I used to be a stay up until the wee hours of the morning and sleep in until the early afternoon kind of girl. I would finish a book during the quiet of the night.

But now, I set my alarm early so I can sit around and enjoy my coffee and play on my phone, or read a little before I have to start my day. 

Right now I have my windows open to get an early morning breeze and some fresh air coming into the house before the heat of the day gets here. ( oh my goodness, I am my mother's daughter! )

As I sit on the couch looking out the front window, I feel so blessed! The hills and the trees are lush and green, and the clouds are beautiful! 

I can hear the birds chirping and the frogs croaking down by the creek. What a wonderful, almost loud, greeting they make.

Thank you God for helping me enjoy my mornings!

There is so much hope when planting a garden. Hopes for an abundance of vegetables - enough to make spaghetti sauce and enough to freeze. Enough to make you almost tired of cucumber salad  and salsa. Almost. 

I had my first little "harvest" today. Seven crunchy radishes. I added them to a salad and they were delicious.
