Saturday Snapshots

July 12, 2008 @ 8:44 am | Filed under: ,

Gosh it’s nice to have my big girls back.

They were so excited to see that our pumpkin turned orange while they were gone.

And that I didn’t totally kill the flowers, even if the nasturtiums did get a little crisped while my waterers were away.

However, Rilla has strong opinions about who owns Beanie’s baby now. Possession is nine-tenths of the law and all that.

Ditto Rose’s umbrella.

Perhaps if she moves fast enough, Rose won’t notice she’s got it.

Hiding is another good tactic. What umbrella? Nobody here but us…um…mushrooms. Yeah.

    This one sprang up in our compost heap. I’d dumped our jack-o-lantern there. It’s taking over that corner of the yard now! 🙂

    Yesterday we planted some pole beans next to the pumpkin patch. My friend Deirdre had set me up with poles for teepees and everything. (She’s a peach.) We have poles to do at least two more teepees, but so far I’ve only managed to clear away the weeds in space for one. Here’s a pic:

    Um, by “clear the weeds” I was speaking very loosely, as the photo shows. I’ll be fighting the crabgrass around that teepee all summer. I’m a little short on stamina for digging right now… 😉

    oops, that makes it sound like your living isn’t normally tidy, which is not at all what I meant 🙁

    Hey, Mom, that’s MY umbrella– or at least, it was. Arrgh. Think it’s time to get me a new umbrella?

    Please tell Beanie that if she needs some sort of proof of ownership of the doll, her godmother is willing to sign an affidavit on her behalf.

    Rilla will stipulate that such a document is irrelevant since she cannot yet read.
