Children with Umbrella
This is a sweet picture from 1902 showing two children with an Umbrella.It looks like a studio portrait but nonetheless, it is a nice photograph.
Many of you have emailed or commented requesting an update on the Lovely Ms. EAM and other domestic activities. The Lovely Ms. EAM's recovery continues to be slow. She has been home from the hospital for a couple of weeks now. She has spent most of that time in bed. She is now able to get out of bed and walk around the house a little. She still is not going out, but hopefully in the next few days will be strong enough to venture out. As she tries to recover from the Malaria, she has been hit with some stomach troubles which has made it hard for her to keep anything down, and she is fighting a throat infection. It appears Malaria takes such a toll on your strength you are susceptible to all types of other things.
I suspended operation in the greenhouse when we went to Africa, because there was no way to keep it running while we were gone. A few weeks ago, I planted lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers. All the little plants are coming up, and Mrs. PJM is looking forward to home grown vegetables.
Our peacock flock stands at about 20 right now. Love is in the air, so there is lots of parading around by the males. The flock is becoming much larger than we would like, so I am not sure what happens this year if the 8 hens all have 4 babies.
Anyway, that is what is going on around here, and thank you for asking.
