And Suddenly it Was Almost Two Weeks Later!

Time flies. Very quickly.

I've been meaning to blog, but life seems to have gotten in the way. And that's probably a good thing. We've been doing lots of routine little chores, and enjoying the yields of the garden...lettuce galore (we have a "gourmet mix" of about 5 varieties), chard, strawberries (just enough to make a fresh picked snack), lots of herbs, rhubarb. The other veggies are slow, but coming along very gradually. Next year things will get a head start; I have splurged and ordered a super duper 3 tier stand & grow lights from Lee should be arriving next week!

The creatures, tall and small are all doing fine. Cody was a joyful little whirlwind for his ten days home; he and Mike are close to Winnipeg tonight. Buck's leg is coming along at a snail's pace...he and Rupert had pedicures last Monday. Jasper hovered close by and devoured all the hoof trimmings.

This afternoon I fired up the log splitter and split a large pile of last year's logs. I will stack them after work tomorrow.

I'll endeavour to be a better blogger...and will leave you tonight with a recent sunset.

Enjoy your summer! You can blog away the dark, cold winter.

There's nothing like a south Cariboo sunset!

I've been drooling over that Lee Valley light set since I was a teenager :) You're going to have so much fun using it.
