Lawn mowers, people laughing, children playing, sounds heard while I got outside and busied myself in the garden.
The birds were singing non stop and I saw a pretty little yellow bird which I believe is a Common Yellowthroat.
The sunshine went a long way to perking up the spirit...
My muscles are sore and I am weary.
It's a good feeling that one earns and owns
knowing it's the reminder of a hard days work.
The light inside the bungalow was simply too bright to ignore.
the cross and olive crystal cake stand
came to life
reflected it's rays on the walls
it's the little things that make our daily round worthwhile
if I get too busy I often forget to pay attention
slowing down does have it's benefits
simple white vessel
a newly found vintage piece
light and shadow
play upon it's sleek finish
Pepper slept most of the day on our bed
a south exposure means it's one of the sunniest rooms in the Bungalow.
It was a busy weekend and the time flew by...
Friday we dined at our favourite Italian restaurant with my sister and her husband and our daughter J
Saturday saw us hosting a BBQ
with our lovely DIL, son and that super special little Miss Isla
grand daughter extraordinaire
Sunday was an at home day of domestics
and gardening for me.
I laundered some winter woolens
the Lands End cashmere sweater really washes well and holds it shape...
the gross grain ribbon on the inside of the buttons and button holes is brilliant
no wavy edges
I used the zippered mesh delicates washing bag in my washer
with cold wash and cold rinse
my sweater is as new.
Mr. HB was working hard "down under"
painting the newly renovated bathroom, hall and laundry room!
Sometime soon I'll post some more images of the reno
just in case you are curious we are using Benjamin Moore's
Are you watching Julian Fellowes Titanic series?
Life above deck ~ below deck...
IMO it's not as good as Downton Abbey but we are watching just the same.
Mad Men is back!
We do not sit glued to the tube 24/7 we PVR and watch when it's convenient.
Thank you all for those positive and encouraging comments about my friend's husband and his recent diagnosis
I've been online doing some research and so has she.
I sent her a floral garden planter and I think it perked up her spirits.
