Onward We Go

57 at 8 am this morning, after a showery night. It is beginning to feel like Spring. I hear that the hummingbirds have arrived in Southern Virginia, so they should arrive in a couple weeks here. I planted tomato and other seeds, and transplanted cabbages, broccoli, tomatoes, and kale into bigger pots. All the plants are in the greenhouse now that the Temps have finally warmed up. The starting seeds are inside, however, to guarantee a proper germination temperature. 

More of the same going on here---work on the cabin site, lots of mud, lots of cooking. The cabin sadly did not arrive yet, as there seems to be an issue now with placing it on the foundation. A crane operator came, looked, and said he couldn't do it so now other options are being explored. It will happen soon, but we are not sure when.

Yesterday we had our number 3 son and his daughter and granddaughter here, so I made snickerdoodle cookies, their favorite. Then for dinner chicken pot pie with a biscuit crust instead of piecrust,  and a big tossed salad. Perfect for a blustery day.

Little Ellie certainly ate her share. She is such a sweet baby, and seems much older than her 15 months.

Today Sarah is leaving, and we hate to see her go. Here she is, stylin' the coveralls we found for her. They were perfect for the muddy work this week.

What a good visit this has been. 

These little guys are blooming now. I can't remember their name...Glory of the Snow, maybe?

Later on we will be at our booths, restocking for the weekend.  So a short post today, as I get ready for the rest of the day.

  1. I don’t know what those little flowers are either. I thought they might be crocuses until I zoomed in. The colours were right though.

  2. Oh my, that chicken pot pie sounds delicious! My dad loved chicken - or turkey - pot pie, and I don't think I've had it since he passed away. I sure hope the cabin and foundation can agree to meet! And could the flower be scilla? The name popped into my head, but I don't know why.
