Gillen has been working a lot this week at the farm. Every night he enters the house with a new "surprise" for me. The first day, he brought this beautiful bouquet that he'd picked for me. Then he brought tiny wild plums and blackberries, and a handful of blueberries, from the back fields. Today he plans to brave the back-field briars to pick more blackberries - enough for me to make a cobbler. Mmmm.
As evidenced below, Jesse and I have spent the heat wave in the art room. He has been making more cards for his Treno game. I have been playing with paper, pens and glue. Fracas has been happy to have the company, in what has very much become her room.
