It was an indoors kind of weekend.
Rain, rain, rain.
It seems our April showers have extended into May!
By Sunday afternoon things were quite soggy.
The rain had slowed down to just a mist,
so we ventured out to tend to the animals.
The goats came out for the first time in days.
We had to empty an inch of rain from their bowls in order to feed them.
In spite of the dreary conditions outside,
we had a perfectly wonderful weekend with our kids and grandkids.
Everyone stayed over and joined in Sunday Farm Breakfast.
Tyler, soon 6...
discovered that fruit is even better with fresh made whipped cream!
Mackenzie, 8 months...
who has decided that she wants nothing to do with baby food.
And despite the fact that she has nary a tooth in her mouth,
she insists upon feeding herself...
whatever it is that everyone else is eating.
We cut everything into small bits for her and she shovels it in by the fistful.
I spent a little time in the sewing room on Sunday.
I have had so many ideas whirling around in my mind,
and I finally had a little time to work on them.
Lots of linen, homespun and laces being worked together....
and a little tea-staining as well.
Pictures later this week...
I am so glad Monday is here.
I love weekends, but there is so much peace in the ebb and flow of daily life.
I love the rhythm of each and every day.
We might even see a little sunshine sometime this week!
The garden is calling my name.
So, as soon as it dries.... I will be elbow deep in soil!!!
Those veggies that I planted a few weeks ago are loving this rainfall.
And of course, so are the weeds.
I am taking a different stand on weeds this year.
Trying to have a weed-free garden is no longer my goal.
Détente may be much more manageable!
