Around the House Today

There are lots of things around the house today to make me smile.  The happy sign above that hangs in the doorway to the office/utility room.

The herbs on the kitchen windowsill, lush vibrant green and just asking to be added to all sorts of food.

A beautiful posy of flowers on the kitchen table bought for me by my Lovely Hubby.

Progress with the sorting out for the final car boot sale of the season at our favourite venue at the very beginning of September.  We are having the Bank Holiday weekend off from car boots as we are having a good sort out and tidy up here instead.

The barometer moved to 'Fair' when I tapped it this morning, this always makes me happy.

The sound of the chickens going about their business is drifting over the farm, the washing is blowing in the sunshine, bringing the promise of crisp, clean fresh sheets on the bed tonight and the good nights sleep they always seem to help with.   The showers of earlier have all dried up and the dogs are out,  busy chasing flies, the cats are curled up in their little beds snoozing the day away, ready for another summer night on the prowl.

The chores are all done and I have a cup of coffee and an hour to myself to nip around Blog world and catch up with all my lovely friends.  Sometimes it's the little things that make your day special.

 I hope your day is turning out as special as mine.

  1. I love to watch the washing blowing on the line, knowing there'll be fresh bedding that evening too.
    Your sign is so pretty. I have lots of little signs about the home too. Simple things really do lead to contentment don't they?
    Enjoy! :)

  2. Such a lovely post! That little sign is a treasure too.

  3. Your post reminded me of "Anne of Green Gables". In between all the scrapes Anne got into, she always took pleasure in everyday things. Being a homebody meself, I totally get where you are coming from. Have a great rest of the day!

  4. The jug/vase that your flowere are in is just so lovely and I really really want a happy sign like yours! Hope the rest of your day has been as lovely - Yvonne xx
