Here are the last few pictures I wanted to share from August. I’m getting close to caught up!
We’ve had rain a couple of times. We’re still desperately dry, but since the weather is cool the little bit of rain we’ve gotten has been able to soak in and make the grass grow a bit. The ducks were delighted this particular morning to have water to play in!
I started peppers the first week or so of August. I planted the seeds in potting soil in this ice cream container, and put it, with a tight lid on, above the hot water heater. The peppers came up incredibly fast—I think this picture was taken after only a week!
I liked this picture of Mr. Imagination peeking into Esther’s room (just before she moved back out to the sleepout).
Mr. Handyman and Mr. Inventor have been tilling the garden. The ducks love the freshly tilled soil—they must be finding worms.
Mr. Handyman brought this skink in to show us. I believe this is about lifesize on my computer screen.
A goose nest. I hear that there are now two geese sitting on it simultaneously. We’ll see if anything hatches!
Gayle frequently brings home a load of compost from work for the garden. This time, he took Little Miss out to supervise the unloading from her Bumbo. Mr. Handyman was helping unload, and Mr. Sweetie is watching.
