My Winter Escapes

This week our winter temperatures have been in the 30's, but in the garden within my greenhouse today it was 70 degrees.  It is like a trip to the south in my backyard. Not long after I have arrived in the greenhouse I found myself sitting at this little table in short sleeves.  It is amazing how warm this little greenhouse can warm up on cold winter days.  I love the sunshine and I love being out here.
 I cannot wait until this little house is filled with flowers and plants. I have an idea, anyone like to come over for lunch and tea within the greenhouse?  I would love to have you!

While I wait for spring, I like to fill my windows in my home with plants and citrus trees.

This room is filled with a sweet aroma from the bloom on the lemon tree.   

My two little girls have worked diligently on their school this week.  Creating with paints and papers spread across the old farmhouse table...for a moment they are lost in their art.

As for myself, I have lingered within pages of books that remind me who HE is.  I've faithfully applied the word of the year "dedicate or dedication" to each day in January. Can I see a difference? Yes, I feel the spirit of the Lord more in my prayer time and worship. He is faithful to draw nigh to us

I promise Spring is on her way!!

What are some things that you do to escape winter? How do you brighten up your home in winter?

I would love to hear from you! Let's Chat!

When it snows.....

As the snow blows in, we watch it softly fall from the warmth of our little farmhouse.  Within a few days, another storm blows in more snow, giving us another three inches.  We waited for the day to warm up before we adventure out into the snow to play and care for our animals.

Taking in the beauty of the soft snow resting upon the evergreens.

As much as we would love to stay out here and just play for a while, the wind chill would not allow us to.  La la fell face first in the snow trying to run in it. She called it " face sledding".  Goodness, she brings us so much joy!

 If the beauty of winter snow wasn't enough, God added a beautiful sunset for us to behold. He's such a show off!  Oh, I love how He continues to think of us.

The rest of the day, we enjoyed the snow from within our little farmhouse.

My beautiful study area. I love sitting here while the sun floods into this window.  

Adding fresh flowers through out our my way of bringing Spring into our lives a little early.  If not, I would go crazy without seeing some kind of greenery.

We live a slow life. One that is simple and quiet at home.  There is no other place I would rather be.   Anybody?

I am so thankful that you have taken the time to come by. How sweet is that!!!

Open Windows

A little Spring tease came by and blessed us with a warm sunny day.  O, how I need spring!
Waiting for the winter storm that is coming tomorrow (Friday).   But for now, I will  enjoy
the peeks of sun and the this warm day on the front porch swing.

Spring, please don't wait to long to come by again!   Anybody ready for Spring?

How is your weather?

 A cheery photo for a winter kind of day! 

Just a quick note to say Hello!  We are in a 7 day revival this week.  It has been great! Very refreshing to the soul.

 January always motivates me to brighten up my home for winter.  I have been thinking of ways to increase storage in my home.  I have several ideas that will increase storage making good use of our closets.  I will share all of this soon.  Stay Warm!  Baby it cold outside!

I have been missing you guys.

Simply At Home

A simple lovely day at home preparing all our dishes for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

 Today, the girls and I have prepared dressing, sweet potato crunch, avocado corn salad, and a pumpkin pies.  Our daughter and her family from the South has came in which makes this Thanksgiving even sweeter.

I love how (in the winter) the sun shines through our bedroom windows into the kitchen.
From our home to yours.

A Touch of Christmas

From Targets dollar section, I was able to make a couple of wreaths and ties. For only $4.00

I love keeping Christmas simple, as well as the decoration.

Is there a little Christmas showing up at your home?

Saturday At the Farmhouse


Slow down my life, let me enjoy the beautiful of fall with its golden leaves, 
 leaves of red and orange.  Nature walks to the creek to watch the 
falling leaves drifting away in the rushing waters.

 Lovely October, I love the things you bring with you.  

Hello Friends,

Today was beautiful with its warm sun, blue skies, and slightly cool breeze.  This Saturday was our first Saturday home in a long while.  Life for us has been so busy, it's time to say no to the busyness once again.  I love my slow days at home and they seem to be less lately. 

 This Saturday morning we took a short drive to a farmhouse diner for pancakes, eggs, biscuits and gravy, hot coffee which is farmhouse cooking at its best.   Returning back to our farmhouse I mowed three of our five acres, pulled weeds for most of my day.   I left my favorite chore for last, that was the washing of my front porch.  Y'all, It was good to be home, I can't tell you how wonderful it felt to just to stay home for the entire day.  Anybody?

Washing away the spider webs who thought they had found a winter home.  I was glad to be out here on the front porch.  I am usually a regular on my porch.  When you are to busy to set on the front porch, you are just to busy. Anybody?

  I have slowly been adding fall to our porch, maybe a few fall pillows, 
and I believe it will be completed. 

The sun is starting to set, and the porch is drying. 
So, sweet friends, I leave you for my front porch.
It awaits me with a cup of hot coffee, 
and a swing full of soft fluffy pillows.

Share your Saturday, I would love to hear from you.

Love your home, make it home for the ones you love.

Autumn Reflections

Autumn is waiting in the shadows of summer, waiting to fill our eyes with its beauty.

Fall has found its way into our farmhouse.  
I am slowly replacing our fall decoration, I love the white pumpkins.
Lately, I have being seeing blue pumpkins in town, they are so cute.

What is there not to like about this season?  I can't think of anything can you?

Each season, and each day is ordered by God.
 Fall brings changes in our little farmhouse of warmth, 
cozy soups, fall dish towels, and plenty of baking.
A cup of pumpkin latte, a cozy blanket,
and a good book to take us to places 
that we only dream of.

Cable knit sweaters
Hunter boots
Apple cider
Fall leaves
Cozy Fires 

These Autumn walks of golden sunlight and golden leaves are slowly coming our way. 

God brings us the beauty of Autumn, and reminds us that change will come,
and that He is with us.

Wishing you the loveliest fall day,  an apple-y kind of day.

I would love to hear from you.
