As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

On My Back Porch

On the back porch today is this lovely verbena.

My green-thumbed parents potted this for me, and Mom delivered it this week.  We have been concentrating on in-the-house projects and have done next to nothing outside, so this beautiful plant was much appreciated.  (Thanks Mom and Daddy!)

Also on the back porch...Pinky checking out a cardboard box.  (Of course.  She's a cat.)   
What is it, Pinky?  What?  Are you sure?

Pinky says it's the new sink!! 

Installation planned for next week...


  1. Pretty plant and nice Momma and Daddy!

    Cant wait to see your new sink!!!!

    Well, and the kitchen in all it's glory!


  2. What a wonderful surprise from your parents! I am sooooo looking forward to seeing your new sink installed. And I am so excited for you, I have been wanting a farmhouse sink for so long, I am also moving closer each day to deciding to painting my oak cabinets, and getting that sink too! ~smile~
    Enjoy your day.

  3. Woot! Yay! Yabba dabba do!

    Sweet little pot of flowers that must go a long way to brighten up that spot and bring a grin to your face just seeing it there.

  4. A new sink! Hooray!
    Love the pot of flowers, and especially since it was brought by your parents!
