Slow Living Sunday at Home | Strawberry Cake

Sharing is Caring

Join me for a Slow Living Sunday at Home while we make a Strawberry Cake for Mothers Day, cook from the garden and hang flowers to dry. All in the name of slow living. I hope you enjoy today’s video and post.

Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Hello and welcome back to a quaint life.

Today is Sunday. My favorite day of the week. We just got home from church. But it’s no ordinary Sunday, it’s Mothers Day. To make the day a little more special we are baking together and taking the cake to share with my mom. We are making a Fresh Strawberry Cake and yes, I will share the recipe link from the blog below.

Standing here with our aprons on making a cake together feels so sweet. I often recognize that these are the precious moments of my life. All these days of living together and caring for a child have been the best days I have lived. To be a mother is an honor and privilege that I cherish.

And now to create a little beauty in the house.

You might have noticed I love hanging all sorts of flowers in our home. Whenever I have a spent bouquet I will hang them for drying just to extend our enjoyment of them and to help create that old-world touch I enjoy so much in our house. But first I need to dry these out since they have been sitting in vases of water.

So I am going to lay them on a cookie sheet and place them outside for a while to dry off in the sun.

It is that time of year when we get to eat from the garden and so lately we have been having lots of fresh kale salads and carrots. You might have seen our first carrot harvest a few weeks back on a video. Our tomatoes are almost ready but not quite and so are the summer squash.

Right now the garden seems to change daily with all sorts of new growth even just overnight.

I am going to be making a kale salad for lunch. Kale is more nutritious when you eat it raw and I love making salads with it because they keep well in the fridge for a couple of days without going soggy like a lettuce will.

I decided to have lunch outside today. The weather here has been perfect lately so I want to enjoy that as much as I can before the summer heat gets here.

We like to be a little fancy at our house and dress the table up a little for meals and even put some music on. If you like outdoor music you should try Django Rhinehart station. It creates a really nice ambiance outdoors.

Our flowers are dry enough to hang. I am going to make bundles and cut the stems so that they are even. Then tie them up with some jute twine and hang them over our kitchen window.
