Be Grateful Challenge~ May 30, 2014


Waking to a peaceful neighborhood; sweet teen; me; "I'm waiting for you to bundle me up and carry me inside.." Matt: "I'm waiting for You to bundle Me up and carry Me inside!" LOL (either way it would make a funny video!); scrambled eggs with potatoes, onions and toast with butter; fresh, hot coffee...

Breakfast 'together' as Matt sits on the front patio and I sit in the living room~ both watching for the school bus as we eat and chat merrily; Matt eating his meal and 1/2 of mine...

Garlic mustard crop and the fun of a wholesome harvest...

Laundry hung and drying overnight/ all day tomorrow~ ah, line dried laundry!

Homestead flowers quietly scenting our lot and bidding a gentle good night to all...
the quiet chatter of a sweet teen young man at bed time~ hos thoughts, dreams and plans always amaze me!

Organize/ Eliminate Challenge!


As much as I thought my living room, aka household catch-all, was making me crazy, my closet is what comes to mind as first priority every time I dream of cleaning... Yes, sadly I dream of cleaning, (well , daydream) as I work 48 hours/ week and never seem to have enough time to catch up at home!
So I wandered into my room to fold laundry and found my self setting up outfits in my closet and eliminating items of clothing quickly and painlessly. So far I have six (6) items to drop off at MorningStar Mission. I like to donate there as my usable unwanted items my be needed by those staying at the shelter or sold at their thrift store. Either way it helps keep this valuable community assett going.

Tent becons my sleepy self to crawl in and snooze; load of clean towels in May sunshine...
