Lazy Sunday Morning Thoughts



Ranunculus from Trader Joe's.  They are the perfect antidote to a gray day outside.


Good Sunday morning.  Are you enjoying your weekend?  I hope so.  It is pouring rain here today - all day - so I foresee lots of coffee and coziness in the future.  Maybe even some time to read a book or work in my Smashbooks.  Definitely need to plan the week's meals as well as put away the four laundry baskets of clean and folded clothes that are lined up in the upstairs hallway.  
We are having a lazy morning before going to church at noon.  The boys and my husband are playing endless games of NHL and soccer on X-box while I am enjoying time to catch up on my e-courses :  Poem It Out and Swan Dive.  I have gotten so far behind since April has swept me up like a wave and just now dropped me off on the shore.  This week is designated "Catch Up Week" for certain.
What does your Sunday look like?  How about your week ahead?  I would enjoy hearing about it.


Grace and peace to you today and all days.

  2. Hello! I followed you over from Vivienne McMasters' blog. Lovely flower photos! So soft and dreamy. And OH, both of those courses sound so good--they're definitely on my wishlist. Today I'm enjoying a beautiful blue sky and my first lawn-mow of the season. Smells so good!

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Tuna and Lentil Salad {Menu Plan Monday}

This hardly constitutes a recipe since it is mostly dump and stir but I  must  share it here because I love it so much.  The tangy vinegar mixed with spicy onions and creamy lentils makes my perfect in-a-rush lunch.  I usually just eat it right out of the bowl but it is also nice on a bed of red leaf lettuce.  It is also perfect for meatless Friday meals during the Lenten season just double the amounts. INGREDIENTS One can lentils , rinsed and drained 1 can tuna, packed in olive oil, undrained 1/4 onion, diced I prefer red onion) 1/4 cup red wine vinegar kosher salt PROCESS In a medium mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together.  I usually add more vinegar as it is quickly soaked up by the lentils. Serve over lettuce, on crackers or simply eat out of the bowl! ******* The March 2012 issue of Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine, entitled The Budget Issue, was really inspiring me over the weekend so I plan to make several new recipes from

Peaceful Snow Day

Yesterday we had the most lovely snow day. The woods were simply begging us to come and explore. We had new trails to find and secret passageways and hideouts. Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. George Washington Carver There were tracks to follow. And tracks to make. Occasionally, the wind blew mini blizzards of snow around us. And then the sun returned and the sky gleamed blue. The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. Ralph Waldo Emerson There were hints of Spring. And reminders of winter. We made wonderful memories. And then, there were the snowy camellias. I got a little swept away by their color and beauty. I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. e.e. cummings
