Yesterday was one of those days that you just get a lot accomplished. The weather was perfect - sunny but cool and a nice breeze blowing to keep the biting midges away. We split and stacked wood, harvested garden veggies, canned sweet pickles, made 3 loaves of bread, baked a double chocolate zucchini cake, and finished the day with a fantastic garden pizza (and a nice glass of wine).
Chris even found time to do some painting; the first time he's had the easel out since we moved here. Nice to see we're doing some stuff for pure pleasure as opposed to just working on completing the house all the time. Yesterday actually gave me a feel for what life will be like once the house is finished. Normal maintenance tasks combined with projects that feed your soul.
Exactly what we hoped for when we started this adventure.
