One of the greatest ideas of all time got implemented this weekend.
I was trying to figure out how to rework a soaker hose that had a bunch of high octane leaks in it.
FinnigantheCurious has been asking for some sprinkler action like they had at Deep Springs. (This was a super fancy watering system that watered some big expanses of area. The kids loooooved them.)
Clearly I couldn't reproduce that, so I was hemming and hawing over the soaker hose.
He decided to jump on the trampoline while waiting.
Trampoline + Soaker Hose ....
See where this is going?
Please do let your kids do the poking.
Finn loooooved getting to stab the hose over and over.
A little tutorial from Jackdaddy-o.
OMG, this was sooooooo fun and soooooo easy.
We attached it with tie wraps, and let her rip.
I've got about 14 hours of video that I won't bore you with, but lemme just tell ya, this WORKED.
I got a little garden time in too ...
I just love kid writing.
I also love these garden markers soooooo much.
I didn't take a picture of the bag, but I'll do that today and show ye.
I plant the same sugar snap peas and lettuce (and herbs) year after year so I can reuse these, which is grand.
Tomorrow I wanna show you our BRILLIANT idea for chicken-proof raised bed covers. (Google that mouthful, y'all.)
Well, actually, we stole the idea from someone, but then refined it, so now it's OUR idea.
It really is brilliant and I am sooooo freakin relieved to have a tidy and attractive solution to the freee-range chicken vs vegetable bed issue!
Huge for me. HUGE.
The litttle boy's room is still not done, dammit.
Too much outsideing this weekend cuz it was only in the 90s.
When it's in the 90s in mid-August, we central Texans are practically putting on sweaters.
Well, we are planting fall crops in 90 degree weather, for real.
Now for a total non sequitur ...
Need a kitty fix?
Lordy, this is the BEST kitten.
Exactly the kind of cat I most love: independent, but lovey. Brave, curious, confident and QUIET.
Did I mention that she sleep through the night?
Did I mention that she figured out the dog/cat door on day TWO and that she nows poops and pees outside?
From DAY TWO?
Honestly, she is such a good, good kitten. We all adore her.
Although, she does really fart. Not that we've noticed anyway.
How was your weekend? Huh? Huh?
