Camera and Pretty Photos Found!

Imagine my surprise when I had all but given up searching for my old Nikon camera, and then by chance found it. I had looked in every basket, toy bin and bucket in the kids loft.
I had looked in every tool box, under car seats and in every drawer in the house. And then, while looking for something else in the laundry room, there was my camera!
I had shoved everything into a small basket in the cupboard months ago right before our open house.
And better than the found camera, was the found photos. These two were taken on differnt days, the first was during extreme weather showing the view from behind our house, over the lake.
The second is looking east, sometime in the morning.
After the house is sold, I'll be glad to have these photos to remember these lovely scenes. Enjoy!

Kids and Compost

Don't turn me in to the labor law folks for putting Nathan (4) to work in the compost heap.

Thanks to Omaha's yard waste recycling program, enormous piles of this sweet-smelling compost are available to the public for about $8 a truckload. Helper Will, and grandson Nathan took turns shoveling "Omagrow" compost into the truck.

We then spread this lovely soil amendment into garden areas in the front yard of the flip house. The butterfly bushes and blue fescue will love living there.

Someday, if we ever get financing to finish the project, new homeowners will love living there too.
