This weekend was made up of scouring another community yard sale on Saturday morning with a friend and my mom. My favorite purchases: vintage bowls and a wonderful old tray. Most unique items for sale: a guillotine and an electric chair. They were handmade items that someone made for Halloween, but life size and very realistic. If I had room in the car…
Then off to the farm where hubby and I spent the rest of Saturday and all day today. It was one of those times that nature made the decisions for you. Due to some quite consistent rain we had all last week, the garden was nothing but squishy mud, so I couldn’t get anything done in there. Saturday evening we made some sirloin sliders and pasta salad, took a brisk walk and then parked ourselves in some folding chairs where we watched the ducks, scouted for bears and talked about everything under sun. Today I cleaned the inside of the house and planned my upcoming preserving/canning strategy. It was unhurried, relaxing and just what we both needed.
While at the farm, I did take my photo challenge pics too. For yesterday’s subject “your favorite shoes”, I took a picture of my ratty old Reeboks that I love. They have been dubbed “farm shoes” for a long time now due to the fact that they are not respectable enough to wear in public, but they fit me so well! So I garden in them, walk the trails at the farm and just keep loving them. They’re so ugly that they’re cute.
Today’s subject is “hands”. Well…here’s one of them, while looking up what today’s subject was. 🙂
