The Play Months..

"The play months of the year are here, so let us take our jobs as lightly as possible, keep house as little as we can, experiment not at all with doubtful things to eat.
At least, rest."
Quote from The Complete Home, published in 1879!

'Been coming and going (to So.Cal and back)..celebrating...retirement of a good friend, Lindy's dedication, and two of our children's birthdays.  Cleaning and clearing out drawers and cupboards to get ready for a garage sale. Putzing and pondering~~what little tweaks do I want to do on the house, change it up for the summer months..thinking about adding RED to the kitchen! Just little touches here and there.
Going to meetings..finding out where God wants me involved.
Spending time in solitude..to recharge my batteries.
And I am taking the above quote very seriously!
By the way, I've reduced my prices in my Etsy shop for this next week before they're removed from the listing. Guess I'm clearing that out, too!! ;-)

How are YOU going to spend the 'play months'?


  1. Your play months sound perfect! I'm still in the planning stages, do know the ocean and playing with the grandchildren on the beach is on, for sure!

    Love your blog!


  2. Love the quote and look forward to your "house tweekings" when you are ready to share!
    Love, Toni

  3. Hi Myrna, I love that quote! I WISH I had more play months! I have been putzing around too, cleaning and cutening up the porch, puttering in my big flower pots, etc. It is satisfying to putz and putter, don't you think? Enjoy your play months!

  4. Have fun my Dear friend...I can't wait to see what you are doing to your most beautiful home...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  5. Hi Myrna,

  8. Just wanted to drop by and say I've missed you here, Myrna! My play months will be spent mostly in my yard and garden and at yard sales. :) Blessings, Debra
