In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

We begin outside the door with a few photos of the plant life. These are roses and smell really nice after the sun has been on them all afternoon.

This is common in many of the landscapes around the housing development, it is a type of lily and comes in several colors.

My favorite hydrangea

WE stopped to take a picture of more plants and the yard by the garage

Ellie lilkes the yellow flowers

There are vacant lots all around us. There should be more houses here but I think that changed when the economy went belly up.

Not much to see on this block..Ellie says move along gramma

some of our can't hear it but a little dog is barking at us from the screened in porch

maybe some day they will build more houses but for now it is a wide open space

Someone told us they might build a park here. That would be nice to take the grandkids to and it would be in walking distance..very close. Now we have to drive to the parks, that is one of the down-sides to living in a new neighborhood

Well Ellie thinks it is time to go home for lunch and grandma agrees..all that walking made us hungry

I am going to retire from babysitting as of September 1. Ellie will begin daycare at a center and I hope she will enjoy her new caregivers...we say she is starting school and she thinks that might be fun. I am off to other projects and some much needed rest and quite time. Maybe I can finally finish that cookbook I am trying to write in the spare time I never have enough of. How does SEASONAL COTTAGE CUISINE sound? I am looking for a picture of a cottage for the front cover and trying to decide on the font for the title..lots of decisions. Hi to my family who all will get a copy if I ever finish it.

I agree with Sandra, you can't finish what you don't start Alice! You are a great cook and baker and the family would love a copy of your cook book! Please?
