Our Sunday ~ quietly, thankful for a lovely day

Our Sunday started very cold with grey clouds over head but I guess it must be expected seeing as we are heading into spring and with it we hope comes the spring rains.
My home as you know is still in the renovation process and very no lets try that again VERY cold inside no matter what we do to try and get warm, so my dear Rob rushed around made a hot cup of tea and we sat up in bed and drank it and talked and talked and talked.....it was a lovely start to a Sunday.

Grey sky over our oak tree

Our home and small property is called "pear tree cottage" and this is one of the pear trees today looking ready too for spring to arrive just a slight look of "bud burst" on this very old tree we believe it is about 45 years old.


Then it rained a view across the street to our neighbours place and their oldest son court out there trying to get his bike out of the weather - believe it or not it was a sun shower and the sun shined brightly as the heavy down pour came down.

Sunday afternoon what better then sharing a cuppa with a hard working husband on a deck not finished outside a home not finished but we were not worried we can enjoy each others company and fresh warm scones with fresh jam and cream any place that is for sure.

After a delish roast beef and vegetable dinner while Rob made some all important phone calls I decided to make some of Pea's from pea's corner Gran's Chocolate Macaroons and they are chewy and yummie that is for shore thank you for sharing the recipe with us Pea.

While the day was nothing special, to me it was a day to be thankful for many things but the company of a husband and a soul mate is everything.

This is my Sunday ~ shared with my blogger friends.

You have a wonderful knack of seeing the most important things in any situation. Your HOUSE isn't finished, but your HOME is your husband and family, and all's well with the world.

Heh, I made Pea's biscuits on the weekend too! Although I used Susie's substitution of peanut butter for the coconut. More blogger connections!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I LOVE your blog, too, and am happy I paid a visit. I am going to put you into my favorites. One of my dearest roommates from college (from India) married an English fellow and now the entire clan lives in Australia (Perth, I believe). Happy Spring to you!!!

I enjoyed reading about your day, and I think you summed it up perfectly in your last couple of sentences. Sometimes it's just the sharing (of something quite ordinary) with a loved one that makes a day special.

Sharon Kay said...

A wonderful Sunday with the one you love........who could ask for a better day then that. I do see the buds on that pear tree.

Kelli said...

It sounds like you had a lovely day at Pear Tree Cottage!

Hello and thank you for your visit!!
You have a nice looking husband there :) the cookies don't look bad either!
Would you please trade weather with me?

PEA said...

Hello dear LeeAnn:-) Ooooh I'm so thrilled that you decided to make the cookies...I love them when they're chewy like that!! Susie was telling me that she makes the same ones except with peanut butter instead of coconut so I will have to try them that way too! Loved all your pictures...I'd never seen pear trees before!! xox

Cold the weather may be, but with hearts as warm as you and Rob, your nest will always be cosy. Scones and cream on the back step at Malmsbury would have been even nicer than the ride to Yarra Glen!

What a wonderful Sunday spending it with your favorite person, even while stepping over unfinished projects! :o) That's true contentment!

Julieann said...

Your day seemed VERY special!!! I loved this post, and I just adore grey skies--isn't that wierd? LOL. Rainy days are my favorite days. Your macroons looked very yummy!

Susie said...

What a wonderful and special Sunday. I know just what you mean about it being that way because of the love of your life :) Those scones look yummy!
Looks like it will soon be spring!
The color we chose for our office is called Fresco Cream and is made by Behr. It's a nice warm color, I think..
xoxo

It sounds like a perfect day to me, Lee-ann. Honestly, that tea and conversation in bed on a Sunday morning sounds like complete bliss to me.
