Potager Construction - Day 6 - Catching a break

Rain. That's what I heard when I woke at something around 5:30. C had the day off for Spring Break, so did the kids. My plans of finishing the pavers suddenly got shelved. Had a bit of a late morning. We needed it. By 7:30 everyone was up and moving, but the extra sleep was nice.

The early part of the day was spent puttering at this and that, all of us moving slowly. At 10:30 M came to get the kids for their wild flower walk, tea, and egg coloring. They made some lovely looking eggs using beet juice, blue berries, onion skins, and turmeric.

In the afternoon we caught another break from the weather, SUN! (sort of, at least the rain stopped and the clouds allowed the sun to poke through occasionally.) We used the time to get a wee bit more done on the potager. So, even though it wasn't a full, productive day, today counts. Progress was made. Sand was moved, leveled, and covered (at least partially) with pavers.

Tomorrow we have the family Easter Fest. No potager work, no gardening, basic chores and LOTS of SMILES.
