Finally a nice clear sunny day. The past 2 have been very dreary, rainy and cold. This is the stream that borders our property. Most of the time you can't hear it running and then when we have a big rain it roars by the house. I do like the sound of the stream when it is running.
Rich spent Friday and Saturday working on cleaning down trees on the property and burning them. This is the tree that came down before Xmas at the top of the driveway. the ground was too soft for him to get the trunk out.
  I spent the weekend cooking and stitching. I know that there is some housework that I should be doing.
For lunch yesterday I made the Pioneer Woman's Cauliflower soup. YUM!  The recipe make a big pot of soup. It was perfect for a cold day. I will definitely make this again.
Poor Rich, I am making him eat all these different things. When we first got married he would never have eaten this!

Then since I had some half & half left I made a batch of scones. I think that they didn't come out well but Rich is happy, I shouldn't be eating them anyway. I will have to search for another recipe.
This morning we woke up to a clear sunny day so we went for a hike. I am still trying to hike once a week. I would like to do more but my schedule doesn't allow it.The days are getting longer so I will try and go for a walk after dinner soon. The upcoming week is not so hectic. I am working my other job on Monday night and have Dr's appointments on Monday and Friday. I am getting scanned for orthodics on Monday and Friday is just a maintenance check. So I should get some stitching done during the week.

Thanks everyone for your comment's on M.A. I am making some progress. It is nice to stitch some other motifs. The verse is coming up soon, so more letters :)

I hope that you are all having a great weekend.

It was nica to see the sunshine today, wasn't it. Your soup and scones look yummy! Good luck with your appointments this week.

Looks like you had a busy weekend, Chris! Not sure about the cauliflower soup (vegetables and I have a very bad relationship!), but those scones look wonderful!

Glad you're getting to stitch some of the motifs for a while--it sure looks pretty...

Thanks for the email.

Glad you got to see the sun over the weekend! The soup looks good (never had it before), as do the scones.

Good luck with the Dr. appts., and hope you have a great week.
