Day 257, August 4, 2013: The tomatoes are ripening very quickly now. Yea!!
Day 258: Our dragon for the VBS skits. It needs to be painted yet, but it’s almost ready
Day 259: Greg’s chickens are all washed and ready for the fair
Day 260: Greg won Poultry Showmanship, again 🙂
Day 261: Janelle and Blizzard were almost unbeatable at the dog show. Blizzard was reserve grand champion.
Day 262: The finished dragon head.
Day 263: Princesses in pajamas. Final practice for the VBS skits
Day 201: One of our many cows. This one doesn’t have a name.
Day 202: This little kitten is getting a new home. She (or he, I’m not sure which), went home with Josh tonight. But, no worries. We have many more. 2 cats have had kittens and there’s at least one more pregnant.
Day 203: VBS skit practice.
Day 204: Tonight’s dinner–steak, fresh lettuce from our garden and roasted asparagus
Day 205: More rain. We’ve had way too much this spring.
Day 206: Fresh lettuce, straight from our garden.
Day 207: Blizzard is showing us just how long the lawn is. Our mower broke, and we’re waiting for parts. With all the rain we’ve had, the grass is very long.
Day 208: Janelle’s dance group from church danced in the park at an annual event called “God of the City”, put on by local churches.
Day 209: Yes, we have eggs. Greg’s chickens have been very prolific layers lately.
Day 210: A strong storm blew through tonight. The windows were open when the wind very suddenly started blowing really hard. While I was rushing around closing windows, the door to our bedroom slammed shut due to the wind. It slammed so hard, the frame actually broke.
Day 211: Blizzard loves doing the teeter totter at dog obedience.
Day 212: For our anniversary, we went for the day to several different places. One of them was to Covered Bridge Park in Cedarburg. This is the last covered bridge in Wisconsin.
Day 213: Baby bunnies! There are 3 of them in that pile of fur.
Day 188, May 24: One of Janelle’s rabbits is so calm, it will lie on it’s back while Janelle is practicing with it for 4-H showmanship.
Day 189: The potatoes are growing nicely in the garden. The problem is, so are the weeds. Time to get out there and get some weeding done, if it stops raining long enough.
Day 190: Blizzard is pouting. His girl, Janelle, is spending the night at a friend’s house and he feels abandoned.
Day 191: Memorial Day nails
Day 192: Janelle is demonstrating how to do rabbit showmanship at a 4-H meeting.
Day 193: Another 4-H meeting. This one is dog obedience. It’s hard to get a decent picture. If I get too close, Blizzard gets distracted and doesn’t do what he’s supposed to.
