Great weekend

It was a fabulously beautiful weekend as far as the weather was concerned!  Coolish, almost cold nights, and warm and sunny days with a steady breeze.  The perfect weather for pulling fence down in the field. Well, kinda :*) The electric net was stuck in the tall grass down there and it was a slow and steady (sometimes painful) backbreaking time getting it untangled from the grass and rolling it up.  It was not a fun job, but the field desperately needs to be mown.

Yesterday, however, was a totally fun day.  A few of us got together for an afternoon of spinning fun and some lunch along with it.  We had a great time out on Hatchtown Farm‘s screened porch, visited with the sheep, and actually got a whole lot of spinning accomplished.  It was a relaxing day full of good company and good food.  And Gemma the Golden Doodle kept us company, as well as a nonchalant eye on the food table.

Now it’s back to getting ready for the first “official” day back at work, Wednesday.  I have not gotten used to sleeping in at all during the summer, but I don’t usually get up at 4:15, either!  5:30 has been my hour of choice for most of August.  Ah well, it will take a little time to get into the routine again, but the year is marching on.  (I can tell by the way my husband angsts over the almanac information each morning on the weather, which notes how many hours and minutes of daylight we have lost since the summer solstice!).  I may actually be doing chores in the dark already!
