Shelling Peas

The trip to visit Liv's pen pal, Aunt Sherry, proved to be eventful & filled with firsts.
#1 We took Liv saddle shopping and she was more interested in a TOP. She's apparently never seen one of these old, metal spinners. #2Later that evening we walked the perimeter and she (and Dottie the dog) went for an ankle-deep dip in the creek. "How does it feel to squish mud between your toes?" Weird.
#3Today, we shelled a bucketful of peas. It was fun at first, she thought, but soon pittered out.
We had a fun, relaxing trip! Lots of firsts and yummy, fresh food.

Boys Will Be Boys

Andrew figured he'd motivate Trey by doing his back flip first. LOL

Cranky Gardener

On Saturday morn, H & I got an early start, trying to beat the TX heat. Fail. I think the heat, plus hard work put me in such a foul mood. I even asked H how he could stand me?! He said I'm worth it, but if I don't improve, I can't work with him anymore :)
My job was basically to walk back & forth to the garage to get tools. We repurposed some old wood behind the barn to make the frame. 4x4. We are starting small & practicing for next Spring.
Note to self (& good excuse for new shoes): wear work boots!! While foraging for boards, two nails went thru my flip flops and luckily not thru the skin. I know, dumb. H didn't even need to say he told me so...
Eventually, with sweat in my eyes, we completed this small task & visions of late summer harvest danced in my head.
