Simple Satisfaction

Day begins early
screen door open
sounds from the woods
and Callie always watches
my morning yoga.
Early morning call from over the ocean
left me smiling
for the day....
Early morning in the garden and rain is needed
Spent an hour on tractor
 but did not venture far into the woods.
It looked cool, shady and inviting
but paths have not been cleared in a while.
It was 90 in the shade
Simple evening meal
my squash, zucchini, onion and will sprinkle cheese and bacon on top.
At market yesterday purchased some Bok Choy, wanted a different green and pleased daughter mentioned it.
So accustom to putting chopped carrots in cabbage and without thinking
it was added.
Sweet tea, corn bread and a heavenly slice of chocolate cake brought home from last city trip has been waiting in the freezer for the end of meal on a day like this.
It has been a very good day....

Hi, I found your from Marge. I could not find your name. I have been blogging for about 10 years. My webhome is linked at my blogger site. You have a lovely home from what I see. I live in the city in So Ca. Nice to meet you!

I loved the glimpse into your lovely home there in the woods.

Your dinner looks and sounds delicious.

I'm going to go have a slice of freshly made banana bread.

Have a nice evening and a lovely day tomorrow ~ FlowerLady

I just stared and stared at the enlarged picture of your home--I love those floor boards!!! I have a nice tiny yellow with white frosting loaf cake that I will eat for my snack tonight--just eat a bit and save for tomorrow.

Lovely way to start the day with the door open and the sounds of nature wafting in on the coolish summer morning air. All too soon, the house needs to be closed up to keep in the cool.
Your veggie meals look so good. I adore bok choy.
That chocolate cake sounds wonderful.
Hope you enjoyed every morsel.
Very hot here, too. The humidity is stifling. I am appreciating the work AC today.
