Project 365 Week 29

Project 365: Take a photo a day and see your life in a whole new way.

7/18/11 (Monday) –  A very hot day!  The house was the place to be and it was quiet. This is what I found…

Check out “Heart-Attack Henry” for exciting photos of Henry standing on the edge telling me he was going to jump. 

7/20/11 (Wednesday) –  The boys had a friend over on one of the hottest days.  They played kickball.  The raft was second base and filled with water and third base had the sprinkler on.  I sat in the shade (dripping in sweat) taking pictures and did some sewing.

Robbie had a b-day party to go to and I made this pillow case for the gift.  Pillow cases are so easy and a great gift for kids that have all the toys in the world (and all the toys in our price range are junk)!

7/23/11 (Saturday) – It has been so hot we have been camping out in the living room all week!

7/24/11 (Sunday) – For over a year the two older boys have wanted to sell lemonade at the end of our driveway.  I have been telling them for over a year, “That would be fun!  But no one will stop because they are going too fast on our road.”

Finally, I let them go through with their plan to learn for themselves.    They could only find frozen apple juice in the freezer.

The highlight of my weekend was harvesting my garlic.  I had great helpers.

 Robbie handed Henry the garlic.  Henry would say, “Thank you much!” and put them in the bucket.

I am not sure how many bulbs of garlic I have.  If my memory is correct I planted 176 cloves last September.  Once I get them all laid out to dry I will count them.

  1. I have about 6 yards of that exact John Deere fabric! Maybe I will make some pillow cases with my fabric, I’ve only had it for about 10 years now! Wow, what a garlic harvest. Awesome…

  2. From my friend Ed @ work: Do you kids have a permit for that stand!! From your Dad: You need a sign down the road saying ‘Ice cold apple juice at the top of the hill’. From Donna: Put some shoues on that boy! From me: Did they have any customers?

    • Those boys don’t need any ideas from my Dad, thank you very much!

      No customers.

      Henry falls flat on his face if he wears shoes. I tried having him wear shoes for the first part of the summer. He can climb anything like it’s nobody’s business but the boy can run with shoes on. I should try again since cold weather is coming soon.

I would love to hear what you think, please feel free to leave a comment.
