A day at Big Hill….

What a lot of industrious goings on here today: the new addition to the side of the workshop is coming along very fast and furiously! So here’s what went on around here today:

Maud, a new Wwoofer from Quebec has done the most amazing job weeding in our large garden…now i can actually see where my tomato plants are growing!!

Pier-David, Maud’s partner – has also been amazing in the weeding of the garden….they are both sporting the classic bug shirt or hat….absolutely necessary if you want to keep some sense of sanity while working in the garden!

Richard is getting ready to start nailing the floor on the addition! he sure looks eager eh!!!

I trimmed a bunch of mugs, teapots (seen here), creamers, jugs and more….this is me carving a teapot before the spout and handle are attached!

Terry et al starting to put down the floor…..

the guys have done a great job…and the floor is half down!!!

And to round out the day, Terry and I headed down to Englishtown beach…him with his fishing rod and me with my camera! some quiet moments were had!

and now it’s time for dinner….

    Loved these photos – you’ll laugh, but what I thought about most while looking at them are the various scents associated with each activity – garden dirt, wet clay, clean sweat, freshly sawed lumber and the resinous tang of the evergreens in the background. Who knew….?

    Wow, what a good way to remember these moments… but I hope it’s more than scents now ! How is this garden growing now ? Are the weeds coming back to life again ? Did you eat a tomato yet ? How is the chard we sowed ? Shining in the sun ?

    Terry started the painting of the windows ? Is he finished with the addition to the barn ?

    Sorry for all those questions… I’m nostalgious (?) ! I’ve seen something special at Big Hill. Thank you again, there is so much memories I’d like to perpatuate !

    Maud and me are moving to Chicoutimi next monday. Be sure that we will be strongly inspired by rich people: those who live peacefully, near the silence that filter between two wing flaps of delicate hummingbirds… those who live behind a big hill.

    Peace to you all !

    Great photos, things look busy making the most of the summer! I spent a little time away from the studio lately myself and when I got back it was home to that smell of damp clay, nothing like it huh? : D
