For today April 12, 2011

Outside my window... I see the many Jasmine vines in full bloom with dancing bees in and out of the delightful smelling blossoms.

I am thinking... of the richness of friendships that I have and  how grateful I am that God chose each one specifically for me.

I am thankful for...the deep well that is on our property which waters our gardens and the animals each day. 

From the kitchen...this weekend I had my oldest son and his girlfriend over for dinner & dessert.  I made the most delicious pan of lasagna completely from "scratch" right down to the sauce.  It was the best I have ever made! I can hardly wait to get my beloved here so I can cook it for him too.

I am wearing...a simple summer dress, it was easy to slide on early this morning!

I am creating...some mixed flower beds. Finally after getting the garden in fully (well, almost) I am giving some of my time to arranging plants on the property into specific flower beds and planting a few seeds too.

I am going...to bake several loaves of bread today made with fresh milled wheat. It has been a while since I have done this, I am excited.

I am reading...a wonderful magazine called Mother Earth News.  Someone very special in my life, gave my hubby and I a set of the chronicaled Mother Earth News Magazines for our house warming gift a few months ago.  These have been a great foundation to what we are building here at Erilyn. I love them. I am also reading "Storey's Guide to Raising Dairy Goats".

I am hoping...that we will get some rain today! The garden needs watering...  Rain was in the forcast, but I have yet to see it.

I am hearing...all the lovely birds this cool spring morning.

Around the house...is where I find myself mostly these days!   Which I am totally fine with!

One of my favorite things...is spending time in the warm sun on spring days.

A few plans for the rest of the week: getting my Florida drivers license (finally!), pulling weeds in garden, hoeing, pulling weeds in garden, mulching, pulling weeds in gardens.. you get the picture!
