How would you like to wake up to that every morning?
Saturday. The Sabbath! LOL Today I can honestly say, it was a day of rest!
It funny, as new testament believers we don't really observe the Sabbath, but after today I certainly wouldn't mind!
I woke up to this beautiful little girl beaming at me! We went out and watered my new bed of flowers!
I was very excited as I started planting last night. I planted Celosia & Lobelia. Probably means nothing to those who don't garden. It certainly meant nothing to me up until yesterday! For years I was under the impression that gardening was boring, tedious and gross! When people would chat about how they love to garden to pass time, I would think to myself.....BORING!!! Until I moved. When we bought this home last August I knew immediately something had to be done about the garden! As much as I would "diss" gardening, I certainly appreciated a nice view. |I started my venture a month ago with burnt orange woodchips. Since the front yard it very very tiny, grass would be a bit pointless, but dirt wasn't going to do!
My Gardens color scheme is cobalt blue and ice cream strawberry! They say for first gardens to start small. LOL I really have no other choice! We plan on purchasing a little cast iron bench to put in the garden!
Other than Gardening the day was quite uneventful! For once! But the PW in me couldn't take it any longer and began to prepare the mothers day gifts for the ladies in church tomorrow! We also bbq'd pork chops! Yummy! With summer on the brink, BBQ will be at least 4 times a week! Its fun, quick & mess free!
What a contrast to last Saturday! I think I am going to make it a rule I observe the sabbath at least once a month! Haha! Although gardening & crafting would probably be considered work in Isreal!
To all my fellow readers, make sure you really do get a day of rest in there! It feels so good when you do!
