all about flowers

Today’s been wonderful.
Waking an hour before everyone else.
1 Corinthians, Psalms, Proverbs…French and English.
Working out (it makes you ready for the day!).
Accomplishing a full day of schoolwork…already a week and half into my last year.
Baking carrot-apple muffins and a peach-blackberry cobbler (that I can eat!).
Playing my harp for half an hour just for fun, and thinking about all the challenging pieces I want to add to my repertoire.
Reading an article online, and knowing what a priori meant after starting physics only a week ago.
Having time to cross-stitch, because I was so productive yesterday!
Limiting time on Facebook, due to a challenge with my brother (it’s actually more fun to try not wasting time on Facebook!)
After supper I went outside to prune back my rosebushes. One of them reached nearly seven feet tall while I was gone for the summer, but I wanted to wait for it to bloom before cutting it back. I just love roses! Part of me wants to plant them everywhere, but I still want to learn how to grow other flowers. 🙂

Our hydrangea bush has produced so many gorgeous blooms this year. One day while I was waiting to take pictures of Caleb and Natalie taking care of the beehive, I decided to count the hydrangea blossoms. One of our two bushes had 130-150 hydrangeas on it! God certainly gave that plant special blessing this year! 🙂

My bedstand…tonight I’ll be listening to the Lord of the Rings soundtrack, reading somewhere between page 200 and 300 of Les Miserables, dreaming about flowers and harps….

    Beautiful flowers there! And how wonderful to have so many hydrangea blossoms. I love those :)I love getting up early and exercising… I try to run 2.5 miles every other day. Eventually I want to start doing more or at least doing something on my days "off".
