BOB AND CAMILLE AT HOME ON MAUI

 

WHAT'S BOB MAKING THIS TIME?

JURASSIC GARDEN

There is often something primeval about our garden.  I'm sure I'll see a dinosaur peek out from behind the tree ferns one day.  What I saw this evening was Bob doing his usual thing.

 

GREEN HARVEST

 

It's taken nearly two years, but we have replaced the dirt driveway with green lawn.  To do this, we blocked the drive with a large tree limb and transplanted kikuyu grass.  Now we can walk barefoot from the house to the garden and the house stays clean.  Bob smiles with satisfaction while showing off tonight's salad as picked from that garden in bare feet on August 23rd.

 

A SUNSET TO REMEMBER

What can we say?  Everybody takes pictures of sunsets and shows them off.  We're no different.  This memorable blend of color and cloud occurred August 21st.

 

AT THE END OF THE DAY

Bob sips an amber beer from a frosty glass at sunset.

We found a new use for the top of the refrigerator.  Here are three batches of beer, including batch 13, a cherry flavored beer from a recipe called "Love Potion."  This fruity beer was so active when first put in the keg that it flowed over onto the top of the refrigerator during the night.  Bob was up at 2AM August 17th cleaning up the mess.

 

WHAT A PAIR

 

See the pitchfork?  See the Bread?  Bob working outside; Camille working inside.

 

HP STANDS FOR HEWLETT PACKAGING

For shame!  All this packaging for the two little black plastic toner cartridges at the bottom of the photo.

 

THE CUTTING EDGE

Cookie cutting an edge with the lawn shears.  The lawn keeps getting thicker and the Ylang Ylang tree taller.

 

PARKING LOT EXPANSION TURNED ARCHAEOLOGY

 

Look what Bob found while expanding this parking space August 11th!  What is it?  For us, it will be a compost screen.  Bob was afraid something might be living under there and stood back, but nothing ran out.

 

MAUI RECYCLING SERVICE'S NEW FLATBED

This brand new diesel truck arrived August 10th.  Shaun bought an F450 and we'll fuel it with biodiesel.  It is larger than the other truck, which is why we expanded the parking lot at home.

 

SATURDAY ROUTE

  

The family that works together, stays together. This once-a-month Saturday route is easy work and takes us away from civilization to the pretty north shore.

 

DINNER AND A MOVIE

 

Not again!  Seems like we do this every night. . . In our little bowls and at our little table.  This August 6th we are preparing to watch Eddie Izzard, our favorite comedian.  Dinner is bread, salad and borscht

 

COOKIE LOVES THE OUTDOORS

 

Here she is with a bunch of arugula for dinner and a pink daisy.  Camille had a lot of fun pulling grass from this beautiful bed of bromeliads.  The best days are those spent outside!

 

CHICKEN RUN GUN

Keeping the garden safe!  The garden fences weren't keeping the chickens away to our satisfaction.  Now they don't come around much and if they do, all Bob has to do is step outside the door and they run.
