Good morning, friends!
Let's chat, shall we?
Pour a cup of whatever makes you happy and get cozy.
So, what makes you feel...
For me, it is thinking I am all done for the day, and then opening up the dryer to find clothes that must be folded. Not towels and washcloths that can stay in there for days. Nope. Dress shirts and pants that will require ironing if I leave them in until morning.
I feel happy waking up on a day I know I can stay home with my people and have no appointments or commitments. Or visitors.
Oh, I don't know. Maybe buying a prelit Christmas tree knowing full and well some of the lights will go bad but doing it anyway and then having it for two years and putting it up only to find a group of bulbs not lighting and you have no idea where the replacement bulbs are even though the woman ay the store said to put them in a safe place because you may need them someday?
Making homemade pasta and sauce takes me right back to my childhood. I literally feel like I did on those Sunday afternoons, smelling my mom's sauce all day and knowing we would all gather together in my mom's yellow kitchen for dinner.
I feel disappointed when I find a new recipe I want to try and no one else thinks it sounds good because it has one-sixteenth of a cup of pecans or one-eighth cup of tomatoes or uses chicken thighs instead of breasts or a sprinkle of chopped onions. Just to name a few.
My life. My family. My home. My simple, cozy life.
How about you?
Happy Monday, my friends.
Thanks for stopping by.
