Today is my day off

I was very busy yesterday...housework, beef stew, pot pies and laundry. So, today is my day off. Well, that is after I change the sheets on my bed and the laundry is done. Then it is ****"La dolce far niente" for me today.
Thank you to those who emailed me to tell me you were interested in my give away....I chose Lynda Ackerson. She plans to stitch this lovely sampler for her younger sister who is a 5 year breast cancer survivor. Congratulations to your sister for this milestone. It will be in the mail this week.
The footstool is fixed! I still would like to find another footstool to use with my rocker and leave this one in my bedroom. The hunt will begin!

We had some light rain late yesterday and of course winds. The garden looks quite shabby today. It will take some time spent to get it back to my organized shabby. I love the wild look of plants but this is more than that. I am glad I thought to pick my beans yesterday morning
and a few tomatoes. I am glad I planted the beans as I have enjoyed them in small pickings so nothing is wasted. Those tomatoes will be in my salad today along side the beef stew.
The laundry is ready for the dryer, the bed needs making and time to have some toast with my coffee. Thank you for taking time to visit with me and for the kind words. Thank you for your friendship.

Enjoy your day of relaxation! Your beans and tomatoes look yummy. We didn't get any rain yesterday, but last night at 9 pm when Dan took the dogs out for the last time we had received a little rain at some point that evening. I have socks on today... it's chilly out!

Mmmm, green beans! Nice to pick a bit at a time and enjoy. I once planted strawberries and when they came on they all went ripe at once and I picked a giant bowl and we could not eat them fast enough. And that was it, hardly got a berry after that! Beans sound more my style.

A Sunday off is a nice thing to have. Last Sunday, I only got dressed in 'real clothes' at 3pm...I don't often do that, but sometimes idlesness is just what you need.

Pot pies (I had to look that up) and stew sounds so delicious to me. And the look of your brand and tomatoes makes my mouth water.
I hope you had a relaxing day.
