Pool Party in the Shade!

It's has been beastlyhot here for the last couple of weeks. In the 90's every day. We wanted to be able to get wet, and tried to put up the inflatable ring pool, but it had a leak, the air lasted only a few hours.  Karol and Andy still had their pool from last year, so we pulled it out and set it up. It went up quick, and filled up in about three hours  our old filter connected fine, and a couple of chlorine tablets and we are good to go. They even have the pool cover so we can cover it if we get a bad storm.


So today we are having a pool party.  Papa is mowing, and then he'll head over for a bucket of KFC.


The kids are working on crushing cans.

Holly is already in the pool!

Indoor Beehive


This is the tube connecting the indoor hive with the outdoors.


Here's where we put the jar of sugar water.


The is the flow frame, before they started sealing between the cells.


This one is from yesterday, they are completely covering the flow frame.


This is the back of the hive. Since there is more of a gap on that side, they are building extra cells. 


Up close your can see the cells.


They are evry

Eggsplosion!

Boy do we have eggs. I hope I have enough cartons!


Meanwhile, Mother Duck is sitting on a pile of them. 






Stromberg Carlson Telephone

Can you hear me now? The Stromber Carlson Telephone has a new home at the cabin. 
A couple of weeks ago, the farmer and I were in Florida to visit family. We spent the weekend at my parents house and worked on a couple of projects. One project was to replace the big gate that closes the driveway to the motor home parking spot. 

Big job, but looked very nice when done, as you can see.

Spring is in the Air!!!


The grass is green, fancy cars are blue!

This is Tim's new obsession. I'm waiting to see if he gives her a name.

I also got to work on the garden this weekend.
