Zoomer got guinea chicks this summer, and knowing my interest in this project of hers, she's so cleverly and delightfully been tucking into some of her e-mails what she labels each time a "Gratuitous Guinea Shot."  I'm always eager to see where the silly birds are this time and to have a window on their antics.  In the absence of my camera's USB cord — and in my effort to delay as long as possible the feast prep-work on my to-do list today — I decided to share with you Zoomer's silly guineas, which I plucked from her missives to me:

Now this next one I'll label "Gratuitous Garden Shot," and it displays what this amazing woman produced in the fall, after she'd made a cross-country move mid-summer.  We've been in our home 4 years now and still have packed, unexplored boxes in the barns.  Zoomer planted a garden on the new homestead and is reaping the harvest of her labors:

Kinda makes a slow-mover wanna upchuck applaud.  ºÜº  *applause*  You go, Zoomer!

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.  Proverbs 6:6-8

If I remember correctly -
these guys are cute, noisy and they eat tons of ticks!
good birds!
We are past gardening here - but we moved two tomato plants into the basement -
Mike rigged an aquarium light for plants -
at the window - 12 hours on - 12 off - and the
plants are happy - so far we've enjoyed the cherry tomatoes - and look forward to some of the bigger variety too. yum

Well, that was a brainy and industrious move on Mike's part. Ü Happy sandwiches!
