Woke up this morning a little after 4:00 to a thunderstorm, and a weird dream and this song running through my head. Makes me grateful for all my blessings, and pray for so many others.

Busy day today (they all are lately). Need to work, put up peaches, clean, pack, etc., etc., etc. Going to see my grandparents & family soon. Excited about that!

Been tagged by Sarah, but I'll wait to share that for a few days.

Have a great day!

Yesterday marked our ninth wedding anniversary. Nine years.... Nine. How can this be? In some ways it seems like we've always been married, and yet somehow, it seems like it's only been a year or two...

I must say would definitely do it all again, given the chance!

It was a really fun day. When I first woke up, it was to see this:

Then, for lunch, we had a toasted Asiago Foccacia sandwich with grilled vegetables, chicken, cheese, and sun-dried tomato sauce. Yum! I also indulged and picked up some IBC root beer and Jones soda to go with it. ;-) We had planned on a picnic, but in the interest of time just had a nice quiet lunch at home.

For dinner we went to the local Mexican restaurant, then to the ice cream shop for dessert. When we got home, we watched our "behind the scenes" wedding video for the first time (long story), and had presents. A pretty-much-perfect day!

Loving Laundry in the Summer

Sounds strange, right? But there's something so purposeful and relaxing in hanging clothes out on the line. It's quiet, and gives you a chance to daydream and reflect a bit. No rush. No multi-tasking. No feeling guilty about it either. Plus it's eco-friendly.

Yep- I will definitely be a little sad when the cold weather comes- not that it doesn't bring pleasures of it's own...

Happy Saturday!

It's such a lovely Saturday morning- so full of potential and promise!

Painting, cleaning, and laundry are on the agenda, and I must say I'm actually excited about it. There's something about rolling up your sleeves, cranking up the tunes, and really digging in to a project that just makes you feel good at the end of the day...

Then we are attending a wedding this evening, which will be so special and absolutely beautiful.

What a perfect Saturday! (Other than laying on a beach doing nothing, of course) ;-)
