Snippets of summertime blessings

  It looks like summer has finally arrived at my house!  It has been such a long time since I last posted ~ back when the rainy days were here!  How are you doing?  I am enjoying these days so much ~ the wonderful sunshine and warmth, the restful days, and the simple pleasures of summertime♥

We have gone down to the beach a few times♥

We harvested the first of our rhubarb ~ and used it in a strawberry rhubarb pie♥

An unexpected package arrived in the mail one day…so beautifully fabric wrapped!  I have been wanting to try making the pinwheel potholders shown on the Homestead Blessings Quilting DVD…I think this material is so pretty and perfect!

I sat out and enjoyed the little book with a cup of tea♥

 Bill and I went to a lavender farm ~ inspiration for me ~ and so sweet of him to take me♥

The deep purple ones are definitely my favorite!

Today we harvested some of our own♥

And put them into bundles for drying.  The scent is WONDERFUL♥

There has been the regular things too ~ eating our meals outside,  backyard fun and laughter, cooking, the dishes, and laundry…and more laundry and more dishes, and weeding of the same places more than once, but oh, these days are filled with simple blessings.

I hope your days have been filled with some sweet summertime pleasures too!

Joy to you,

  1. Hi Sharon! It’s so nice to see you! Oh, the lavender is extra-lovely! I remember a cool herb farm near Issaquah when we lived in Washington. I’m glad the weather has turned. I’m meeting my parents and siblings for an island stay soon. I miss the PNW.
    Happy summer to you, friend!
