Hearts for Home

Today I am joining in with Gae from Cherised Hearts at Home . She has a weekly post called Hearts for Home which is open for others to link up with and share some thoughts on home-centred ways. She encourages us to think of 4-6 things to commit to each week to make homelife special and to bless us as keepers at home.

Last week I did do big breakfasts every morning.  Hubby appreciated it as did the rest of the family.  It is something I need to continue to work on doing.  I completed the basement room which took me way less time than I thought it would and we are so enjoying having it.  I didn't get to planning our next semester so that will definately go back on my list this week.

This week I commit to:-

1. Plan our upcoming semester.  I need to get this done because my daughter writes her Social exam on Friday and we will be starting our new semester on Monday.  So, now I have a deadline.

2. Garden.  I need to finish bringing everything in and cleaning it up.  We are supposed to have nice weather this week but it looks like rain is coming by the weekend so I need to be outside most of this week.

3. Help my daughter review for her Social exam.

4. I have a decorating idea for our verandah using some things from the garden so I hope to get that decorated for fall.

5. Breakfast, lunch and supper.  I need to make sure that with the busyness of bringing in the garden I don't forget to get good meals on the table for my family.

~I think that if ever a mortal heard the voice of God it would be in the garden at the cool of the day (F. Frankfort Moore)~


  1. Sounds great! I've gotta keep working on big breakfasts every morning still.

  2. Dear Alana,
    It can be difficult when we are in the harvest of the garden to have time to prepare meals. Lots of simple and sometimes repetitive meals can be a help.
    I love the decorating of the verandah, cant wait to see the results
    I love what you have done with the basement. It was a lot of work but you can really see the way it is so useable now.
    I have had it open tracking your progress over the week but everytime I was set to comment something happened here.
    I really enjoyed the makeover thank you for sharing it.
    Oh and that lamp is just to lovely I wish I could find one like it.
    Many blessings this week, perhaps and easier and more restful one for you (maybe)
    God Bless

  3. I love that quote! It sounds like you have a very busy week planned. I can't wait to see how you decorate your verandah.

    Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

  4. Hello Alana, my you have been busy-and done a great with your basement! I am looking forward to seeing your verandah. We don't often decorate them for seasons in Australia, which I think is a pity. I enjoy seeing our northern hemisphere sister's efforts so much that I feel like doing it too :-) God bless you for taking such good care with your beloveds breakfasts. Have a wonderful week! blessings..Trish

  5. Thank you everyone. It has been a busy week but I love being able to look back over the week and seeing what I have accomplished. ~Alana~


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
