~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

Every Thursday at Like Mother, Like Daughter 


My mother made this doll several years ago...she's sooo pretty.  I found that little wicker chair in a second-hand store for just a few cents; pretty perfect!


Our traditional Shrove Tuesday fare:  Pancakes,  they make my children HAPPY.
Butter makes them HAPPIER.

Just moments before, Popcorn was lying in the sun, too!  (The sun wasn't moving that fast, she just moved herself into the shade.)  We still have frost in the morning...but the afternoons are wonderful!  Cool air, warm sun, which makes it perfect for gardening.


This room is one of our Lenten projects.  Organizing, purging simplifying, and cleaning will give us all much peace!

Go to Like Mother, Like Daughter, to find more contentment...


  1. All my kid would be {happy} with a stick of butter - the pancakes just are a good side, LOL!

    1. lol! Oh ya...butter AND syrup (pancakes on the side).

  2. I just have to admire people who can make handmade dolls. And those dogs... they're livin' the life! Looks to me like you're having wonderful days lately! Wishes for continued blessings!
