~Scenes From My Day~

Good morning! Thank you *so* much for your notes of congratulations and blessings for our 13th wedding anniversary! Reading through them made my day extra special and I am very thankful for the friends I have made here in blogland!

The girls and Benjamin were at Vacation Bible School in the morning so I got to do some of my favorite things around the house....

I brought in some herbs and flowers from the garden and had a cup of Bigelow's Caramel Vanilla tea.


Lemon balm, Asparagus Fern and "Purple Pom-Poms." (We can't remember the actually name!)


Writing a letter to a friend...


Sometimes it pays not to weed! This Sunflower grew from winter birdseed that didn't get cleaned up.




Freshly washed bedsheets...


Banana Crumb Muffins hot from the oven.


Thank you for looking at the scenes from my day!

After VBS is over your day won't be so calm, enjoy every moment you can. Take care!!

We have sunflowers growing all over the place due to the squirrel or birds dropping them everywhere:-) Ours don't bloom until late July though! I so enjoyed looking at all your photos...those banana muffins made me realize I haven't eaten yet today!! lol xoxo

Heather said...

You had such a lovely and productive morning - good for you!

You are much smarter than I my friend ... why didn't I send the kids to VBS instead of going each day with them? Humph!
Maybe I can find another area VBS ... just kidding!
I printed out your muffin recipe - but just tonight I made banana bread with some really ripe bananas, so I'll have to wait for the next time my kids get sick of bananas before the supply is exausted!

Myrna said...

So peaceful! Moms everywhere look forward to VBS!

I usually have a lot of volunteer sunflowers. I have not noticed any so far this year. I love your little bouquet. I bet it smelled good with the herbs in there.
