I am so pleased that J is thoroughly enjoying her job at the Library. She tells us little stories every day about people she meets, or other things that happen. I think she will be getting paid today...first paycheck ever!
I have been working on:
-Cleaning out both sides of the chicken house
-Switching the laying hens and the pullets to opposite sides
-Weeding and clearing in the garden (we have tomatoes, cucumbers & zucchini now!)
-Pruning, weeding and composting around my ornamental trees & shrubs
-Weeding and dead-heading in my flower garden
There have been some tiny, beautiful nuggets that have made the past couple of weeks seem less like drudgery and more like a miracle.
My flower garden has been a profusion of color.
|Russian Sage, Black-Eyed Susan, Mums, Gladiolus, |
Purple Cone Flower, Queen Anne's Lace, Butterfly
Bush & Lemon Verbena
I am not the only one who has been enjoying them either...
L and I decided to add a bit more color to the propane tank by adding Lady Bugs. She did most of them by herself.
L and I loaded up the bikes and drove north to our favorite park this week. We rode the trails, played on the zip line, ate a picnic lunch, and waded in the creek.
|The small wonder here is my lovely girl...|
|...she was inside of this huge hollow tree. Last year|
it was still alive, but sadly it no longer is.
This weekend, the girls and I are taking a day trip to visit my 101 year old Grandma, who is a small wonder herself. J named her "Tiny Grandmom" when she was just a tiny tike herself. I am not looking forward to 6 hours of driving, but it will be worth it to see her again.
Finally, let me add this link. These are movie reviews done in Haiku style. I love it!
