My Goals Are So Much Simpler These Days

There was a time before I was a housewife that I had lofty goals similar to those of many other college girls. I thought I wanted to make gobs of money, climb the ladder, and be somebody, as if I already wasn't somebody.

Happy Easter Everyone!

I hope you all are having a blessed day, whether at home, church, or anywhere else! I've missed you all.

Tonight for Easter dinner we will be having ham, sweet potatoes,cole slaw, stuffing, deviled eggs, and apple crisp, and of course my first batch of iced tea of the season.

It is always nice to see nature come back to life in Spring. So yesterday, with my husband, I got started direct sowing some flower seeds in the garden.

I am also planting tomatoes, spinach, and scallions aplenty this year. There is a lot of garden work to do, so we're doing a little each day.

We planted two apple trees last year in our front yard -- a red delicious and a granny smith. One of them has blooms this year, which means, we might start to get some apples on them already!

It would be so nice one day in the future years to have apple pies, apple jelly, candy apples, etc. to look forward to.

Enjoy your day and I'd love to read your questions and comments below!
