This weekend we had so much to look forward to. Harleigh's Homecoming game and dance. A manageable amount of chores for Mamma G. All in all, a relaxing weekend with much accomplished and downtime around the fireplace, walking the dog, and stealing an hour or two here or there to watch TV, read a book, and catch up on gabbing.
For Homecoming this year, we decided an early birthday present was in order. We had Synett, a local hairstylist and makeup artist, come to the house and do Harleigh's hair and makeup for the dance. What a wonderful experience. We will most definitely use her for prom.
"Our house was not unsentient matter — it had a heart and a soul, and eyes to see with; and approvals and solicitudes and deep sympathies; it was of us, and we were in its confidence and lived in its grace and in the peace of its benedictions. We never came home from an absence that its face did not light up and speak out in eloquent welcome — and we could not enter it unmoved."- Samuel Clemens
I am probably the most content person you'd ever want to meet. I have a decent job working with people I like, a loving family including a swell Old English Sheepdog, a home where nesting and curling up on slipcovered sofas is required, and a life rich in creative crafting and daydreaming. I someday want a cottage at the beach where my grandchildren can bring sandy feet into the house, wet bathing suits can dry on the front porch and everything we need to get to is a bicycle ride away.
