The best of both worlds...

Inside and outside..... This time of year I LOVE being able to get outside and play in the dirt. The breeze on my face, the warmth of the sun on my skin, the fragrance of blossoms teasing my nose, the feel of the freshly worked dirt in my hands and the promise of new life and fresh fruits of veggies. When I was little, from the time I could walk, my mom says I would always head straight for the sand box or closest mud puddle the moment I was allowed outside! I guess some things never change.... I just have made my 'playtime' productive!!

Inside my favorite thing to do is bake... followed closely with eating all the yummy things! Today was a day of the best of both worlds..... some time in the garden pulling weeds and some time in the kitchen baking. Can life get any better??

The garden is doing GREAT!!!!!! I finally have all 350 strawberry plants in the ground! Yee Haw!! I also finished planing our new grapes, black berries, raspberries, rhubarb, and bush cherries. I even dug up a small maple tree from the back area and moved it up by the house.... praying now that God does HIS thing and makes them all GROW!!

This evening in the kitchen I baked a batch of Double Chocolate Banana Muffins and my favorite breakfast: Peanut butter granola. Both recipes come from Homemakers Cottage, one of my favorite blogs.

Hope all is well with you! Are you enjoying spring?? Baked anything good lately??
ENJOY the MOMENT, for this is YOUR LIFE!!!!
