Aprons & Fish

School went good for Jessie - she made it through the whole day with not a whole lot of swelling in her arm and hand. But she was fine with laying around most the evening with ice on her arm to help the swelling go down.

We played in the pond somewhat last night - all my plants and fish are moved over. Tonight and tomorrow night we hope to put the rocks around it. Then it's dig the bog filter, plant it and DONE. Just in time for winter. Originally, I was going to have 2 ponds, but after thinking on it, we decided to get rid of the little pond that we had originally built, and use the materials from that to finish the bigger, new pond we dug a while back.

And once again, my fish had babies, and we had 11 babies this fall at some point (or at least, 11 that we caught). So we are now up to 25 fish, but I am giving some of the babies and the white ones from last year to a friend.

I love this cherry print fabric so much - another apron was in order. Although I did make this one a little too small - but it still works:

And I worked on a fall coat for my niece for her birthday after the kids were in bed (at 8:15 - they were tired) - hopefully tonight it will be done and I can post a picture of it. While it won't be as cute as this one, it should work the way I want it to.
