We had a nice, but rushed weekend. Firstly, did I mention that Mr. W has a new job? His job of about thirty years was sent offshore late last year. After being unemployed for 10 months, finally a job! Can I get a Hallelujah? It’s a totally new line of work for him (retail) but he is really enjoying it so far.
Saturday, Mr. W had a not so blessed brush with some ground bees while woodcutting. He was stung about 15 times before he managed to get away from the vicious swarm that came sneakily out of the ground. He’s fine, but we were concerned for a little bit. Shortly after a good dose of Benadryl and baking soda, and we decided he was going to be just fine… we had special guests from Osage Bluff, Patti and BT. It was a short but nice visit! I’ve decided they should move closer so we can visit more often (I’m selfish that way).
The guys (the Blacksmith & Fiddler) picked up a nice used fridge from my sister’s old house today. This will be used in the Barn/Cottage. Afterwards, we went to DS & BIL’s new farm to celebrate her birthday with gifts and cake and ice cream. I should have taken pictures of her flock of Toulouse geese who were so comically parading through the yard. Or her beautiful sheep. We were too busy touring and visiting. Alas… next time.
My homemade gift for Sis was a grain sack style pillow. I stenciled her farm name, “Little Flower Farm” and Sheep Feed in French to add a little French Country flair. Now, friend Andrea, could you please tell me if I came anywhere near what I intended to say in French? Don’t hold back. Show me no merci (hehe!).
On our way back from the birthday celebration, we took a quick detour to a local small town so I could capture photos of this. Isn’t it très cool? Someone made a huge effort here, and I, for one, appreciate it.
How did you spend this September weekend? Hope it was a pleasant one!
