My last April vacation week ever! The best part? The Peepers are back! (I love those little guys and wait for them each spring).
Otherwise, the weather has totally cooperated, and there was a lot of activity around here. I really wanted to do some fun things with friends, but I also really needed to get some house and paddock work done.
Today my son and I did some alternative cattle panel fencing and gate moving for the boy goats and Jingle the donkey. That took awhile, and afterward we ran an errand, and kept going down to Pemaquid Point lighthouse. It was a fantastically beautiful day. The sun was warm, the breezes were stiff, and the sky was as blue as ever. We ended up in Damariscotta to make a Reny’s run, and then I went to the chiropractor. After that, I had a lovely rest in the sun and I got some reading in. Spent some time this afternoon with the goats, and then took a lovely bath.
Most of the week has been organizing and cleaning out spaces like the mudroom (ugh!). We are selling one of our giant chest freezers, and it took the day on Tuesday to clean out, organize and re-assign items to other freezers. But it’s done!
Yesterday I spent the day in Portland with some friends, and we had a fantastic lunch at Paciarino, then went to Standard Baking Company, Micucci’s Italian grocery, and then to Trader Joe’s. Exhausting but fun!
Tomorrow will prove to be somewhat boring. I still have to clean out and re-organize the lower pantry cupboard cabinets in the mudroom. It will be a relief to get it done and over with, however! There is much more organizing to do in the house, but this was a great start. And the week isn’t over yet, so more fun to come, I hope!
