Project 365 ~ Week 19: WOW! I can’t believe I am posting early and Happy Mother’s Day Y’all!

I had a wonderfully calm, restful week. Thank you Jesus! I puttered around in the yard, continued to sort through several cluttered up places and my pile of stuff for my planned yard sale is growing bigger each day!

Here is my week y’all!

Monday, May 7

The herb garden is busting out….mint, parsley, basil, lemon thyme, marjoram, oregano, thyme and rosemary! Just an FYI, I take a small bundle of the lemon thyme pour some boiling water over it and let it steep for a few minutes, sweetened to taste and then pour over ice and it make a very refreshing ice herb tea!

Back in the day my school project consisted of hand drawn illustrations glued into a home made construction paper booklet. Now the illustration are still hand drawn but then they get scanned and then inserted into a Microsoft Publisher document!

I had to do a bit of shopping for a bridal shower I was going to on Saturday, but as I was strolling down the isles of the store I found a new box of drinking glasses in my cart. My drinking glasses were getting a bit old and dingy looking and I just wanted something that was new and different.

I have been reading a book I downloaded about kitchen organization. It talks a lot about feng shui, now I do not hold a lot of stock in this ancient Asian philosophy but one of the suggestions it did give was to remove any broken or damaged equipment from your kitchen. Well we have been living with a broken toaster for almost two years now so I seized the moment and threw caution to the wind and along with my drinking glasses I came home with a brand new shiny four slice toaster as well.

Later in the day it was such a wonderfully cool in the later afternoon that I pulled up a chair and just sat for a few minutes enjoying my back yard. After a few minutes it hit me that after several years of working I finally can sit and have a moment of enjoyment. It as such an affirmation for me. One of the things I missed the most about our old home was the late afternoon just sitting out on the deck with a glass of Ice tea and enjoying the end of the day. I was so blessed by the moment that I snatched up my phone and snapped off a few pictures. My fancy camera will actually do a stitched together photo but I just pieced these three photos together at the last minute. I wanted to share the moment

On the way home from the bridal shower I had to pass right by Chadwick’s, it is know round these parts as having some of the very best fresh produce around. I very rarely get over in that direction so I don’t avail myself of the opportunity very often. When I do I am always very pleased. I picked up some fresh corn, ripe tomatoes and a cantaloupe. It was all good. I can officially say that summer has arrived, even thought it is still spring.

This is my perfect summer meal!

Ooh your dinner in that last picture looks YUMMY! And I love your back yard. I hope to do some work in ours - I just have to figure out what I want to do.

We were laughing about our toaster oven the other day - it was a wedding gift, so it's still going strong at almost 22 years old :)
