Thank you for coming by today, and welcome to our new friends who are coming by for the first time today!
It is a beautiful, sunny, breezy day here in Missouri, and we are enjoying the fresh air coming in the doors and windows. What a blessing to have days like this, spent at home, pottering around the house.
We finally finished the dress we started before Valentine's Day, and have paired it with a pretty collar that we found for fifty cents at our favorite thrift store. Dressing up is such fun!
We have been rearranging our bookshelves, and appreciating again all the old books that we have been blessed to find. There is something sweet about reading the words of those who have long gone; the language and intention were so different from modern books. If you want to learn about the past, do not read history books; read what people in the past put on paper! It is a fascinating study that can be life-changing as one absorbs the spirit of long-ago.
We put up a tire swing on one of the big silver maples out front, which adds to the happiness of a home in such a simple way. One of our dreams before we moved was to have a big tree in the yard; how thankful we are to have three out front and several out back! And to think they'll have leaves someday! :)
We have put in some pea seeds and mixed greens along the fence and in a raised bed. Hopefully the critters leave us enough to eat!
