When it snows..... Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps January 17, 2018 Praise ye the Lord! Simply at Home Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps Comments Connie1/17/2018 10:37 AMYesterday I had time to visit with three of my sister's children. As we discussed life and the fact that we are all now the old folks in the family . . . it came up that I spend too much time at home. They all think that I should get out more, but what they don't understand is that I am right where I want to be. That I don't need to seek new things to entertain me, I am content to enjoy the things around me. I quilt and sew and in the summer I garden and can and in between I play music with my friends. I can stop and smell the roses, right here in my own backyard. Life is good and the simpler the the better:)I've been retired for 6 years now, and they are just starting to think about retiring. I see my time as precious . . . so while they are out enjoying the rat-race, I'll be sitting on my front porch watching the farmer across the road mow his hay:) Life is Good!I loved your snow photos, everything looks so peaceful and serene.Have a lovely day.Connie :)P.S. If you have the time, come visit and help me celebrate 6 years of bloggingwith my anniversary Give-A-Way.

Simple living, enjoying the garden, flowers in my yard, and just being home. Thank you for the invite I will be right over.DeleteRepliesReplyReplyBlondie's Journal1/17/2018 11:19 PMYour pictures are so beautiful--snow always is, doesn't it seem? The kids always make me smile. But yes, it's pretty frigid everywhere. We went sledding this past weekend and it didn't last long!I hope your daughter makes it home before long. In the meantime, I know you will embrace every moment!Jane ReplyDeleteRepliesSimply At Home1/23/2018 12:31 AMHello sweet Jane, aww thank you. She made it home, I am so thankful that she did. We loved every moment of her visit. Thank you for coming by.DeleteRepliesReplyReplyLeigh1/19/2018 9:14 AMOh my, enjoying the sparkling snowy world from a sun-filled room is a true delight! Yes, we're stay at home people too. I always thought that vacations are intended for people who don't like their jobs. But why would I want to get away from a life that I love?ReplyDeleteRepliesSimply At Home1/23/2018 12:33 AMOh I love that...I agree, why do I want to get away from the life and home I love. Thank you for the visit have a wonderful day.DeleteRepliesReplyReplyFaye Henry1/22/2018 8:16 PMLove your post and find we are on the same page... Love being home and seldom want to travel very far which irritates some of my friends.. smile.. Your pics are lovely especially the one with the red carnations.. So pretty.. We have a bit of snow but not a lot this year which is fine with me.. Several years ago Eastern Canada was hit with storm after storm and we didn't think it would ever melt.. But it did.. grin.. God bless you dear.. xoReplyDeleteRepliesSimply At Home1/23/2018 12:35 AMHello Faye!! It is so good to see your comment. I have been missing you. Enjoy your year of less snow, who know what next year holds. We had a mild year last year. This year we have only had these to storms. But we still have February to go through. Take Care, God Bless you as well. ((HUGS))DeleteRepliesReplyReplyMarilyn @ MountainTopSpice1/23/2018 12:16 AMOh the snow was so beautiful that you received! We haven't gotten a whole lot of snow this winter, we've had more rain than anything, although we still do have some snow on the ground. I am one of those who loves winter, and snow, although I know that having to stay inside does get old. We haven't had the windchill issues here, and that would definitely bring cabin fever! I just love your sweet study spot with all the fresh flowers, looks like a lovely spot to sit and rest a spell. Sweet girls that you have :) Hugs to you today!
