A Happy Little Summer Note...

I have a lot to talk about- I've been revisiting some old, dear blogs and it reminded me of how much fun blogging was. I know it still can be, but back in the day (you know- 10 years ago or so!) we just shared because we wanted to. Now when I visit new blogs, I find that some of them are really nothing but commercials. I don't begrudge anyone a living, but have some content too, eh? I sound like a cranky old woman and that was not my intent!

I really am in such a sweet spot right now! My new job is much more manageable and, for the first time in a long time, I'm feeling some breathing room to really stretch my wings a bit. It's funny how life can be like that, isn't it? Sometimes I feel like I want to hunker down and keep low during life's storms. After a while though, I feel a breeze at my back and my sails just fill! 

Hard to believe it's been two years already since we bought our sweet little cottage. She just gets cuter and cuter. Pete has become such a serious gardener. He has put so much love and care into our yard. We've had a bumper crop of zucchini this summer, the tomatoes are ripening and as I type this, I am looking into the backyard at my tall, happy mammoth sunflowers!

Inside, I've been a busy bee. My brother Jon and sister-in-law Deb volunteer at their church thrift store. They know my style and last week they alerted me to two armchairs that were in stock. Well... $40 later, we came home with the armchairs and a teal velvet couch! They are really lovely. On the 4th, I checked out the Goodwill half -off sale and scored a beautiful round coffee table, a french armchair with footstool and a little wall cabinet for all of $30! I'm happy as a clam contemplating all the fluffing and fixing in my future. I'll share the progress as I move along. 

I guess that about does it for me for now. Thank you, little blog, for always waiting here patiently for me!
