Puttering Around the House.......

2009_07080020

Starting off the morning with coffee, it's the fuel I need to get the cobwebs out of my head and concentrate on the day ahead.

An unmade bed needing attention

A load of laundry waiting to be washed, dried and put away

Filling the sink with soapy water for the rest of the day, I throw in dirty dishes throughout the day and wash as I go.

Who says decorating has to be expensive? I've learned to use what I have around me and when I went to trim my Honeysuckle bushes this morning, I kept the trimmings, filled some mason jars with water and VOILA!

My lemon tree is growing again, I love watching the progress from a tiny sweet scented flower to lemons

I'm off to finish my crochet bag and see what else needs tending to.

Have a great day everyone, and don't forget that tomorrow my Slow Cooking Thursdays are back.

Sandra,

Thanks for starting the day off with me and coffee. I too need it to jump start my day!

I love lemons! We are planning on putting one in before the fall.

Can't wait to see what's on your post for tomorrow.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Love your blog Sandra. I found it via a link from Little Jenny Wren, I think.

I've just posted today, about what living simply looks like for me, if you're interested.

I'm coming back later to read back on older posts...with a cup of tea. Sorry! Coffee just doesn't appeal to me, despite the fact dh owns a coffee company. Sad, isn't it?!

Just wanted to say Hi Sandra!

Cheri said...

Those kind of days are great. Just normal everyday stuff.
Hey- I posted a recipe on my blog for fresh strawberry lemonade- it's so yummy- you should try it with your lemons.

The wonderful routineness of this post telling of your plans for the day somehow feels so peaceful.

I'm playing catch up with you. I too love to cut things from outside and put into mason jars...and puttering around the house is great..we are doing that today. We have no where to go until tonight so we are still in pajamas and hanging around. But I love those kinds of days and we dont get them around here enough. It sounds like you are doing well. Summer is almost over for us...school starts 8/6 here. Crazy. Miller goes to 2 day a week pre school but not until September for him..so his summer lasts a little longer.
Just wanted you to know I was still around...hope things are going well.
