Open Windows


Among some of my favorite days are those at home with the windows open, a light breeze blowing to cool the house and bringing with it the sweet smell of spring.  My favorite window of all is the window above our kitchen sink, overlooking the side yard and an old shade tree. 



 The combination of the sound of birds chirping, a light breeze and the sun shining somehow make even chores enjoyable when I'm standing here.


(Made even better by the sweet perfume of peonies (thanks to my neighbor).)


I hope you have a wonderful spring week!

  11. I so enjoy your posts, they are uplifting, and wholesome. They remind me of my childhood on a dairy with all the animal care and gardening and cooking posts you do. Thank you for all of the beautiful pictures you take, your simple and yet so welcoming home. Keep doing what you do!!

  14. We've been enjoying a beautiful spring here in New York, as well. The windows have been open for about a week now without any kind of air conditioning needed. It's supposed to get warmer (mid 80's) this week so I know the windows will be closed soon enough. For now, I'm enjoying them being open and listening to the kids playing on the playground of the elementary school that is behind our house and the mama bird that has built a nest right outside our back door. : ) Have a wonderful day!!! xo
