Life Is Good

Hey, farmhouse friends!

"Life is amazingly good when it's simple and amazingly simple when it's good."
~Terri Guillemets

I just posted over at my other blog, Old Time Pickers.
I've decided to close it in order to keep my life sweet and simple.
It will be more manageable for me to have just one blog. 
I'm working on changing the business some. Change for the good.
No worry. Pickin' old time stuff will always be a part of us and I'll include our pickin' adventures here.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
Farmhouse hugs!

Can You Hear It?

Listen. Do you know what I hear?
Quiet. I hear quiet.
Well, what I really hear is an early morning country quiet...
the birds are singing,
a few bugs are buzzing by,
and the geese are honking on the lake.
No cars.
No people.
No cell phones.
No chaos.
This is my type of morning.
I'm really happy to have my routine of walking the dogs twice a day.
We were out before 8:00 this morning as it is going to get pretty warm today.
Nothing is more inspiring than to take the time to appreciate one's surroundings.
Connect to nature.
And leave the modern world...behind.
My wish for you today...
is to hear the quiet.

Laundry Day

Today was laundry day.
I don't mind doing the laundry. Not at all.
I have an old machine that works just fine.
I don't need anything fancy, just something that gets the job done.

I also have an old dryer. But when the warm weather arrives, I enjoy hanging the laundry outside on the line.
My clothesline is not fancy either as I just have a rope strung between two trees. 


Hanging the laundry up gives me another excuse to be outdoors.
Once done, I can meander over to look at my flowers. Again.




And did I mention that I also have a helper?
Wherever I am, there she is. Helping!?!


So that is my laundry day...sweet and simple.
Just the way I like it.

Journey of Simplicity


As I was taking the dogs for their morning walk, it dawned on me how fortunate and thankful I am. 
My journey of simplicity...is no longer predetermined and it no longer holds the question of how I should approach my life. It just is. It comes naturally with a rhythm and a routine that puts a smile on my face.


On our walk as I rounded the corner to head toward the pasture, the fresh breeze played with my hair and brushed across my skin. Without the chaos of the modern day world competing for my attention, I totally embrace that breeze and can feel a full appreciation for it.
 

There are many paths one can take and my journey of simplicity is not for everyone. I understand that. But you know what? My path is filled with an abundance of blessings. That makes it a good choice as it fills me with peace and purpose.


So today, my wish for you is simplicity. 
A sweet and simple day...weekend...life. Whichever you seek.
And have a Happy Mother's Day, too!
