Yesterday was a cool day with a lovely breeze, so we took advantage of it and put in a whole, full day of wood working. It was one of those days when in the evening the physical work has left you tired but feeling very, very good knowing all you accomplished.
I think the cool weather yesterday was the rain front working its way into our area. It started sprinkling after dinner as I was trying to pick the day's harvest of strawberries. I had to holler for Papa Pea to please come help me. We got about 80% of them before the rain drove us in.
The precipitation is making the garden grow (I think I could actually see it!) as I watched it from hubby's upstairs office window this morning. I'd take a few garden pictures to add to this post, but the rain is still coming down, and I'm sure I'd melt if I went out in it.
Three loads of laundry are done this morning and the second one is in the dryer. No laundry on the clotheslines outside today. Besides the rain, my clothes poles on the deck are currently out of commission because of the deck still being in the de-construction phase.
Shortly, I'm off to meet with some special ladies for an hour or so of talking, handwork, visiting, and catching up with each other. Then on to the farm on my way home for a resupply of fresh, raw milk products. I'll pick up extra today for making kefir, yogurt and cottage cheese. The fresh cottage cheese tastes so good with cut up garden veggies on it. Fresh berries aren't bad either if we have a hankering for something sweet.
This afternoon? Even if the rain stops, the garden will be too wet to work in. Or for much of any outside work as far as that goes. There are three links of sausage leftover in the refridge that will add some zing to a pot of Lentil Soup so I'll get that simmering on the stove. Beyond that, we'll just have to wait to see what exciting happenings occur.
