Stir My Heart Saturdays…
Stir My Heart…I heard that a while back and it really made me think. Seeing as today is Saturday, I figured I devote this post to something good and call it Stir My Heart Saturdays. My intentions are to have something stir my heart daily but sometimes life just gets busy.
My usual Saturdays consist of getting up early to go to the local farmers market. I like to pick up farm fresh eggs from one of the vendors and then grab any other items that I might need for the week. This Saturday was pretty much the same as any other except my Mom came with me. She had been wanting to go but due to other commitments we hadn’t been able to make it happen. We grabbed some eggs, picked up a few delicata squashes, which are finally back, and headed home. If you’ve never heard of a delicata squash, then click on this link to see what you’re missing out on Delicata Squash. I’m also obsessed with this recipe Maple Roasted Delicata Squash because I love everything that has maple syrup. My sweet tooth is out of control sometimes.
My Mom lives about a half block from me so I typically walk to and from her house whenever possible just to get some extra activity in for the day. This day was just like any other except while I was walking home, with my eggs and delicata in hand, I noticed one of the neighbors trimming her roses. I said good morning and smiled as I walked past her but couldn’t help but notice her roses, they were beautiful. My front yard has about 6 rose bushes as well and when they are blooming it is a sight to see, they’re just stunning. As I walked past I decided I would ask her if I could trim one of her roses to see if I would grow in my garden.
Well let me tell you, I am so glad I did. I spent over a half hour with Agnes, got to know her and her Mother and they not only gave me the rose I asked for but trimmings from a few succulents they had in their garden. I’m grateful for times like these because they remind me of the little things and how something so simple can translate into something so special.
