perfect saturday on the frontier

this weekend, saturday to be more precise was perhaps one of the loveliest days i have had.
k was home, i knew this because when my eyes opened in the morning there he was right next to me
our first full weekend in our new home.  we went out together and did our morning chores, when we came back in i made crepes as i told him about frontier house the pbs special we watched a bit of it, both of us taking it all in knowing that some of what they were living would be our way too.

The sun was out finally and we decided to create a new horse pasture, put in screen windows, clean barn and pick a site for our garden, it was bliss-even though it was work it was humbling and good work, soon the clouds opened up and within a few seconds we were soaked to the bone although it felt more like a reward for our hard work. Later in the evening we were invited to a private dinner and jazz session at a cafe in town, we had such a great time.

i love when work and play balance each other out. I also like when lilacs bloom and your house is filled with their sweet smell.
