Home Sweet Home.....no wondor there is so much sentiment about home. Its where we come to rest and revive our bodies and souls. Where we can shut the world out and pad about in cozy socks and old sweaters. Home is where we can put the teakettle on whenever we like and eat or not eat at any hour of the day or night. Home is cozy lighting. My father used to say that a room lit with just an overhead bulb seemed like a waiting room to him. So....several small lamps lighting the rooms make it cozy and inviting to me. I like the mornings because the sun is out mostly and we arise with energy and feeling good. And, its a gift from our creator, Almighty God, to have a new day to live in. The evening .....the golden evenings, when just sitting at the computer or reading invokes relaxation and a casting off of the day's stresses and duties. All this to say, I'm glad to be home tonight and hope for those who are displaced because of Katrina that they will have a home again as soon as possible. Did you ever notice how things look so much better in the morning when you aren't tired or grouchy? The blue book pictured here is titled..."Old Rose & Silver" by Myrtle Reed. A vintage story, rich with description. I love reading your blogs....its like reaching out and touching base over the tea cups.
