The Corner


 I love my corner. I will do almost anything to get sent there. Including acting out like this:


Don't worry I didn't get in too much trouble. He was being ornery and deserved it. Plus it got his attention and got me sent to the corner. My Momma used to say that we act like 2 puppies playing and nipping at each others heels and then licking each others faces and rolling around.


Speaking of Mommas, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was a bit rough. Those of you who have been around since last summer will understand. My family spoiled me rotten and loved me up good so that helped dry my tears a bit.


Also, I got to spend time in my corner and even got to read the Sunday paper on Sunday. Can you imagine? I can't remember the last time that happened. Then I spent some quality time with this book, what a treat. Also, the Vera Bradley fairy visited me and was very generous. I love that fairy.

,
 Today I didn't like my attitude at all so I had no choice but to send myself to the corner. It took me quite awhile to learn my lesson. I make no promises that my questionable behavior won't continue tomorrow as well. After all, I have a whole stack of books sitting there waiting for me.

  3. Your "corner" is just wonderful! I'm glad you got some peace on Mother's Day. I bet this was a hard weekend. I'm dreading my birthday (dad and I shared a birthday) and Father's Day...

  9. What can I do to get sent to your corner? :)

    I'm glad that your family took good care of you yesterday. Being separated from those we love is never easy, especially on holidays. Take care of yourself.

  11. Dear Jen,
    I will never forget hearing about your mother. It was one of the most devastating things I have ever heard. I am so glad you can rest in the arms of your loving family, Jen. You really need some good taking care of on any of these anniversary days. I found that with my mom (certainly not half as traumatic but very sudden) the pain remained but the time in between gradually got longer and longer. Hoping for healing for you, too,
    Big, big hugs,
    Suz

  13. I always enjoy your posts, but today was unique because I saw you have a cotton tablecloth identical to my own. I inherited mine from a favorite aunt, who passed last year. Do you know anything about where these tablecloths came from? Thanks.

  21. Sending yourself to your corner seems to be called for every day. That's my prescription.

    I know this Mother's Day must have been very hard for you, Jen.

  24. hi jen,

    i am loving the peeks at things in your pics (ie: wire basket!).

    your post is making me think of a song from rogers & hammerstein's cinderella called "in my own little corner." i wonder if it is google-able?

    i had a rough time leading up to mother's day and admit that i skipped reading everyone's posts but then on the actual day, i was busy and had a nice day.

    so, what did that VB fairy bring you anyway?

  26. It's a great corner. I have a corner too. I get up before everyone and have my tea in my chair and watch the sun rise. It's wonderful! Hope you have many wonderful moments in your corner from now on.

  27. Jen, I hope your family was
    able to help ease your heart-
    ache. It honestly does get a
    little easier.

    Sounds like you had a fun time
    in your corner though. I don't
    think I would mind being sent
    to your corner either. :-)

    Can't wait to see more pictures
    of your cottage!

  28. Yes, I do indeed remember. It was tragic and you suffered so. I'm glad to see you in happy surroundings, with your very own special corner. May you have many Sundays where you get to read the Sunday paper through and through.
