One of the reasons it was so fun is I had some visitors.
Specifically, this little one greeted me first thing Saturday morning:We started the day with a walk and stumbled onto quite the site - a mama red tailed hawk with her babies high up in a tree
followed several hours later (after naps for everyone) by pizza for dinner
The next day we took things a little easier and played on my roof to take in the view
including baked eggs and bran muffins Saturday morning and oatmeal Sunday morning
baked asparagus, pork chops, this salad (minus the steak) and mushroom risotto
(which was almost a disaster when I realized I somehow left the arborio rice off my grocery delivery order but google came to the rescue and I learned pearl barley is a good substitute, which I happend to have on hand!) with banana bread with cinnamon whipped cream for dessert. Delicious - if I do say so myself.
I just wish the weekend hadn't flown by so quickly because this morning I crashed hard into reality with lots of work and much cooler temperatures.
