My youngest boy came in from the backyard and told me it was "lovely that we had dogs to play with". I wanted to melt. Such sweet words from an almost 9 year old boy!

We had a lovely weekend and I think we all felt it. I was able to get all my monthly grocery shopping finished Saturday and still had energy to break up the bulk purchases into the correct portions for the freezer. I love the beginning of the month when the pantry is stocked well and the freezer is full. There is security in knowing that I can feed my family well.

Sunday was a day of chores and working on outside projects. K has been working his tail off to tame our crazy backyard. With all of the rain we have had it wasn't a pretty picture! We are expanding our vegetable garden areas into some of our flower beds. We figured if we have to pay for water we might as well be watering something we can eat!

We planted some tomato plants, bell peppers, chili peppers, and some more herbs. My oregano and one cilantro container have been going nuts. I need to get out the dehydrator and get some of the oregano dried. We still need to plant a lot of other veggies, but that will probably have to wait until later in the week.

Sunday ended with K and I taking the dogs for a little walk around the neighborhood. While we were out we got to see the most beautiful sunset. Only in nature do you find such amazing colors! It was truly gorgeous.

I am so thankful that we have a plan for our yard, food for our tummies, and a nice neighborhood for evening strolls. We are truly blessed.

Until next time,

  1. Visiting from Gratituesday. I love evening strolls. We are in Northern British Columbia and though we had planned an evening stroll tonight, it started hailing! Yuck. No stroll tonight. We did make it to the pool for over an hour though and that was great!
