Saturday at This Small House #38

Happy Saturday Friends!

First, I want to welcome all of the new friends who have joined us at this small house! I’m so happy that you want to come along for the ride. I share all the things that are going on at this small house (I’m pretty transparent). As you may have guessed, we live in a small house and I’m always busy trying to make it a cozy welcoming place for family and friends. You can head over to ABOUT ME to find out more about me and my family.

Aren’t my zinnias amazing! I’ve never grown them before and I have no idea why?? They are the simplest flower. I just put the seeds in the ground and Oh! My! Goodness! They will be a summer staple at this small house from now on.

I’m still not 100% recovered from Covid and since last week now “Handy” has it! It was inevitable. I was home for almost a week before my tests were positive.

After the wedding, moving, and conferences, I finally have some time to get some projects done that have been on my to-do list for way too long and I can’t wait to share them with you.

Hope you are all having the most amazing weekend!
