It has been raining good fashion (as the folks say) here at A Delightsome Life – I have all the doors open and love hearing the pitter pat of the rain on the pathways and the tin roof. Every once in a while there’s a delicious roll of thunder. It hasn’t rained here since April 18! Generally, spring is our wet season setting up the garden to endure the long, hot, dry summer days. I have been helping my garden out with weekly watering – sometimes daily – for those that are in pots.
So, because of the heavenly blessing, I am spending my day indoors. I began the morning with my usual two cups of coffee and am now looking forward to a refreshing cup of afternoon tea. What could be more refreshing than mint tea! Just to smell the invigorating fragrance lifts my spirits and gives me renewed energy.
We had a Delightsome – busy weekend – our middle child graduated from College – praise the LORD! Now, she and her husband can close that chapter of their newly married life.
I have been enjoying visiting a few blogs this morning as well as perusing my stack of May Victorias – so much scope for the imagination and delight for the feminine spirit!
I have some exciting things to share in the next few days.
I have been asked to review a couple cookbooks – one just arrived today. I can’t wait to share. I began flipping through the pages – completely Delighted by the down-to-earth advise as well as all of the recipes. Each page I flipped I said, ‘yes’ to myself. Each recipe looked wonderful and one I’d love to try for my family. I do have some marvelous cookbooks, but I have rarely felt I would/could serve each dish….more to come!
Another Delightsome share is that I am honored to be participating in a celebration to commemorate Julia Child’s 100th birthday in August. Each week we will be given a recipe of Julia’s to create – can you say Bon Appetit! Perhaps I’ll start wearing my pearls and don a Julia Child style apron….who knows! This is going to be a great month for my husband!
To all who’ve joined in my blog parties: A Return to Loveliness and Home and Garden Thursday
To all who’ve visited, left comments or who have quietly stopped by
You, are my encouragement, my inspiration and my joy!
I look forward to many years sharing my Delightsome Life
“I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.”
― Joyce Kilmer, Tree
I wish you the most Delightsome day!
