by the numbers

our house reminds me of a kiddo smeared with calamine lotion!4 gallons of primer put on so far - we are working on repairing and preparing to paint the exterior

30 gallons of paint waiting to be applied (I'm so excited to see our house looking good!)

6,000 gallons of water pumped from our well and applied to the garden

0.10/inch amount of rain we got last night - a mere sip for our garden

3 times a day we check on the animals in this heat - ensuring water and shade for them

91 temp of our house at midnight last night, when I went to bed

21 cucumbers Jeff brought in from the garden today

5250 pounds of feed ordered today for the pigs, piglets, growers, layers and turkeys

2 more weeks until Jeff starts his other fulltime job (teaching) - and we're definitely not ready, we love having him home!


What numbers are cropping up in your life these days?

Great numbers Jamie -- Canning is a lot of work --s o I can appreciate the sweat that went along with those numbers. Hard to believe Gioia is that old -- I remember her being so tiny when we first met on that camping trip many years ago!

Wow! There are only 2 numbers that mind is consumed with, and that's 30, how many weeks pregnant I am, and 8 or 9, the number of weeks I have until baby gets here!

Oliver, my little one, just turned 4, and we have 14 chicks (our first ever) that are 6 weeks old!

You definitely are doing some important "gardening" this summer.
