Play Room


 The babies have a beautiful new playroom.  I rearranged some beds and made our guest room into a place for the lovelies to keep and play with their toys.  They love it so much.  Right off the main room where we have the woodstove and eat; near Mama, but their very own.


Auntie Olivia spent last weekend with us and helped me to paint the walls
a most wonderful color of cantaloupe, warm and soft.

This weekend has been a lovely one as well.  It started off with a lovely Thursday--my dear Olivia's birthday.  We spent the day together, putting together a hobbitish feast for my favorite hobbit.  The family came to my home for the birthday dinner in the evening; a real joy.  I will have to put up some pictures soon.  Such a lovely day of memories to keep.
My dear cousin, Michal, was in town this weekend too, along with her mama and brother and our Grammy.  We had a birthday supper together last night for her birthday.  Such treasures, these days of particular remembrance of the ones we love.  Now she's off to her new home and work many miles away.  I hope we can see each other again soon.  A treasured friend.
And we get another day yet this weekend!  A tomorrow with my man not working at his usual job.  Time for a roadtrip and supper with extended family.  The weather is feeling really Septemberish already.  Already?!  I think I must make some molasses cookies...mmm, I can smell them now.

I love reading the descriptions of your days, routine and special. You seem to be blessed with a wonderful life and the wisdom to see it in the ordinary.

Fairy lights, hobbit celebrations, and molasses cookies scenting the Septemberish air. No wonder this is one of my favorite places to visit. If only I could in person .

Oh, if only it could be in person, Jodi! What fun that would be.

Such a cozy playroom! I'm not surprised your little ones enjoy their time there!

The scrumptiousness knows no bounds ~ and that picture captures it so well. I'll have to visit it again soon!
