You know those moments when you are just overcome by the feeling of loving home?
I had one.Well, I have a lot of them, but this one is more than share worthy.
It drizzled on and off all day yesterday, and the beds were so soggy, there was no playing.
I toyed around with the idea of mulching, but realized that wet mulch is heavy mulch.
It's an inside day.
So I'm listening to this:
And I'm ironing my kitchen linens :
And I'm smelling this in the crockpot:
There's such a feeling of peace in the house, and a cool breeze coming in the back screen door - I look out and see about 10 Canadian geese waltzing through the yard, and I swear they were walking to the beat of the music.
It was just really fabulous, and made me so happy to be home.
I hope you find your domestic bliss today!
Aren't they the best moments ever . . . feeling HOME is the best place to be . . . Canadian Geese in the front yard too . . . wow . . .ReplyDelete
I LOVE moments/days like that! On those days I feel as though I could explode I have so much peacefulness inside!ReplyDelete
Home truly is where the heart is :) xReplyDelete
I love days like that. To be honest, though, I would never spend it ironing. :-)ReplyDelete
So get what your saying! Yep...puts butterflies in my stomach!ReplyDelete
I have many moments like that living here in the country. Some days I could just pinch myself with the pups and the twittering of the birds that surround our home and the warmth of the sun... somedays, seriously... it almost wants to make me cry because it is so perfect. I think I am getting old... but I so totally know what you are saying..ReplyDelete
Oh I love rainy days when I can concentrate on the inside instead of being torn between working outside and domestic bliss! :)ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed your inside "home" day! I love those kinds of days!ReplyDelete
Those are the days to enjoy the calmness and the geese were a blessing. Hugs.ReplyDelete
A rainy day here yesterday also....nothing to complain about.ReplyDelete
It was nice to just kind of go with the flow of the day and sit back and listen...
Sounds like a perfect day, Jayme. I love days like that- xo DianaReplyDelete
You lost me at "ironing the kitchen linens."ReplyDelete
K, wait. You ironed your kitchen linens? Oh girl.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the music link and the description of your domestic bliss. Life really can be simple and lovely!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh! Your cracking me up. Listening to Alessandro? Who would have thought it? I like to listen to Andrea Bocelli. Hubs got me his CD and DVD a couple of years ago through WTTW, from a special they aired. Love the song Besame Mucho. Your beef looks wonderful. I was just thinking of a hearty meal tonight as well. Now on that ironing of the dish towels, oh my. You need an ironing intervention. I admit I use to even iron my pillowcases, sheets, etc, when the kids were little. My "Martha" days past. Sun is breaking here, maybe in Indiana too. Now put that iron away and come to your senses!ReplyDelete
Green acres is the place for me..ReplyDelete
Farm livin' is the life for me..
Land spreadin' out so far and wide....
Keep that city life, just give me that countryside..
I will share what I didn't know either: it's actually "Canada" geese.ReplyDelete
I love home best too. WhenReplyDelete
I go away, I can hardly wait to get back home.
Glad to hear you had such a good day.
You IRON your KITCHEN LINENS? I guess my dish towels are sorely neglected. I shant let them in on this little nugget of information.ReplyDelete
I love home too, I love MAKING home - home - . And those little breezes... especially the night air coming in the bedroom window on a balmy summer night, washes a calm right over you, doesn't it?
1. I just read a bunch of posts. I was so behind. I am now a subscriber. Why hadn't I signed up before!!??!!ReplyDelete
I have never in my life ironed kitchen linens. Never ever. I actually love wrinkled white cloth napkins. I had a friend pitch a ton that were worn and tattered. I adore them and use them every meal. Well, I did before the ding dang fire. But I will again soon. And you are coming and I will make coffee and hot lemon water and we will use them. I vow and declare it. I miss thee buddy of mine. Desperately miss thee.
P.S. Tell boy child I am still using the C packs. How many did I get?? haha
I don't know why I felt the need to number the first sentence but there you go in case you are wondering the order of the sentences.ReplyDelete
Thanks for introducing me to Alessandro and for a description of a lovely day (minus the ironing!) Sometimes I forget how much there is to enjoy in simple days at home; they are too few and too far between.ReplyDelete
omgsoh...I will never let you in my house! You are way too perfect lady!!! smileReplyDelete
Our geese have rhythm! I'm glad you're enjoying them!ReplyDelete
I love that you put into words how a simple moment at home can turn into a very special time. I too find comfort in every day domestics. Your linens are beautiful. How was the beef? Still soggy out your way? Have you seen the coops in the current issue of Country Living. They made me think of you! LisaReplyDelete
Jayme, I know the feeling. We spent most of Memorial Day working on cleaning out our barn which is actually used as my hubby's workshop and storage shed. I was finally able to get outside and clean up some around the yard. I was just looking around and enjoying myself so much even tho I was hot, dirty, and sweaty. But I was rewarded for my effort because I saw something I had never seen before! I looked up and saw a Luna Moth flying around the yard. Simply beautiful!ReplyDelete
I love days like that. I have all the windows open this morning and the birds singing just make me giddy!ReplyDelete
