I found and bought this pretty little dogwood garland on Etsy tonight. Isn’t it pretty? She’s a six footer.
I thought it would be the perfect bit of pretty to hang above the windows in our dining area. I think there is a rule of physics that says when you hang pretty flowers above your windows that the eye won’t notice the tired linoleum on the floors beneath your dining table.
I miss the hardwood floors in our old house. Lately I have been missing just about everything about the New Old House. I shed a tear for it every once in awhile, in the shadow of self-doubt where I’m hidden from view.
Did we do the right thing?
Did I really walk away from my home??
Where are we going and when will we ever get there?
Then I put on a strong face and carry on, another day and another step closer to that Harvest.
where all the flowers are sure to abound around us.
a beautiful crop.
a testament to our steadfastness.
