an aquamarine thursday and an impending arrival

doyle... wake up we've got to wrestle over this weeks colour... it's aquamarine... WTD... 
oh mollie lets just flag this week... 
it's far too tricky, i mean is it aqua? is it green, is it blue? and what's the marine bit about for crying out loud...
nah doyle we can't flag it, if b can pull one out of the hat for aquamarine so can we...
what on earth?... she's way wrong, that's not an aquamarine crafty square, see its got orange in it!
this ones more like it... well sort of...
ah but doyle, she calls this her doctor seuss square cos its like a gold fish in a bowl arf arf arf
i'll tell you something else that will rock your paws...
NO!
oh dear, did you really hear her say that?
yep i heard her say she could be finished with the blankie soon but she likes doing it so much shes going to make it bigger... king size maybe!
she's nuts... hey doyle something else i've found to prove b & c are rather crazy...
doyle mate, get your big bot up...
and follow me ...
sheesh, so she's gonna make it bigger eh... i think she just can't be bothered putting it all together!
see... b & c have started feeding the blackbirds our foodibles...
cos the blackbirds have gone and built a multi-storey nest in our strawberry guava tree...
they reckon they are the babies from last years nest and their parents used to steal our food so they've got a taste for it...
the nest that got wrecked in the storm moll?
yep, those birds just went and built another one on top... how cool is that, but what's this got to do with aquamarine?
well their eggs are aquamarine and dont panic doyle, c didn't bungy jump from a helicopter to take this pic, b just stole it off the net, naughty...
come to think of it our deck railing could be said to be aquamarine... no?
well on the subject of flying things...
mollie's prize from molly & inky must be still winging its way across vast stretches of aquamarine waters...

cos it hasn't reached here yet...
no probs, i'm a big girl, i can wait... sigh!

next week blue's coloured thursday is bristol blue... blimey!

Hey there Doyle and Mollie...
Maxmom said I can visit you today!
I thought that was a BLUE colour...and now you say it's 'acqua...water...fishy...something? I like the colour though and you guys looks so happy playing with each other.
Can I come and play with you? Can I help you steal bird's eggs perhaps?...And those birds?...I'm a retriever, remember!

OK, I found photo #4 a bit confusing as there were no telltale eyes or teeth to orient my easily confused self. But I liked spying on the bird eggs. Hehehe.

Great post; the bird's eggs surprised me and they surely are aquamarine!

Knew b would have an Aqua square or too to help you pups out.

The climax with eggs was neat.
