Welcome to the Blessed Hearth this evening..
Just a wee post for you all..
This morning I arose early...
It is a bit dark out but the coffee light was burning.. grin..
I love waking up early and doing my thing before Terry gets up..
When he first retired many years ago I told him there was one rule..
And it was that I needed at least an hour before he could get up..
So the first morning he called out to me..
"Can I get up yet?"
I have laughed about that ever since...
But really when a couple are retired there are just some things that we need to give and take on and for me this was definitely an important issue.. smile..
He has things that I need to respect and if every once in awhile we get up the same time then no big deal but on a regular basis I need my wake up time..
I have a routine like most people ..
I always start the day with a time of prayer to the Lord and am so thankful for the blessings of yesterday and today...
Praying for protection for our sweet family and to have him guide our steps through the day...
Then I get my coffee and usually give my Mom a call..
Check my emails and such and do my lists for the day..
Then he can come out.. grin..
Do you girls have morning routines and perhaps a regulation or two?
On with the story..
I made a batch of spiced crab apples.. Terry found a tree at the farm with good apples on it...
Don't they look good?
Had some dear company while I finished up..
There were 2 bottles of the juice that I put up to have for our Christmas punch...
So my dears, this is all for now...
We are having a Keepers of the Home meeting on Sat. morning at 9 a.m.
If you live in Salisbury or nearby we would love to have you..
We are going to be making Mustard Pickles and a bit of Fall decor..
Just give me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope all is well with you all and may God bless you and keep you..
