Good Morning Friends...
Every morning I have the same routine...up by 5:00 a.m., feed my "boys", walk my "boys", then make myself a cup of coffee and plan my day. Sounds pretty boring, doesn't it?
Well...I wouldn't have it any other way right now. I am going to be announcing some pretty big news soon, so for right now, I'll be content to keep things just the way they are!! :)
You know, a VACATION sounds reeeeeeeally nice right about now!!!
It has been so long since we have had a "real" one! I have been hearing about all of the wonderful times you are all having this summer, and I have to admit, even though you all deserve them, I am a little jealous...OK...I am VERY jealous!!! (sniff, sniff) Relaxing trips to the beach, antiquing, coming home with car loads of fun stuff,and of course the wonderful memories!!
Vacations sure can be alot of fun, can't they? Hopefully, in August...once things settle down a little around here, John and I can take one...even if it is only for a long weekend. I have been so consumed with my book, that I haven't even had time to go grocery shopping, yet alone frequent any of the good shops in our area!! But...once you commit to something, you should follow through...no matter what the sacrifice, am I right???
As I was out walking this morning, I looked up at our house from the road.
I could barely see it...the trees are hiding all but one corner of my pretty little saltbox. I love this house, and the grounds...it is so peaceful. Living here is like a dream that I never want to wake up from.
Every time I walk through the door, a feeling of warmth, peace, and contentment comes over me. It is hard to describe...I guess you have to experience it to know what I mean. Do any of you know what I am talking about?
Since I can't share that "feeling" with you, I thought that you might at least like to see the view that
I saw this morning.
I am posting two pictures...one that I took early this spring, when things were just starting to wake-up, as I like to call it, and then a picture of what I saw this morning while I was out walking my boys...What a difference a season makes!!
Here is my house in the early spring...it reminds me of some of the pictures you see of old saltbox homes in New England.
Now...here it is as it looks right now! In early summer, this fenced area is covered with purple lupines and other wild flowers...I wish they would last all through the season, but even without the flowers, it is still very pretty.
OK...time to get my day going...I wish you all a happy Sunday, and a wonderful week ahead!!
My best to you all...Tina
