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!
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.
