Finally ~

I am going 
H O M E 
what a wonderful word!
either later today or first thing tomorrow morning I will be homeward bound.

I cannot wait to get there and see all of my friends ~ 
breathe fresh air, get my hands in the dirt and sleep in my own nest.

 I will be greeted by many sweet faces like this one:

"mickey bad-boy"

 and this one,


"boogie sugar-britches"

and this one too...


"Tigger Mow Mow"

I will sit in the sun and soak it in ~
and if it rains I will sit in it and drink it in as well.

I want to see the stars and hear the owls in the backwoods
and watch my toads hopping around under the porch light...

I want to plunge my fingers down into the thickness and feel the lanolin in our sheep's wool ~
and pat the smooth shine of our donkey's coats.

I want to snuggle with my husband.

oh such seemingly silly things to want to do!!!
but to me they are not silly at all...
~ these things are my life's blood.

thankfully, because of my online friends,
I have at least gotten the chance to smell fresh flowers ~ 
beautiful flowers that were delivered to me yesterday, 
ones that filled my senses with happiness
and filled my heart with love.




be it ever so humble....
home sweet home
home is best
...home again for me.

home
just repeating the word soothes my soul and calms my nerves!




I'll bask in the glow of returning home for a day or so ~ 
to recuperate from this foreign place I've been in for a week...
to detox my brain & body.
{although I will be on yet another round of antibiotics once home, at least I can begin my probiotics}

then I will dive head-first into my work once again 
...and return to doing what I love most, working on your orders and creating.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has written, called, emailed, pm'd, convo'd 
and sent their messages of healing & positivity ~ your continued patience & kindness regarding  your orders being late has made this a much less-stressful time for me.

I'll post once I'm home & settled in!


~ Blessings from the Farm ~

I understand completely. I begin to feel that way when on vacation, so when you're someplace unintentionally it must be awful. Happy you're going Home Sweet Home! Remember to continue to take care -- don't jump in too quickly. Allow the recuperation to continue! Grins & Hugs!!

Thank you. the quilts picture is beautiful. The feathered star must be a southern

powerful healing. Julia in SC
