This weekend was full, in a good way. It began Saturday morning with a soap workshop, hosted by Life at Nature's Pace, in my home. A small group of ladies gathered in my kitchen, and while we drank tea and chatted, I shared the ins and outs of cold process soap making. It was a great way to spend the morning, and as always the joy I receive from teaching a workshop left me feeling inspired and motivated. The rest of the day was spent around the house, tidying, and puttering, and the evening was spent with a friend, enjoying dinner.
Sunday morning was a little dark around these parts with the time change, and so we took it slow. After a late pancake breakfast we hit the trails for some fresh air. As soon as our feet hit the trail we heard the call of the red winged black bird. What a beautiful sound, a sure sign that spring is definitely on its way. We also heard a ton of chickadees, and saw our first robins. We stopped at the water to toss some stones before heading back to the car, and home. The afternoon was spent in the yard. Reece let the chickens out to roam, and had fun chasing them around, and I started to do a little spring yard tidy up. It felt so good to be outside, working in the yard, and enjoying a mild almost spring day. Both Reece and I were tired by the time Sunday night rolled around. He passed out pretty quickly, much earlier than his usual bedtime, and I wasn't far behind.
How was your weekend?
