The Simple Things

I don't know about you, but it's the simple things in life that I seem to get so much pleasure from, like these flowers that I just picked from my front garden...... The one that runs along beside the gravel driveway leading to our front verandah......... Come on in and have a cuppa with me...... The lovely little cow whistling kettle is sitting atop my wood fire at the ready....
Hahn, that cuppa is great after being out doing some of the weeding!  I have a saucepan on the stove with some diced meat in getting it nice and tender for my beef burgundy pie I'm making for dinner.  The recipe is here on my blog under the recipe tab if want to give it a go.  It's quite simple and always seems to be a hit!    There is just something really appealing about living a simplified life, but simple does not necessarily mean that work and organisation does not come into play!  The flowers did not grow by themselves..... I had to plant them, well, actually I had to dig a garden bed first of all, then consider what I wanted growing there as people entered the house (us included), and I wanted to have something in that bed flowering that would give joy during each of the seasons ( which meant having a couple of different things planted ).   
My homestead binder is another essential item that helps to keep things around here simplified....
My binder has sections as you might remember from earlier posts, it also has a plastic page that holds business cards, or any other type of card that is of that size.  Anything to do with the household & homestead, I try to keep here so that it is all in a central place!  Simple, easy to use, easy to file, easy to store!  You just have to set it up........ Maybe we can work on doing that tomorrow if you would like to.  Enjoy the rest of your day,    Hugs, Sharm
