Early in the morning, I get right to the chores.
While watering flowers, I cut a few to enjoy inside – for the table.
I cut herbs, too.
Apple Mint sprigs for garnishing and making Watermelon Lemonade with Apple Mint Sugar.
Vegetables gathered and washed. (OK, washed maybe, but these are from a farmer’s market. How I wish we could grow tomatoes in The Land of Making Do!)
Wrong type of soil, too many predators, warnings from neighbors not to even try. Tried it anyway. After several failures, I now listen to neighbors.
We bought a watermelon at the farmer’s market, too. The rinds would be beautiful with all the greens on the table, but I always cut them off. Sorry – an old habit from days of young kids at home. It’s just easier to eat watermelon this way. And, it IS all about the eating, isn’t it?
Peanuts parched and ready for daily snacks. New potatoes boiled and cooling in the colander for potato salad later today. HH loves his potato salad, y’all (recipe coming soon).
The places are set and ready. The yellow rose napkin rings get a lot of use around here.
Getting more mileage with the lace-trimmed hanky napkins, too.
The table is ready, door flung open for that morning farm-fresh air! (Don’t worry – flies aren’t awake yet.)
Won’t you have a seat and join us?
Thank you, Lord, for these blessings. You provide far more than we deserve. Amen.
Tomorrow, I’m sharing a couple of breakfast items I’ve tested from other blogs. Both recipes are now in my permanent recipe file, and you’ll want to try them! Be sure to sign up for my posts by email (over at the upper right in my sidebar) so you won’t miss what’s coming in the future. 🙂
What’s on your breakfast menu? Is your table set and ready? Any visitors coming to your house this weekend?
