Evening Home

I was able to get the house entirely picked up and vacuumed the other evening.  All at one time, thanks to the laundry basket that the little man sat in while he and sister watched for Daddy to come home.  It lasted about five minutes, but in the mean time I took a couple of pictures because it made me happy.  My home is the best place to be when it's tidy.

I've been drying herbs from my garden for winter again.  Sage, thyme, rosemary, tarragon and basil.

   The kids have some new rubbermaid drawers to organize their toys into.  Very happy.  
I envision a tall bookshelf on the back wall of that nook.

You can see the laundry in baskets: dry and folded in the living room and wet in the kitchen.  I had a lovely sort of laundry service this week since our dryer wasn't working: I would send it wet to Caleb's mama or mine, and it would come back dried, folded and sorted.  My dryer is in working order now--must do laundry myself again!
