Sanded the bathroom sheetrock, cleaned up construction and caulked. Two primed coats and two painted coats for the bathroom walls, doors and ceiling.
Listened to my current audio book (Bernd Heinrich's The Homing Instinct...my second book from him, I really enjoy his books).
And if that wasn't enough painting, the stairyway is painted now too.
Watered and fertilized the garden with my homemade fertilizer.
Picked raspberries, cherries and a few blueberries.
Made homemade blueberry pancakes.
Made big salads with homegrowns thrown in.
Had a surprise visit with friends (thanks for stopping!).
Nature journaled with watercolors, specifically the black tiger swallowtail caterpillar that we are keeping in a safe space on the porch for observation and enjoyment.
Played with dogs.
Made homemade bread to have with homemade jam. Plus scrambled up the eggs we gathered.
Helped Adrian get started with a baking project.
Made homemade bread and calzones (big hit).
Made a dry rub for some chicken that my husband slow cooked on the smokey joe.
Line dried 4 loads of laundry.
Unloaded the dishwasher a thousand times and handwashed too many dishes.
Enjoyed church online.
Set up a Calico Critter playset.
Swam in the ocean.
Went out for ice cream.
Am thankful for our AC units.
Went for two walks, one with the girls and Holly, one solo with Copper. Collected handfuls of nature on the walk with the girls.
Read books to the kids. Curious George. Amelia Bedelia. Berenstain Bears. Finished "Timmy O'Dowd and the Big Ditch: A Story of the Glory Days on the Old Erie Canal" with them. (A nod to my college days, walking distance to the Erie Canal)
Finished a book that I was reading (Last Child in the Woods) and am now off to finish another book before bed (Awaking Wonder).
That was one heck of a weekend.
