Weekend Wrap Up
We had a very productive weekend, in spite of terrible weather. We had a mini-nor'easter come through Saturday through today and it brought lots of miserable wind, cold temps and rain with just a bit of sleet last night. Good thing I hadn't started any seeds outside!
Still waiting on seeds to arrive, should be today I think, so nothing to post plant-wise until they show up. We did however, have a good ol' redneck weekend.
The older Subaru has been curbside for the past 6-8 months. Mostly because it wasn't a priority since hubby rides his bike to work every day, rain or shine. It didn't need much, just for him to put some belts on, reattach a fan and fluids and working on an exhaust leak. And fuel... LOL it hasn't had fuel in it for a long, long time :)
Loch didn't show much interest in helping, but Finn was all about it.
Note the hammer... can you tell my husband is an F-18 jet mechanic? They aren't known for their gentle touch, instead they are known for working fast, fun with J.B. Weld type compounds and making things work with whatever is around. Make you feel safe? LOL...MacGuyver Mechanic :) One cool thing is that he changes jet tires all day long so he can rotate tires in like 5 seconds LOL! Good thing Subarus are such hardy machines, they can take whatever is thrown at them, even if it's a hammer.
One last step of getting the battery charged and it's road-worthy again ...
Next up was my healthier version of redneck comfort food. Baked chicken with Panko, our own garden's green beans with wild rice.
Not satisfied with ending our Saturday night there, we headed out for some shopping...
For a fun Saturday night we headed to... where else? Northern Tool & Equipment!
Finn covering daddy while he checks out log splitters that are completely unnecessary where we live :)
On to hubby's favorite aisle... he's been trying to come up with a convincing reason he needs one of these for over 3 years now. Someday...!
Crummy weather outside Sunday meant more comfort food. This time I was cooking from jars and was able to use up some of the canned stewed tomatoes...
in a Spicy Chicken Sausage & Bean Soup!
Today hubby is off work so he and Finn are outside in 30 mph winds and 38º temps power washing the house! We haven't done it in about a year and the siding was green, yuck! Not good when you are trying to sell the house, so I'm excited to get that chore checked off the list.
I'm inside for the rest of the day catching up on lots of little things that have been building up around here. I will also be looking for a place to set up my seed starting rack and lights today. I will have to wait until Wednesday to lug out the lights and chains and stuff, we are showing the house tomorrow evening and I don't want the potential buyers to think it's a grow house from the light emanating out of the shutters as they pull up! We don't have too many lookers in this market, so after this showing the paraphernalia is coming out!
I just checked on hubby and Finnegan - it's a good thing there is a lot of that Chicken & Bean soup leftover because they are wet and frigid looking!
