The baby hedgehogs were so tiny and their eyes were still closed. Their spines were sharp as needles!
We had a good look and then put them back and replaced some of the wood over their nest.
The olives are nearly ready to be picked....
The house is coming along slowly. Mustafa says the workers will work during Ramadan, but I think he's being rather optimistic. The plasterwork is finished. It was a big headache. I'm a 'jibs' minimalist - I hate plaster - I think it looks ugly. Mustafa on the other hand thinks 'jibs' is great. We compromised and got the simplest looking plaster we could find. I still hate it, but he seems happy now. Sometimes you have to compromise. . . sigh . . .
The garage door has been installed. It will have glass panels behind the metal but they won't do that until the house is nearly finished.
Jenna found an interesting looking grasshopper and the kids played with it.
I went for the last walk around the farm. The leaves on the trees are just beginning to turn slightly yellow. Autumn is here, Ramadan will probably keep us too busy to spend much time at the farm. It was a nice peaceful last day before I face the kitchen for Ramadan. I'm ready for it now . . . are you?
