The weather yesterday was absolutely gorgeous: Seventy degrees, sunny, and breezy! Ah, Spring! Chickpea and I took the opportunity to play outside without wearing coats.
After a while, I went back inside to work in the kitchen, and I let her play outside the front door. After a while, she came in and asked for a drink of water. I gave her one, and she took the cup outside with her. A few minutes later, she came in and asked for more. And a few minutes later, she asked for even more. At this point, I'm thinking she's either going to wet her pants or she's up to something. I peek out the front door and see:
You can't tell from the photo, but the bucket is filled with water.
It is, apparently, a well. Except the water comes from my water pitcher instead of from the ground. A reverse well, I guess. I especially love the rocks arranged at the bottom.
No doubt about it, the child has a thing for sticks and rocks. Add some string and a little scotch tape, and who knows what she'll come up with?
