A glimpse of my evenings...

...finding a quiet corner (usually the laundry room!)...
...talking to a very special friend...


Alexander Graham Bell was a genius.
So were the Wright Brothers.

That made me smile. :) Telephones and airplanes are pretty amazing inventions! You look very happy! :)

This is so funny! In my house when I want to get privacy(and quiet) to talk on the phone I go to the pantry.

Just reminded me of myself and my big family. =)

Yes. Whatever we would do if not for these great inventions...and love.

If I may get ahead of myself, may I request that you please share the story of how things happened to be at the point where you love being in quiet corners, in the laudnry room? *grin*
Of course, only if you please and/or in the near future.

Ben says: The word "sweet" is used so often these days on your comments, it's enough to give someone a toothache!

But you really DO look sweet! and HAPPY! I wonder what Dan looks like on the other end of the line?? Does he use the laundry room too??

What would love be for this younger generation without telephones and airplanes??!

Blessings to the two of you!

Yeah, those dear Wright brothers and Mr. Bell. Such beloved, precious, invaluable folk!!

Looking forward to the story. By the way this is Anonymous commenter number 2. Thank you to Kori for seconding my sentiments. As you can tell, I do love history, details... It's not enough to show the picture of a mountaintop; the hills and valleys and forests and streams leading thereto are what make the picture complete.

Oh my goodness you look so much like Rachel! I've met her so I know exactly what she looks like.
