Monday Aug 14th –
Our last morning at the cabin.
We and the father were shipping out and the bro’s wife and tots were taking our places.
Packing up our belongings and sweeping out the little cabin were the minimal tasks we had to complete and then a few hours of the usual cabin goings on remained until we said our fair-wells and were taken to mainland by the bro.
Before leaving though, Uncle Mike had to help Alaina make a water bottle boat to help entertain her until the cousins arrived😉
A quick stop in town look for a belt for an event coming up for me and picking up a PALLET of cookies for the husband 😝
It’s official, he’s the cookie man 😏😋🇳🇱🍪
We took them to our place to unload and then quickly tried to pick the majority of raspberries that had ripened in our absence.
Mike barbecued us some burgers for supper and I began the indoor plant watering, laundry sorting and general clean up before we called it a day.
Tuesday Aug 15th –
Michiel was off to sell cookies and combine tires 😜
He was raring to go with this new project of selling stroopwafels in Western Canada and began literally hours after getting his first batch of the product😋
The selling of combine tires was for the family owned shop but hey, it was sales, so Mike was on it 😎
While he sold his way through the day, I had gardening to attend to…my favourite 👩🏻🌾
But pick I did.
Green beans, carrots, tomatoes, raspberries and some basil for supper purposes, as a plan was forming for what I could whip up with the fresh produce 👩🏻🍳🥕🍅🌿
The garage was cat hair cleansed and then I decided to spray paint my second hand lamp base and test paint a patch on the couch to see how it covered/felt using FAT paint on fabric😬🎨
Both projects went fairly decent in my opinion but I’ll have to wait for the fabric primer/sealer I ordered before the real deal ☺️
Supper was roasted garden veggies, all sprinkled with lemon olive oil and herb and garlic Epicure seasoning and chicken baked with sesame oil, basil, garlic and Asiago cheese and a side of rice.
If I dare say so myself, it was pretty tasty
The raspberries from our garden were eaten for dessert 👌🏻
It was a very ‘living off the land’ kind of meal 😜
Mike then left to work on the house a little before the bro in law comes back from the cabin to lend his expertise.
Being the tester of Hubster’s products is not such a bad thing 😎👌🏻🍪☕️
