This is day 10 of 31 days of Autumn Bliss. One thing I love when I walk outside is something beautiful to look at...what could be more lovely than roses. I plant pretty roses with this in mind...can I use them for my table?
Why not go to a little extra effort and plant pretty flowering plants and bushes?
And why not surround yourself with loveliness...on any level.
Yes it takes a little extra effort...but the rewards are happiness and joy when you walk outside and see God's beauty growing all around you. I think anyone can have generic green plants and shrubs, but for a couple dollars more ( I buy one rose bush a month) you can surround yourself with colorful soft loveliness.
And the number one reason we go the extra mile in surrounding ourselves with loveliness....is so that when we gather together, it is an enjoyable gathering. You can spend your life wishing you could have done this or that but I believe it is worth the energy to make things beautiful now...so that you can enjoy beautiful surroundings now.
I wanted to show you what was going on while I was setting up our fall table...the chickens were making all kinds of noise...apparently someone layed an egg by the bathtub and wanted EVERYONE to know about her accomplishment!
Wherever there is a hen...there is a rooster to follow! Hahaha....lots of commotion when it comes to chickens!
Thanks so much for coming by. Loved visiting with you!
