Yesterday was a most wonderful day!
It was filled with homey chores and visits to a thrift store, Hobby Lobby, and the grocery store in the morning.
Afternoon and evening brought family time and a fun time swapping recipes and cooking with my youngest son's girlfriend. (I so love girl time and girl talk! I have to make a special effort to include that into my life since I live in a guy-majority home.)
Sweet Karrie came over and we made my chicken and dressing recipe together.
Then she taught me how to make her Daddy's fan-tab-U-lus fudge. I think it's the best fudge I've ever tasted!!!
~Now on to Today~
This new day has started out very foggy.
The fog has deposited its heavy drops on my clothesline.
The smell of our woodsmoke contributes a warm, homey smell to the outdoors though.
I think I'll go inside where the washer is swishing our sheets...
...sweet love songs are drifting through from the kitchen cd player, and a cheery fire is burning brightly in the fireplace.
All making home a very comforting, happy place to be.
Looking around inside lifts that heavy fog that tried to settle in around me outside.
There's a mixture of Christmas past and Valentine future in my little breakfast room.
I seem to have chosen an everlasting Poinsettia waaaaay back in early December.
Who would have thought a mere $3.99 could bring MONTHS! of colorful happiness to my life?
Thank you Aldi for your offerings of beautiful flowers at such a little price.
And my just-as-frugal Dollar Tree Valentine decor is just as cheery and will last even longer!
Such sweet, simple pleasures make me such
A Happy Valentine!
The sun is now out and has gotten rid of the heavy fog so I'm going out to flip the fog droplets from my clotheslines and hang out my freshly washed sheets!
I wish you a joyful day, my friend!
