Today was a busy homemaking day. Kolya and I froze 8 gallon bags of summer squash and zucchini from the garden. In the past I’ve given away our excess and not really taken the time to freeze it, but this year I’m both giving away and freezing. There’s plenty for both!

I had a “yes” mom moment tonight…with my 18 year old and my 24 year old who is home visiting the family! I baked 5 loaves of pumpkin bread tonight with the intention of having one for breakfast in the morning and freezing the other five for hospitality purposes (I love giving bread to a new mom or a new family in the community!)

But Erica and Anne asked if they could have some warm bread tonight. My “yes” meant one less loaf in the freezer but two happy girls enjoying home.

Tomorrow (Friday) is the last day for you to share your “yes” mom stories to be entered into the drawing for a Hearts at Home gift basket. If you haven’t read through the submission yet, take a few minutes to do so! I know you will be encouraged! Read and share the stories here!
