Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Rainy Saturday

Every Saturday morning Kelly and I amble up the road to Homestead Farms. If it's fairly decent weather we walk. If its pouring we drive. Homestead is a local farm-style golf club and resort about 1/2 mile from our house. They have scrumptious home-made berry scones and carrot muffins. Kelly always has a 16 ounce Tully's coffee. I sip on Chamomile tea. We sit by the fire and discuss our plans for the weekend. Sometimes we buy the Saturday Herald. He reads the sports-I check out the ads. I hope we continue this ritual well into our old age. So 20 years from now, if you happen to be visiting Homestead on a Saturday morning, look for us. We'll be the old couple, sitting by the fire.

What a great tradition. May you enjoy many years of Saturday mornings at Homestead Farms.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. It's all new to me -- but so far so good!
