This Hour, This Day






I'm sitting at the dining room table making a yarn ball out of some yellow tangled yarn.  I'm the only one at home this morning.  I have no music playing, but there are plenty of sights and sounds around me.  I can hear the quiet dull thud of the jars of grape juice in their hot water bath, I see the lovely patterns made by the sun as it shines through the front door and parlour windows, I hear the crackle of the fire burning in the wood stove, and I can see my wellies waiting to be slipped on before hanging out the laundry; even though it's only forty-something degrees outside.

Who needs music when I can hear the many soothing sounds of home?  Not me!

so enjoyed our visit yesterday. It is so relaxing not to have mechanized sounds interrupting the silence. rarely, when I get the silence that roars in my ears... I think.. this is wonderful.

Debbie, it was fun to read this and to see your photos. I love getting a quiet glimpse into the homes and lives of others. Refreshing, peaceful, and pretty!

SO glad you finally got a digital camera!

Is that a crochet project on the dining room table?!

Debbie, these pictures are great. Your place looks so cozy. It has an old fashioned look to it that I love. Soothing sounds are the best!

Cute red pot, and cute wood stove! And I think perhaps that it's still warm enough sometimes to sit out on your porch swing? I like all the details I can glimpse of your home.

This post makes me long to live in the country where I grew up. I love your house. Maybe one day Michael and I will have one of our own!
