Hubby works at home instead of his usual commute. He likes to take a break by making a barbecue for lunch. Nice and simple, just some good quality sausages and bread. A little homemade relish, you know, the typical barbecue kind of business..
Flower chains are highly important weekend business. This is the eldest's thing.
After adorning the (amazingly co-operative!) pooch, she turns her craft to her own locks..
Although I suppose having a mother who wishes for a garden full of flowers so that she can dye wool must seem equally funny to her at times too..
This weekend was the time to attend to the business of spinning wheel maintenance. A good clean and polish all over and a thorough oiling in all of the moving parts has seen this wheel fit for a winter season's use..
Pulling out rhubarb and gifting some to a friend..
..who was kind enough to share some of her family's homegrown apples with me last week is all part of weekend business here..
What to make, what to make? I think we both are thinking of apple and rhubarb crumbles for our dinner tables. Good, hearty comfort food made with fresh, local ingredients. I can think of nothing better for the business of weekend baking. What's your favourite way to cook with rhubarb?
Pausing a game of practice netball to attend to the very important task of picture taking is nothing unexpected here. Thankfully it only takes a moment and the game is quickly resumed. First to shouts of happiness, then the usual sisterly bickerings and then, with a little intervening, back to team play once again. This age is certainly proving to be a roller coaster ride, both for those going through it and those on the sidelines! *sigh*
Fires are happening and it's a nice feeling to have a good amount of homegrown timber to use. This wood has been cut and split by hubby after we had several large trees fall down last year. We have four rows of firewood just like the one above. Yes, a good fire is very important weekend business here! Maybe the most important of all!
I hope the weekend was good to you out there!
