Contentment

I haven't been around much this week but it isn't because I don't have lots to share. I do. I've been missing because I had company until Monday and a sick little girl until this morning. But mostly I've been missing because I'm just feeling content. Content to sit and read. To embroider and sew. To watch a movie. To spend time snuggling. To enjoy the peace. To spend time cooking dishes with pasta, and broth and pumpkin and apples. This life of mine isn't perfect, but I'm so happy it's mine.

  1. All the things you've mentioned, are food for my soul. I just finished sewing a new apron. It's a rainy, gloomy afternoon and it seemed like the thing to do.

    I do hope you find time for yourself soon.
