Every morning before the sun gets too hot, I go to the gardens to pick what will be needed for the day. Everyday since the first week of June there has been lettuce. Yesterday I harvested some baby carrots, and another handful of garlic scapes to go with our lunch to go with our dinner.
Our lunch of spaghetti topped with garlic scapes and onions, a fried egg and lettuce.
A fresh bouquet for our table - cosmos, bachelor buttons, black eyed susans and tansy.
We were supposed to go see our oldest daughter's staff dedication last night after she finished her week of training at a nearby summer camp, followed by icecream and fireworks. Abe and Emily were so excited. But, when we went to start our van, it was obvious very quickly that the alternator was going. I am thankful for a neighbor/friend that lent us their car so Mike could go pick Abby up and our pastor is here early already this morning to take Mike to get the part. I am so thankful we didn't break down at 10:00 pm on the side of the road on our way back home if we had gone last night. The children's disappoint has mostly passed and today we are thankful for all of God's provisions. After we sell our house, we are going to take a bit of the money and buy a second used car, probably a subaru outback or forester because our one car is nearly at 200,000 miles.
Wishing you a beautiful day!
