and on thursday.

:: thursday ::

i'll be for the most part staying home ..  
spending time with the pooch, 
watering the garden, 
pulling plants that no longer 
have a place for the season, 
home keeping, 
putting planning pieces together 
for an upcoming vintage trailer rally, 
choosing a couple drawers to sift 
and toss or merely organize, 
prep for a simple chicken stir-fry dinner 
(wednesday i planned zip so the hubs 
had a bagel and was just dandy 
about it thank you very much..
i expect my uncle Al 
will give me grief for that one..
he reads my blog ..wink), 
important phone call(s), 
& talking with my mom ♥ 
(everybody needs their mother 
at one time or another 
or even more often 
or lots more often). 
i may even take myself out for 
coffee or tea or a skinny latte. 
and a nap. definitely a little nap - 
about 10 minutes will do. do you nap? 

i admit to being curious as to what she's gazing at or thinking.
and i have to say how very much i love the kitchen..

time to reflect. 
to focus on the essential.
considering much.
choosing wisely.

... time has a way of fleeting ...
i pray i use my time wisely.
and generously.
in His leading.
and in His love.

Majesty ..
Your grace has found me
just as i am ..
empty handed,
but alive in Your hands.

Lovely images, wise words. And I love that "Majesty" song : )

I just want to say, thanks for blogging!

You would love my kitchen then, Sherry. I think she's admiring her rose garden and considering picking of bouquet for the table. You seem to be in a very good place at present, how wonderful is that? xo

when in doubt or sorrow or concern or glee ... praise.
as to blogging, often i wonder why i do. but here
i am .. ♥

Sherry said...

my magic friend ::
i'd love to see a picture of your kitchen.
i prefer the vintage style .. there's such
charm in yesteryear for many reasons. found
an area on the coast - a little village -
and nearly all the kitchens are this style.
oh to nab one of those sweet places..!

Deanna said...

Yes, I do nap from time to time.
It helps get me thru the day so I have some energy in the evenings.
Blessings to you and may you find the time to just gaze.
Sometimes we just don't take time to gaze long enough.

I really liked all the pictures you have on here today. I smiled when I saw the vintage kitchen and the lady washing dishes by hand. I appreciate this time and the women who lived it. Yes, I do take naps, not every day, but often. It sounds like you have a lovely Thursday planned out. Cherish your phone conversation with your mom, Sherry. : )

Sherry, I loved the gazing out the kitchen window photo too, then read your caption and saw it matched my thoughts exactly.

Cheryl said...

A sweet and simple plan for the day. Those days are often the best.

Nap? When I can! For me, 20 minutes is the magic number.

(My new laptop came yesterday. I am back in business!)

Love this whole post - words, pictures and your contemplating!

Sherry said...

deanna ::
you're right. sometimes we allow our lives
to be full to overflowing with busyness
that we can't find time for a thoughtful moment.
i want to gaze. i want to carve out time
for gazing. ♥

Sherry said...

Sheri ::
my day has been going well overall..
i'm half way through with those two
drawers. and i talked with my mom
for about 15 minutes. she lives
alone and *is* lonely a fair amount
of time. sure, she has friends that
live in the apartment complex but
they're not family.. you know?
squeezes my heart.

Sherry said...

jean ::
maybe she has young children playing in the backyard..?
or is keeping watch for her husband returning
from work..? or maybe keeping watch for the postman
in hopes a letter from far off is arriving!
i like the 3rd scenario today.

Sherry said...

cheryl ::
hurrah!!!!!!! for the new lappytop!

Sherry said...

GrammaGrits ::
well thank you, friend ♥

Deanna Rabe - Creekside Cottage Blog said...

I think you could post your grocery list and it would be interesting!

I think she’s looking to see what her crazy neighbors are up to! (Grin)

I never used to nap. It now love to nap when I get a chance.

A daily talk with Mama, a must, and needed. xoxo

Sherry said...

deanna :: you want to see my grocery list..?! lol

Sherry said...

carissa anne ::
always sweet to hear her voice. ♥
{{hi, friend}}

Thistle Cove Farm said...

No 10 minute nap for me; that's just enough to put me in a foul mood - lol. Love the majesty...thought provoking!

Teri said...

Such a lovely posting. I love fluffin' and featherin' our little cottage. My kitchen is very vintage and quiet old fashioned. I love the vintage kitchen you have shared, so simple and so quaint. I have a window over my kitchen sink and I love peeping out as I do up our dishes. I look forward to browsing your past postings. Homespun Hugs ♥ Teri

Sherry said...

hEllo, Teri. :)
thank you for visiting..

Sherry said...

Sandra @ Thistle ::
no foul mood allowed! lol ♥

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

Beautiful flow of your beautiful thoughts. Enjoyed very much!

Brenda xox

Sherry said...

brenda :: thank you :)

Christine said...

I like the picture of the very, young woman gazing out the kitchen window. By the look of all those dishes, she must have other around. It might be her children or maybe her siblings. But her expression has her miles away.

Thank you for your your comforting wisdom.

Sherry said...

christine ::
i'm thinking she counts it as all joy
to complete her task of cleaning the
dishes. based on your thought, it's a
blessing to have such a task.
