Slow Fourth: Summer Pleasure





















4th of July was one of my favorite kind of days: staying home ALL day, making fun holiday food, cleaning and organizing, and the reality of my kitchen when I make fun food, making memories together at home and enjoying the simple pleasures of being together!

Recipe inspirations:
Firecracker hotdogs
M&M cookie bars

Simple Summer Pleasures


Hanging clothes on the line.



Freckles.


The smell of nectarines ripening on the counter. 
Collecting new memories: my Mom bought me this lovely colander at the Freckled Hen Farmhouse!


Long summer evenings - sitting in a quiet room with the diminishing light.

Blue canning jars filled with blooms from my yard!

Lesser expectations, watermelon slices, family visits, margin to think about and process things, watching movies from the library at lunch time and cleaning out/organizing! What are some of your favorite summer pleasures?

Sunset Chasing

Getting a few things tidied for the evening I noticed a pink glow coming through the screened in porch into the dining room - that means one thing: a really good sunset is taking place. Shoes were put on quickly and anyone who was interested {only Emily this time} hopped in the car with me and away we went. It is only a few minute drive which is good because good sunsets like this don't last a super long time.

I love seeing God's artistry and handiwork on display across the sky!!! These photos are unedited and the variation in color comes from what setting is used and also what I have focused on but really no photo truly captures the beauty! Look for the moon in the upper left corner fifth photo down...

Nectarines
VBS fun for my three
Lunch in the car for me in between two appointments.
Newsworthy: Samuel put his face in the water to swim for the.first.time. Wow - he just swam back and forth and back and forth enjoying his new skill - something clicked!
Reading a little Charles Spurgeon.
Watermelon in enamelware = a favorite.

Prepping breakfast.
