Justa Swingin'

My little sanctuary...

Thought I would share one of my most favorite spots, my little corner of the world...my swing bed. A place for reading, knitting, relaxing with my hubby and a glass of wine or two. I have to say, for the past few days, in between doing laundry, grocery shopping and making dinner, I've enjoyed my little "retreat"
My upwards view:

Teetering on the Fence of Fall and Summer...
It's that time of year..chilling mornings requiring a long sleeved shirt, then beautiful, sunny afternoons. I bought the "scent of the month" Yankee tart, yesterday...Pumpkin Frost..smells heavenly. This is the time of the year that I start to get excited for fall to arrive but yet wanting a few more hot summer days at the lake. This is the time of the year when my Mother's garden zinnias are at their biggest. A time when I no longer want to make summer salads, but think about making casseroles, roast beef dinners and baked goods. Of course, it's also that time of year when I start to think more about the knitting projects that I want to complete. Speaking of projects, I have two in the midst for Violet and Henry..two sweet little additions to our family. I can't wait to meet them in person. It's also a time when Jay keeps bringing tomatoes into the kitchen from our little horseshoe pit converted 3x3 garden..more tomatoes than a 3x3 should ever produce.
After a few days off, I'm ready to work a 7p-7a shift tonight. As I look back, I've been working 45-50 hours a week, but I still feel like I am at home more than before and for some reason I have much more energy than I ever have.
Madison is an official "high schooler" now. Having a hard time believing that she's in 7th grade. In the past month, we have allowed her to wear some "very light" makeup..a little lavender or light blue shadow and a little light pink blush..but NO BLACK eyes. So far, she's doing fine with wearing just a little. Logan is taking a full load at LC for the fall semester. With classes like Human Bio, Psych and Algebra, he will be kept busy.
Enjoy your week, my friends, I'll be back soon.

I love your swing bed. I'm just green with envy over such a beautiful resting spot.
