52 Weeks A Quiet Moment

52 week badge


This is our couch. I'ts brown corduroy and very soft. The left end is my spot where most everything  I need is right at my fingertips: magazines, remote, light, Puffs tissues, reading glasses and a blanket.
The sheer drapes let just the right amount of light in without being too dark or too bright.  The room looks dark here but really it's nicely lit with the sun's rays.

Since our two oldest kids have moved away, and the youngest back at school, and me working just part time I basically have lots to quiet time.  Sometimes it's a blessing and other times not so much.

If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.

This looks very inviting - and soft! I like the soft lighting in the photo - makes it seem very peaceful!

Ahhh, great minds think alike! :-)Nothing I love better than the sun streaming in on my "place". That looks like a wonderful couch!

We all need a special, quiet corner... the Thoreau quote is just perfect!

If that were my couch, we'd see a dog lounging on it! She has many quiet moments there, me not so much. ;)
