‘Round here these days…..

Lots of rhubarb being eaten fresh by the kids, chopped for the freezer and…..

….being baked into yumminess!

Chamomile is shooting up everywhere! 

So I picked a whole bunch, laid it out ona baking sheet and put it in the truck.  Sound strange?  Actually, it works great to dehydrate them so I didn’t need to turn my oven on on a 90 degree day!

I took all those dried flowers and poured olive oil over them.  They’ll sit for 4 weeks or so to make a lovely infusion.  It will work great for dry and irritated skin…..John has such sensitive skin that I don’t really feel comfortable putting lotion on him.

We had our slate tile for the bathroom and kitchen delivered to the new house today….

….and it started raining a few minutes later.  Eli and I carried all 2,000 pounds of this tile inside, box by box, in about 15 minutes!

Isn’t it beautiful???

And innovation:  John was frustrated at always needing help to ride his tricycle while Summer would race laps around the basement.  Enter Grandpa Wally with a great idea!  Wooden “extenders” so he can get his feet on the pedals!  (Is this why he came to me this morning and said he had a secret to whisper in my ear: *I love Grandpa Wally!*?  I think it’s one of many reasons!)

And last but not least, PEAS!  (Almost!)
