Weekend Review

Happy Monday, friends! It was oddly warm here this morning, so warm, in fact, that I took my morning coffee out to the garden and sat there while Huxley played  next to me in the sandbox, plotting all kinds of things for spring. I’ll take any little warm snap Mother Nature cares to send, thank you very much.

This weekend was great. All of the nastiness from last weekend had moved on out, replaced this go ’round with:

*Adorable chicken coops (with planted fruit trees, too!) and scenic hillside garden views.
*Rich & Jen‘s “creampuff” tractor.
*Fire-side sipping of Rich’s homemade lemonade spiked with Troy & Sons hooch.
*Homemade baguettes (Rich is a seriously talented bread-baker).
*Banh Mi!
*Piebox was the PERFECT means of transporting my Coconut Cream Pie.
*Baby daikon at the Saturday downtown farmer’s market.
*Gorgeous radishes, too.
*Root vegetables galore, the theme for the gathering I held Sunday at Small Terrain.
Good friends, good eats, good community connections formed. I love weekends like this.

Here’s hoping the week ahead brings nothing but health and happiness to you and yours!
