Lamb with Snow Peas and Feta; the update

When one makes a leg of lamb, and one is only feeding two, there are lots of leftovers.

First we had the risotto.

Second we had this stir-fry with a Greek twist.

Equally good.

The bedroom is finished – well, except for the closet doors.

He’ll make them this summer when it’s warm enough to work in the barn.

And he’s caught up on his share of the outdoor spring work……

This is what it looked like after we got the beds set-up:


We added the rocking chair and dresser.

Then we started adding all the stuff in the boxes that still needs to be organized and we’ve been storing in the other bedroom…..

Rearranging the stuff has been a major job ever since we moved here.


Things like the third bed that will go into the last room ended up leaning on the wall – as well as the universal gym.

It hasn’t been set-up since we left the last house. It will, some day, go into the last room as well.  For now, it’s usuable again.


On a brighter. spring note, I thought I would share my tulips.

I bought a bag of bulbs at a discount last October.  I had no idea what they were, but there were 50 bulbs (no, I have not counted the plants).

I figured whatever the bunnies didn’t eat would be good.

It’s been fun watching them… all different colors and different bloom times.


This is today…..


Happy Spring!
