First, a coffee bean roasting update from yesterday’s post – we STILL haven’t tried it yet (I think we’re chicken – it smells burned!). I promise we’ll be brave and try some soon. And I’m sure we’ll do better next time. Jayme reassures me it takes a few tries to get it right… thanks again, Jayme!
Most days over the past week have been, well,
a little gray. So again, this walkabout reflects the gray days. Did I mention the gray, long, when-will-spring-arrive days?
Cardinal silhouette in tree, Red Bud tree seedpods, donkey weather vane, coneflower seed head, geese in flight, allium perhaps ‘jumping the gun’ a bit, and at center – birdhouse reflection in big water puddle.
I also thought the giant logs Mr. W dragged up on Tuesday were blogworthy (and very much appreciated since our woodpile is dwindling fast!). The logs are Water Oak and Black Oak/Scarlet Oak. You might see glimpses of our little helpers here & there…
Mini-journal update for the last week--
I’ve been really bad at keeping notes this time. And now, I have a headache and a temporary memory lapse…
Friday evening – I had an enjoyable evening with a dear friend & neighbor.
Weekend – spent mucking through the mud!
Monday – Among laundry & other Monday tasks, I cleaned one nightmare kitchen cabinet out – the under-sink cabinet. It was scary, but not anymore.
Tuesday – a follow-up doctor’s appointment for me. Mr. W dragged up two giant logs for the woodpile.
Wednesday – Mr W worked up most of the two gigantic logs he brought up Tuesday. We burned, I mean *roasted* green coffee beans in the afternoon :) A fun, learning experience!
Weather: has been gray, overcast, some rain, decent temps for this time of year – 30’s in daytime hours with a couple of colder days mixed in. Two days with peeks of blessed sunshine.
Hope your week is going well!
