Can you see the baby in there? Yesterday, she took her first nap in the shipping container. Now we just have to figure out how to entertain her while she’s awake so we can both get some work done. She currently is on a dirt-eating spree and stuffs fistfuls of the stuff into her mouth whenever she gets even half a chance. The ground at the land is all either bare dirt, dead leaves (another tasty favorite), or small plants over bare dirt (they don’t even slow her down on her way to the dirt). The nearest grass is currently at the campsite at the top of the hill – too far from all the action. So Lars is working on seeding the flat spot at the bottom of the hill with grass – I can’t wait until it has filled in!
Also accomplished yesterday:
– Nya’s first picnic eating solids at the land (she’s had plenty of milk-only picnics).
– transplanted a bazillion baby raspberry canes into our patch.
– raked the leech field in preparation for seeding with grass.
– found the well pipe that had been buried under the rubble left over from the cabin last summer; discovered the pump is on the fritz; tried to fix the pump, but ran out of time; put the grass watering (and therefore grass seeding) project on hold.
