The heart of my home . . .


Time to rise & shine.

Would you care for a cup of coffee? A little cream & sugar?

My husband won't touch the stuff, but the last thing he does at night is set up my coffee on a timer to go off in the morning. Just a small thing, but so sweet of him. I'll have to remember that on Father's Day ; - )

Ever since I can remember I wanted a yellow kitchen with the sun shining through the windows in the morning. Seemed like such a bright & sunny way to start the day.

We have a lot of days in North Carolina where the sky is a beautiful shade of blue. They call it Carolina Blue. It goes especially well with yellow.

Kitchen ~ the heart of home

So much time is spent here planning meals, organizing recipes, writing snail mail and even paying bills : - (

A refreshing glass of ice tea with a yellow lemon and a sprig of mint helps make the tasks more enjoyable especially in this heat we have been having .

Hmm, I wonder what I should make for dinner tonight?

Baking is something I especially enjoy doing.

I find it very relaxing to bake . . . cookies, brownies, cakes, pies. Yum!!

Is there a more homey smell than something wonderful baking in the oven?

Speaking of baking - it has been far too long since we have had a homemade goody in this house and I have a new brownie recipe I've been wanting to try . . . So, I guess I'm off to do a little baking.

If you have been baking recently, let me hear about it. I always love to try new recipes.

Once I get this blogging down pat I will even start sharing recipes with you.
