A year later, I've finally completed my project of painting some of the brick on the exterior of the house. My husband, the Bear, is a brick mason, so we had to have a brick home when we built. I, the one who makes things complicated and difficult, wanted some contrast. The solution was to paint the walls on the porch. Break up the red brick pattern a bit. This is the inspirational house that my brother found to create my vision. Keep in mind that painting brick is against all law and code in the brick mason world.
Saturday we traveled to the farmer's market, oh what a treat. We came home with all sorts of goodies. Tiger melons were a new fruit we tried. We bought vegetables to substitute what we didn't have from our garden to make vegetable soup to freeze. I made 7 quarts, and it's lovely, but I have no pictures. Then we finished off the night with steak and fresh vegetables. Also fried the beet greens with little onion in bacon gease. Yummie!
