Simple pleasures for a Monday morning..........
Getting up early and watching the daylight come...........
Feeding the livestock - always pleased to see me!
Hearing the rain on the windows, the swishing of the tyres as the early traffic passes
Sorting the laundry - clean clothes, folding, stacking, putting away
Ironing - transforming a higledy pig into a lovely stack of neatness
Turning up the Rayburn for baking and making tea from my great grandmother's cast iron kettle
Changing the bed linen
Laughing at the dog when he is distinctly unimpressed with the rain
Having a giggle with the post girl about her weekend shenanigans
The clean, fresh soapy smell of homemade washing powder
Opening the Jiffy bag with my new book inside
A thick cotton mophead to clean the kitchen floor with - a delight to use
Slotting in a few rows of knitting when I "should be cleaning"
Realising there isn't as much housework to do as I thought.............
The smell of another bucket of ripe apples to be processed
A full, well -stocked larder and store cupboard, with a view towards winter and harder times
Seeds to sort and store away, decide if I need any more...........
The delights of autumn colours right outside my kitchen window:
Life is good.
