This weekend was one of the most amazing weekends I have had in a long time. It was full of friends, nature, gardening and animals. It was perfect!
After Lora started her trek back to Texas on Saturday morning, we had a cat adoption. One very lucky 6 year old girl got the kitty that she had been wanting for quite some time, and I tell you there was nothing sweeter than this little girl. She was so excited, and again we were reminded that there are reasons that we do rescue. This little girl's excitement was the cutest reminder of why we do what we do... After the cat adoption, and to give the kitty a chance to get comfortable in his new surroundings quietly, our families headed to the woods for a little nature therapy. It was a beautiful day, and we all had a great time laughing and playing in the creek.

Then Katzya had a friend spend the night, because they were going to go see War Horse today with their school drama club. Just by a chance the Reluctant Farmer and I checked into tickets expecting the show to be sold out, however we were quite surprised to find out the theater still had several tickets available for today's show. So, we ended up purchasing front row, box tickets to War Horse for 50% off, and it was so worth it! (Please promise me, if you ever get the chance to see War Horse performed, you will go!) This performance was like no other that I had ever been seen, and it was brilliant!
We came home tonight and transplanted the tomato plants, which was long over due! (Thankfully, the tomato plants have now been moved outdoors. I was starting to feel like I lived in a tropical rain forest....) Some of them literally are knee high! We also managed to plant another 144 seedlings tonight. (Cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelon, tomatillos, and cantalope....) It was busy around here this weekend!
Sitting on the front porch tonight, barefoot, with a Woodchuck, a bucket of dirt, and Jimmy Buffett singing in the background, was the perfect end to the perfect weekend. I hope your weekend was just as wonderful.....
