One of my favorite plants to grow in a pot. 🌿
I really enjoy making oil & vinegar's each year with the peppers I grow on my patio. Peppers are some of my favorite things to grow in a pot too. I think they are pretty in a pot and Oooo sooo easy to drag in the house when the weather turns cold. lol! This week was my week to pick-some-peppers and get my oil & vinegar bottles done.
Last Sunday was such a beautiful day. 🌞
The sunlight was shining through my kitchen window all day long and it made me want to make oil & vinegar's. As I was getting my things together I decided to take a few pics and record a small video clip to share with you guys. In fact I'm editing it right now. I should have it ready to publish this Sunday...in my series called "Peaceful Sunday" that's on my Youtube Channel. It's going to be episode 2. Keep an eye out for it if you like this kind of thing.
Ahhh yesss! 😀
You can't make oils & vinegar's without fresh tabasco peppers. I took this pic right after I picked them. On the left are the already dried ones and the one's in the bowl are the one's I just picked.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak 💖
Yes friends I do hope you enjoyed this sneak peak of the video project I'm working on for Sunday. I would love it if you could tell me what herbs or spices that you enjoy adding to your oil & vinegar's. I haven't added mine in yet. What's your favorite combination? I would love to try a new one for this year.

I always look forward to Sundays
It doesn't matter if I have to work or not... the day always seems magical to me. I think it's because of my fond memories from way back when I was a kid.
So Many Smells
I remember when I was a kid how special Sunday was. We always put on our best clothes and went to Sunday School then preaching. I remember my Mother and Daddy always smelled so good for church and the house was just covered in beautiful smells too. LOL!
Comfort in peaceful memories
It's funny how smells stick with you a lifetime. I remember my Mother cooked the best meal of the week on Sundays. I remember my Mother would always light her vanilla candles she had throughout the house and I don't know which smell I enjoyed the most....
- The roast, carrots & potatoes with gravy cooking in the oven, (for me)
- the made from scratch chocolate cake she was icing on the table (for Daddy),
- the hot coffee in the coffee pot, (for all kin folks)
- the wild flower bouquet that Daddy would bring her,
- the oak & pine wood burning in the fireplace,
- or the vanilla candles that she always had burning. (for her)
My Peaceful Sunday
Today I realized that I've worked every Sunday for a few months now. As I was drinking my morning coffee I noticed how tired I was... even though I had a good nights sleep. My mind started thinking about how life was at home as a kid. I looked down and noticed I was drinking out of one of Mothers matching cup and saucers. I thought to myself... I would love to feel some of those old days again.
So......., I made the decision to not do a thing today and enjoy Sunday as close to the way I remembered it as a kid. Now that's going to be pretty easy to do because I live in the house I was raised in. LOL! My loving Mother & Daddy are already with God but I hold their memories close to my heart. Especially today~
I pulled out my Mother's dishes that she always used when she set the table. She always set the most beautiful tables. I pored my coffee in one of her matching cup and saucers. I just love dishes just like she did. LOL! I lit 3 vanilla candles throughout the house; one of which is in the center of the kitchen table which has been there for about 30 years. Yep! A beautiful round cut glass candle holder that looks like a crystal ball. LOL! I then went outside and gathered a small bundle of firewood and made a small fire in the fireplace. Then I went back outside and looked for any wild flowers that were blooming. I cut me some Golden Rod look-alike's to make a flower arrangement with. I even had a roast in the freezer that's cooking right now as we speak. Yep! The only thing missing.... is them.
Then I though...
I think I will video a peaceful Sunday morning for my Internet friends. :)
Lot's Of Love to everyone! "Live Everyday like a Holiday"
