Still here with the turkeys

Hello, gentle reader!image

Unlike some lucky folks (I’m looking at you, Kate),  I am not yet on summer vacation. Which means I am tending to the needs of 13 ducks, two geese, four turkeys, nine chickens, two dogs, a pond full of fish, the kids (who are involved in 9 million activities and constantly needing to be picked up from horseback riding lessons or driven to swim practice or taken to drivers ed – thank goodness for that last one!), 50+ kids on my caseload at work….well, you get the picture!image

The ducks helpfully ate my entire garden, so I haven’t had to do any weeding or watering of that, but due to the little drought we are having in Michigan, I have been hauling water to all the trees I planted this spring: 100 new Douglas fir trees, 25 baby sugar maples, a cherry tree, two almond trees, many blueberry bushes, a serviceberry tree, etc. etc. etc.

So I cannot yet return to blogging. But I can post gratuitous cute pictures of our future Thanksgiving dinner!

Hope you have all been well.

  1. You were missed. At a guess, the animals need less of your time than running the kids around.
    Speaking of running around, remind me to stay away from town.

        If it gets to be too much, I can go swimming. It is good to hear from you. I thought you gone forever. That was a sad thought.

        I love Fall weather, my favorite time to go for long walks. I am doing okay, some days better than others. Losing someone is never easy. Enjoy swimming this Summer.

        That does sound familiar. Think of me when you go swimming and I’ll do as much for you. Stay cool.

  2. OMG, I haven’t even done hair and makeup today! Look away, I’m hideous 🙂

    Now I recall our schedules are a week apart. Much strength for the final push!
