We have had a splendid week outdoors. Lots of yard work, hanging laundry, and sitting on the patio folding it with a beautiful view to my courtyard garden.
We had some yummy sausage, egg, & cheese biscuits one morning for breakfast. What a hit they were! They are the *best* when they are homemade-with-love.
We are harvesting the last of our lettuces, spinach, and chard. I need to find a different spot for them next year to try and extend their season. I will be planting more of these salad greens when the weather cools down a bit.
I am hoping that my sweet hubby will build me some of these in the coming weeks........My vegetable garden is ready for them, yay! We have decided to build a custom chicken coop to fit into a different area of the yard. I have a lovely area in my enclosed courtyard garden where we can have the chickens, and they can scratch around during the day protected from our dogs. We will be a little closer to them and better able to enjoy them too.
I am busy, busy, busy today packing for our weekend camping trip. What excitement! We are going with a large group of neighbors and friends. There will be 19 children and 12 adults. Today I am finishing with the food preparations and freezing as much as I can to act as ice would in the coolers. The temperatures are supposed to be in the 90's where we are going, hot by our standards here is Washington State. I can hardly wait to leave in the morning.
I pray that you all have a blessed weekend! Enjoy your sweet treasures, and I will fill you in with all of the camping fun next week. In God's Love, Tami
