It is a lovely morning here. The weather is a little cooler, a slight breeze through the trees. The cattle are awake and the babies are happy.
The three baby robins that are above our porch are up and hungry.
Before I continue on with my morning I must share the delicious lunch we had yesterday. Very simple but sitting in the sun with the birds singing and the water splashing in the fountain made it feel like we were in Norway sitting by a Fjord.
I bought some lovely smoked salmon smoked the way the Native Canadians do it here. I soft boiled some eggs and made an heirloom tomato salad simply dressed with olive oil, salt, pepper and then sprinkled spring onion on everything. Delicious!
You may remember last summer I accidently made a nice blueberry jam. I was heating blueberries with a little sugar for a syrup and left it too long and had a yummy jam in minutes. Well, our peaches are ready so this morning I made some nice quick peach jam. I just cut up four nice size peaches and cooked it down with 4 tbsp. of sugar.
It was absolutely delicous on a multi-grain organic bread.
Within minutes Rufus was beside me with his funny grin and Daisy was not far behind. Of course they each had a little piece how could I resist those eyes.
I could sit here all day just looking across the farm. The birds are singing the squirrels are scampering, usually away from the dogs, and the sun is shining. Breakfast is done and I am going to sit and enjoy reading my new British Country Living. Life is good!
