The First of The Month–Watch Them Grow

Image
Another month has rolled around and an opportunity to post a new photo for the First of the Month.   This photo meme is hosted by Jan @ Murrieta 365.

The  goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first of each month.    It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your  focus is, is fine.  It can even be a record of where you are each First  of the Month. 

My theme is my three grandchildren, Zbub, Mizelle, and Dinkum.  It is called:



Watch them grow!




A couple of notes about this photo.  Dinkum decided he was going to be in a bad Moo'd.  That is a 3 1/2 year old's perogative, I guess.

The photo was taken at a dairy farm that milks thousands of cows.    Z-Bub, the 5  1/2 year old was a bit shocked.  Maybe he hadn't realized how the milk actually gets into the carton at the store.   He said, "Grandma, I'm never going to drink milk again!"   His resolution only lasted until dinner, whereupon he asked for a glass of chocolate milk.

Ostrich Feathers

I live in a small town.  (Around thirty thousand inhabitants.)

I was reminded of that fact yesterday when WR and I stopped at a business that provides cleanup services for homes and businesses.  They hire out teams to mop up after small fires, sewage spills, floods, and other major messes of your choice.  In addition to renting out their staff, they have a small store front in which they display and sell a limited amount of janitorial supplies to others who "clean" for a living.



My quest for a real ostrich feather duster was why I ventured there.  I had used my daughter Karmyn's feather duster (while helping her after her surgeries) and thought it made dusting less excruciating . There was something kind of French Maidy about it.

Dusting is my least favorite chore, so I won't say I was excited about finding them on display.  I will say, however, that I was pleased there were several choices and they were in my price range.  I chose one and we set it on the counter.

Washing Dishes

Mizelle always wants to help with the dishes.  Last night Grandpa grabbed the Canon Digital and caught her helping Grandma.  You might be distracted by the chaos in the background as her brothers noisily going on about their business of play.

(The humming noise may be something going wrong with the camera.)
