Oh Happy Days

Oh Happy Days .... the holiday weekend has passed us and it's back to everyday living... although I allowed myself to become behind with my chores... Have been out of doors most of the morning as I clean the outdoor spaces... laundry and placing objects that are out of place back into their proper homes... Just washed the china and changed the water in my little china water feature... Guess you get the idea what is going on today... in my neck of the woods... I won't be on the net too long today as I have many chores awaiting me... The temp's are to rise into the 90's the next couple days... Today as I sort and straighten.. I have no other choice but to mix all things together and try to create the feel of comfy and togetherness. Last evening we visited our friends, which have just moved into a condo the past couple weeks and have purchased almost everything brand new to furnish it.. Very... very ... lovely... As I arrived home and today I am looking about and realizing how spend everything in my home looks in comparison... I have no choice but to pick it up... dust it off and place it back.... The countryside is very, very, dry right now and not having central air I must have the windows open and the dust and dirt level is high as the roads and fields are in use... Just seems I have too many extra chores and no help..... Tom is off golfing out of town and will arrive home probably about one... want to eat and then return to a different golf course for a league night till dusk... If you wonder..." No "... he's not rich and "No" he's not famous...
As I type the large work horses have made their ways to the fields to harvest the amber waves of grain and get them off to market.... Sounds of wagons bouncing up and down the fields and roads can be heard as the farmer pray for rain... Hope you all had a lovely holiday and can return to a lovely week....

Sounds like you've been nice and busy these days Marietta! Love that picture, by the way. In my imagination I can see myself lying underneath a tree near the water, listening to the birds, poems being read to and yes, in a similar dress please, oh day dreaming can be so much fun don't you think? Hope everything is ok over there?? Take care, all the best, Ira
