This weekend just flew by, right?
I didn’t plan to go completely unplugged this weekend, but it was wonderful to not turn on my computer. I didn’t blog OR read blogs, check my email, get on Facebook…nothing. And the world didn’t stop turning ;)
We had beautiful weather this weekend and definitely took advantage of it.
After finishing our normal Saturday morning routine (breakfast, coffee, and cuddling with Maggie), I headed out for groceries before we took Maggie out for the afternoon.
Is that not the happiest puppy face you’ve ever seen?
Nick and I walked around Glen Alton with Maggie for 3 hours on Saturday, and she had a blast.
She found lots of dead animals, bones, trash, and she went swimming!
I couldn’t have asked for a better day. The temperature was perfect, and we took our time walking around, playing with Maggie, and snapping pictures.
I can’t wait until the house is finished. They’re restoring the old houses on the farm and they’ll be open to visitors once all the work is done.
Nick and I would love to move in here ;) There are trails all over the property and I couldn’t imagine having this place as my home…but we can dream about it.
Let’s see – other highlights of the weekend?
I finally got to the end of that jar!!!
I made some apple oatbran to have in my White chocolate wonderful jar…and I think I need to cut myself off for a while. I went through that jar way too fast! I need to finish some other ones before buying this flavor again.
It was tasty :)
I also made my best loaf of sourdough to date –
Our house smelled like freshly baked bread all afternoon on Sunday. There really isn’t anything better unless you also have cookies in the house (which we do).
I made a batch of supercharge me cookies with a dried berry blend instead of the chocolate chips, and they turned out great! I love chocolate in cookies so I wasn’t sure how much I would like them. But…seeing that I had 6 (!) of them yesterday afternoon…I’d say they’re good ;)
I also tried the Tropical Fruit Tart Larabar – I finally found it!
I’m pretty sure this is my favorite now. I LOVE the orange flavor in it, and the dried pineapple gives it a great texture.
And Sunday’s breakfast was probably the best meal I had all weekend.
We got some freshly smoked salmon that our friends smoked THEMSELVES, so Nick made us omelets. I don’t know how he makes such perfect omelets – mine always break!
This had feta, smoked salmon, black olives, scallions, and parsley. Yum. Too bad we already ate all of the smoked salmon they gave us….I need some more!
So…that was my weekend!
How was yours? What did you do or eat or see this weekend?
I have to say…I’m prett
y sad it’s Monday already…
