The sun was out Sunday morning for a beautiful Mother's Day. Though the wind was still rocking the trees in the woods, splattering white, billowy clouds across the sky.
Sue had wonderful conversations with both Jill and Lucas during the afternoon. After she finished up chatting with Lucas, I got a fire going in the wood stove. The wind was still fierce, and with dark clouds obscuring the previous bright sunlight, the temperature had already dropped from the low 50s and was predicted to go into the mid 40s overnight. A great time for a fire in the wood stove!
I poured out some wine for us, and we sat in the living room playing backgammon and just relaxing until we had to go in and get dinner going.
While Sue had chatted earlier with Lucas, I had got most of the dinner prep work done. With the roasted fresh basil and thyme pork loin, I was fixing stir fried thyme and brown sugar carrots, and Sue was doing baked potatoes and onions. So, by the time she freed up with Lucas, I had the carrots, garlic, onions, basil, and the rub for the pork loin all set.
Hopefully, it was a really nice, relaxing day for Sue!
What a difference a day makes up here on the mountain! Yesterday at this time there was 5 inches of snow across the yard; now it's as green as it could be!
Getting the carrots ready.
I'm in full gear here trying to get all of the prep work done while Sue is on the phone with her kids.
After playing some backgammon, we headed into the kitchen where Sue, after getting the potatoes ready, took up her post in the window seat with her wine.
Carrots are almost done!
Ready to have dinner together. Happy Mother's Day, Sue!
