A Wonderful Weedend

It's hard to believe the great temperatures we had this weekend. Temperatures in the 60's and 70's are a treat for February that we took full advantage of. I started laundry Saturday morning and it was wonderful to sleep on sun kissed sheets. 
I couldn't wait to play in the dirt.  Two of the raised beds were cleaned out and planted. 
Those early spring crops of peas, lettuce, spinach and carrots are now tucked away until spring is here to stay. 
Besides work there was time to play. 
While I puttered in the garden Chuck cleaned up this fallen branch and cut other branches off a tree that has died. 
After dinner and showers it was still 60* at 7pm. A trip to DQ was a nice treat. 
Sadly that didn't end our evening. When we cleaned up for dinner Chuck keep saying it felt like something was in his eye. I put drops in his eye and we flushed it out several times. No matter what we did it still hurt. He finally said he thought he should be seen. A trip to the ER determined there was nothing in his eye but he did have a cornea abrasion.  He was given meds and should be fine in a couple of days. He wore safety glasses while cutting on the tree and thinks he might have gotten some sawdust in his eye when he brushed it out of his hair before coming inside. That made for a late night. 

Sunday afternoon we did a little hiking.
Everywhere I looked this weekend I found signs of spring. From the birds we heard migrating north to the flowers popping up. 
We capped this wonderful weekend off with a fire. 
I know winter isn't over but I certainly enjoyed this taste of spring.

May your day be filled with joy in the journey!  


  1. I hope Chuck's eye discomfort clears up. Looks like that would be a great homeschool science class - a nature hike. Have you considered any science curriculum yet? We loved Jeannie Fulbright's Exploring Creation science series from Apologia -

  2. Glad all turned out well for your hubby! Overall, what a great weekend you had. We are having lovely weather too!

  3. Hope Chuck's eye gets better soon. Love your garden plots! Have a great week.

  4. Such a productive weekend!
    All happy things...
    Minus the ER trip!
    Prayers his eye is all better soon.
    Have a cozy week!

  5. We enjoyed a lovely warm weekend too! Hope his eye heals quickly! Have a great week!


  6. I'm glad you all had a nice weekend.
    Poor Chuck, I've had a scratched cornea and it hurts.

  7. Sorry about Chuck. Hope he heals quick. I enjoyed reading your weekend. It seemed wonderful even with a bump.

  8. Praying for Chuck's eye to heal quickly. Other than that it sounds like a perfectly lovely weekend to me!

  9. Aww get well soon Chuck. What a lovely weekend you had.

  10. We are having really warm temps here as well, but I know winter is gonna come again soon. Cooler temps are in the for cast this weekend. I'm definitely enjoying the touches of Spring when they come.
    Sorry about the ER visit and so glad it wasn't severe. Praying it heals quickly.
    Nature hikes are wonderful, aren't they? And a bon fire is just a perfect way to end the weekend! How nice!

    Enjoy your week, Wendi!

    Hugs, Amy
