The world from this point of view

as I sip my first cup of morning tea…


the lily of the valley that’s blooming like mad all along the wraparound porch


excited for the long weekend

    i recognize that quilt~so happy that you love and use it! your day sounds like it’s starting just right! i hope your entire weekend is as lovely!

    amy and i played a little tennis and then swam this morning. then played jenga, sequence and made a quinoa summer salad. i’ll have to pass along the recipe – really it’s just like tabouleh but using quinoa instead for a grain.

      sounds good to me! my little grand girl loves dill dip. She’s two and she calls it her “dips.” so adorable 😉

    Another glorious weekend and my senses are all over the place! LOL Loving my 3 days, although they went too fast as usual.

    SEEING – the sunshine on my fresh cut lawn
    SMELLING – the lilacs & lavendar blooming outside my windows
    TASTING – shrimp & scallop pesto pasta for dinner
    HEARING – wind the blowing through the trees, which I thoroughly enjoy even if it means storms might be headed in.
    FEELING – surprisingly calm & peaceful about a big decision I made this week.
    KNOWING – that I will always be able to handle anything in my life because I’m way stronger & confident than I ever use to be, and it feels great!
