I pray that all the mom’s out there had a lovely Mother’s Day yesterday. Mine was spectacular! My hubby and dear children spoiled me with a ridiculous amount of chicken art, Tim McGraw CDs, and Yankee Candles. Plus, the kids made a wonderful dinner of cheeseburgers, sweet potato fries, fruit salad, spice cake, and cinnamon ice cream, all from scratch, even the ice cream! As a joke, I was served a cut up PBJ as an appetizer. I was thoroughly impressed and completely blessed!
As you can tell, I took last week off from blogging. I was a little busy doing all of the things that I write about! After canning too many jars of pineapple, chick peas, and chili beans, I had to find places to store all those jars in the pantry. Then add in more soap-making experiments and sewing projects and my days really filled up!
This week, I’ll be planting okra and finishing preparing the new garden bed for sweet potatoes. While the rest of you are probably finishing up your planting for the season, I’ll be cleaning up the last of the plants in the main garden and letting the garden rest until August. Yep, we do things a little differently here in Florida.
I pray you have a blessed week with less stress because you created a menu plan!
