How has your week been?
Mine has been going back and forth between
spring and winter blasts.
More snow and bits of sunshine here and there.
Inside is homey and smells of
fresh bread right out of the oven.
It's so nice to have fresh skillet buns
to go along with a roast chicken dinner.
Chocolate chip cookies in the cookie jar.
It's that time when we seem to be craving
things fresh from the oven.
This week I've been separating out some seedlings
to encourage them to grow more.
I've also been re-arranging things in front of the windows
to try to get the most of the light.
Below I have lemon balm that will be so nice
in hot tea or infused in chilled water through the summer.
There is a salad mix growing in the window.
Still a tad too small to snitch.
It won't be long before we will have the odd leaves
to add to sandwiches.
I had up potted my lemon oregano plant
and it has just exploded in new growth.
It'll make some nice meals and tea
plus lots to share.
Talking about sharing...
we have some new critters sharing our yard.
Not sure for how long, but for now we are enjoying them.
A couple mule deer came walking up our snowshoe trail
and decided to hang around and nibble on our little trees.
One was also checking out the one bird feeder
before moving around the house.
Below he is just past our carport.
Then we have also been blessed with
some lovely little snow bunting birds.
They are very busy and it's fun to watch them run
and slide through the snow as they feed.
At first they scared away the other little birds....
but they are starting to all get along.
I hope your homemaking day is going splendid!
Love and Prayers,
