What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Out to dry

Very soon my kitchen will be halved in size. As soon as the weather cools down (and stays PUT) I will be bringing in my patio furniture and once again-I will have a kitchen table. I have enjoyed the nice open floor of my 'summer kitchen' but the extra table/counter space will come in quite handy during apple season.

The other day, when we were having that cold spell (not so anymore-it will be 87 degrees today!) I brought in quite a few plants, cut off some herbies to dry, and did just some general overall plant preparations. Here are some of my herbies...hung to dry over the door in the kitchen.

I hope to house quite a few herbie pots during the winter, because I think I have gotten spoiled using fresh herbs. Oh the SMELL of them.

See the lavendar? That is ALL that my baby lavendar plants produced this year. Well, that minus a few stalks I tucked into washclothes when company came.

SOMEDAY, I will have lavendar plants with MASS profusions of aromatic purple beads lining the way to my door. I promise you that.
