~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~
Brought to you by Like Mother, Like Daughter
This week's contentment is the result of a sudden urge I had last night to sweep and mop all the floors on one side of the house - dining room, pantry and kitchen. I hadn't done it in a while and was tired of sticky patches! By 10 pm, the kitchen was sparkling, the rooms were tidy and the floors were clean. I just had to stay up a little longer and enjoy my quiet, clean rooms!
I lit a few candles and got out a few books, ready to settle in for a few minutes of reading and reflection.
I think I breathed an audible sigh of contentment when I sat down. How happy to enjoy the fruit of one's labours!
This picture is slightly out of focus due to the lighting, but it captures the overall atmosphere of calm. I had been longing for fresh flowers, so I picked up these tulips at the grocery store today in the 50% off bucket.
Flowers and candles and books! I'm in heaven!
This is the book we have just started for our moms small group, another thing I am quite happy about!
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
