Snails are everywhere here - big, small and tiny. This little guy was pretty cute. This is his new home.

While eating dinner I was admiring my arrangement and found another little snail. Kaneu is amazed and likes to touch them. After we set the second snail free Kaneu started pretending his peas were snails, holding them in his hand and petting them. At breakfast today he thought it would be funny to say "mama, look a snail on your coffee". The game went on and on and on. There were snails on our eggs, our chairs, etc. I love his sense of humor and his creativity. Three years old and already playing jokes on mom! Here he is at the park on Wednesday, looking cute as ever.
Moving on ... while I was in the backyard I paid a little bit of attention to my neglected plants and herbs. I am a bit frustrated with my green thumb these days. Would you eat from this tomato plant? It has seen better days but I have to tell you that them 'maters are deliciously sweet! The peppers are pretty scary looking. I have not been adventurous enough to actually eat one. Perhaps I'll try again next year and actually transplant them from their containers (rather than taking the lazy way and planting containers).
What is wrong with my cilantro? Help!
I thought I'd post a pic of our first babe, Rosie. She is very food obsessed and eats just about everything, and I mean everything. I think she loves having Kaneu around because it's a sure thing she'll get at least a nibble and a few crumbs as the result of one of his meals or snacks. She lurks over and sidles up to the table and waits, and will not make eye contact. Maybe she thinks we can't see her if she refuses to look at us? Ahh, but we love her. Who wouldn't love this face?
Ok, well that's it for today. Time to clean. As you can see, very exciting stuff!
