Hello! Do you enjoy the simple things at home?
This week it snowed for the first time and even after three days, we still have some out there! Just another sign that winter is going to come to stay soon.
The joy and brightness the fresh snow brings is incredible!
We all watched in awe as the big fluffy flakes descended.
While inside, we enjoy the fresh potted mum I bought for myself at the grocery store.
For just $7 it will enjoyed for a long time.
We are also enjoying crocheting in the warm of our home. My son made the "blanket" above for his stuffed moose. He is learning and is doing very well with his tension. He is 8. He still needs to work on the ends. :) He's so keen it's fun to have him pull up his crochet basket next to me, turn to me; smile, then say lets do this together. Oh my heart bursts!
I have also added some new lace curtains to our place as the window sucks out so much light at night. Now the light is reflected nicely back inside and brightens that corner of the house.
My husband also found this little green lamp in the corner for me at the free store. Now that corner is nice and bright for those who sit there reading during Bible time.
The african violets are also blooming beautifully at the moment and add a nice cheerful burst of colour in the living room....and at my desk below.
It is wonderful how the simple things in our home make it cozy and inviting. The goal is not being too busy to notice and take it all in. The Lord is so good in the details of our homes. It's an honour to help create these environments for our families, we need to remember to enjoy it as well.
Today after canning 25 jars of applesauce with my daughter (who did some of it all by herself) we were tired. I retreated to my room and as I took my crocheting out, here came my children one by one. Seeking company and the coziness of my "new" bed!
My husband just purchased us a new bed that was on sale at the local furniture store. It's a solid foam one, and it is SO comfortable and I have slept so well on it.
But in all things, a home is made with not only the things that we put in it, but it's the "life" the people that gather there in that makes it a home. The Lord presiding over it all.
Thank you for dropping by!
