This past weekend we celebrated my honey’s birthday.
We started the celebration early by attending the Vermont Flow Show on Friday where we got a small taste of spring and attended a wonderful workshop on growing and cultivating herbal medicine bushes.
The session was extremely informative and the presenter Julie Mitchell was very knowledgeable and sharing. I wish we could have attended some of the other workshops, but we needed to attend to a few other things on the birthday wish list.
Saturday we went to look at puppies and run a few errands. We spent the evening curled up together under quilts on the couch watching old movies — what a great way to spend an evening.
Sunday was spent with our respective books in each other company enjoying the wood stove heat. I also spent a bit of time making the requested birthday dinner: beefless stew, fougasse stuffed with chopped olives and lots of fresh herbs and ended the meal with a Greek yogurt cheesecake topped with strawberries (this time of year I had to use some frozen strawberries I had in the freezer from last season).
… What an enjoyable chore-free weekend.
