I Spy…

 In Uncategorized

Do you enjoy I Spy games? If so, here is a shot from the table in Jon’s room, our night guard. Jon loves to tinker with flashlights. He comes to our house each evening and stays until after sunrise; patrolling the yard to keep us safe and working the grounds.

Jon loves it when I give him small projects to keep him awake: uproot a volunteer tree, mop the porches, or turn the compost pile. He’s a self-starter even if he is a little over zealous with the pinking shears. He once took a class about how to make compost so he’s requested responsibility for the compost pile in our garden. I confess: I still work it, having to remove trash and branches.

Jon loves boiling hot, black coffee, and I’m happy to oblige as it helps him stay awake through the cooler and otherwise monotonous nights.
