"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Sweet Moments!

Practicing with Aunty.

My lovely Mama.

Learning a bit from Aunty. LOVE this picture!

We so enjoyed Nana and Aunty's visit although all parties would say it was way too short.

We are settling back into the swing of things here and our place, although thing seem off today. It started this morning when we though Lyla ran off some time in the night. Two friends work at local post offices and started having people look for her. We drove all over the area, twice, calling her name. We figured that with the HUGE noise of all the fireworks last night, she got out and got scared. After we got home after trip #2, Aaron went into the hard, and thought to look under one side of the house. It would be a tight squeeze, but MAYBE she might be under there. Sure enough, happy as a clam (it was cool, she is fluffy and hot) was Lyla, stuck. All of us are thankful she was just stuck and not hit by a car or stolen!

After the stress of morning, we though it would be fun to eat lunch up at the fishing pond. I went to get the end of the hose to fill up the dog water and noticed that the compost bin was on fire. Odd....Aaron dumped in some old ashes, and with the sun right on them, must have had one that was still kinda warm and with the added heat, got hot enough to burn the wood. That was easily put out and from now on we will wet down the compost after throwing in ANY ash!

This afternoon was relaxing, I worked on a throw blanket while the kids payed and ran and Aaron fishes. We then headed to the pasture and filled up water for the critters and then picked up a bag of alpaca fleece. Home for tidying the house, music practice and dinner (chicken salad wraps and the above ice cream). Stories, teeth brushed and PJ's in place the kids are in bed. Aaron went to spend some quite moments fishing some more and I am off to keep up on my throw.
