The Beginning and Ending of My Day
Tim's cellphone rang early this morning, about an hour before his alarm usually goes off. Our son Nate, on his way home from work and dropping a co-worker off at home, had a problem with his truck. Don't ask me, I basically know what it was but am not going to try to explain and embarrass myself! I tagged along since I had planned to take Tim to work this morning anyway and we knew that we would be going straight there after helping Nate get home. In the photo Tim is hooking the tow line onto Nate's truck.
After a beautiful day yesterday, it was frosty overnight and the morning was chilly...
The sun is rising over the valley. I could tell that today was going to be a lovely day, too.
After we towed Nate home, I dropped Tim at work and came home. I got the kids started on their schoolwork and when they were done, they left with Lindsay to spend the afternoon with friends.
Emily and I watched Kamryn while Kay was at work and while Emily did some clean up from yesterday, I worked on store business. I had quite a list and am so delighted that I got the majority of it done.
Emily took Kamryn to get Kay from work, they ran some errands and then picked up Tim. They had a delay from locking the keys in the van, but Lindsay was able to rescue them! They are now at my parents house fixing the truck and having dinner. Lindsay brought me some dinner and she and I are going to watch a movie. A nice way to end the day.
Irish Breakfast tea - we drink it all day long - hot or cold!
As dusk came on I started to light some candles. Do you light candles even when it is just for you? I do.
We deep cleaned the kitchen and living room on Saturday and rearranged the living room space. I like it very much. Cozy, comfortable. We had 19 people come over for lunch after church and with our 7, and Kay and Kamryn we were quite a crew! With the nice day the kids played outside, the kids were able to ride horses and have pony rides. The women visited in the living room for a while and the men were at the dining table. Drinking coffee, discussing spiritual things.
After picking up from yesterday and clearing my store paper work, the concordance is all that is left on the table...
In the lantern I am burning a delightful candle called "Irish Moss" made by my friend Becky. That is her Etsy store link on my sidebar. You would not be sorry to have this candle! The perfect green for spring and a soft delightful scent as well! If you her candles are soy and she uses hemp wicks.
I moved the bookcase from the end of the hallway back into the living room, near the front door. It has left the hallway barren, but I kind of like the open space and it was the perfect spot for little visiting girlies to play dollhouse yesterday!
The sky as dusk was settling in...
Then my friends, the Moon, Jupiter and Venus came out to play...
How was your day?
