 Our weekend was lovely, I hope yours was, too.  Tim's sister and brother in law were here on their way to hunt on our brother in law's family farm.  

We had a nice lunch out at a small family restaurant, that is local to us. We are trying to support them as much as we can.

Church was good, we are talking about making disciples.

Dusk on Friday night, and some scenes around the house.  There is beauty in everyday normal things, I try to notice and have tried to teach my kids to notice, too.

I think it helps to have a heart full of gratitude for what we do have.  In America we have abundance and don't even realize it.

The rally in DC this weekend was incredible, wasn't it?  All those people together and not one building lit on fire or looted.  

My in laws are on their way this morning, Tim is working and Kyle and I have school to do, so I better get moving.

See you tomorrow.


  1. No looting or burning buildings. -smile- Yes, IMAGINE that?!?!?!?!

    🍗 😋 🍗

  2. hoping your monday is laced with grace and every good thing, friend.

  3. No, no looting, no buildings burned down, yet a number of people who attended were attacked and terrorized by the ones who do loot and burn things down. The media has given that a good leaving alone. One of my family members is aghast that no one was wearing masks. How irresponsible! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Thank you for the beautiful images. That lavender sky is incredible.

  4. Hello--Just wondering where you bought the white diffuser? It is so pretty!

  5. A lovely weekend is restorative, isn't it? Hope your Monday was the start of a lovely week! Love the dried hydrangeas on your table!

  We are finally getting some blue skies with real clouds, and sunshine! I took sometime with Kyle and Kamryn's help to set up the deck ...
