I have many things on my agenda today. Garden and yard clean up are at the top of my priority list. The only problem with this besides the heat is that I have to convince 6 other people in our household that these are the priorities for the day. I know my husband will be in agreement, but I am still unsure of the little people!
I seem to always carve out time on my Saturdays to play in the flowers. I posted one of my favorite pictures of our daughter that was taken several years ago. I caught her in a group of weeds. She was picking Queen Anne's Lace and making bouquets. (She is a girl after my own heart)! I have 3 flower arrangements that have to be redone today. I may stop by a craft store while I am in town today and pick up some foam for cut flowers. This way I can make a different kind of arrangement. I haven't done any of those types this year. I can guarantee that Hope will be right along side helping me.
I was informed last night that we will be attending the county fair this evening. I love the fair, but it is blazing hot here right now. I enjoy the fair when the evenings are a bit cooler. However, there is a strong man contest tonight that my husband and children want to watch. A good friend of ours puts this event on every year. If I get any great pictures, I will post them.
I don't think I have anything to can today. I may even put my canner back in the laundry room for a few days. During the major part of the canning season, my canner is a permanent fixture on our stove. It isn't the pretties item, but it sure is functional~I canned 7 pints of Salsa yesterday.
I best get off the computer and get started with this beautiful day that God has made. Hope you enjoy your Saturday wherever God has planted you.
grace and peace,
