All Play, No Work

Wouldn’t that be nice? Of course it’s unrealistic since there’s plenty of work to be done around here every single day and especially this time of year. We always have to work around the weather which, for some reason, seems to get worse every single weekend! It will be perfectly sunny and warm all week and then the weekend comes and here comes the winds, rain and ugh.

I am trying to talk the hubs into using some of his “spare time” making us a path from the front door around to the gardens, similar to this one…

He doesn’t seem quite as enthused about the idea as I am! He’d much rather spend his free time honing his bow hunting skills…

I tried to tell him that he’s already mastered that, but he seems to think he needs more practice! πŸ˜†

Bow hunting season is still a few months away so there’s plenty of time to prepare for that. Speaking of preparations, we are getting ourselves ready to go represent our respective clans at the upcoming Irish heritage festivals going on this summer.

Tartans can be quite spendy if you want the exact one of your particular clan, especially if it’s hand made over in the old country, but we found some that are affordable and match pretty darn well. My skirt is on order now and will be here any day.

Here’s the official tartan for my family clan:

While it’s not exact, it is pretty darned close for a fraction of the price. His was a bit harder to match so we’re still looking but have narrowed down a couple of patterns that are very close. We don’t want to anger our ancestors by accidentally wearing the enemies tartans or something.

We need all the help we can get on this side and the other to make this year’s garden grow! πŸ˜„
