Simple Pleasures

Welcome to Simple olde homestead. As I have no new finished projects to show you, I thought I would show you my home. Here...on most will find a simpler life and a much slower pace. Believe it or not she is almost 100 years old, but it does not show the age either outside or inside. Decorating has been a very big challenge as she looks almost "new" on the inside. I am very comfortable here and just love all her windows, however that means less wall space to hold "things" and furniture placement can be a bit tricky. But we have managed to fill her to the brim with stuff of olde. The den and deck are the only additions added to the house, the den was added in the 50's and I am not sure 'bout the deck, I just know I love sitting on it and looking out over the"lower 40" as we call it and into the woods. I had been a city girl all my life until 3 years ago when we bought this. After living out here I hope never to have to return to city living. The peace and quite I have found is amazing. I have found out a lot about myself during some much needed soul searching at night under the stars. I feel blessed to be her "keeper" during my journey here.
O.K. enough of the "gushy" stuff, how are you all doing? What is everyone working on? Today I am not sure what I am going to be working on as it is Errand Day...yuk...but I am putting it off as long as possible, I hate going out in the rain. But we need the essentials like toilet paper so I really must go. I will go into the home shop later and try and work with some of the old clothes that I was gifted yesterday...never know what I may end up with!!
Many blessings to you for a wonderful day.
