~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

Yesterday was a day when things just seemed to hum along smoothly at home. I love days like that!
We are still discovering the various pretty plants and flowers that grow on the property. We took a walk in the morning to see what was blooming this week.
|Lilies beside the old shed|
|These little things were growing out of the brush heap in the back forty. What are they?|
The front porch is a happy place these days! Arden is always asking to go out on the "porridge!"
It's funny how much enjoyment a little girl can get out of a jug of water and a tea set!
|The tea set was one from my own girlhood!|
|This little creamer is used by Arden to water the geraniums and the lawn!|
I was real proud of myself for making my own homemade tomato soup for the first time! Tomato soup has always been one of my favourites, but I was looking for an alternative to the processed canned kind. This was delicious and quite easy. I made it in the blender with a can of diced tomatoes, some leftover new potatoes from the previous night's dinner, the last couple carrots in the fridge that I steamed up, various spices, and milk to make it creamy. I will definitely be making this again!
That's all for this week - happy summer days to everyone!
