We can Enjoy our Home.

This is one of my Paintings with Roses in Bloom, Just a small painting but I thought it looks very pretty.

I have put a painting on instead of a Basket of Flowers today. Maybe you could put a flower in vase or glass today in your home. To use as something special to look at. Today it is nice to think about the home that we are living in, can we make it look nice, can we tidy a bit of it up today that we have been thinking about and not done anything about it. Our home is our special place, so we should enjoy being in it.

Here is a Special Poem that I wrote – I thought you may like to read it and consider what part of your home you like especially to sit in. It could be just a corner of a room in a comfortable chair, or outside on the Patio or under a tree or by a flower bed, a swimming pool even a chair by the front door to watch the world go by. If you have pet it may like to join you.

Anyway here is the Poem:-

“Piggy’s Home”

It is so lovely here, so warm and lush to nuzzle in the damp dark earth under each tree, bush and grass. There is a muddy large swampy area just to the left of the gate. In it I can wallow, turn, sit and squirm to my hearts content. No one to bother me, no one to see just beautiful squashy mud and me.

Oh! the Bliss, the wonderful Bliss. To wallow like this is better than that old Hogs kiss.

I am so proud of my beautiful body Pink with dark black patches and spots. My lovely Pot Belly is beautiful to behold and I have the cutest curly tail that goes around at the back end of me. Well, you should see my piglet eyes my pointy ears and dainty trotters.

Oh! I am so beautiful, my Mistress tells me this sometimes –  even with a kiss. She says that she won’t mention that word BACON in my presence  –  I don’t know what she means as she whispers it to her friends.

Yes, they come to see me and gaze on my loveliness. My Mistress is so proud of me. She bathes me, hoses me down, dries me with a soft, so soft towel, tucks me under her arm and takes me into her house.  I am put onto my special bed, to watch their television. I lay and look in wonder at the pictures on the screen. Beautiful tidbits the family feed me from their own dinner before my Mistress takes me back to my Sty.

It’s lovely indoors but I much prefer my Pig Sty  –  it is my home, my very own.  I can snuffle around in it as much as I please. My home has big shady trees, with lots of tall grass   –  but the mud puddle, swampy area is the best place of all. I could lay in that for ever and ever and ever.

I am so, so blessed with such a beautiful home.

This is the Day that The Lord has Made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

A Poem:

Here is one of my Favourite Poems.

Little one sleeping there, Tender Love Divine. Little one Sleeping there, are you really mine? Has God given you to me, Tender Love Divine? Has God given you to me? Yes, – You’re truly mine.

I hope you like this poem – to me it is lovely for those who have a new born baby to look at when they are asleep as they look so beautiful. A true gift from God our Heavenly Father.

Psalm: Chapter 13 verse 6: I will sing to The LORD for He has been good to me.

*I Hope you have a Lovely Day Today *

Kale for Dinner?

My Basket of Flowers for Today are Real and Artificial – they do look lovely!


I thought it would be a good idea to show you what I did with some of the Kale to keep it fresh for a few days before cooking.

I used the Kale as a table decoration as you can see from photo below, it looks quite nice sitting in a vase on the table. I did not think it would be a good idea to put flowers in as the Kale was going to be eaten. However it would look good with some flowers in the vase to make a good presentation if you have not got any other green leaves to put in. With a couple of pretty flowers arranged with the Kale it would make a nice display of colour….Something different for a change.

Here is the Vase with the Kale Leaves in.

Cooking the Kale – one quick easy is to Wash it very well and chop or tear the leaves into smaller pieces, also cut up the stalks into bite size pieces – put into a saucepan and just cover with cold water – bring to the boil and then simmer for about 10 minutes. Drain and eat with your main dinner meal.

One way that is nice if you are not too keen on the flavour is to put Malt Vinegar and a sprinkling of White or Black Pepper on when you go to eat it. I find that way is very nice. Plus the fact that this is a good source of several vitamins that our body needs.

Another way is to serve with a soft cooked egg on top.

Well there you are just a small cookery lesson for today.

Christmas Time

Real and Artificial Flowers can look Beautiful together. 

It is lovely to think that it is Christmas Time once more so here is my Greeting for you.

Remembering Jesus Christ is Lord.

I hope you have a lovely Christmas Time with your family and friends.

Remember to take a bit of time out for yourself to enjoy that cuppa or visit a friend, especially if you know someone who is on their own.  It would be nice just to visit with a greeting card or take a special plate of food to them.  You don’t need to cook them something – a plate with cake or biscuits bought from the shop would be quite a treat for them.

Matthew Chapter 1 verse 21. It says: She will give birth to a Son and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.

Can you make a Basket of Flowers!

DSCN0750.JPG

Here is a photo of one of my latest Baskets of Flowers hope you like it.

The Flowers are real and artificial – the real ones are Geraldton Wax and Lantana with some Palm Leaves at the back, the Roses are the Artificial Flowers but they make the arrangement look very real.

*

So you can easily make a Basket of Flowers by choosing a nice Basket (not too large) then use some (Wet Oasis) in a plastic bag – so that water does not come into your basket.  If you do not have any Wet Oasis the use a suitable vase to hold water that will fit into your basket.

Arrange your Flowers with some tall leaves at the back (no need for Palm Leaves) some nice ones from a hedge or young branches from a tree will be great.  Then next put the tallest flowers in so that you have a nice background and  build up with the smaller ones coming to the front.

Sometimes if you have not got enough flowers put some artificial ones in to make a nice show. 

There you are then…..that could be a nice project for yourself as a table arrangement or to give as a gift to a friend for a special occasion.

Poem about a Rose

ApricotRose100_5092

This Painting I painted is called ‘Apricot Rose’ 

So I thought today it may be nice to put a poem on about a ‘Rose’.

When you think about it the Rose is one of the most favourite of flowers.  I don’t seem to have much success in growing them here because we get a lot of salt from the ocean and the soil is very sandy.  Yes I have tried growing them in pots but they have not grown very well, probably because I either give them too much water or maybe not enough.  Then in the hot weather the Sun comes in sometimes over 40 deg. Celsius and shrivels them up. 

So I am better off to paint them or to write a poem about them.

Here is a Poem for today with a picture of the largest Rose I have painted.
