During the eclipse on Sunday, I caught this image of a very pensive Special K. She looks like a little doll.
We had a dump truck load of composted soil delivered to our garden. One of our neighbors saw Wingnut and Special K working away at the pile. He pulled up in his step steer loader and set to work. It took him 20 minutes to spread the soil. Apparently he's a marauding neighbor and looks for opportunities to use his loader. He reminds me of a very happy boy, playing with his trucks in the dirt.
Lil' Lamb has caught the baseball bug. He's not a very good pitcher. . . or batter. . . or catcher.
We also had two dump trucks of gravel delivered. Our marauding neighbor did not volunteer to help spread the rock. Wingnut and the kids have worked for four hours so far, moving and spreading rock by hand, although they are using the wheelbarrow hooked up to the tractor. They've hardly made a dent. Our intention is to have the teenagers work away at it this weekend, but we may have to buckle down and rent one of those nifty step steer loaders from Ace Hardware.
