Enjoy!!

Oh burrrrrr!!!! We are having single digit weather today only to drop further for the next several days in our area... Snow blanketed the fields and lawns along with bright sunshine making it almost blinding to the eyes.... Our well drilling and installation completed and I am doing a load of laundry and it sounds as though Niagara Falls is flowing into my washer. I am not use to that kind of water pressure ... Whoppeee.. They have placed chlorine in the system for cleaning and last night I thought I smelled like I had just came from a swimming pool when I washed my hair to attend the Tinora guys basketball game.. That will ease up however... Well that completed faze two of burying the money.. Last year was the field tile... now the well and this summer the new in ground pool... now that's really burying it!!!!!! While many of our friends are leaving or have already left for Florida Tom and I are attending girls and guys basketball and enjoying little offerings in life... Many evening we just enjoy sitting down to a lovely home-made meal and spending time talking.. Later sitting in a soft lite room, cuddled up in a throw and viewing TV of our choice and a bag of popcorn later... Sound simple? Maybe so... but to me that is the good life... Viewing lovely blogs and magazines with wonderful collections of vintage plates and china, lovely linens and textures all surrounding me just adds to the good life.. Learning to enjoy all the precious little things of beauty... Although I haven't made it to a antique shop I soon want to.... I did, however, purchase a jewelry lot from Ebay to create some altered art with as my stash is getting lower.. I could also enhance my stash of lace and lines ect. with a visit to a shop..
Sunday, I am having a very small birthday gathering Sunday of just my family for my 3 year old granddaughter.. This sweet little child is the light of my life... The plan is for a very large pan of home-made burritos and all the trimmings and ice cream and cake.. Simple but it is the gathering and sharing that is the important part... It is the small moments in life that offers beauty and indulgence.. I think so many miss this as they are out there searching for things with no practical reason... Stop.... Enjoy and swoon over the wonderful little offering's and privileges we can have.. The wisdom of aging and learning never regrets doing it... Enjoy life.....

The image with your post is so sweet. I can't imagine single digit temps. We just spent most of the day at the ballfield. First game of the season, which we lost. Oh well! Have a great weekend and stay warm and cozy! Best wishes, Tammy

Sounds like you certainly are burying your money! lol Glad your well is working for you now. My daughter-in-law says that our water pressure is so hard that it beats the skin off her back! Really it doesn't , but they aren't used to that kind of pressure either. Love it!!
Stay warm and cozy and enjoy the simple things...as I do!
Hugs~
