The simple things in life:
a good cup of coffee
mornings spent teaching my children
sunlight streaming in the windows
the sound of happy children
dinner at the table
playing Clue with the family
a clean kitchen at the end of the day
a good night's sleep
these are the daily, simple things that make life so grand.
the little things that add up to be the biggest thing of all.....My Life.
i love my full, busy, happy, and simple life.
This is my entry for last week's Lens.Us.Together. theme, Simplicity.
Last week went by in the blink of an eye! I really don't know where time is going anymore. October is basically over and Christmas catalogs are filling the mailbox everyday. Ack! Sometimes I really wish I could slow down those hands of time just a little. I can't seem to find time for anything lately. My poor camera keeps calling my name, Flickr is patiently waiting for the occasional upload, I'd love to join in with Self Portrait Challenge for November (but am wondering how I'll fit it in), oh - and that's not to mention my beloved blog(s).
I think that because we opted to school all summer so that we could take our break this winter instead, it has put us at our "end of the year crunch." We have just a little left to do, but that little is filling our days entirely with lots of work and review. We should completely wrap things
up by the third week of November, conveniently in time for Thanksgiving, Christmas
and hunting season ;) They can't wait and neither can I!
I am really looking forward to our break, the free time at the holidays, the slower pace because of it, the time my boys get to spend with their dad doing their most favorite thing in the world - hunting, extra kitchen time and holiday planning with my girls. Fun times ahead...if we can just make it through these next few weeks!
