It was a welcome break.
Ariana and Daniela helped me with chores this morning.
At 9am, our friend Sally stopped up for a box of veggies.
Onions, garlic, cucumbers, beets and dill.
Finally mowed the back pasture...it is so thirsty!
Daniela listed to some tunes out on the swing.
Gary was into his new project in the little orchard.
The black eyed Susans have arrived in full force.
Kevin dropped Finn and Coop off around 1. They were helping Grampa move some stones, before he drove all four kids into Rochester...they were going to spend a couple of hours at Jen's office.
Later, I got dinner started...Jenny brought a couple of haddock filets that she wanted to grill.
I made BBQued Green Beans....
Mushroom and onions...in wine.
a pear salad....
(above are the finished beans)
Grilled a steak...
Finally it was time to eat.
Everyone but Cooper and me tried the fish. The steak was great.
Our neighbor stopped by with a dozen eggs...so nice when they are fresh. Look at how she put them in the carton.
Dessert was Klondike bars, during which we did a little story telling. I started and we all added to the story. Jenny was laughing so hard at the twists and turns that took place.
Put the ponies in at 9.
Sidney and Seymour kept me company.
