It has been one busy week. Even without the ongoing wildness at work, the homefront has been plenty enough to keep us hopping.
Let's start with Sunday. Heavy rains kept us inside, but we had plenty to do. I caught up on house things and Larry cleaned his building. The evening was fun with family, celebrating Derek's birthday.
38 candles make quite a glow, and did you know they can also melt icing? Amy made a carrot cake and cream cheese frosting from scratch. M-m-m-m-m-m doesn't begin to describe it.
Monday morning leaving for work I found this:
The creeks were a little high, but unfortunately not high enough to keep me home, so off to work I went. The water had subsided by the time I got home and I pulled weeds in gardens and spread a few bags of mulch before dark.
Tuesday evening was Haley's track meet, so we enjoyed some rest as we waited for her to run. I was pretty tired so we watched her race once before heading home. My camera is acting up these days, so I ended up without any good photos of her running. Drat. Time for a new camera, methinks.
Last night we worked at the cabin, hauling off more wood to be burned and piling up wood we can use and salvage metals. Larry had a helper who was a lot of fun to have with us.
Tonight we were back at the cabin, getting down to the end of the old kitchen. We should finish that part of the job by the middle of next week, and then the real work begins--taking down the logs. When we came home it was still light enough to pick raspberry leaves for drying, transplant pepper seedlings into pots in the greenhouse, and relax by the firepit.
Friday night we'll be home getting ready for a visit from our daughter-in-law and granddaughters. The weekend promises much family fun--and a good bonfire with all that old wood.
Plenty to burn here! But isn't the chimney lovely? Hand-cut stone, probably 150-200 years old.
That's the week so far. How is your week going?
