A Good Weekend

On Saturday
we mowed,
both in town 
and at the farm,


and planted
frost tolerant crops 
in the garden;

peas, spinach, lettuces, turnips, parsnips



and lots of carrots   : 0 )


Come to think of it,

not all of us worked.

Some of us were kicked back


or downright lazy


to the point I was afraid rigor mortis had set in.


That's okay - only those of us who worked
got to go see the Hunger Games.


On Sunday
we trimmed goat hooves,
and got the snow tires switched out on the car,
which never needed put on in the first place.

We were also blessed with a visit from Sara.
which is always a hoot  :  )


She cut the twins bangs while she was here.
There might have been a tear or two involved
but it happens with haircuts and sisters it seems.


Actually, by now, it's all good and that happens with sisters too.

Amongst all this drama,
I manged to get my herb seedlings re-potted
so I would have room now to start the veggie seeds.


When Rylee saw this, she said it looked like something 
that should go on Pinterest. 

I am taking that as a complement from her.


I hope you all had a great weekend.

How come the animals get to sleep while the people get to work? Typical :) B

Sounds like you had a great weekend! (except the lawn mowing part)

It's good to play in the dirt!

I hope you all enjoyed the movie. I probably won't get to see it until it's on the tv.

What a way to kick off a weekend. But mowing?? Your way ahead of us on the greenery. That is incredible and you trees look to be leafing? I wish wish wish, I had started some seedlings too. How do you fit it all in? I feel like a slug, but I did get some hooves done also, along with worming a few. It took me all day to work up the nerve though, and boy does my back hurt today!

She needs to come my way - no bangs here, but I haven't had a haircut in almost a year. Sigh.

Looks like a great weekend - you all were busy!

We mowed our front lawn this weekend too. The grass seems to be the only thing that has started growing here. Still waiting on everything else.
