May was a busy month–but not many photos! Here are the ones I have to share.
I was sitting here at my desk one rainy day (it rained the entire month of May) and glanced out the window to my right. There were two wekas walking around in the drainage ditch!
This was a Sunday afternoon that we spent at home. A friend came for lunch and played a game with the children. It happened to be Simon’s weekend off, so he was here, too.
This was the most exciting thing that happened in May. We hatched some eggs in our incubator! We started with 36 eggs, but threw away 21 after a week and a half because they were duds. We ended up with 9 babies. So exciting to have some success!
Our jalapeno plants in the greenhouse, did very well this year. There were so many that I decided to try pickling them. I thought this bowlful of sliced peppers was so pretty!
The final product is pretty, too. I used a few slices in a soup I made for church today, and they flavored it very nicely. The boys like to add these to hamburger sandwiches or tacos.
We often see James sleeping in odd places when we finish family prayers in the evening. He goes hard all day, and then sleeps hard at night.
