Our weekend was the perfect blend of busy and slow.
And the weather was as varied as our activities.
Saturday was a cloudy day... with rain threatening.
By Sunday morning, it was a deluge... just in time for morning chores!
We went out in the dark, as usual... but, this time with torrential rain.
The barn gutters were overflowing, so Hubbs climbed a ladder
and cleaned out the fallen leaves.
(He's such a trooper... soaking wet!)
Farm breakfast was at Dr. Becky's this week,
and when we arrived home from that we were treated to a visit from our Littles.
|In anticipation, I had baked a batch of cookies on Saturday night.
Tyler had been in the area for a soccer tournament this weekend.
We watched one of his games on Saturday...
Then on Sunday, because they had a little extra time before the next
tournament game was to start, Tyler and his Mom joined us for lunch.
I had slow-cooked carnitas and then caramelized the meat in a cast iron skillet...
Luckily, with the Grands arrival... came the sun's arrival,
so we spent a bit of time riding the GoGo and exploring the farm and woods.
Mack and I worked on grooming the miniature horses
and she learned to hand graze them as well.
She loves to give hay to the horses.
By the time we had returned to the house from our adventures,
my camera was loaded with photos taken by a four year old....
It just so happened to be that day (each autumn) when the ladybugs come out of the woods
and crawl all over the barn.
Thanks to a four year old commandeering my camera... I have about 85 photos of them!
By the end of the weekend, we had had two dinners out with friends,
enjoyed our Grands,
spent quiet time on the farm,
did a little sewing,
and enjoyed every minute of the weekend from start to finish!
It's going to be a warm-ish week on the farm...
I'm looking forward to doing a little outside work.
Perhaps the donkeys and I will do a little hiking as well.
I hope to be posting several new items to my Etsy marketplace by the end of the week.
I've been very busy.
