Sunday in the garden

Weeding...weeding...and more weeding.
That is what we did. Princess woke up
to find us out in the garden working away.
She got dressed and joined us. It was nice to have her to climb
over the squash and under the tomatoes to pick the ripening ones.
I found some interesting fungi growing under the weeds between our garden plot and our neighbors.
At one point I looked up to find the butterfly bush I was weeding under, was covered in several
of these.
We finished up for the day as a very gentle rain started to fall.
It rained all day. We hung out reading, watching television and playing
UNO. Cleaned the crabitats and took care of the kitties and napped.
I was very glad that I got the work out of the way,
stopped me from feeling guilty about lazing around all afternoon.
Early to bed and this morning it poured.
We are planning on getting some baking done today, it is still pretty cool
weather wise, so we'll take advantage of it.

Your Sunday sounds and looks idyllic. We have a purple butterfly bush too, and I like to watch for the hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
