Encouraging Hearts and Home 08.26.2021

How to Make Healthier Pizza, Pickling for Beginners, Gas Grill Tips for Beginners, and A Book Blast are this week's featured posts!  

Hello and Welcome!

We are winding down summer around here, the school year has started and there is a chill in the air from time to time. Personally, it makes me want to bake, make granola, and start a knitting project. Autumn is my favorite time of year. 

The daughter and son-in-law celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary and the baby turns three months old in a few days. All the little hens are laying. We still have not finished the raised garden beds...

With the cooler weather, it is time to hit the weeds in the flowerbeds, stock the woodshed and kindling pile. It won't be long before a morning fire will be needed along with coffee and feeding the cat. 

I would imagine it is much like that at your house, some things were completed, some things were not. There were things to celebrate, and chores are never-ending. The time of year does not seem to matter, life creates a pattern and for the most part, I like it very much!

Thank you for dropping by to visit, I appreciate it! If you could please leave a note, to let me know you were here....and please, have a wonderful week ahead!
