My Achy Bones.....
This orb weaver web looked kind of creepy in the fog, so I just had to take a photo. He/she makes an appearance throughout the day.
By late evening, Hubby and I made progress. The only casualties we endured were blisters, sore muscles and achy bones. Oh, and I broke the sledge hammer (sad face). It was only about 3-4 years old too. Guess we are buying a new one. Hubby accused me of breaking it so we could stop for the night. Ha ha, he's so funny.
I am so worn out and tired, I wasn't sure I had the strength to lift my hands to blog this morning. We also knocked out some boards on the sides. Before the barn work, I spent all day weeding my herb garden (which I need to finish up today).
Barn treasures! While I was knocking out the bottom level, and Hubby was on the upper, I found these. My long lost tape measure that was typically kept for house use, and Hubby's hammer. They were in the old goat stall area.
I don't typically make soup on such a warm day, but the morning was cool, and got me in the mood. And I needed a dinner that would be ready quickly when Hubby got home. It is a new recipe (from the pile), and is pretty self sufficient (other than the Worcestershire sauce), so I think I'll keep it.
If my achy bones and muscles recuperate today, and I get time, I will post the recipe.
