Just checking in here.
It was one of those weekends that BUSY spilled over to Monday and now I breathe.
I enjoyed all the comments on the blogiversary post, I love hearing from you! You still have until Thursday to comment there.
I don't often find a time that everything I want to do is booked for that same day, but that's what happened on Saturday. First we headed to The Great Big Garage Sale. As you can see from the link it is massive. Unfortunately I scored very little, there was so much of everything and I saw many things walking out the door that I was looking for. A few books, a vintage bingo game (you can still entertain a group of computer-crazed kids with simple games occasionally, really you can) came home but I'm very selective about what I bring into the house these days.
Then we headed to Everdale Farm. Longtime readers may remember when we went for the Straw Bale House Tour there (can't find this post on my own blog to save my life!) It was Seedy Saturday, and there were heritage, and organic seeds to buy and trade and plants and a BioIntensive Gardening Workshop, which dissolved into a Lasagne Gardening discussion, which may have been my fault (and therefore your's Norma!)
I am now armed and ready!
The Downtown Knit Collective Spring Frolic was also Saturday but there are only so many hours in the day and I had used them up. I did however, modestly console myself with yarn from elann.com.
Sunday was spent at Littlest's Horse Show.
I am going to have to find a new moniker for her, aren't I? She looks all grown up! I'm a sucker for all the tradition of horse shows. They all looked so beautiful dressed up. She won two ribbons so she was pleased. It was a larger group than she had ever competed against. The rest of us watching also took something home, sunburnt faces. It's surprising what you don't notice when there is a cold wind....
And back at home, the first bonfire supper of the season (well, the first ever at this house) Sausages and marshmallows were roasted and eaten, while the large trout in the pond were jumping! They may be next to fry...

Here's another found object hanging from a tree, this jawbone. Found in the woods or hunting souvenir, I wonder.
And just because it's pretty neat, a little fungi to finish off.
No wait, wait, a horse's hind end... to end!
