It was a great weekend! The weather was almost perfect. I say "almost" because I would have liked about 5 degrees cooler but still, it was nice.
I got a lot done.
Woke up Saturday morning to this...
|Sausage gravy and biscuits|
...with sausage gravy! 2nd Man said I needed to start the day with a hearty meal. It was wonderful.
I got to the farm and roamed around exploring. I like to do that, just to see how things are and to enjoy our property.
The grass is still short...not sure if I'll have to mow again this season. Rain would change that but there is none in the forecast for the next week so we'll see what happens...
I came home Saturday night to grilled pork chops, mixed veggies, and saffron wild rice. Of course it was delicious...
Today, I went back out but just to finish up a few things and one of the first things I had to do was exterminated the wasp nests around the house and property. This one was right behind the motion light on the side of the house...
...and this was in a tree that I almost bumped into the last time I mowed. That would not have had a pleasant ending. The wasps didn't have a pleasant ending either. I hate killing anything but wasps are just too dangerous to keep around. I'm sure there are plenty in remote parts of the property way up high in a tree, and they can stay...for now, ha.
It was a wonderful weekend to open the windows and let the house air out. Curtains blowing in the breeze are relaxing...and nap inducing.
Waking up from a nap and coming back into town to homemade cinnamon buns, well, that was like a dream! Recipe coming soon.
I got several projects done and did some planning and measuring for the fruit trees, garden stuff, edging, weed pulling, pulled some books to sell, etc. More on those events in upcoming posts.
Hope you had a great weekend!
