A Productive Weekend...

Tag Enjoys Surveying Our Yard

We accomplished so much over the weekend! On Friday night, I listed all of our empty moving boxes that we'd stored in our machine shed. I put the listing up on Facebook's "Marketplace" advertising over 200 (I know there were more like 300) moving boxes and packing materials, FREE; First come, first served. I was immediately contacted by a police officer from Fond du Lac who came and took all of them by mid-morning Saturday.

I also purchased (and planted) the lavender and chamomile plants I said I wanted to add to our bed next to the house. In addition, I found an Obedient plant, foxglove, and dill plants that I added. That bed is now complete.

Handsome and I tackled the rest of the cardboard in the machine shed to prepare it for our township recycling facility, and that will all go this week.

Add to that, laundry (which I love hanging out on the line); washing windows; and Handsome and me mowing our lawn, I'd say we got quite a lot accomplished.

Sunset Falling Over The Hickory Hill Barns

As the sun set over our barns, we lit up the grill for dinner and reflected on a productive weekend. We'll be making a new list for this week. (I've made up another set of spice racks that we'll install soon; and we need to add shelves in our clothes closets, too.) 
I'll be shipping out Etsy orders this morning, and I will be sewing by the end of the week - if not sooner. I'm looking forward to another joyful week on the farm.
