HOME SWEET HOME

Rain as I peer through my window this morning as promised on the weather report... Guess it will be another day for making tidy and arranging a nest we can feel warmth when coming home... Yesterday after  I went to town for groceries... I noticed the prices for the most part had really starting soaring as I had hear on the news last week that beef prices would raise 15 percent and most groceries 10 percent... I will be becoming a better shopper.... As we we in the check out line the cashier said to me... hope you filled up your gas tank as the prices just went up.. Seems that home is foremost in my thoughts anymore... I do feel very fortunate that my personal desires are felt most when I am at home... This is truly about tending to the most important parts of my life here. My home is my safety, and my retreat even when I am hard at work here. As the world spins sometimes out of control, I feel safe and peaceful { especially if I keep the news off} in my modest surrounding... Even though I am home  most every day  , I can still very honestly say my favorite days are spent right here... Our home as I stated before is very modest... but I think it has personality.. and I have hopes that in it's modesty it opens and has a sense of welcome if you come to visit as it does when I am at home... Even on the tight budget... I try not to let my creativity hold me back... I keep ideas on my computer and magazine pages always near by for help in inspiration... Certain textures seem to marry well in my eyes, even though they seem like unlikely partners... they do not seem to argue... I love the texture of old grain sack and the lettering of old and the very finest of lace together... A very unlikely marriage with a great appeal... personal touches always seem to share what one reads and what one collects.. Aromas often temps ones sense as to what they enjoy eating when dining... Hubby always loves it when he comes home from work and I have baked goods or a dinner simmering on the stove top or in the oven... He knows instantly he is in for a treat for the evening. in warm surroundings... All these everyday happenings manage to make a homey atmosphere... I am off to tidy up and keep things in order as I realize cleanliness does create hominess. Blessed be the spot where I can be messy !
