Memorial Day

Remembering all those who have gone before us,
and made the ultimate sacrifice,
so that we could be free.

 The real heroes.  Those that gave everything they had.

When There Is No Room For a Bedside Table

I love our home.  It is small and cozy.  The rooms are small too, but at this time in our lives we don't need a big sprawling house (we have a big, sprawling yard, and that may be the death of us).  Our  bedroom is tiny and this doesn't bother us at all, usually.  The only problem is that there is absolutely no room for any kind of a bedside table.  And I love to read.  At night.  In my bed.  The bed is pushed up to a window, so I use the ledge for my cell phone, glasses, book light, chapstick, lotion, etc.  After reading I put the book on the floor beside the bed.  My dear hubby usually makes the bed (he works nights and is often still in bed when I leave for work).  He pulls the bed out to make my side, and there he picks up my book from the floor, has to get the cell phone cord out of his way, and hopefully does not knock anything off the window sill.  It's one of those little things that bugs him every morning.  I needed a solution, so I went to where I always go for inspiration - Pinterest.  I couldn't find anything I really liked or that worked for me so I went to Plan B.  An idea of my own!

Sunday Family Time

This past Sunday was one of those stunningly perfect spring days.  Often in New England we go straight from winter to summer,
and skip right over spring.
It was a relaxing day with nothing really planned.
We hung out as a family
(minus Nick).
