Weekend Round Up

This weekend we:

  • Went to the North Asheville Farmers Market and bought goat cheese rolled in cracked black pepper from the Spinning Spider Creamery, eggs, and pork chops from Spring House Meats,
  • Visited Animal Haven and their new thrift store,
  • Picked blueberries and made blueberry muffins,
  • Went to lunch with friends,
  • Mowed the lawn,
  • Picked loads of tomatoes and made salsa,
  • Babied the chickens,
  • Started the last step of refinishing Monkey's big girl bed.
  • And listened to the Monkey talk and babble non-stop.

Animal Haven is an animal rescue in Asheville. If you check out the adoption page you will see two dogs that I just fell in love with. I am especially in love with Blue, an Irish Wolfhound/Terrier (yes, just imagine that breeding...). He and his brother, Black, were rescued and then "enrolled" in a dog training program at the Black Mountain Women's Correctional Facility. They passed with flying colors and are now up for adoption fully-trained. Big Daddy reminded me to be realistic and realize that I didn't need a dog quite so large and that I was looking for a pure bred this time to train for agility, obedience, and tracking. He sure was sweet though and he really isn't THAT big...
