Sometimes, I put on my coat and boots and take a walk outside at night. I love observing where I live from afar, especially when I know the people/critters I love most are safely tucked inside.
The yellow glow of lamplight looks inviting, doesn't it?
The table is set, and dinner is on the stove. In winter, there are always candles in the window.
During these walks I remind myself that I am blessed in so many ways.
Inside it's warm, and there are loved ones waiting.
At least one of them is sneaking a snack before dinner.
That's middle daughter's "busted" face.
There's water boiling for pasta. And spaghetti sauce simmering.
The table is set. Chocolate milk is poured.
There's dessert for later.
The house is mostly clean, and I've rearranged a few things (as always!). I moved this lamp from the piano to the table.
The Pottery Barn piece has been refilled with shells, the lemons relocated.
The last of the paper whites…
We work so hard on our homes. Sometimes, it's nice to take a walk around and soak it all in.
Hope you'll all come back again and again!
