Hearts for Home- Ist March

   I am joining in with Gae at Cherished hearts at Home in her weekly Hearts for Home challenge. It is open for any to join, just link back to her page:)
   The idea is to list 5 or 6 things to make your home a Home! Things that will improve life at home for your loved ones, and yourself of course:)

     1. I am going to be paying LOTS of attention to food this week. I'm trying to up my Poots intake of fruits and veggies, as he needs more fiber in his diet. Well, to tell you the truth, we ALL do! Last night I served three veggies with dinner, sweet corn, sweet potatoes, and broccoli. YUM! We do a lot of frozen foods and root veggies in the winter, as fresh produce is a bit dear at this time of year.
     2. Make up a batch of bread, preferable with some whole grains, to make Poot some sandwiches to take to work for lunches. I think I will be making up my mom's oatmeal molasses bread:)
     3. Get up every morning, and prepare some oatmeal and juice for Poot before he heads to work. THIS is gonna be a toughie, as I am not an early riser, and I will have to be getting up at 5am! So far, for the last two mornings, I have been successful. so wish me luck, and pray I can keep at it:)
     4. I want us to start eating the majority of our dinners at the table. Right now we only eat their once in a while, and I would really like to change that. When at the table, we say a prayer, and talk, and enjoy good food and good friends together, and I want that to be an everyday thing:) Plus, Poot likes it, and HE IS the head of our house, so I should be trying to please him:)
     5. I really should clean out and organize out coat closet this week, its a bit of a mess, and that bugs me! I'll do before and after pictures, maybe the "before" pics will be enough to shame me into keeping it neat in the future!


  1. Sounds like you have a healthy and yummy week planned. Have a wonderful week. ~Alana~

  2. A good week planned, custard goes in the post tomorrow and looks/feels like a pack of somethng dodgy! I bet customs will open it at the border! love froogs xx

  3. Thanks Alanna, and HAHA FQ, I hope it makes it here, Mmmm:) Thanks for sending it!

  4. Dear Mrs Evans,
    Wow a wonderful week of real comfort in your home.
    We have had dinner at the table for so long now it is a habit although we do sometimes have a TV, well DVD dinner on the floor.
    However it isn't the same and the family unity is not shared. I love candles and lovely settings especially.
    We are blessed to have some fresh of the farm potatos for dinner tonight and I am going to bake them and serve with, sourcream, coleslaw, bacon and cheese. Very yummy.
    have a productive and homely week

  5. Oh, Gae, I do LOVE potatoes! Baked, mashed, fried, in a salad:) How I LOOOONG for summer veggies, but soon, it will be hot and after that it will be sweltering, and I will miss the snow again, funny how that is! You are so blessed, having such a crowd! I hope you enjoyed you dinner:)
    God Bless,

  6. This promises to be a good week Mrs. Evans!

    I pray that Our Lord gives you the strength to wake up every morning to be with your darling husband. Waking up early is a bit of hassle, but once you get used to it, it becomes the norm.

    Blessings In His Name,


  7. What a great list you have there, Mrs Evans!
    So homely and caring :-)
    I hope it all goes well for you, dear lady.
