So simple, so true.

Yesterday, I said I would give you an overview on what has been happening here since we arrived. I don't know how many times today I have headed in this direction and something else took precedence. I apologize. I am certain tomorrow I will get an "all caught up" post up.

In the meantime, I stumbled on a quote, in a blog I have visited in the past. I used to visit One Woman's Cottage Life, when we were beginning our redoing of the Chesterton, house. I found her blog very informational and fun. This quote can be appreciated by all, but for those downsizing, spring/fall cleaning, remodeling, or relocating... it is precious and I just had to touch base with all of you today, so I thought I would offer this quote to you. It struck me as so true.

Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. ~William Morris

And of course, beauty means different things to everyone.

Have a beautiful day,

Thanks for taking time out during this hectic time and visiting my blog. Moving is such an enormous task. The last time I moved was 21 years ago and it was ony about 15 miles! I can imagine the magnitude of work you have to do. So with that, take it slow and easy. There's always tomorrow! Maggie sends her greetings to Baxter!

Teresa, I love the William Morris quote and try to follow that advice. Seems I need to take a run through of the house every season or so to ask myself if things are useful and/or beautiful to me. Thanks for the gentle reminder. Your new pic is so nice. Good luck with the settling in to your new digs!

Wise words indeed, now if only I could apply them!
