A day away from the shop, mid~week, can be quickly filled with items from that endless 'to~do' list. It is fulfilling to check off this list, but it is also good to plan some fun in the mix. I thought I would tidy up my kitchen in the morning while the Speckled Rooster caught up with some yard work, and then maybe we would go downtown for lunch and wander in a few shops...
I guess my work was cut out for me, tiding up turned into matching lids to Tupperware, moping up jam spilled in the fridge... (it had tipped to the side, and run down leaving a little smidge on each shelf and a bright, raspberry red puddle at the bottom)~ out came all the shelves and drawers... I love this quote from Jessamyn West, "House ordering is my prayer, and when I have finished, my prayer is answered." I love my home and it feels good to spend some quality time with her! Amen!
And the best part might be, the instant vase that is handy for a bouquet picked just outside the kitchen door!
Did we get downtown for lunch? Maybe next week:)
