Good Morning!

Apr 23, 2009 | Gardening, On Motherhood, Views into my Day | 19 comments

Quelle miracle!

It’s 9:53 a.m. and I have managed, somehow to do the following:
-Prayed and read my Bible (a miracle in itself)
-enjoyed a cup of tea
-unloaded and loaded the dishwasher
-cleaned out the sink
-made my bed
-read to the kids
-got house “ready for the day” IE: picked up
-folded a load of laundry
-washed a load
-dried a load
-sqeeezed in a 30 minute workout
…and now I am off to the potager to spread compost and some manure with my chickens in tow.  We are going to plant our lettuces, radish and onions too.  Can’t wait.  Photos to come at naptime.
If only every morning could be like this.  That would feel so incredible!

    I’ve been to the doctor for my checkup after surgery (all is well praise God), had 1 cup of coffee, OH! showered…hhhmmmm……what else…..home schooled the kids…..and emailed you 😉

    I think your little one will like my post today 🙂

    Wow. I’m impressed! Hopefully the beautiful weather today will dry up our garden spot enough so we can till one more time and FINALLY get our onion sets planted!

    Lovely job Fancy Farmgirl — I too was walking down my stairs at 9:00 am (dressed, not in my pj’s) thinking, man, I have done a lot in the last hour and a bit!

    It does feel good! Here’s to accomplishing more mornings like this!

    I love mornings like that! They are rare indeed around here. I’m aiming to plant some seeds today, too! I checked out your gardening posts and photos–amazing! So beautiful! Is there rhyme or reason behind what you plant where? Or do you just mix it all up? This is my first year trying the potager idea.

    Oh lady, if I was there I’d so love to help you!

    Don’cha just love it when everything falls together?
    I made doggie biscuits for our Golden, 2 loads of laundry, dishes, toilets, and grocery shopping….but that took me all day!
    How’s the seedlings doing? Did you ever sell half your seeds?

  9. Barb and Steve

    Obviously you don’t get stuck on the computer reading every morning like I do.

  15. Victoria

    Let me know when you need someone to weed! Or watch the kids while you do, or move rocks or go shopping.. Maybe really soon?
