Wishing for things today...

I think I'm getting sick (scratchy throat) so I'm really just wishing I didn't have to go to work today because all day long I talk to people and this feeling in my throat is the feeling I get when laryngitis sets in. I wish I could just be quiet and domestic today...Here are some photos of my former domestic life. I'm longing for doing just one of these things today.

Baking Amish white bread...then eating the ends with butter.

Doing some needlework or knitting.

Snuggling with my two favorite girls.

Playing in the garden.

Painting cups of tea.

Picking strawberries.

Airing out the quilts.


  1. Can't you call in sick? I know. I know. I used to work in an office and would drag myself in because I felt it was my duty. Now I know better. Even though I don't work outside the home, when I feel as though I might be coming down with something I get back into bed and spend the day reading! I rarely actually get sick anymore.

    1. Hahaha I wish! Duty is a strange thing. Really though, I would feel so bad leaving my co-workers high and dry. I took a bag of cough drops with me and that helped. Sick or not, getting in bed with a book sounds AMAZING!

  2. I am longing for a purely domestic day too. Today, I throw my old belongings to the garage sale wolves. Perhaps someone will buy that old 1980 chandelier of mine. Heck, I would even be willing to look the other way as it walked off on its own. Get better sissy, and if that doesn't work, get even.

    1. Thanks sissy, I feel much better today...Of course I'm not talking to anyone. I'm off and I'm cooking!
