Dirt, Bugs & Popsicles...

...don't go together.
But this last week has been full of them all.
All the chia pudding and sprouts in the world didn't manage to keep the various 
flu bugs away from our house.
So, out came the popsicle maker. 
My beloved Zuko...makes them in just 7 minutes!
Which is absolutely awesome...

..unless you can only find one popsicle stick and you already poured in the juice.

But today, we all got outside.
I love that they wait for her to catch up.

We are completely re-working the vegetable patch.

And that means everyone digs.

I think we all remember those popsicle makers...I think we had to use Kool-Aid though.:) And your photos are absolutely brilliant and it makes me smile. I hope everyone will get better soon!

Your chickens are adorable!

Awww. Such cute pictures. Wish I could dig in the dirt but it is under lots of snow.
My family is thinking of going to BC- Whistler in March to ski. I dont ski but want to go to.. Never been to BC and it looks so beautiful.

A girl, her dog and a chicken; delightful photo. I still love that one you posted: first your girl running, then her dog running and finally the chicken running. So sweet and adorable!
Great that you can actually dig in the garden. We have so much snow, and it is horrifically cold.
Glad everyone is on the mend!

Looks like a happy day at Missing Goat! Popsicles sound pretty good to me, right about now. Sweet pics as per usual ;)
