It's the Simple Things that Count


It really IS the simple things that count...don't you think?  Today, these are some of the simple things in my kitchen.  
 


And, a little closer look.  I wanted to share with you, once again, one of my favorite poems.  Written long ago and meaning a lot to people like me still.  Does it move you as it does me?
 
  

I would have used a "deep bowl of old blue' if I had one...but this one is old, so will do. 
 

Picked up these sun flowers while shopping at Walmart today, knowing I was going to treat you to this poem.  Mary Elizabeth Mahnkey, "Ozark Lyrics," 1934.   Now, she knew what she was talking about!

Hope you all are well 'out there.'  See you soon.  pat

Ah, for a kitchen large enough to hold a vase of sunflowers....

Hi, Pat .... Hope all is well. Isn't it nice that Autumn is trying to get here? It's been cool but tomorrow, we're supposed to have a 90* day with storms, then back to mid-70's. Gosh, those sunflowers are pretty. Have a good one!
