Busy Tuesday


Photos curtesy of Kate today of the planting that was happening when she arrived home from school. I planted corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, purple beans, lettuce, more parsley and mint, rosemary. Keeping them safe from the chickens will prove to be a challenge, but I will try.
The chickens have started to pick up the laying pace, it's nice to have more than one or two in the fridge again. Gordon, as always, featured in more than one photo today.

The end of the day

It was a rather hot day here today. I worked. I sweated. I came home early. I took Kate to tap dancing while Phil cooked a yummy dinner. The kids hardly ate a thing. Kate worked on her humanities assignment. Ella stood on her head. I headed outside at the end of the day and took a few snaps. Kate played with her camera she bought yesterday.

I was pleased to see our first sunflower plant pop up. I hope this isn't the only one, I'm hopeful there are more.

Yesterday I repotted the red geranium into this blue pot. It was originally in a hanging basket on the chicken coop, but strong winds blew it down and it broke.

I love looking at the ever changing sky at dusk! It always makes for a pretty picture.

We always have company when we go out the back. Or front for that matter.

The roses have struggled in the heat this summer. I refuse to use any more water on them. If they are tough enough, they will survive. They are not dead yet, just not alot of blooms.

The shutters are letting in the last bit of daylight. Darkness was not far away after this picture was taken.

Kate joined in too :)

Happy Birthday Amie!

Amie and the kids came up for lunch today to celebrate Amies birthday yesterday. Presents were exchanged (Ellas birthday was last Monday) and we enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast, followed by cake. Kate didn't feel like her photo taken today! :)

Another Birthday Girl

Today our 'big' girl is 26 years old!!! How can that be? Where did those years go? Unfortunately we have to wait until tomorrow to see her.

Keeping Cool ...

We finally bought three new air conditioners, and they were installed today! The old one in the lounge room had done its day, so when we went to get another one, we also got one for our room and one for Ella!
