Remember this...

"It is while you are patiently toiling at the little tasks of life that the meaning and shape of the great whole of life dawn on you."    ~Phillips Brooks

 "I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see."  ~John Burroughs

Doing...   I really don't mind doing the's a reminder of a well lived life (I could do without matching the socks though).

Eating...  one of my favorite things about summer are the fresh peaches from the local orchard.

Reading...   I can't begin to express how much I love to read.  Books make me happy!

Watching...  Our family is really enjoying the Olympics this year.  So inspiring.

Drinking...  I drink ice tea pretty much all day long.  I make it with a little bit of sugar.  This summer we've been adding a splash of lemonade to the ice tea.  So good.


  1. Dawn my mouth is watering I could just do with a iced tea now. The Olympics have been so wonderful this year and being a Brit I'm so proud we have put on a good one

  2. Oh I see you got the Twyla book!! It's so fabulous, isn't it ?? I'm ordering my own copy -- I just can't give it back to the library!!!

  3. I, too, don't mind doing laundry. Socks are the worst. We "try" to use sock rings: Definitely a time saver. And, the summer after our kids finished 6th grade, they were in charge of their own laundry. This was one of the best decisions i ever made. Helped me give up control and helped them with time-management and responsibility. If they didn't do laundry, they wore dirty clothes - and I never made a comment. Thanks for the photo of the Twyla book - will definitely check it out.
