In the little wood
Just a few pictures to remind me that life is not just house work

Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

planted; potatoes, salsify


  1. Pretty pictures!
    I wish I could follow even some of your list! I guess, I used to do a lot of that, but old age and pajamas have caught up to me! :-)

  2. I'm with Sharon...now that Don is gone I don't have a weekly schedule I follow. I do try to make grocery lists every now and then, when I don't I always forget to get something I need ;-) My baby is almost 46, I'm so happy I had the time to play with him when he was little...time goes by so fast and before you know it they're graduating high school. Enjoying your photos!

  3. Cathy,
    A wonderful post and a good reminder for all of us. God bless the children.

  4. You are well organised with your lists. love the quote. Stop and smell the roses and take a walk in the little wood, which is beautiful.


Please feel free to leave a few words, I love to know what youre thinking.
