WeekendingPosted: May 14, 2012
This weekend was amazing! We did so very much and had such a great time. I got completely spoiled for Mother’s Day. Tile for my project, plants for the yard and a bottle of good Gin for when the best job in the world has a rough day. For the most part, I spent the weekend working on the tile floor in the yurt. It’s going slower than I thought it would (typical) but it’s turning out beautiful.
Frank processed the first seven of his chickens. I intended on watching him do at least one bird, but I chickened out. A few years ago, we processed some turkeys and I could never bring myself to eat them. I preserved my nerves and was able to eat the most magnificent chicken enchiladas that I’ve ever tasted last night. Frank was very proud of raising the meat that was on our table, and I was proud of him. It’s a big deal lessening our dependence on the grocery store for all of our needs.
Here’s the first progress shots of the tile floor. I figure most of the week will be spent in the yurt tiling the floor. For some reason, I thought I should make a self-imposed deadline of May 25th to complete the floors. Frank’s parents will be in town for the weekend and I really wanted beautiful floors to show them. We shall see if it was a great plan that gets me done in a hurry or if it’s unnecessary pressure that I put on myself. Time will tell.
