I couldn’t wait to show Madison so she could whip some up for me. :) I haven’t tried them yet but Madison slept in them last night and they worked great! They were comfy too.
Lovely weather here today! I have mowed the back yard, weeded the asparagus, cabbage, kale, zucchini, and cucumbers, and helped Madison rip the carpet out of the girls’ bedroom. The flooring needed replaced because of a leaky bathtub. Quentin and McKenzie picked some laminate up at Home Depot yesterday morning, and he wants to start putting it down this evening.
I have really let time get away from me lately, so I will share lots of pictures from the last few weeks that I meant to share with you. Guess I have just been having too much fun playing in the garden. :)
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Happy Memorial Day!
Spring has arrived in full force this past week with warm temps during the day and cool nights perfect for sleeping with the window open. We even had rain and a thunderstorm Monday night to help the garden along.
Quentin went back to work from vacation on Monday. He got in lots of cooking and fishing.
And spring just wouldn’t be the same without new life. We have two chickens setting, and we’re hoping for baby chicks soon. Goat kids will be born around the 14th of June. I can hardly wait!
We had a nice spring break on Jekyll Island. I think it might be the quietest, most peaceful place on earth. We stayed at the Jekyll campground. We slept like babies in our tent with the cool breeze blowing through listening to the sounds of nature. The campground is just a hop, skip, and a jump to Driftwood beach(our favorite), the pier, and the Horton house.
Here are some pictures from our spring break.
Enjoy each and every day!
It’s a rainy day in Floyd. The rain is supposed to stick around for a few days. It is still spring, though, and spring is beautiful.
Creeping phlox are blooming on the hillside. The peach tree is as well.
We had a nice, sunny weekend. I got the yard mowed and did some weed-eating.
Dandelions have taken over the front yard, and violets are growing through out the goat field. We love weeds and harvested a bunch to make jelly. :)
We have been making dandelion jelly for years. It is lovely and tastes a lot like honey. This year I used the recipe and tutorial found here. It turned out perfectly and set up just like jelly.
The violet jelly turned out so pretty. Madison did it on her own from start to finish. I was really surprised at how yummy it tastes! The recipe she used is here.
