We spent the evening playing horseshoes and croquet, then finished up with a 300 piece puzzle which went together really quickly. I love to make time for things that are fun. Because, the housework is never really all done...its peat and repeat of course. I think, as a person ages, she appreciates the little things so much more. Rather like the contentment that Gladys Tabor puts forth in her writings...or Miss Read.
Reading is contentment too...'The house was low and white and rambling with lemon-colored blinds and a green moss roof. There were frills of daffodils all down the garden walks and around the edges of the white picket fence......but the story began away back the summer before..'
Taken from 'April Gold' by Grace Liviingston Hill. An old fashioned story, which I find so easy to slip into and enjoy....and be thankful for. One that points me to the Lord and values that build character. I'm thinking about things I enjoy. Old and new....
