It’s a rainy Sunday a good day to get some things done.

WOOD HAY AND THE SEWING EXCHANGE ALL IN  ONE DAY

What a day I was exhausted from it.  Up at the crack of dawn and down to FLorence by 8am.  I didn’t know what to expect but was really pleased by the crowds and next year I will know exactly what to bring.   Susan came up from Ashby and we both had a good day.The Lovely ladies from WOol and Dye WOrks were there and everyone from the CHurch were so helpful.

HAY

It's a good feeling to have a barn full of hay.

I was only home an hour before Josh called for the hay.  50 bales are tucked in the barn  I really have been fortunate to meet some wonderful people and Josh and his family are some of them.  When they found out that I would be out of hay before they could come his Dad came over with three bales to get me through.

Wood

Mike came about an hour after that with wood.  It will take me about 2 weeks to get it stacked on the porch.  Good exercise for me.  I will do a little every day.  Mike grows shiitake  mushrooms and left me with a small bag of them.  I am going to use them in a stir fry tonight..  He is also making the large knitting needles that I sell.  This year I am going to have him make a smaller version of them and try them out knitting a scarf  I think it will be good.  Easier to manage.

NEW FREEZER

David took me to get a new freezer on Friday.  The last flood ruined my old one.  And  now I will use it to store grain in.  I hope to reduce my trips into Greenfield this winter by stocking up on all supplies.  The freezer is on the porch till I move some things around in the kitchen to make room for it.

This past week has been a whirlwind of activity.  We had a simple but beautiful service for my Mom on Monday with my friend Vicar Jane officiating.  Still some loose ends to tie up but I am hoping that this week the pace of life will slow down here at the farm.  I will be doing another box of tomatoes now that I have the freezer and hope to do more pickles and some pickled beets this week.  

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you enjoy the day.   Carole
