My feelings exactly!

English cottage

"I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give"
~Thomas Jefferson

I like your re-decorating. I love to play with my blog, it is like another tiny room to play in. And I would love to live in that "modest" cottage with the great roof and all the beautiful flowers. And books...gotta have lots of books!

Did you know that Thomas Jefferson & John Adams died on the same day which was on July 4th 1826.....the anniversary of the signing of the Dec. of Independence.....50 years to the date of a matter of fact! How cool is that?! Cant help but think God really loved those men. Oh & I learned that from watching the HBO series "John Adams". This was a great series that left me & Danny balling at the end! Well, actually several times inbetween!

Hi Sandra! It's Pamela from Chez Nous. I've had to shut down my blog and start up a new one - this one's private and I'd love to send you an invitation to view it. I can't see how to e-mail you directly so please drop me an e-mail to we3camayas@yahoo.com and I'll send the invitation right out.

I love this picture and the quote is so true - the simple life with your family and books, what a wonderful, tranquil life!

Have a great weekend,
Pamela
