Simple Things

This morning I was thinking about what I should post. Not much creativity going on, this weekend. I want to be very real in my posts, so here it is, a few of the simple things that my sweet husband and I enjoyed this weekend. Hope you enjoy too!



A row of sunflowers that turned out not to be quite as large as the package indicated.

A bucket of corn from two young salemen that a friend and I purchased which turned out to be quite interesting. I will just say what we ended up with tasted very good!


Last but not least the strawberry fig preserves that I made from the figs we picked. Sometimes for me it is the simple things that bring the most enjoyment. How about you?


Have a blessed day!

It's always the simple things for me too. Blue skies, birds singing, fresh flowers. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

I love the sunflowers! I'm still waiting for mine to bloom. They are suppose to be the giant ones, perfect for drying the entire head. I have hopes of putting the head and all out in the winter for the birds.

A bucket full of corn on the cob... that makes me happy! I've got some homemade blackberry jam at home waiting for me.... that makes me pretty happy.

Oh yeah, and I didnt make it. Which means it will actually be good. :) So again, that makes me happy.

I love the sunflowers! I didn't have much luck with them, but my mom was able to grow them the size of dinner plates & larger when she was in NC.
