Hearts for Home: July 14th

In my weekly ‘Hearts for Home’ post I am encouraging myself and others to commit to thinking about what 4-6 things we can do each week to bring our thoughts, prayers and actions to keeping our ‘Hearts for Home’.

We are on holidays here so my commitments for this week have a different rhythm:

To experiment with different lemon recipes; our tree has a bumper crop.
My little people enjoying cooking with me, my bigger ones enjoy eating:)

To keep our picture display shelves interesting and inviting.
Then to sit and read with the children who ask to be read to.

To make our learning room inviting for next term.
Space constraints make this difficult but I need to think of creative ways to achieve this.

To continue my craft projects with my girls.
Doll making with Princess, dress making with Koala.

Please consider joining in and supporting one another in our vocation. I look forward to meeting you at Cherished Hearts for Home.

    Lemon risotto! If you have any Stephanie Alexander books, hers is _great_! (Essentially a risotto, with lemon rind and juice and parmesan, maybe a bit of parsley… sometime I should make it again, and blog it…)

    I made Lemon Cordial this summer! _Really_ basic! Many recipes out there, but I was happy with the one I used.

    Welsh Nectar (Lemonade). Easy enough for smaller kids to make (my 5 yo, for example), and _really_ good… like soft drink should be, bubbly, tasty and a _little_ bit sweet (follow the recipe at the link, but use 6 lemons instead of the rhubarb). I've also made this with raspberry, and I need to get on and try it with oranges.

    I can't even imagine the joys of having my own lemon tree! WOW!
    This is a lovely list…it is dear to imagine you and your children enjoying these activities together!

    You're not in Australia then:-) It's pretty much the one 'given' in any back yard:-) There might well be a passionfruit as well, but a lemon tree is hard to avoid:-) I think I've only ever lived in one house that _didn't_ have one—and that was a rental unit, with no garden to speak of:-)

    Ok Erin,
    What are you making with those girls? Come on, I need to see.
    How about pics of that cool picture book stand.
    Any lemons to send down here.
