Little important nothings of the goings on at the Walker Residence. Like the summer nights that gradually start a little earlier, now midsummer has passed. It’s really noisy with crickets and cicadas chirping and buzzing like mad.
Charley adorned with her favorite jewel is looking out for those cheeky raccoons!
And what a glorious feeling it was, to safe together with a neighborhood boy and two police officers 11 little ducklings who had fallen in the sewer. Mama Wood Duck had alerted us with running in circles around the grate of the sewer. Amazingly, once we started hauling up the little babies, she settled herself underneath a bush in the garden calling to and collecting her brood. The long limbed lady in hat is me, the handle of the net was a bit short and my arms were by far the longest…
Summer baking..a lovely lemon pie and an upside down apple cake.
Experimenting with markers…that’s actually quite hard to work with!
Summer reading consists of revisiting classics like ‘Jane Eyre’ and ‘Middle March’ .But I also enjoy this delightful 1930 children’s book ever so much! I am certainly of a later date but it still brings happy memories!
Youngest Mr. Walker was here for a week, and Charley enjoyed going for drives even more!
And I always enjoy watching water striders. They have so many different names. In Dutch they are called ‘skate riders’ .
But the Stars of Summer in my opinion are these elegant water damsels.
De zomer gaat door, met steeds langere zomeravonden, samen met politie agenten en een buurjongen eendjes redden uit t riool , taarten bakken, lekker lezen, experimenteren met stiften , een bezoek van de jongste Walkerboy en leuke dieren in de natuur als schaatsen rijders en waterjuffers.
Love and Liefs, Johanna
