View from my window!
At the end of a busy day, there's something very peaceful and relaxing about looking out the window and seeing the world slowing down, watching everything switching from a fast pace to almost a crawl in anticipation of the evening.
So it goes every night, I look out the back door or the kitchen window and I get to smile, whether I'm washing dishes at the kitchen sink while showered in a beautiful sunset light...
Or I'm standing at the back door while the kids play outside.
My lemon tree looks even more beautiful in the sunset light doesn't it?
This orange tree is two houses down
Now let me quickly show you my seedlings, remember I was dreading planting anything? I feared the "Thumb of Death" would make it's nasty appearance?
I must be doing something right, they're growing, they're thriving and they've survived in my house LOL
Problem is, I don't know what I'm doing different which means next time I plant something, chances are they'll die.
My poor Lavender is the only one so pathetic it makes me sad....I talk to it everyday and ask it to please grow because I need to smell that beautiful scent....but so far, my pleas are unanswered.
I'm off to enjoy some Cheater Chicken and Dumplings. Oh don't worry, I always make enough to share, and if you want to make it for your family, just go get the recipe here at Full Bellies, Happy Kids. I just posted it for you.
