Fri Day Off From Work

I am enjoying my day off today. Rick has worked on my prayer/quiet time bench today. He is putting new boards on it and he pressure washed it. I have washed my rugs and mopped my kitchen floor on my hands and knees. Aren't you all proud of me? It was long over due. Here is a picture of my bench with the new wood. The old wood was well weathered and cracked. Doesn't it look pretty? I had a Calla Lilly planted in my front flower bed but it wasn't doing well and I found out it didn't need very much water so I replanted it today in a pot and set it out by my bench. I hope it recovers. It was such a pretty lavender. Here are some pictures of our garden: tomatoes, peppers, a new 2nd row of green beans, lettuce, stevia plants and squash. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for sharing on Friday with Kelli.

Saturday, July 4 add on: We have been eating lighter and healthier. But today I have picked 2 green peppers from the garden and I am fixing an omelet. I also found some fresh side in the freezer that my brother from Ohio gave me. For those of you not familiar with it: It is like bacon, sliced, only no additives or preservatives, just the pork. I have it in the skillet now and must get back to it. Also, chopped potatoes in another skillet. Have a good 4th.


  1. Your bench looks just beautiful and the garden is growing so well. Wish I could say the same. We have been having unbelievably wet weather up here. Our garden looks rather sad.

    I washed my kitchen floor on my hands & knees last week, too. What a great feeling of accomplishment!

    Thanks for stopping by to see my cookbooks! Stop in any time.

  2. beautiful bench... blessings

  3. Its good to see that people still have a place,(a quiet place)to where there's no one there but them and God. God sure likes that one on one time. Bless you

  4. Wow, Dad did an awesome job your prayer bench Mom! It looks great and brand new! Give him my thumbs up! :o)

  5. Love the garden pics. Coming along quite nicely, too. Dinner sounds good. I think I'll make something similar for ours tonight. :) Thanks for the idea!
