A Lovely Restful Day

Log Cabin with Deer








I have been so busy all week, which made today extra special. I took the entire day off! The house was already clean and neat, so all I had to do was rest. I watched old episodes of "I Love Lucy" (on DVD) with John (12) and Mr. White. We laughed for hours.

Then Mr. White made me the most delicious, healthy lunch! It was a whole wheat sub roll filled with fresh spinach leaves and green leaf lettuce. It also had a little bit of sliced pickles and cheddar cheese. It was topped with Olive Oil. Very good!

The children are happy and as precious as ever. I started reading a new book to John. It is, "Cheaper by the Dozen," by Frank and Ernestine Gilbreth. It was originally published in 1948. John and I just read a little bit each day. It is such a funny book.

I am really enjoying this slow-paced day. I think I will plan more of these throughout the week.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Blessings,
Mrs. White

Hi Mrs. White-
I starting watching Leave it to Beaver on hulu.com. It is a website where you can find episodes of some tv shows. I plan to watch I Love Lucy when I get through the Leave it to Beaver shows. Glad you had a nice relaxing day :)

Tina, I love both those books too! I also have both the movies. They are all scratched up and ruined so I will have to get some new copies! So glad to hear you like them too!

Sarah, Leave it to Beaver is such a fun show to watch. Enjoy the I Love Lucy Episodes!

Thanks Heather!

Blessings,
Mrs. White
