Do you have a favorite day of the week?
Hands down. Best day. Entire week.
We usually reserve Sunday as a family day.
We try to always stay home...and love when family comes for a farm visit.
But even on the quiet Sundays when we are home alone,
the day is perfect.
Yesterday was one such day.
We slept in (until 7 AM!) and then went out to do AM chores.
Egg cleaning, farm breakfast, and a few household chores rounded out the morning.
Our afternoon was productive.
I knitted by the fire,
and did the afternoon feeding.
Hubbs deconstructed our winter-damaged platform tent
and burned the splintered tent poles.
We will be ordering new poles, mending the tent, and rebuilding early this summer.
Amanda made homemade herbed Chèvre from local goats milk.
I love goat cheese if it's not too "goaty"...
and this was perfect!
We had it for late afternoon hors d'oeuvres with locally-made whole grain crackers
and a little red wine.
Splendid end of the day!
Our weather remains a little chilly and partly sunny.
The farm remains quite muddy.
The only visible sign of spring, thus far, is the emergence of new growth
on our Saffron crocus.
I can hardly wait to harvest our own saffron this year!
And in the greenhouse, seeds are popping up...
We had a visit (at the house) from a couple of turkey dudes.
They rarely come to the house, but yesterday followed us home.
I was eager to see how our Roos would react to the turkeys,
but they acted as though they weren't even there.
Saturday afternoon was spent helping our Andy and his fiancé Ashley move into
their new house.
This is an exciting year for this couple...
with a new house and a wedding in June!
How about you...
what is your favorite day of the week,
Have a wonderful week. We are supposed to go from 80 degree weather (today) to rain on Wednesday....rain rain rain, we need it.
Oh,,, and I have discovered the best "Lavender Goat Cheese" which is uber hard to find,,, but I got lucky at Trader Joes awhile back... have not seen it since... bummer.. great on crustini bread! YUM!
p.s., remember the little 'nest' you sent me, about 3 years ago? well I placed it outside on the mini barn wall (in a metal tub) and go figure,,, our silly/thieving mountain blue birds stole it,,, strand by strand... there is only a couple of twigs left from the nest!... the good news is they used it to build their nest in the birdhouse about 20feet away... hows that for recycling? lol!
I have two favorite week days, friday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Friday Eve a no plan night . . . but time together. Sunday afternoon for being home, reading newspapers and books . . . and often a long walk. Best times indeed!
