A day in this blessed life...

FRIDAY JULY 15TH

Baking scones and muffins...


Planting out lettuce, bok choy, snow peas, red zinnias and beetroot...







Gathering cucumbers, spring onions, garlic chives, parsley, rocket (arugula) and coriander for a salad lunch...



Tending the roses and cutting a few to display inside...









Cappuccino break, with raspberry matrimony slice and a wonderful book...







Water vegetables, citrus trees, guava and banana trees...



















Water flowers, and prune the elder tree...





Bring in the washing, go for a swim...





Fold the washing, make another cappuccino and settle down with a new book about foraging...



Write a blog post and format photos, before closing up the house as the cool winter air descends.
Gather what is needed for dinner, set up my audio book on the kitchen bench, and begin cooking.

It's been a contented and productive day around our little quarter acre. Thank you Lord. xxx




May your days be filled with the joy of the Lord, and may He give you a plan and purpose for being productive, creative, generous and contented in your homemaker life, for it is a very high calling, and we who answer the call are blessed indeed. 

hugs

Such a sweet post today! Love all the pictures of your garden and your day. We forget to thank Jesus for all the little joys he gives us. He is such a good God and we are so blessed! Thanks for sharing your joy of being a wife and homemaker. It is a good reminder to me. We are getting ready to move for a year to try somewhere new. So many things to do and it is easy to get rushed and not thank Jesus for the little joys he gives me. He is blessing us in so many ways already and I am trying to keep track. It really is overwhelming how gracious he is. Have a lovely weekend. K- lkw2x6-apq@yahoo.com

Such contentment there on your little homestead - I love it so much! Mom went to her sister's for two nights, I caught up on sleep and actually vacuumed and mopped, amazing the lift it gave me. Thanks be to God for these blessings!!! Love you girl!

You were a busy lady. The roses are so pretty. Our cucumbers didn't do so well this year but I had plenty of tomatoes. Now with the heat in Texas our garden is fried now.
Oh and your scones looked real tasty.
Have a great week.
