- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

work at your pattern it will come out a

stitch at a time taken patiently.

Full blown summertime out there today...
it's all summer out today 87, my maters are loving this and ae producing flowers. Heirlooms, they look healthy and strong. Me, not so much. Turning double nickle neck month...I've decided that I need to feel better and have more energy, I get so tired and don't want to move, I don't like that. I think at least for me I am going to incorporate more whole grains, eat more frequently through the day, and see if I can keep up or bring up my energy level, maybe shed some weight which help my knees..all the sudden I'm feeling achy and what not...so it is time to regroup and regain. Nothing drastic, but rather making more simple healthy decisions about what I eat and when, just being more aware.
I went to the grocery store early this morning, less people, better parking and before the temp got out of control. Tonight I'm making a huge salad and will grill up some boneless chicken breast inside on the old foreman, and maybe some crusty bread...Another thing, I don't feel like cooking these elaborate meals anymore, it's just more simple to wholesome/fresh, I'm not a summertime cook, I prefer the winter when I can make soups and stews. I have some fresh blueberries I took out of the freezer and maybe will make some muffins for desert. What's doing on your homestead today?
