The Balm of Home

The mister and I have been camping and hiking and wearing ourselves out in the mountains, and I do plan to post detailed travelogues pretty soon. In the meantime I am my usual post-travel self, however that may be described; I'm too tired to try right now.

It was a blessed day today, with time to give a drink to the flowers, wash sheets and bake a pie. The green beans are coming on -- I think I'll pick a few tomorrow. The begonia is brightening a space several yards in diameter, and the ancho peppers look like small trees.

Even I am surprised at how soothed I am just to be in My Place.

Glad your home has given you a sweet welcome back. Hope the weekend is restful. HappyBD2B.

Lovely pictures, GJ. Can't wait to hear about your travels--and how the green beans tasted!

Like you, I am always glad to return to the routine and simple things of home. Please pass the pie.

There's no place I'd rather be than home except maybe at my parents' home where I grew up. And if my grandparents were alive, I'd love being at their house. Home=Love
