Some days are meant to be remembered. Today was one. It was a day that you wish you could catch up in a box, and store away, to take out again, from time to time.
To begin with, it was hot, very hot. But hot is good~it means no snow :)

We tried to do the house work early, while it was still cool.
The rest of our day included reading, the baking of herb bread and cinnamon buns, tractor rides (for the littles), gardening (the weeds are still trying to take over!), berry picking up in the field, menu planning for the next week ~I have been making great cooking plans, complete with marinated roast, homemade pasta, stuffed pork chops, and various desserts, etc..
Later after dinner (pasta salad, and some of that bread, made earlier), we headed off up to the pond.
To round off our perfect day Julia made some delicous raspberry smoothies for everyone to enjoy.
"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it"

  6. Your day sounds lovely and decadent at the same time. But it is all the things I love.
