We’ve been busy with lots of summer stuff.
Pickles are made (for now), cranberry beans are fresh-frozen (great in pasta e fagioli) and tomatoes are ripening on the vine. We picked wild blackberries out at 1000 acres and Mom froze them for an up-coming galette. Did I help? No. I don’t like blackberries…I ate grass instead. Definitely more nutritious, I think. A lot of dogs do, though, and pick them off the vines themselves.
Then there was the painting of the spare bedroom that’s going to be Poppy’s room when she comes to visit. That’ll be in another week, so there will be lots to tell then!
I went to the river and a duck family swam by–can you see them out there? I think it’s good to share the river, don’t you?
Then I dug a hole.
Did you know there are definite benefits to hole-digging?
- It tones the muscles
- Relieves boredom
- Keeps me from digging at home (Mom says that’s a good one!)
- I might find ‘treasure’
- Expends some of my energy…
This is me later. Zonked on the couch.
