another beautiful day! thank heavens as i was getting really scared that we would never see spring!
see how the water sparkles in the sun? it's so beautiful and so calming to look at. the brook is much higher and deeper this year due to all of the snow...and it is growing into a small lake at the bottom of it due to a family of beavers taking up residence. but that is how new bodies of water are formed. and we are quite glad to have canada's national symbol living so near us!
breakfast this morning - plain 'ol cape breton lobster rolls!
allright kids - are you sitting down? make sure not to have anything in your mouth! this next picture is the most beautiful thing in the world!
SUNTANNING PO-DAY-DEEZ! woohoo! the potatoe tires are all ready to go and tomorrow is potatoe planting day! i can't wait!
after getting the tires ready - we are planting 40 tires with 5 potatoe plants each for a total of 200 potatoe plants of 4 varieties (red chieftain, russets, canada gold and irish cobblers), and sorting out the potatoe seeds (4th generation potaoes from our garden), it was time for dinner.
that's a tabouleh salad made with quinoa and lobster salad on the side. with grapes - yummeh!
we spent some time today organizing some additional preps, and of course, many hottub dips!
i really know it's spring when jam brings me home new flip-flops - woohoo!
we had a full day outside doing a variety of chores and jam dug up our pea bed as we are getting ready to build our outdoor kitchen where the pea bed was. it is going to be awesome and will give us a place to wash big dishes out in the sun, clean our harvest, can our harvest and just give us some additional room. i can't wait - we'll be starting it soon. it will just be the 2 of us but the man built that giant, honking greenhouse out of windows pretty much by himself - i think he, with my help, can whip up a kicking outdoor kitchen together!
supper tonight - a grilled chicken burger with mushrooms, jalapeno cheese, dressing, lettuce and tomatoe. it was wicked good! next to it - a honking hamburger (i make all of our hamburger patties) with the works - mustard, relish, onion, pepperocinis, lettuce, tomatoe, jalapeno cheese and mushrooms. we were crying after eating and i only ate half of each of mine - we'll be snacking on the rest for the rest of the eve.
well, that's today's update. jam is working (on the computer for LobstersRUs) and i am going to go and catch up on some blogs! hope you all had a fantastic day, too!
(p.s. - Sweet Sandy, we have you all in our prayers! much love to you Gurl! xoxo)
