A moment when everyone was getting along nicely!
Charlie is thrilled about his candy DNA he made in summer school. I had to take this photo for Aunt Danna who is studying Bio-Chemistry at UW-Madison.
Charlie celebrated his 9th birthday.
We biked to Big Falls this summer for the first time. Round trip was 16.5 miles.
We went to the Sweet Shoppe for some games and ice cream.
Charlie’s new hair cut – trim at the beauty solon.
Then a buzz cut from Papa:
This hen has always acted “broody” so I decided to give it a try to let her hatch some eggs. I expect chicks any day.
Nola Mae loves to come to the chicken coop with me. She has figured out how to climb so she can collect eggs.
My garden is doing well:
Garlic crop was a success. I am not sure how many pounds I grew this year.
I was able to recruit some helpers for the peeling and trimming jobs.
We got a lot of rain this month. I didn’t get out to the garden to pick my green beans for a few days. I was surprised with an 11.5 inch long green bean.
We found this cute frog in my purple cone flowers.
I have lots of corn in the freezer, about 120 cups.
I did some dyeing this month, check out my post Dye Projects – August.
These dyed items found new homes this month:
Granny visited us for Charlie’s birthday. Nola Mae put her glasses on.
Napping Nola Mae.
A common scene at our house.
I made a new soap this month:
Tea tree and lavender essential oils with ground Calendula flowers.
My very popular soap:
Orange and cinnamon, swirled this time.
Playing on the sinking canoe is always a lot of fun!
I made this wrap for someone, 100% linen, color is honeysuckle and beautiful!
I had to try it out!
