kate5kiwis: mystery monday

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

mystery monday

today's mystery monday paper revealed the instruction: *walk around the monmouth redoubt and walk down to mövenpick for ice creams* so we popped into town and had a wonderful windy walk around the redoubt,

stopping for a history lesson or two
and a wee surf on top of the cannon
and a very windy play up the tree.
i heard phrases like, "i'm gold leader"... "i'm silver leader" etc
and lots of gun noises and army man poses... until the littlest voice said, "i'm chilly chilly bang bang..." at which point we went off in search of ice creams... but the mövenpick shop was shut... so we settled for hot sundaes...
M5 still with his swimming goggles perched upon his brow.

We're finally getting our minivan back this week! Maybe once I have a better vehicle to drive I'll get out more, like you do. It'd probably be a lot better for all of us.

ah, twas i, moi, coming home from a wonderful weekend with hubby, the idea just flew into my mind...
so the next day the lads'n'i sat around the breakfast bar and brainstormed a whole lotta ideas and wrote them on sunshine-paper.
the rules are: *mystery monday* happens AFTER The Big Post-Weekend Clean Up, and it has exercise and food involved.... and it has to cost less than $10... and yes, it's been loads of fun!! X
