It’s nice to be able to sit on the part of the deck that is finished. While the dogs sniff around the yard.
Charlie Ross is sniffing around the pond rocks. Convinced, I’m sure, that there’s a lizard in there hiding from him.
Little daily pleasures are all around us. It’s the little things, really, that bring me profound joy. It’s walking (in this case hobbling. Sprained ankle=old lady cane) in the kitchen and seeing things I’ve gathered from yard sales sitting there to greet me. Wondering what their story is.
Who owned this set of ceramic canisters depicted as vegetables? Some of the vegetable ends are chipped off, which somehow just endears them to me all the more. Who owned this old sewing machine table? I’m sure once it was someone’s grandmother’s treadle sewing machine.
I wonder why someone gave up this plate cabinet I picked up at an antique mall? That now holds these espresso cups I bought at Ross.
This is an animal house. So if there’s someplace soft, there will be a dog or cat on it.
Just above the couch are the two plates I bought at the consignment shop down the road. I purchased the two plate hangers ($10 for the set) at the same shop.
I picked this wooden tray up at a garage sale. And the two blue and white jars at another one last weekend. I think I might decoupage at least the bottom of this tray. Thinking about it. Any thoughts or suggestions?
The bulletin board over my computer…
I like the way the blue wall in my garden room transitions to yellow in the kitchen. I’m glad we had it painted these colors recently.
Upon close inspection, I see that I’ve failed to change my calendar here from May to June. Need to do that.
I suppose I’ll spend a quiet weekend at home. The bank construction across the street is generally shut down on those two days. Maybe I’ll sit out on the partially-built deck some and listen to the birds and the water trickling in the pond.
What plans have you got on the agenda?
