Cooler weather means we got to spend a lot of time outdoors this weekend. Friday night we spent a couple of hours in the garden, getting the pesky weeds back under control and doing some harvesting (more on that later). Saturday evening we went to a BBQ with friends from the Bike Month committee right down the road. Our hosts, J and R, are a few years older than us and have the kind of backyard we’d love to have in the not-too-distant future. A huge garden, a chicken coop with four laying hens, lots of trees (including a beautiful willow), a fire pit, a large workshop, and a beautiful sitting area with lights strung up in the trees. It was a potluck style BBQ with lots of local foodies, so of course, the food was amazing.
Sunday, my Aunt Liane and Uncle David invited us up to their farm for a little engagement celebration. It’s always fun visiting their rustic 200-acre farm, going for hikes on their property, and visiting with their (huge!) dogs.
