Get Growing!

This time of year is always busy. Busy because of all the digging and watering and sowing and planting. What is a girl to do? I got everything planted. Everything. *wipe the brow* No more plants in the windows. Hardening off plants did not go as planned, but sometimes you just have to plant and … Continue reading Get Growing!

Expecting the Unexpected

Well, Farmer's Almanac fails all of us at some point. This spring has been oddly "emotional" (as if I'm talking about a teenager đŸ˜€ ) One week, the warm front encourages the grass to sprout and the roses to begin budding. The next week, we get the warning for freezing temps and I scramble to … Continue reading Expecting the Unexpected

Wonderful

adjective inspiring delight, pleasure, or admiration; extremely good; marvelous. All of those adjectives is how I would describe Sunday. I turned 29. What a day it was. I don't have much to say other than the very definition of "wonderful". We have lived in Oklahoma for 3 1/2 years and had not yet visited Oklahoma … Continue reading Wonderful

Outside or In?

What would you choose? This time of year feels like a no brainer. Just last night, I got to spend my evening sitting on the back porch watching the Oklahoma lightning storms make their way north. The frogs were carrying on their evening bantering like old men sweating it out in the sauna. They are … Continue reading Outside or In?

The Cloud of God’s Provision

February is a reminder that winter has finally arrived in Oklahoma. It always seems to be the coldest of the months. Yesterday was an ice rink, so we stayed home. More snow flurries and ice is expected. I'm trying to organize my thoughts as I look at my calendar. February 11th... How in the world? … Continue reading The Cloud of God’s Provision

Black Beans & Brunch

January is slow outside, so I seem to buzz inside. I have been following the "Clutter Free January" series on YouTube and find GREAT inspiration within these four walls. Our dishwasher broke the day after Christmas, so instead of running out to buy a new one, I embrace the evening dishes with a podcast playing … Continue reading Black Beans & Brunch

Praying Through the Calendar

Because I am up early on this beautiful Christmas morning, I decided to do a house sweep and pray through the New Year... Just the two of us this year, like many households in 2020. We did our celebrations on Christmas Eve and enjoyed a hot meal. Now, I am up early with a cup … Continue reading Praying Through the Calendar

“There be snow in these parts.”

This month has been quiet and uneventful for the most part which is so not how December usually goes. I like it. The house just always smells alive. Whether it be something in the kitchen, the aroma of the Christmas tree, or a candle flickering on the counter, there is something to be said about … Continue reading “There be snow in these parts.”
