around the house

These interesting fruits are Tiger Melons from our garden. Hubby planted them from seed. They are small, about the size of a large pomegranate and are sweet like a honeydew, but yet different. Meg says they have a pear texture.

We took down the netting from around the garden, the hens are blissfully a hen-ish sort of way. They love, love, love scratching around in the garden area that was before this very off limits to them.

Conversation at our house late Saturday night:

Me: "o.k., put another disk in..."

Sky: " what time is it?"

Me: "you really don't want to know, ...start the next episode... oh, o.k. it's 12:30 a.m."

Sky: " you know, we have to serve tomorrow morning in the children's meeting..."

Me: "alright, the sensible one".

we were discussing our Heroes addiction (clip here). We have to know what is going to happen next, it's hard to stop watching. It is on the gory side, just past my comfort zone, really- I wish they would tone that down some..we have to wait till the kids are in bed to watch it, as a result we have been pulling some late nights.
