A lovely afternoon camping out in the backyard
Recently I found a little surprise in our storage room, and this was the week when we finally pulled it out. The day we were trying it, an unidentified bug flew inside my ear. The sound of its desperate flapping next to my eardrum was a little freaky, but I did great at not freaking out by suspending the thought “there is an insect flying inside my ear”, and by the time we checked it at the E. R. he had gotten out. So next day was the day to truly enjoy our little tent.
Kiki crawled in it with a sleeping bag and a pillow, and while I worked on providing some needed shade for my south-facing growing vegetables, I slipped a few surprises to him and encouraged him to explore and maybe harvest some lettuce to snack on. I asked him (if he was interested) to write a post for my blog regarding his experience in this adventure.
He invited me to read what he wrote. I loved it!
And then we proceeded to have a lovely time inside the tent, playing tic tac toe, Deal or No Deal (Kiki’s favorite these days), wrestling with music selection, munching his toes and venturing to pick so many leaves of lettuce I may need to sow a lot more than I planned.
Thank you for a lovely time together, gordo mio.
