Fresh From The Garden
I am blessed to have a dear friend and prayer partner in California who loves giving to others from her garden. When we lived in the same town, Cyndi would bless our family with fresh pears, cherries, apples and lemons every season. Produce was one of the things I missed most when we moved and this year my friend sent out a box of Meyer lemons from her yard. I have been enjoying having lemon for my water, fish and anything else I can think of; I've resisted the urge to bake because I'm trying to cut back on sweets. I am also adjusting to a shorter season for flowers and never realized how spoiled we were by being able to plant year round. I now appreciate gardening so much more than I ever have before. Cyndi would ask me if that means I'm thinking of "coming home" as she calls it and my answer is no, I love Colorado~where else can you see 3 bald Eagles in one day? I love winter and snow and this makes me appreciate springtime so much more. Have a rich day enjoying your home and area.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 37 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 38 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
