I am off to get my rear in gear. My kids are spending the day with my mom and I have a RARE lunch date with my husband (woohoo)!!! I also have my second annual piano recital tonight, so I must prepare some refreshments for that. I’m looking forward to hearing my students and seeing them shine.


I am content to fill a little space if God be glorified ~Susanna Wesley


  1. What beautiful pictures and its is amazing how such simply things really make such grand smiles.

  2. Lovely photos! :)

    I wanted to tell you, from your comment on my blog...The Mother at Home and Home-Making are different books by the same author. Home-Making is also known as The Family by JR Miller! :) The Mother at Home is also one of my favorite books!

  3. What a delight to read your post and look at the pictures. Chickens are looking yummy! :)
    We hope to raise our own food one day, and I'm sure I'll be faced with the same dilemma, lol


I love and welcome your comments. Please be nice.
