My very first wood project is complete!
I faced the scary wood cutter and sander!
I sliced my fingers a bit working with the sharp edges on the sander, but it was worth it!
I added a bit of stain to them all to antique them.
Then, since I didn't want to crack the wood, I glued the street signs to the board.
Do you like it?
It's happily sitting on my dresser now, directing me to Middle Earth!
Sadly, the time came and went for me to take my goldfish over to Nana's pond.
They had outgrown their 5 gallon aquarium.
I never knew how much I would miss them until they were in the bucket heading over to her house.
Seriously, they were the most annoying, dirty fish in the world.
But I loved them!
I didn't want them to deal with temperature change shock, so I held them in the water like this for about 20 minutes until the water temperatures were about the same.
The "runt" of the aquarium was the first to explore and meet Nana's big koi fish!
The bullies were less excited to explore and stayed in the same place for a while.
Nana's got a little skinny frog living in her pond!
And has so many nice looking plants:
Wanna know a secret? Clouds make me really, super happy.
Dad took off work yesterday and we hiked Sugarloaf Mountain!
My family let me take the lead and had a hard time keeping up with me.
It was so refreshing. I couldn't make myself go slower!
These steps reminded me of Shelob's Lair in the Lord of the Rings, up up up they went!
Look at her face.
Just look at it!
I keep getting frequent visits at my window sill!
And we've got a little baby bunny living under the pine tree in our front yard!
Can you spot him hopping in action?
I got some more guppies!
Top to Bottom:
Amber, Vanilla, and Demetrie.
Sorry I couldn't get a better picture!
Water shots are hard!
I've kept busy doodling!
I get distracted while cooking for lunch and doodle on our weekly calender.
Olivia- This was going to be on the back of the envelope for your latest letter.
But I couldn't part ways with it!
I woke up at 4 am this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so I sketched out Nancy Drew.
I know I have more doodles tucked everywhere in my room.
I've been so inspired lately!!
How's everybody's Summer going?
Fourth of July plans?
