Once again, I have been mugged by spring. Not by allergies, but by the sudden influx of tasks that had sat safely and quietly on a shelf for the last 6 months. Suddenly there are lawns to be mowed, weeds to be pulled, plants to be coddled, dirt to be swept....and that's just my work for other people. Then I get to go home and do it all over again for me. Life has become one desperate race against an ever-shrinking 24 hours.
So to catch my faithful readers up quickly, I will synop-size the last month and a half into a short photo essay.....
In April I........
|Made a heavenly mansion out of a refrigerator box |
for my Sabbath School.
|Here is the finished mansion, sparkly, albeit rather....boxy.|
|I took a cleanse for my health and outrageously cheated during it,|
but I've never eaten so many fruits and veggies in my life.
And I'm a vegetarian!
|I adopted a new little stray kitten. What's one more |
in the family, anyway?
In May I..............
|Enjoyed the spring flowers.|
|Had a distemper outbreak that put 4 of my cats|
in the "isolation" ward.
|Got the coolest piece of furniture at the thrift|
store and repainted it. (This IS the
repainted version, so don't be insulting!)
|Went birthday camping at Lake Skjermo with Caleb.|
|Saw a mother fox and her two babies right next|
to this very fox den. Just before I took the picture.
Isn't that exciting?
|Planted a zillion seedlings and nurtured them.|
Why do I over-plant EVERY year?
(This photo only shows a fraction of my green extravagance.)
|Was reminded that there is some benefit to being awake to see the sun rise!|
