Outside My Window...I see alot of sunshine after a morning of rain and a night of storms. I am thinking...I need to finish dinner I am thankful for...my children,my home,a good dinner From the kitchen...I smell Amish meatloaf (new recipe!) I am wearing...a purple t shirt and sweats I am creating...dinner and working on my blog I am going...to the store later I am reading..."That Summer Place"~I only get to read about 10 pages a day but I'm enjoying it I am hoping...to get the kids all registered for school this week I am hearing...my 2 yr old yelling at his brother Around the house...it's unusually quiet,but I know that won't last long! One of my favorite things...today would be my new Bob Evans coffee I bought!YUM! A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:School stuff,cleaning,tackling my dining room Here is picture thought I am sharing...I'll add this later!
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
