On Tuesday, with our house guest gone, we were able to get out to the mill again. While the puppy was here, he wanted no part of our work area. Jim was working with the skidsteer to tidy up the yard and the puppy wasn’t impressed with the noise. I wouldn’t leave him in the house alone, he would only cry and paw at the glass door, so Jim was flying solo.
On Monday morning we got a call from the store that sells our folding bench/picnic tables to tell us they sold the last one and could we bring another.
It has been raining off and on since Sunday so no work on outdoor projects, but it is a good time to get caught up on our indoor projects.
If you remember, we picked blueberries a few weeks ago.
Good morning on this hot, humid Monday in Nova Scotia. We finally got a little rain but it brought humid conditions with it. We spent Saturday catching up on the little things that haven’t been getting done. Jim worked at a neighbours fixing her windows after ordering the parts a few weeks ago. And this happened…again…
This weekend Jim was feeling much better but the weather didn’t cooperate enough for us to be productive on our outdoor projects. Two more days of rest never hurt anyone I always say.
Hey, we are still alive, or better yet Jim is.

Made some hamburger buns back on the 15th. Turned out pretty good. Its a basic white bread dough recipe; mix into a dough, rest for 1 hour, form into balls onto pan, rest 30 mins, press a little bit flat, rise again until ready to bake.
