{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} August 28


Skoshi A received a dragon kite for her birthday--following the theme All Things Hobbit ;) She was able to get it airborne for a few moments last evening in the breeze and I snapped a few shots.  This one was by far my favorite, capturing a cool sun flare against the lovely Utah sky, and of course my pretty girl ;)


This will be the first year we will actually save money having a garden.  It has done extremely well.  I spent last Saturday processing ripe veggies, including canning 8 pints of pickled jalapeƱos.  We've harvested zucchini, green beans, peas, asparagus, several varieties of lettuces, and cucumbers.  Our harvest, along with the generous gifts of swiss chard and kale from our neighbor, mean I haven't had to buy a vegetable in over a month.

Wingnut is more of a pie guy than a cake guy.  I made one of his favorites for his birthday yesterday--Dutch Apple Pie. Yum!


Lil' Lamb has become more cooperative of late for photographs.  This week, however, he was full of energy and could not stay still.  I still love this shot of him and laughed to see the flower petal clinging to his cheek from his roll in the flower bed.


Bad Bard isn't much better about having her photograph taken.  She is a bundle of energy and rarely stays still long enough to stay within my frame.  This was the best shot I got of her funny little face.  It doesn't show her true personality all that well.

I'll take a pint and a slice. Over-night shipping should get it here o.k. :)
May I suggest that Bad Bard is having psychological problems because of her masculine name. She's obviously lashing out with this behavior because of identity problems. How's Bad Bardoe?

Happy B-day to Wingnut again. I enjoyed talking to him.
