the flow of blessings

I have many reasons to rejoice today:

1. the shutters are in place! see my flickr for proof.

2. unsightly lilac roots were dug up in the front and side yards. A large piece of machinery, Hubby at the wheel, accomplished this task starting at 5:30 a.m. I appreciate early-risers, and cook a big breakfast for them anytime! Landscaping is next. Any thoughts?

3. I baked a cherry pie for someone my family appreciates. The fruit was gathered from our tree. Neat.

4. we take our newly refurbished boat to the St. Lawrence today. Relishing the company of dear friends and family will take us into the evening.

5. I got to chat with Friend #7 on the phone . She had just woken up, her voice was froggy, and I'm sure her hair was a veritable bird's nest. She was eating yoghurt while talking to me. Boy, I love her. She visits home next month.

Enjoy the day, eat watermelon, take in the fireworks, grill chicken, play with little kids. Just don't forget to thank a veteran. And the Good Lord, from Whom all blessings flow.

The shutters look great! You guys have done a wonderful job with that house. It has certainly come a long way, inside and out.

My life is an open book I see! =) I do visit home next month, but can we please not say next month because that makes it sound like it's a whole month away; let's just say in a few weeks, k?

I love shutters! They are a beautiful detail that warms up the outside of a house.

I have a couple of thoughts on landscaping ... perhaps some cedars or other shrub-type trees to soften the corners of your house ... and definitely a gently curving brick or stone path to the door.

Perhaps an herb garden near the kitchen, and definitely fragrant flowers under the bedroom window. Those are little details that unify the outdoors with the indoors in fair weather. But now I'm getting into personal preferences instead of generalities that you can personalize. I get carried away with these things!
