Friday I laid down some cardboard and covered it with soil. I do want another layer on there as it's not thick enough yet but there's only so much I can shovel in a day. We haven't finished the greenhouse yet due to bad timing around wind/rain and rest. Seems whenever the weather is co operating, our bodies aren't and vice versa. Hopefully we'll get to it soon.
Saturday I made a loaf of GF bread, and some sunshine in a jar, aka Lemon Curd. I love how bright and lovely lemon curd is and the day I make some with my own eggs, my own lemons, and my own butter...well that's the day I know I've succeeded in this whole homestead thing.
Saturday night Hugslut and I went to the legion hall to watch the local players group put on their annual xmas thing. It was a bunch of lipsynching and a couple of skits. Definitely glad we went but I was NOT expecting 3 whole hours on hard narrow chairs.
Sunday was just R&R.
Tonight we went out and picked up a couple buckets and a couple hay bales for future endeavours, but earlier today I grabbed my rubber boots, orange vest, and some willow shoots, and took a walk through the back planting potential willow trees as I went. I literally just poked them in the mud where ever I felt like it. If they don't take, no real effort wasted, but if they do take, awesome.
