Laundry Day by the Sea...

This was my laundry day at the seaside cottage...
which tends to be blustery and noisy with sea winds at times
As pretty as the sea is...
I rather like the laundry scene in the painting below

I find it serene, peaceful, quiet...
and cloistered from the noise and openess
This is the model for my farm cottage wash day...
I'm giving up the closeness of the sea to someone else
I love the sea but, would rather visit it or see it from a mountaintop...
There is just something about quiet country living in the hills that suit me better

Wherever you live, have a wonderful day, or night


  1. I love the painting of the laundry scene. It makes the chore seem so ideal!

  2. The first picture of you, really is pretty, w/ the sea in the background. But I can understand needing a break from the constant wind/breeze and noise of the sea.

    Our former home in the country was in a very windy location. Because of farming practices here in the US, too many tree lines have been cleared out, and there aren't many wind breaks here in this part of the country. Calm days are a treasure, even here in this little town.

  3. Thank you so much for dropping by, and for letting me know that you are following my blog. It sounds like you are living in a wonderful farm. I am looking forward to reading more.
