Saturdays…

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Oh, how I love Saturdays.  Under the strict law of our care-taking contract, I am obligated to stay home all day Saturday, to give tours to visitors who come during our open hours of 11-5pm.  It's so awesome to have to do exactly what it is that you want to do; which in this case, is hanging out on the Homestead, greeting people, showing them around, gardening, and drinking iced-tea.  It's really lovely.

This Saturday, our friend Mani came to play, while his mom tabled at Garden City Local Fest downtown.  We had a lot of fun.  Mani is really into doing "chores", so we put him to work.

Our plum trees are blooming like crazy.  This is the time of year when you can't waste a second inside.  Before you know it, all of those sweet little blossoms will be gone with the wind...

Some patches of edible vegetation.  Greens!  Can't wait to eat something fresh from the garden.  Wow, the best season out of four is finally here!  I'm in love...

Axel celebrated his 2nd birthday last week.  I can hardly believe that two years ago, I gave birth to this kind little soul right here on the Homestead.  Amazing.  Andy recently made a movie about the Homestead.  It's mostly shot during my pregnancy with little Ax-man.  And, actually, has a bit of labor footage in it, which totally freaked me out.  He didn't tell me about it before posting it on youtube, which I'm actually glad about now, because I would never have let him do it, had I known.  But, it's really beautiful, and I'm glad about that.  You can check it out here, or on the sidebar of this blog.  It's called Sun Before Arises.
