Thistlewood Farms. And this is my favorite room. You see, my house and I.....we are best friends. Some people talk to their plants. Some people talk to their pets. I talk to my house.
And first thing in the morning, when all the house is silent.... ....before four children need lunch money or hair bows tied or permission slips signed or family fun night forms filled out or great discussions on why Abraham Lincoln was such a great president or that president is spelled p_r_e_s_i_d_e_n_t not p_r_e_c_e_d_e_n_t. Before chaos reigns. When all is still. And it's just me and the house. I wake it up.
I tiptoe quietly from room to room....
.....and turn on first one lamp, then another.I karate chop a pillow here or there. Maybe even pick up a backpack or homework or tiny piece of paper or cheerio or a toothbrush or....
......a stinky sock or two (yikes).
And after the pillows are fluffed and the lights are on. And the stinky socks are picked up and another morning begins. It's a new day. And I can feel the house smile. May your house smile at you today, too :) If you want to read more about our journey with our smiling vintage farmhouse.....stop by for a visit at Thistlewood Farm.
