All in a Day...

The weather is so pleasant this week... sunny and in the mid 70's. The type of weather that makes me throw the windows open and go about my task with more joy then normal.

My dad showed up the other day with a sack of fresh green beans. Just because... that is the way my parents are. ♥


They have me longing for produce fresh from my own garden.  Yum! 

I have slowly started to purchase my flowers.  I spent some time in the morning planting. 


Of course there is always a never ending list of household chores to be done.  Tuesday is the day I dust and vacuum the living room. 


It is also the day I wash sheets. 


It doesn't get much better then line dried sheets!  A simple pleasure I never tire of. 

Caring for the boys takes up the biggest part of my time.  They are active little guys. :)

 
Saturday Chuck and I celebrated our 12th anniversary.  We went to a charming little town not far from us and browsed some little shops.  I came home with some berry and star twigs that I used to fill up a crock.
 
   
 
Mondays laundry leads to Tuesdays ironing.  I enjoy ironing especially when I can do it on the back porch. 
 

I can smell the lilac bushes as sit outside and type this.  Hmmm... I couldn't resist cutting some to fill a vase. 


Dinner was shared outside.  Something I hope we can do often this summer. 


Chuck and Megan walk up and dump the compost bucket most evenings.  It makes my heart smile when I see them walking and talking together.


Then I was off for a women's ministry planning meeting.  Not something I am usually a part of.  They have some concern about women with young families not joining in and I had an idea to connect them. 
 
 
 In case you are wondering my idea was to do an online Bible study for those who can't make the commitment to be out their homes on Tuesday mornings or Wednesday evenings.  Either a Good Morning Girls study or the same study that was being done on Tuesday mornings.  That way women of the church were still able to connect with each other.  My pastors wife loved the idea.  I was asked to head it up but I am not sure I can make that commitment at this time.  We'll see! 
 
All in a day...
 
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.  Proverbs 31:27
 
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!

  2. Happy anniversary! Such a good idea to do an online Bible study for your church moms. Maybe you could do it blog- style.

    I do sheets on Tuesdays too. I only have two beds now, but I used to have seven to do. I complain now, but I don't think I complained too much back then. I'm getting spoiled.

    Great ironing idea...I would probably rarely look at my clothing article..ha..I'd be watching nature.

  3. Hey Wendi! I've missed ya! I wish I could line-dry my laundry, but three out of five of us have really bad environmental allergies so it can't happen. Bummer. You just reminded me again that I need to try out the whole ironing outside thing. I remember you posting about that in the past, but I don't recall ever doing it myself like you had inspired me to do! Honestly, I guess i don't do much ironing.

  7. Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby Wendi!

    I love that you can iron outside and I especially love all the meals you have outside! We can't pull that off very long here because of the mosquitoes. :(

    Sweet that Megan loves helping daddy! I know that puts a smile on your face!

    Blessings,
    Tammy
