Summer Time Bliss

What a wonderful time of year! Rain showers wash away the dirt, then everything looks and smells so clean.

The garden is producing just enough to get by. But that’s what happens when life gets in the way and you don’t get everything planted that you wanted too. (Next year I will be more prepared! I think I say this statement every year!)

It’s on page number 37 under Soft Spreads

All my canning supplies is sitting on the counter top. The house smells amazing from the grape jelly I just made, and canned. What a great recipe. Fast, and easy! Three ingredients! Light man loves it! He tells me I am not aloud to use the store bought jelly anymore.

Tomorrow I will be making Pepper jelly! I have done all the prepping today and it is sitting in the refrigerator as I wrote this!

I have lots of things on my list of things to do. I am being to wondering if I am going to have enough time to get it all done! Back to work in little over a month. Lots to do!

Until next time…

Time to get busy,

And I Hope all is well,

Take the time to smell the rain!

Find Happiness in the small things!

The weather around here is far from what it should be. We are almost at the end of February and the temperatures are almost 70*. We really didn’t have much snow this year. 

This morning as I was driving, I was thinking about the small simple things that are all around us that we miss daily. Simple things that could bring us happiness and joy, if we would just take a look around.

It is hard to see but there is a farm tractor in the fog!

The top of an old country church! I find it kind of peaceful.

An old jar that my little boy and I found behind our house!

These are just some things that I came across today! Imagine all the things that we pass on a daily basis and don’t pay attention because we are to busy or distracted!

Look for the small simple things in life. Take a moment and just slow down! You never know what you will miss when your not looking for it!

Until next time,

Find happiness in the small things!
