I have over a dozen potted plants waiting to be put in the ground. Yesterday’s thunderstorm may have broken the heat wave we’ve been in, so maybe I’ll get to them over the weekend. I have such a terrible habit of buying plants and not getting them planted right away.
I find myself looking for excuses to play with bees. Yesterday I had legitimate business with them, as we had a laying worker bee situation in the queen castle. I dealt with that, and got stung in the thigh in the process. I actually had a bee up my pants, and didn’t panic! I just told myself, “It can only sting me once, and surely there’s not more than one in there!” Had it been a cockroach scurrying around in my britches I would have been hysterical!
The girls discovered some big spools of serger thread this week and decided that they would wind smaller spools from it using a drill. Larkspur has started some sort of sewing project with the thread. I’m not sure why none of the existing small spools of thread we have worked for her. I think it must have been all about the process. Excited about them, Larkspur stuck her hand in my photo with her three little spools of drill-wound thread.
I’m headed to a homeschooling conference this morning. I’ve been planning our next year all week in anticipation of it and am the most excited I’ve been about homeschooling in quite some time (That’s actually not saying much. This was a hard year.) I sure hope the speakers are encouraging!
Happy Friday, everyone!
