This is how my day went!
written by Sue, January 18th, 2011

Monday I got a late start, but am happy to say that I finished cleaning the kitchen and it is now back in order. If my kitchen is in order I feel like the rest of the house is okay!
The peels on these bananas were really dark, so I peeled them and put them in the freezer, to use for smoothies, If I was going to use them for banana bread, I would have mashed them up first. I was amazed at how good they looked... Goes to show you that you can't judge a book by its cover.

 My plans were to start on the breakfast room next but didn't because my cheerleader called twice to ask if I was going to walk  before it started raining. I kept saying "yes, but I want to finish this kitchen before I go." I knew if I didn't finish it before I walked that it would not get done. because I had already looked out the window and saw another fire burning, and when I see a campfire it just draws me like a magnet. lol.
As I walked, I called to my cheerleader to keep it going , because when I was finished I wanted to sit by the fire and chat. He smiled! Two reasons..... I was walking,.... and he loves the chats by the fire too.

I didn't take my camera because it is too large, and missed some great shots of the donkeys eating the apples I took them. I found the apples in the bottom of the frig, that came from our orchard, they were a little shriveled, and I decided it was time to let go.

 They loved them, and so did I, I decided to taste to see if they were as good as the donkeys thought. Oh so sweet, I almost brought them back to the house and saved them,for us but yielded to their happy faces.lol Maybe I will take  my cell phone next time.
I finished with 2.5 mies, now let me see, I have walked for 5 straight days and logged 12.5 miles. I walked 3 mi. one day.

Enjoy your day.

I'm glad you're out walking!!! Your kitchen is beautiful. I love that center island.!!!!

Oh, I would have loved to seen a photo of the donkeys eating the apples. However, I think that was meant just for you that day :) :) :) Apples are great :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

I feel the same way about a clean and organized kitchen. Yours is so warm and cozy. I love the books on the island.
Good for you for getting out there and walking. I hope to get back to walking when my sciatica cooperates :).

I was walking this morning thinking about you and you walked 2.5 miles. I kept telling myself I can do this too. So you are a good motivator too. So glad you have kept track that is amazing how it adds up.
Blessings to you my dear friend

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
