Country Life

I spent the last couple of weeks of my vacation in the countryside, with my grannies. No Tv, no Internet. That was exactly what I needed – the quiet time just for myself and for my family. No running around, no driving around; just nature, books, knitting, crochet and good fresh food.

I think we all need it sometimes. Just to remember how big the small things are.

The singing of birds in the morning,

Knitting and Crochet

…the dew in the early morning,

Knitting and Crochet

…breakfast,

 …the vegetables picked in the garden…

 … washed with the water from the well

cut and served with sour cream and a good piece of rye bread.

The smell of the wildflowers,

…the rustle of leaves in the forest,

Knitting and Crochet in the Countryside

…freshly picked berries,

 …a long walk with the dog,

…creating outside,

Knitting and Crochet in the Countryside

… a good book before sleep.

Feeling truly grateful.
