Promises are one thing I hate to ever renege on.
Does time ever get the best of you?
Then you will understand....
This weekend got a bit busier than I had anticipated.
I will however give you a photo tour instead.
First the outside of the front....
When we first planned to build a log home,
we found a picture in a log home magazine of the front of a home very similar to this.
We fell in love with the look of that home and decided to model ours after it.
We then sat down and drew our own plans for what was to be inside.
After a few tries, we succeeded in drawing something build-able.
Above the garage, is a cupola with a beehive....
The front door....
The front deck....
From the front door, we enter into the living room.
To the left is the stairway to the upstairs loft...
Beyond is the dining room and kitchen...
(more on that at another time)
(yes, each room comes complete with its own dog)
Back deck and screen porch....
Our home is our haven....the place we love to be.
I received a question about what I cook with the veggies that we harvest from our garden.
So, I thought I would share a typical weekend farm breakfast with you.
Saturday morning I picked this....
Yes, those are purple carrots!
I sliced two freshly harvested red potatoes, some scallions and some asparagus.
Sauteed them in a pan with a little olive oil.
Added eggs and made a frittata.
Breakfast menu: Frittata with asparagus and thyme, sliced purple carrots,
French breakfast radishes, and fresh picked blueberries on
homemade whole grain Belgian waffles.
Delicious and so nutritious!
The perfect way to start a day filled with farm chores.
Breakfast on the screen porch.
Green tea with fresh mint from the garden.
A pot of mint tea for iced tea.
As I harvest different items from the garden,
I will share with you how I plan to use each veggie.
So, I might not have gotten a video done, but we did, however,
spread an entire 9 months worth of manure on our hay field,
mowed 4 pastures, 4 goat pens,
moved the Cuckoo Marans from the French Quarter to their new home with
Rod Stewart and the rest of the Polish hens,
worked in the garden,
picked wild raspberries,
and visited with our kids.
It was a great weekend - a full weekend!
Thanks for understanding!!
