really
starting to feel the effects of this chemo cream I have
to put on my face.  I can't see anything yet, but I can sure feel it.
I must try and fit some naps into my day!
Never easy while the kids are home.
Especially during the holidays!

Wednesday afternoon was a good one!
Goose and I joined some friends for the final dress rehearsal of
Puccini's Tosca.
It was amazing!  I loved it.  This was our 4th opera together and
Goose said it was by far her favorite.
During the intermission there were cookies waiting for us and they left the curtain up
so we could watch the set change.
It was very interesting.  So many people working to
put it all together.  And so much larger than I realized backstage.
The San Francisco War Memorial Opera House is gorgeous!!
It takes us 15 minutes to get there from our house!
If there is no traffic, of course.
I am learning to really love the opera.
After seeing The Capulets and The Montagues in September
I was hooked.  The two women who played Romeo and Juliet
were absolutely amazing!!!!!
Don't forget about my Giveaway!!
Deadline to leave a comment is tomorrow night!
Have a great weekend!

Have you ever heard of antibubbles?
I had not until last week when Binky came home from
science class and was talking about bubbles.
An antibubble is a bubble underwater.  So it is water surrounded
by a thin layer of air, which is surrounded by water.
A little confusing, I know.
I have a link below that explains it with diagrams.
He also practiced blowing bubbles inside of bubbles.
Both Goose and Binky had fun with this.
At one point, they could blow 4 bubbles inside of each other!
I was amazed at how much fun they both had blowing bubbles all weekend.
And whenever a friend or family member came over they had to show
them how to do it!

Binky's teacher talked about antibubbles a little bit, but didn't
really get into it, so I found a great website that
explains what they are and how to make them!
Of course, we had to try and make our own.
It does take patience, but the results are worth it!
I also found this great youtube video.
We have to try this next!
And I thought we were long past bubble play!
Have a great week!
