~ a thoroughly clean home and gleaming woodwork
~ the celebration of 16 years of marriage, thanks be to God

~ a family field trip and the joyful exploration of our two delighted children
~ a taste of this and that at the chocolate factory
~ the final soccer game of the season
~ lunch with the coaches and other home schooling families
~ enough energy to go and cheer on the coaches as they played soccer
~ glorious sunshine and cool fall air
~ cozy warm sweaters and snuggles

~ lullaby’s and sweetly sleeping children


  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend.

  2. I was wondering if you could explain to me.... what is 'the glooming'? I have been meaning to look it up, as I have been reading George MacDonald again and have come across it... then to hear you use the term...I would rather have a definition from a person than the internet!

  3. Hilda - I am not entirely sure about this, but we think of it as the time after sunset when the sky is beginning to darken, but there is still enough light to see a bit. Twilight is another word we use. C.S. Lewis used it in the Narnia series too and the children have listened to them all, so they like to use that phrase. It can also be spelled 'gloaming' and it is old English. We like to sing a campfire song that uses 'in the gloaming, draw nearer ...'. I'm not sure if you can distinguish glooming from dusk, but we do - for us at dusk there is no light from the sun visable, and it is the darker part of twilight. I hope that answers you question!
