We had this delicious pea and ham soup for lunch today, with, of course, hot milk bread from the oven. There's nothing better on a cool day. I've written a new post on my blog too. The link is in my bio. Now I'm going outside to plant and weed.
Hello ladies and gentlemen. I've just added downtoearthbaking to my accounts and we have one milk loaf there waiting for you to view her. The loaf was baked by hopflower. If you want to add your loaf to the gallery, please send a photo, along with your instagram link if you have one, and I'll put them both up in the gallery. Also, I've managed to retrieve my graciehetzel account and linked that to my account. I stopped posting there because I couldn't easily switch between accounts; now I can. I'll be adding a few recent photos of gracie to that account later today so if you want to see them, go to @graciehetzel. My accounts now are: home page: @rhondahetzel gracie's page: @graciehetzel baking page: @downtoearthbaking sewing page: @downtoearthsewing Stay tuned because I'll be announcing a new craft bee over on my blog in the coming week. We'll be making a tea cosy but to open it up to more people, you can either sew, knit or crochet your cosy. More details soon.
I've just written a blog post about my new milk sandwich loaf. It's delicious and easy to make. Instructions, ingredients list and photos are on my blog. Link in my bio. Have a great weekend, everyone!
It's hard to believe I've been blogging for 12 years. I have a new post on my blog this morning, come over and have a look. The link is on my bio. Have a great day! #startingablog #12yearsold
Happy mother's day to all the mums and grandmas. I hope you all have a lovely day. I'm here with Jamie doing a Naplan test. The real test is on Tuesday. These beautiful babies are mine at ages 4 and 5, they're now 37 and 38. 😳
It was close to perfect in the backyard yesterday afternoon. I've written about it in my blog today. Link in my bio. I hope you have a lovely day. 🙂

I think most of us want to feel we’re spending our time wisely, that we’re productive and contribute our fair share. There is no doubt that if you work as a doctor, teacher, retail assistant, factory worker, lawyer or truck driver, you’re part of the work force and can be rightly proud of the part you play in the nation’s progress and success. You'll be respected for the role you play in your community and as a bread winner for your family. - Homemakers care for children, manage the household budget, grow food, clean, cook, drive children to school and after school activities. Homemakers send students and workers off every day well fed, clean and ready to work after a sound night’s sleep. Homemakers play a large part in the nation’s progress and success too, but they are rarely acknowledged, let alone respected for it. - I know that my life is better now that I take care of my home and family as my main concern. It wasn't always the case. I never knew the significance of caring for a home but I know now that the day-to-day tasks of homemaking created the person I have become. There are many homemakers who balance work, volunteering, home businesses, homeschooling and homemaking. We all work in different ways but we are doing the same work, we're caring for family and home - our nations' true assets. - Home has become a centre point for me; it’s where I am made content and self-reliant by the work I do. I didn’t know a life like this was possible until I stumbled into it. My home is where I reclaimed my independence and discovered how to live well. It may not be everyone's choice to work at home doing household chores but I have been enriched by it and I doubt I would be as happy as I am without meaningful work to do every day. I don't want to live a life where I don't have to do any work, and I don't want to be dragged down by it either. I have found a good balance that requires of me that I plan, work and put in the time and in return I get this feeling of sublime contentment. And I am thankful that homemaking slowed me down enough to discover that, to enjoy the natural world surrounding me and to enrich my spirit.
I'm presenting a blogging for beginners' workshop and a writers' workshop on 25 and 26 May at my home. All the information is on my blog. The link is in my bio.
