Another hot day in the summer...

So today was good! I started with going to school and applying for college! That's right! I'm officially a college applicant! Here's hoping I get in!
Then I came home and worked in the garden.. pulling weeds and stuff.. I have a fail sunburn across my lower back.. it's pretty funny.
Here's some shots of the garden..

and my squash are starting to grow little squashes.. hopefully that's what I planted.. it will really suck if these end up being the little pumpkins..

The chickens are doing well and are quite happy with all the weeds I gave them to eat today

Tisha was showing off her new Hawaii outfit that she got from her gramma and grampa yesterday

and some freakishly adorable pics of Puss crashed out in my bed with me..

and I think it's funny how Tisha treats this kitten like a baby.. apparently the cat likes it.. won't sit still for anyone else and gets jealous when she pets Puss..

marineland, strawberry jam and crisps oh my!

Well.. I must say I'm pretty impressed with how my strawberry crop is doing this year. In the past week I have harvested enough to make a really delicious strawberry/rhubarb crisp
Rhubarb/strawberry crisp from our garden
and a few jars of strawberry/rhubarb jam
making jam
@ 50 cents a jar.. tasty!
So that is much better than the two handfuls we got last year :)

We also got our Marineland season passes in the past week. I went with Joey and Tisha a few days back but the camera died before I got any pics of them... and I went another day with just Tisha as she was quite upset about the day with the older kids as she didn't get to go on many rides.

We managed to make a few new friends.. This is Cleo and Zena.

and our old friend Eve from last year.

She seems to remember me because every time I talked her melon would point in my direction like she was trying to listen harder. She also kept coming up to the top to see us :)
