This is a mad time of year when folk can get caught up in all sorts of projects. It is so easy to lose perspective and go madly insane with to do lists. We can get so busy that we forget to take the time just to be, and especially just to be with the people we love the most. A couple of weeks ago we showed you our “Grand Entrance.” Up the stairs and to the right…
Since then we have put our old couch at the top of the stairs, up the stairs and to the left, and what a life saver it is!!!
Why didn’t I think of this sooner, like years ago!!!
A touch of morning sun but mostly lovely shade through the broiling heat of summer. A couple of candles:
And story-time has relocated:
The kids are reading stories and I am reading my Kindle… A chapter for me a story for them, a chapter for me and a story for them…interspersed with a couple of naps.
Reading, reading, reading…
I adjourn there after lunch and just being there in the afternoon means everyone nows where to find me… and I get a number of visitors, lots of lovely chats and funny events, lots of lectures, lots of stories but a picture tells a thousand million words..
Just look at this cute guy – no longer oblivious!!!
Now this is the way to spend the summer.
Meanwhile, Big Red Kitchen very kindly nominated us for a Homie Award at Apartment Therapy, madness I know (!!!), but go and look at all the yummy blogs in the Kids at Home Section… and vote for the ones you like the best!!! Really the fun homes you so wished you lived in!!!
Our couch was featured on Apartment Therapy!!! Follow the link to read their post…. Love it!!!
