Around Here: Easter Weekend

Two weekends ago Cale worked at the Architecture firm till late on Friday and all day Sunday.

Two Saturdays ago Meg’s ankles swelled up for the first time (21 weeks and counting!) from cleaning out the milk barn all day and, helping Cale cleanup the yard and flowerbeds from a long winter.

BUT this Saturday, we had our first big bonfire with friends.

This Saturday we got lost under our favorite tree (in front of our house) playing old school yard games.

Killed about 300 301 Mayflies (RIP). :(

Took the tops off our cold frames and built a third raised bed (bring on the hot weather plants)!

Went to our first Easter Sunday service with Little Noodle (Meg cried).

And added venison to our fall menu (taken from a friends night cam on our family property)! :)

It was a beautiful weekend and just what we needed to remind ourselves what all this “work” is for. There are a lot of people who love the idea of owning land, but it’s also a lot of work! Your weekends are full maintaining and updating the property, on top of working a full-time job, running a home based business, staying on top of household chores, and all that other stuff you have to do as an adult. There are small moments we relish the idea of a city plot where mowing takes 30 minutes (with a push mower), but then we have weekends like these and we’re reminded just why we could never live anywhere else.

Here’s to many more summer nights under our favorite tree, slow Sundays with family meals, and wondering how it will all be different next year when we have a little one running around.

Happy (late) Easter Weekend everyone!
