Well hello! Happy Friday!
It’s been a while since we’ve had a “normal" Friday here at stone cottage. The kind of Friday where “home" is the only thing on the schedule, and everything else is just a big happy bonus.
The sky is cloudy today and getting darker. Cool, gentle raindrops sprinkle the drive and the ground. It's a good morning to sit for a while on the porch over breakfast. A kitty visits me and asks for a bit of egg, and I happily oblige. I bask in the silence here, and the sweet solitude that I love, offers me a kind of comfort similar to a visit with a very best friend. Flowers are cut for a jar, I visit the chickens, and enjoy the cool morning air. The chickens are half grown, getting bigger, and I look forward to the day when they can wander free in the yard. The clouds and rain have brightened the flowers, giving each a brilliance of color hard to find outside of nature.
Today is sewing day. I’m making a few new pillows for the family room that I will share tomorrow. As I write to you, the sound of songs I love are playing in the background; songs that Jordan had to help me download :) It’s a beautiful day!
Wishing you a break from the heat this weekend friends. May joy and happiness be all there is to reflect on as you rest in the evening. xo Jeannine
