There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

The Simple Womans Daybook 3 September 2012

Outside my window...the sun is shining and a light breeze is blowing.  It is shaping up to be another beautiful day here on the farm.  The men have a long list of things to do because it is Labor Day don't you know and that means it is a good time to labor. 
I am thinking...about all the blessings that have been heaped on this family.  The greatest blessing is the gift of work.  I often watch my husband an sons working and am so blessed by the fact that they work without complaint.  Rather they do their chores in companionship and with an attitude of love and service.
I am thankful for...the man that I married and the gift of love that he gives to me everyday.
From the kitchen...I am sure that there will be something not only nourishing but delicious coming forth at the appointed time.  Personally I haven't a clue what is going to be cooked today.
I am wearing...shorts and a sleep shirt.
I am creating...an atmosphere of love and acceptance.  I want all who come here to feel that they can relax and be themselves while they are here on the farm.
I am going...to stay home all day!  I really cannot think of any reason to go anywhere today.
I am reading....nothing at the moment.
I am hoping...that Matthew's transition from in processing to basic training is smooth and uneventful.
I am hearing...Layn in the kitchen asking for a drink, MK talking with him, and Melissa in the laundry room starting today's first load of laundry.
Around the house...it is beginning to look like a long weekend is in progress. 
One of my favorite things...listening to Ian tell Layn stories while Layn is sitting on the potty.
A few plans for the rest of the week...school! There are tomatoes to can, lots of laundry to do, the house needs some serious cleaning, and this week commences the yearly activities at church.
Here is a picture thought that I am sharing with you...
Savannah has been here quite a lot lately.  I love to watch her sit quietly on the floor and play with her toys. 

Layn, on the other hand doesn't not sit quietly anywhere.  His middle name is go, go, go!
