Turtle In A Tank & Sipping Ice Tea
One of my boys has a pet turtle in a tank. His turtle tank is in his bedroom where he can watch his turtle while falling asleep. We cleaned the tank the other day and put the turtle into the fresh water. Boy was the turtle happy to get back into the tank. Some time ago we got up on a Sunday and the turtle was missing. We searched and searched the house for the turtle but could not find it. Hours later our little dog was barking at one of the cupboards in the living room. Here the turtle was behind the cupboard in a jumble of extension cords for the lamps. We had looked there but did not see the turtle earlier. Thankfully the turtle was found by our little dog and returned to the tank. My son was very happy to have his turtle back. This will be the third summer since we got the turtle. Our turtle was a home school project.
It has been so hot lately and we have been making lots of ice tea. It may seem old fashioned but we like to drink ice tea from mason jars. Making it in mason jars makes it so easy to take out to the gazebo.
The boys have been so busy staining the arbor and moving some of the garden. There has been lots of mowing and trimming inside the garden.It is getting late and the sunsets lately have been so beautiful. The boys and I will soon be going to our bed rooms to get our nights rest to be ready for the next day. We wish you all a nice weekend.
Blessings til next time.
