Around here Monday's are chore days. After the weekend there is usually a good list of things to do. Especially, since I was raised by a Southern Daddy who taught us to honor the Sabbath.
When I was growing up, not many chores were done on Sundays. Oh, the beds were made and since we had to eat Mama cooked and of course, the dishes were washed and the kitchen cleaned up. But that was it! Sunday, was a day of rest and major chores had to wait until Monday. Even after all these years, I still feel the need to honor Daddy's teaching's. After time spent in Church on Sunday mornings, I come home and rest.
So, today was happily spent stripping the bed, laundrocizing, vacuuming and just giving our home a little extra tender loving care. Have I told you how much I love home? It is my favorite place. How does the simple act of adding a new, cute, handmade throw pillow to the Recliner(ordered on Etsy) make my day!?
I guess it doesn't take much to make this ol' gal happy.
And when I get right down to it...it is the simple things in life that make me happy! My choices, make me who I am and I choose, not to try and impress others with worldly goods. After all, they are but wood, hay and stubble. What I do choose, is to leave lasting impressions like kindness, mercy, forgiveness and love. For without love...we have nothing and can be nothing but lost and wandering, in a world without God. Seeking to fill that God void in us, which is simply...Love.
So, my day is done, my chores complete. Tomer has gone to bed and I sit here in the quiet, alone. Thankful, for Monday's and a Daddy that taught me more than he could ever know. Yes, I am happy...for I choose love and I am loved! What more could a girl ask for?

Greenwald Herkimer House in Historic Heritage Park, Taylor Michigan.
Here it is Saturday...where did the week go!? Actually, what happened to February???
It is almost behind us and Winter will soon be gone. Well, if you can call this Winter!? We, have had hardly any snow, lots of rain and mild temps for the most part...Snaters have nothing to complain about.
Hmmm...Where am I going with this? Don't have a clue!
I just felt the need to write, but don't have the need to say anything important. So, I will ramble a bit if you don't mind? Well, even if you do...here goes. Lol.
This month we have celebrated 4 Birthdays, I have had Dr. and Dentist Appointments, Bone Density Scans Oh, and a Mammogram! Thank the Lord all is well. I am healthy and whole and thankfully will get to keep my teeth all my live long days! Hallelujah!
I have spent time cleaning and can I just say that "I despise cleaning Window Blinds!" How tedious and not fun! But they had to be done, since the morning sun lit up the dusty ol' things and I couldn't bear looking at them any longer!
I know...Yada, Yada, Yada, what trivial news. But it's all I've got...except for Jesus is good and Jesus is faithul. And Oh, how I love Jesus!
Well, I need to get off here. My Tomer has informed me that I am leaving the house today. So, I'd best get dressed because when Tomer is ready...he doesn't like to be kept waiting. I love you all!

My Tomer and I are heading out for a little overnight adventure in the city of Coldwater, Michigan. "The only place that you can take hot bath in Coldwater"...I know, it's silly, but our Grandbabies love it when Papa tells them this when passing through on one of their many Hunting Expeditions.
These buildings are still found downtown and we love this area. It is a lovely town but a lot larger now...Hey, that's progress. We love Road Trips!
Catch y'all later!

This is where I visit with all of you in my little corner of the Playroom.
I don't claim to be a Scholar, but I do know a thing or two...maybe, even three.
Yes, thank the Lord at almost 60 years old I am still learning! And what I am learning is, that my complaining doesn't change things a lick. In fact, I find it makes me feel worse!
When feeling depressed...Woe is me, will definitely not be uttered. And when my body aches...Hey, some have it worse, LOTS worse.
I have reckoned the cost. And the sum of my complaints are nothing in the eye of Eternity. Jesus paid the price...his suffering covers all.
So, with my hands lifted up and my mouth filled with praise and a heart of thanksgiving...I Bless Thee O Lord!
No complaints here...
