Room With A View

my room with a view
And with such a view on a pretty summery evening, who can string words together on a paper or 'puter screen? We're sitting here more dreamy-eyed than anything at all this loveliness.
As you will note, I've not been around here of late, but we are well and happy. Been gardening. Been painting my study and hubby's den (after I stripped old wallpaper border and filled the gazillion holes I found in the walls from my frequent moving of pictures from one spot to another.) Furniture and computers and books shelves are all awry. Books packed away, desks dismantled, lace off the windows (which I'm loving as it lets in all that northerly summer light).
'Tis a good thing those upheavals and messes don't bother me as they once would have. It's much easier to turn a blind eye to the piles and look out my window as I see such beauty that presses lightness in my soul.
Well, look at that, we got a few words strung together after all.  Now...I'll be back to have a real visit with you all again. Soon. I miss you.

“One June evening, when the orchards were pink-blossomed again, when the frogs were singing silverly sweet in the marshes about the head of the Lake of Shining Waters, and the air was full of the savor of clover fields and balsamic fir woods, Anne was sitting by her gable window. She had been studying her lessons, but it had grown too dark to see the book, so she had fallen into wide-eyed reverie, looking out past the boughs of the Snow Queen, once more bestarred with its tufts of blossom.” ~ L.M. Montgomery

Good night and sweet sleep, dear kindred hearts,



  1. Well that explains it! Enjoy your time away...

  2. You've been busy and it sounds like there is more to do. Thanks for taking the time to post a little sweet inspiration. Bestarred is a lovely word.

  3. How lovey to gaze out of your window and see beautiful flowers. I have roses outside my window and spend quite a lot of early morning time gazing!

  4. Humm... not wonder you have been absent.
    I admire all your ambition and spirit.

    Carry on....

  5. I had a chance to read several of your posts this morning.
    It was a peaceful start to my morning. Thank you.

  6. And what a view it is! Thank you for sharing it. :)

  7. Now that is a beautiful view!!


  8. A lovely summer view, indeed! Love the Anne of Green Gables quote. Enjoy your painting - I just love fresh paint! xo Karen

  9. I love lilacs, and yours are beautiful. Funny, though. You still have them blooming, while here in SW Idaho, they've been done since about the 2nd week of May.


  10. Hi Brenda,
    I just wanted to let you know I featured you in a blog tour on my blog. If you are interested in participating, here's the link:

    1. I'd love to, Eileen. I'll be over to see your instructions for posting!

  11. Your blog always adds beauty to my day. Thank you! I like the tiny flowers between the words, and the lilacs are gorgeous!

  12. Hi Brenda, so much beauty. I could gaze at that all day. Sounds like you have been quite busy. Projects do that and also feel good when they are finished. Hugs
