Tara’s Totem

A totem (Ojibwe doodem) is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe.

This afternoon sees daddy giving the kitchen a lick of paint and Tara and Caleb creating a totem in the garden from the packaging of the new parasol for the table on the terrace that arrived this morning.

I am again basking in the sun with Remus and Gracie snuggled at my feet. Now they are snuggling together, pushing out my feet. Now I am no longer sun bathing,

Remus and Gracie are! I am standing up photographing them in my sunbathing place! I am now photographing Tara’s Totem!

Now Thor has arrived on his bicycle. I’ve pushed Remus and Gracie off and I am sunbathing once more! I do enjoy the sun!

What is Caleb wearing? Oh dear. And yes, we have just had the ‘suffocation’ talk!
