Life Lately

 

Life has been busy lately. But when is it ever NOT busy? Smile In this season of life I have been just happy to hang out and enjoy what God has for me day to day. It has not always been so. I have been discontented and always searching for the next best thing. Wanting to do more, be more, create more. God kind of gave me a word this year and it was “wait”. So instead of trying to make something new happen, I have been learning to just wait and enjoy what happens day to day. Here are some of those “day to day” moments.

Our garden has been producing TONS of tomatoes! Did I say TONS? Like, we cannot keep up with them! We have canned quite a few, and when we ran out of jars, we started freezing them. There are still several bushes that need to be cleaned of their fruit in the garden. It is quite the production. All of us working together to peel, cut, cook, can, and freeze. Did I mention clean-up? There is always a clean up job to do!

I had lots of bread to make for a customer and some to put in our own freezer. 3 batches and 15 loaves later the kitchen smelled fabulous and I couldn’t resist tasting some Raisin Cinnamon Whole Wheat Homemade Bread! Still warm with butter on it???? OH MY WORD! IT tasted great!

My “time to go shopping outfit” I have really been loving pulling out my cowboy boots to wear now. Because fall is on it’s way (despite the fact it was 85* her in Michigan this week) wearing boots is permissible. I will miss the effortlessness of flip flops though. (pouty face)

  1. Loved this newsy update post! The kittens!! ❤ and I'm glad you like the necklace! It looks fabulous on you, of course. Your outfits are always adorable. Those contented seasons are the best. You're sitting there like "I don't know why I'm not worrying or stressing or longing, but I'm not and it just feels SO GOOD." 😀

    Love you my friend!
