All in a Day, Afternoon and Evening

Around the house. Around town. And the next town over.

Conductor pulling a passenger

Traveling around the house~ Like the hats guys.

Around town this evening
Drove over to a nearby town, about 30 minutes away, to celebrate a friend's birthday. Shirley thinking about her wish.

My arm thrown over the side of my man in the dark early morning hours.

My man's arm around me as we rotate spooning all night long. 

Seeing deer in the back yard even though I know they eat from our garden and flowers.

Sweet little voices of children. Especially the grandchildren. Makes my heart smile real big.

Music.... Music....Music... Yes. I really, really like music.  Like such a variety that moves my soul. Today I listened to country LOUD in the car as I drove around town. Thought about my man with every song.  Tonight's music...  thoughtful Teitur, Ray LaMontagne , Joe Purdy, Iron and Wine, Amos Lee, David Gray.

Rainy nights with the windows opened just enough to hear the rain fall.

First taste of the day. Deep dark french roasted fair trade coffee. Taste and smells so satisfying. No matter what the weather or temperature out side.

Wood heat. Nothing like backing up to a wood stove.

Hanging out clothes on the line. Even indoors strung across the basement in the winter.

 My soul is full of aaahhs. My mind and heart are rolling with fullness of soul and spirit.

I will add snippets in later post as they come. aaahhh. yes.

Idea Window Shopping

Like the wood combination of the walls, ceiling and floor in this picture

I like the light over the table and the mixture of light and dark wood. Looking back I realize how much these two pictures are alike.  I was looking for light ideas online here and ceiling ideas in the first picture.

Still looking around. Found the next two canning jar lights. Different types, sizes and colors of jars would be interesting too.
