Hello dear ladies..
Another little farm diary post for you..
Terry and I went out to the farm yesterday and as we neared the lane we noticed we had a couple of visitors..
I think they just dropped in for a quick lunch... grin..
This is the first time we have noticed any of these beautiful Canadian Geese around the farm..
We were a bit late arriving and there was so much to do..
I noticed the Trilliums that I picked on our drive on Saturday are still alive and well.. smile..
Thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post about the drive..
Love having you girls comment on the Face Book page, too..
One of the first things I did was to water my plants..
Each time we go I try to take a couple..
Usually when we go to the cottage for the summer I just put most of them on the back step where it is shady and just let the rain look after them..
This year since we will be at the farm I think I just want to have some around, I guess..
I still need to take my Pregnant Onion, Prayer Plant and Star of Bethlehem as they are my faves ..
I will wait though until we get back from Newfoundland to take them..
Terry mowed the lawn for the first time this season..
Lots of dandelions, eh?
I have been wanting to change the curtains in the kitchen for some time and finally accomplished that little task..
Hard to see but they are just the lace ones that I bought when we did the PEI yard sale last summer..
They were only two dollars..
I have so many things I want to do to this kitchen but it will have to wait until we get more important things finished first..
Like herb beds, garden, pens for the birds, the front stoop fixed and such..
All in good time, I am sure..
Terry ordered this up for lunch from the Farm House Kitchen..
He bought the broccoli especially you know..
Lemon Broccoli Pasta...
I have posted this several times as it is one that he actually requests and our grandsons love it..
Normally, he just wants whatever I cook..
So he says, anyway..
Find recipe HERE..
Looking out the windows you can see how much greener and lovely it is getting here in the Maritimes...
A ways to go yet, of course..
The maples have not come out in full leaves yet or the oak and so on..
This is a little chair seat cover I bought at the Thrift for the rocking chair..
Someone had hooked it and never used it..
I think it may have been meant to hang but I find it comfy to sit on..
Before and after lunch I worked at cleaning out and sorting lots of stuff that was stored in the little front entry way.. It is like a little wee porch... It has two windows and two doors..
I have requested from our sons that they put me in a wood screen door for the Summer..
I still didn't get the curtain rods but the vintage valances will be going there.. Soon..
When that was finished I made up a pan of squares as I was looking for my Mom and Step Father to come for a visit..
Another rhubarb recipe..
Rhubarb Dream Bars..
I found it here on the web and just wrote it down ...
Sort of .. grin..
Let's just say that I am not making them again...
They were just too stinking good...
Terry ate almost half a pan at once....
We just don't need that kind of heaven.. grin..
After Supper we headed home ...
The sun is going down and once again I am tired...
This poor old gal just ain't what she used to be..
Today we had a town day and tomorrow, Lord willing, we are headed to St. Martins to get the cottage hooked up and the yard cleaned and mowed..
All in a day's work but it is the kind we enjoy..
Can't wait to see the Bay of Fundy and find out if it missed me..
Thank you so much for your loyalty dear friends in coming here and reading my rants and raves..
Blogger is giving me stitches by not putting my post in the RSSfeed..
It doesn't show up in Reader for almost a day...
Then tonight I could not load up my photos for awhile..
You will see it when you see it, I guess..
God bless you sweet girls..
