Weekends



It's been a wonderful, lazy weekend.
We've had sprinkles of snow that coat the trees like powdered sugar.
It has all melted now.
Saturday brought eggs benedict for breakfast, chicken tortilla soup for lunch and pizza and wings for dinner.
All homemade {of course}.
Laundry is caught up, my house is clean again.  The boys will be too before monday comes.
This morning arrived with the wonderful smell of waffles and bacon cooking.
The chickens of Cobble Hill received a gift of warm leftover waffles for breakfast.
They, in turn, provided a gift of a dozen easter-colored eggs.
I'll be making Jay his favorite homemade chocolate cake trifle tonight.
He is, after all, my valentine.
I've been thinking about some of the books I'd like to read this year.
Here they are, in no particular order:

  • Voluntary Simplicity by the Northwest Earth Institute
  • The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food and Love by Kristen Kimball
  • Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity From A Consumer Culture by Shannon Hayes
  • Home: A Novel by Marilynne Robinson
  • Less Is More: Embracing Simplicity For A Healthy Planet...by Cecile Andrews and Wanda Urbanska
  • Bringing It To The Table:  On Farming and Food by Wendell Berry
  • Make Your Place: Affordable and Sustainable Nesting Skills by Raleigh Briggs
How was your weekend?  What books are you looking forward to reading?

It certainly sounds like you have been eating well this weekend. I must say I'm very jealous that the house is clean. I think I'd need about a five day weekend to get that up to par. Hope you have a great week.
