    Primal Fuel
    Sunday

    We went out to the lake to help my Dad lift the mast onto his sailboat.
    10 people, 10 minutes.





    Then we drove out to check on our "shack". we built it 20+ years ago and used to take the kids out there on overnight "camps".
    We haven't been there in a while and it is becoming neglected. This makes me sad.



    The deck and door (this faces a ravine):


    The deck is in really rough shape:


    The view from the deck:

    Inside the shack:




    The kids used to climb in this tree:



    When we came home, we worked in the garden:


    Lily and Josie helped:


    Here Josie is helping to dig the holes for the onions:


    Later she was stealing seeds before my Daughter could cover them.
    Lily was digging up the seed potatoes and stealing them.

    What ever would we do without their help???

    I forgot, on our travels we hunted for asparagus again.



    I worked on my Silent Film drawings.

    I DID NOT OPEN a bottle of wine yesterday!!!
    but I had dark chocolate.

    My "seconds" was a 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries with whipping cream

    Monday

    Today was the LAST DAY with Kraft Dinner student!!!!
    Well, last day at KD's house. I still have to do some marking.
    I dislike marking.

    Most of today was spent on my Silent Movie drawings.
    My concert is next Monday night.
    Nothing like leaving things till the last minute...

    I got the idea to draw these in January. My mind was FULL of ideas. And then I started my ESL AQ and that ate up all my time.
    Now EVERY SINGLE moment is spent with my Bamboo pen in hand...

    I apologize for not reading and posting on everyone's journals. I try to read a few each night, but the saga of Larry Laroo and Sweet Nelly Nicely is sucking up all my free time...


    No wine and no chocolate today!

    Fresh asparagus again tonight!!

    Everybody dislikes marking.

    Being busy every minute beats being bored. And hurray for asparagus!

    We try to have fresh asparagus every day while it's growing.
    And we NEVER pay for it!

    Of course, we never have it the rest of the year...

    At our old house we tried growing asparagus. Never succeeded, because our husky, it turns out, LOVED asparagus! She would nibble down the stalks as quickly as they appeared, and the crowns(is that the right terminology?) were never able to get established. Now that we have different dogs, maybe we should try again.
    Fresh asparagus, how lovely that would be!
