MONDAY PHOTO A WEEK - 31s and Zilch

On Sunday, Brad, Aaron, and I went over to Mum and Dad's place. I had organised for them to come here initially but Sunday morning was muggy and hot so, as Mum and Dad have air-conditioning, we didn't need any convincing to change plans. I took all the salad fixings over there and Mum helped too. We had a lovely salad lunch which was just perfect considering the hot day.

During the afternoon, we played Zilch (a dice game) and 31s (a card game) and Mum was the winner on both counts.

My Mum - the Winner

Mum and Brad were in the final 31s showdown

Dad's help still wasn't enough for Brad to win the showdown

Mum and Dad's cockatiel - Charlie

Isn't he gorgeous?

We all had a lovely time at Mum and Dad's.....though, come Sunday night, it was a different story. Poor Aaron came down with a virus and was up all night vomiting. Naturally, that meant I was up all night too. He is doing a little better today.......and at least the vomiting has stopped.

Btw, did you catch the great giveaway on Michelle's blog? Michelle is hosting a giveaway for another artist who does such gorgeous work. If you haven't already checked it out, it is definitely worth a look-see and it's not too late to go into the draw. The winner will be chosen on December 17th. was YOUR weekend?

Love, light and peace
