Life at Home

Sun Terrace

It is bright and sunny outside. All the snow is melting. Grandpa (who along with Nana, lives with us) is fixing my clothesline in preparation for warm spring weather. I look forward to hanging clothes on the line.  From what I understand, the Amish do their laundry very early in the morning. A common sight would be driving by the farmland and seeing all the clothes out, drying in the morning sunshine.

I can't wait to sweep the front porch and sit in my rocking chair while the children ride their bikes. I look forward to planting flowers, even though I have never done that before in my life. It will be new for me. This is the year I will have my first garden - come what may!

I need to bake some cookies today.  I will make chocolate chip. I will also make a gallon of iced tea.  I am reading this afternoon, but the supper hour is coming quickly. I need to get in the kitchen, turn on some Frank Sinatra and have a happy evening!
