are my favorite, I think. We thought about making a quick trip to a city somewhere on President's Day, but both of us have declared that we're really glad we stayed here today.

Today has been one of the days where we stay in and enjoy. We focus on good food and getting chores done. We make smoothies. We have "dinner" at the noon meal. We enjoy the giant snowflakes that fell all day long. We eat soup for breakfast (me. I did that.) We turn on the Harry Potter soundtrack. We make venison stir fry. We fold laundry and run the dishwasher. We bake sunflower seed cookies. We call direct tv about our bill, again (Grant). We take two 2-hour naps (Hadley). We put some chili on for tomorrow. We wonder at how the day passes so quickly when we're all home together all day.

Pretty nice for a Monday in February.

Could you share your recipe for sunflower seed cookies? We ate some delicious ones in China a few years ago from a little roadside stand and my husband always wants me to try and make them! :)

Cozy and good, warm food just go together, don't they? I don't blame you for eating soup for breakfast. :-)

days like that are my favorite... everyone home and good smells coming from the kitchen. Happy Monday.

That sounds about perfect. Well, everything minus the soup for breakfast; I have an inordinately hard time starting the day with salty food unless it's cold pizza. Yes, I'm fully aware that I'm weird. ; )

soup for breakfast sounds so comforting :)

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
