Good morning, everyone,
What a gorgeous day yesterday and another today! DH took full advantage of it and the new JD tractor he used to till the rest of the garden. The smaller one (sold this weekend, too) wasn't powerful enough to haul/use the tiller without getting bogged down. I even had to pull him out with the big orange one (in the background of the photo) one year. So, a good investment.
tt, you have inspired me to do my all time least favorite house task - the woodwork. It's cream colored, and with the dust, black dog hair, cooking, wood stove soot, etc., it's never really clean even 5 minutes after I do it. But, it has to be done, and today is the day. Bucket, rag...here I come.
Yesterday got to all the toilets and took the pumice stone to the rings - they are gleaming!
Nov, you and my other friend with nearly one year olds are in full party planning mode. The triplets' birthday is next month! Do you have a theme? I think their theme is "surviving triplets." ;)
We had our first salad from the garden last night! The asparagus is slowing down, but I think I'll have enough for a third delicious batch of Vitamix cream of asparagus soup. It's beyond good and so few calories it's like magic food. Eggplant parm would have gone nicely with the salad.
DH is happy to be a vegetarian all summer, but Tulips, I'd be glad to help you with all that meat. I'm a dyed in the wool carnivore.
Pingo, hope your antibiotics wipe the bronchitis out. I'm still hoping not to have to take them, although, my cough is on the edge.
Have a great short work week, everyone.
