A Fabulous Weekend

The weather here this past weekend was wonderful...hot and sunny without a whole lot of humidity.  It was a great weekend to catch up on yard and garden chores, mowing, weeding, watering and the like and of course to put a little effort into the camper (no it is still not quite ready to go).

I managed to fit in a little knitting time also and made this soft, beautiful hat as a gift for someone special.  It's made with 100% merino wool yarn so even though it's super warm from the wool, it's nice and soft against the skin.

I also baked a little birthday surprise for another someone special in my life...I call it "Upside Down Rhubarb, Strawberry Shortcake"...it was very, very, very, very good.

You can't see it from the picture, but the sugary rhubarb was bubbling up all around the shortcake...mmmm

I thought I'd take some time and make another batch of Rhubarb Relish while the kitchen was already hot also.  We had already finished a jar from the first batch, both agreeing that it was way better than anything store bought.

It's not pretty, but you would not believe the aroma coming from that pot!!!!  The raw ingredients smell terrific but when you add the spices: ginger, pepper, cayenne, allspice and clove...WOWWA!!!!

This past weekend finally felt like the weekends we used to enjoy, there was some work done for sure, but there was also some fantastic leisure time and a few cold beer for good measure.  Hope your weather has been good enough to enjoy the great outdoors too.  TTFN
