This morning first thing the girls went out in raingear to check out the apple tree – yes, a few growing! Nothing compared to Anita`s orchard (Coldstream Creek), but positively thrilling in our own backyard!
I have always admired my husband`s ability to draw and paint… he can sketch a horse that actually looks like a horse, muscle tone and all!! To me, that is a miracle. I have also always dreamed of having artwork and particularly murals in my home. Here is the start of Kurt`s first mural. The middle section is an invitation for me… my own chalkboard wall!
Our spinach and arugula have gone to seed, but they are still amazingly tasty. I LOVE ARUGULA! Straight out of the garden, so fresh, so bitter, so GOOD! I made salads and crackers for lunch served up with our own frozen pesto from last year. I have never had this amount of homegrown greens. Makes me smile.
The less glamorous part of our day was taking all this junk (old roofing material) to the dump. TWO dump runs in one day = husband gone for 2 x 2 hours, well including stopping in for a coffee date with our neighbor Don – he stopped by this morning with an invitation to coffee with his friends and a message for us: `don`t be lonely`! Thanks Don!
