~To live, love, and journal our days at~

"Just being silly"

Mother said,"there would be"  
days of total bliss~

Days when everything would seem to be so perfect~

Days that I wouldn't be able  to make up my mind about anything~
And there would be  days that I would know exactly what I wanted~

There would also be days that I absolutely didn't want to do a thing~
OH! MY! Mother said  there would be days like this too~
And like this~
There would be many days when I would feel so special~ OH! Yes!

Mother also said that I was never, ever to do this~

Is there anyone besides me who was given such "wonderful", sound advice?
A very wise woman there be, for I have experienced all of the above!(yes, even some eaves dropping here and there, and maybe a smidgen of gossip) Hey!! you know I've been around for awhile. lol
Which day are you having today?
I hope it is a day of total BLISS!

Vee March 28, 2011 at 7:35 AM  

So cute! My mother always gave me the very best advice, too. Not shaping up to be a day of bliss, but who knows how it'll end? Thanks for the fun post.

I loved this post, Sue ... and I'm so glad to hear Will had a safe trip. I pray God will continue to hold him close and keep him safe.

What a wonderful post, Sue! I LOVE the retro pictures along with all of your advice.

Keeping you all in my prayers.

Hope you have a happy Monday :-)

Elena March 28, 2011 at 11:44 AM  

So cute! I love all the pictures. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words:) Yes, I have experienced days like those. I am having a wonderful day so far and had such a blessed Sunday with friends and family! Blessings to you dear Sue. I am so glad your grandson arrived safely.

Ady Xp March 28, 2011 at 12:37 PM

Hi Sue,
I've experienced all the above, too.
What a cute post. Made me smile this morning.
Have a good week!

Smiling over here after reading this fun and cute as a button post. I just love all of your vintage pictures and can also relate to several of them.
So glad to know that Will arrived safe and sound. When I looked at my 22 year old son this weekend, I couldn't help but think of your Will. My prayers will continue for his safety.

Susan March 28, 2011 at 3:48 PM  

Yes, this is a very cute post!
The pictures made me laugh....Today is a busy day, homeschooling my grandaugher. We use Sonlight curriculum and are studying US History "The Revolutionary War" then on to the Civil War and so on. I'm pretty sure I am learning as much if not more than she is so for me I will have to say that...........I am having a perfect day!

Dianna March 28, 2011 at 4:48 PM  

Cute post - love the pictures. And yes, I received lots of advice (all good) from my Mom!

I'm visiting from someone's blog, but I can't remember whose... Happy @ Home, I think.

Love your blog!

Debbie March 28, 2011 at 7:40 PM  

I love this post, Sue! My day isn't like any of them. There isn't a picture of a harried women searching every store for festive pencils that do not exist.

My favorite picture of all is the husband finding the silver. That is so "MY HOUSE".

I'm glad to hear that Will made it safely!

"...Far be it from me to sin against my LORD by failing to pray for him" (can't remember the reference, but Samuel said it, and I though the scripture applied.)

Jenni March 29, 2011 at 12:16 AM  

Rejoicing with you that Will made it safely to his destination.....

and I will def. be calling his name out in prayer... (I already have been, actually)

What a neat post... I Love all those vintage photos and the advice that went with them....

Texas hugs,

Barb March 29, 2011 at 11:57 AM  

Hi Sue!

I loved your post today!! What a fun reminder to all of us that there will certainly be days of bliss and days like "this"! I loved the vintage pictures - straight out of my era!

My day so far has been bliss - I am going to go visit two sweet neighbors this afternoon, nothing like good friends!


Nellie's Cozy place March 29, 2011 at 4:06 PM  

Hi Sue,

So I am really looking forward to it.
This was such a cute post!!
Enjoyed it very much, your Mama

Love and Blessings hon, Nellie

Hi, just love this post! Where would we be without our Mother's wisdom? So glad your Will is safe. Just read your post on him and it made me teary eyed. Our daughter is 21 and joined the Navy 3 years ago.She is stationed in Hawaii and for me, it feels like she is stationed on the moon. I miss her so much! Prayers for you and your son! blessings,Kathleen

Deanna April 3, 2011 at 6:19 PM  

I couldn't help but giggle because all except for the silver fork being thrown out, I have done all the above! I'm good in the burning food department!

Great post!

Deanna :D

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
