and I plan on being home all day in old clothes
a lot of chores inside
and want to tackle big pile of ironing on the loft.
Ironing board has been move by big window
will be a delight to look at the country view.
Well did not turn out this way
at 9:00 phone rings and someone special
tells me she is pulling in my drive.
Now I like this
but this morning still in pajamas, a lot of clutter
and like home neater for one who has never made a visit before to this cottage by the woods.
Oh, if it was summer and all the flowers blooming would look lovely
but there are leaves everywhere, bare trees and landscape looks kind of barren.
She comes in the door, arms full, a pumpkin cake for me and homemade candy
she hugs me and goes on and on about special things in this home.
Love this young woman, she did Jamie's hair for her wedding and I now go every few weeks
for her to make my trimming look good, as I am continually chopping on my hair and she does
So, Cindy, thank you special girl, here it is your day off and you arrive looking so happy
and made my day....
Then another visitor pulls in right behind her with a wonderful Carrot cake, the best I have ever tasted that I ordered for Christmas, seems a lot of sweets in this home. Everyone watching their diet
but mama as she never gains weight :)
At the moment still in pajamas, no breakfast but tea and a piece of her cake and at 1:00
my vegetable soup, cheese and crackers, another piece of cake and do not know when I ever did this and feels so good.
No ironing was done, just sitting out a few more decorations, straightening drawers just doing odds and ends and thinking of my simple menu
for Christmas lunch, making grocery list and just a good day....
small table I am eating at - while I prepare big table for Christmas.
Life is Good
