Good July morning and welcome to Sunday Mornings at Home!
Today, I have the first reader recipe share and much more for this weekly lifestyle post.
I always love morning the best, no matter the season, but I especially love mornings in the summer since it is the coolest time of day.
A morning breeze…birds singing….the sun rising…it is just a perfect time to begin the day…and usually, the chirping of locusts seem a bit softer in the morning.
That oppressive heat HIGH has moved east for now, so clouds have returned. I much prefer a cloudy sky to a clear blue sky.
Clouds are one of God’s many accessories.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME – READER RECIPES
Last week, in the June 25 post I invited readers to send in their favorite summer healthy recipes to share with everyone.
I encouraged you send photo (s) with the recipe, but if you cannot, I will do my best to work something out.
I love it when you respond to a call to action.
Nancy S. is our first recipe to share….and she says it is simple and delicious!
1 diced cucumber
2 diced tomatoes
1 cubed green pepper
1/4 red onion
1T chopped basil
-all to taste
4T red wine vinegar
juice of one lemon
2T olive oil
I think I am going to make this in just a few days…thanks for participating, Nancy!!
Please send more everyone….send to my email with the subject line RECIPE share….at email@example.com.
We would love pictures, and love to know where you live….but you can participate without sharing anything.
My new flavor discovery this week was to eat sweet summer melon with fajita seasoning. That includes salt, pepper, garlic and onion in the flavors…I love it.
Something that simple is a party in your mouth…and even better if the melon is cold.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME – JULY EDITORIAL!
I like to share with you in Sunday Mornings at Home what is on my mind for posting the next week.
Since I love July so much, please allow me to share a scope of what is on my mind for the month.
This is the month I turn 70 and I am actually approaching my birthday with optimism and many thoughts on my mind.
It always appears as if the majority of the population is inspired by celebrities and influencers.
For me at this time of life, I am inspired by women in their 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond who are still doing what they love.
I will introduce you to one of these women tomorrow and she will guide us through some sale shopping techniques later in the week.
My desire for July this year is to give you a healthy dose of inspiration to face aging with positivity and joy!
And, of course….looking your very best!
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME – REFLECT
I love the windows in my home.
Sometimes they call to me and tell me to just stop a moment and reflect on what I see.
A moment like this can result in gratitude for where I am and for the beauty in the sky.
As we age, we must take time to reflect…with an optimistic outlook.
Attitude is so important to our every day living….it can actually make or break the day.
Each moment is a gift.
I am here right now to appreciate the flowers and the beauty I see in the windows.
When I write every day, I face a window because they can be so inspirational to me.
Is there a place in your home where you stop and reflect because it calls to you?
Would love to hear of these places?
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME – LATER IN THE DAY
This is what Sunday afternoons often look like around here.
But, I had to smile at this one. We were actually taking care of one of our sons’ dogs.
When the heat is on, the dogs love to lay on the tile.
I wanted to end today’s post with a smile!
Please share anything that is on your heart today….send us a recipe (particularly those who said YES, let’s do this) and make sure you…..
