. . . what you might find on your camera.
My daughter worked as a nanny both days this weekend. Today I made a brief stop where she was working to drop something off for her.
This sweet little girl cherub wanted a story read to her before I left so, of course, I had to oblige. I knew Chicken Mama had snapped a couple of pictures but I assumed they were with her camera.
I was surprised to find the pictures on my camera (snuck it right outa my purse, she did) when I sat down at my desk tonight.
This little babe is just shy of two years old and didn't have any hair (other than peach fuzz) until very recently. You can't see it by the pictures but the whole back of her head is now full of beautiful blond curls. I think the long wait was worth it.
Most of my weekend was spent working outside. Isn't it funny how you can work and work and work on a project and not see much of any progress for the longest time?
Today (hooray and finally) it looks as if I'm getting the raised beds under control. (Although I am having trouble ripping out that one flower bed on the left and my herb bed on the right is still going strong.) The majority of the beds are now ready for an application of compost which we'll let sit for the winter and then till in in the spring.
Have to say the soil in the raised beds is really good. The soil is FULL of earthworms. Despite my phobia regarding worms (how the heck can I be a gardener with this irrational fear?), over the years I've come to terms with earthworms. Earthworms are good. Earthworms are our friends. But I gotta say today when I was removing weeds and spading up the beds, I came across some that were so big they bordered on being classified as snakes. Now that bothers me! (Don't worry. A little more therapy and I'll be fine.)
Tomorrow's Monday again; the start of another week. Laundry day for me, but I'm also meeting a friend in town for coffee and conversation in the morning.
Then back out into the yard/garden. Although it seems as if this gorgeous, warm weather will last indefinitely, one of these mornings there will be heavy frost covering everything and finishing up outside won't be nearly so easy.
So watch out blueberry and raspberry patches, it's your turn tomorrow!
