The best things in life are the nearest:
Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes,
flowers at your feet, duties at your hand,
the path of right just before you.
Do not grasp at stars,
but do life's plain, common work as it comes,
certain that daily duties and daily bread
are the sweetest things in life.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Greetings my friends..
The lady of the woods is nestled amongst the trees with young Connor, taking each day as it comes. Jet lag is behind us and the real work has begun. We have had a few long hot days but the rewards have been well worth it. One of them is the chance to sit in the chair above.
So far, mother and son are still speaking. If you want to connect with a child..I advise taking them to a quiet place for a period of time.. a bit of alone time can do wonders as you rid yourselves of the static of life and take it slowly and surely. We have been busy and have a long list ahead of us but it has been good work...physical work with time to play.
I imagine my posts in the coming days will be short and sweet...as it should be in the summer. Like a summer harvest in New Hampshire, I am hoping they will be short, sweet and plentiful. Thank you all for your well wishes for our summer adventure...you are the best!
Warmest wishes to you and yours...
PS... I wrote a while back about Tricia Rose and my desire for Rough Linen bed linens...my order arrived and I love, love, love them. If you want to treat yourself to something extra special this summer, have a look at the summer cover. I also picked up the pinafore for work around the house and barn. It was a gift from me to me. A fragrant lavender bag was added to the order for having spent over $100.00...compliments of Tricia Rose. A lovely gesture..

The day has finally arrived...I am off to Tahilla Farm tonight with
my son Connor for the summer. I just finished up two wonderful
months visiting with my daughters in Vietnam,
with the kind of time that young
mothers with four children rarely get...one on one time.
