Rewarding ourselves

Saturday night, Rick and I discussed what to do on Sunday. We had a lot of work to do around the place - mowing, weeding, whacking, etc., and the weather was supposed to be cooperative. But since Rick wasn't on call, he also had a hankering to do something fun as a family. We agreed that we should get up and work hard, and then could head to the coast for a special dinner at an Italian restaurant owned by one of his clients and some beach time.

Everything went according to plan, except when we got to the beach we discovered Rick hadn't put all the coats in. He chivalrously gave me his jacket (to wear over Maia!) so Brian and I could go beachcombing; the wind was too chilly to go without so he stayed in the car.

Brian and I had a lovely walk, discovered some treasures, and enjoyed the setting sun. (I got snap-happy with the camera, of course; proof below.) A safe drive home, animals fed, and our own cozy beds completed a most excellent day.


That's Sunday's report from . . .

How lovely! It's so important to include non-farm, non-working time!

Love the sunset - I don't get to see many from my house! The shells are very cool too - I used to have a very large shell collection when I was younger, but have no idea where it went when I got married!
