This Is What Grounds Me

There are times when life is so busy....
full calendars...
days filled with activity...
long lists of chores...

What grounds me is this...

My friends keep my feet on the ground....

my heart beating steadily...

my blood pressure low...

They give me their undivided attention,
their warmth, their comfort, their affection.

And with this, life slows down again.
They always know exactly what I need.

It was a whirlwind weekend...
Saturday was filled with a craft fair in the quaintest of quaint small towns,
And Sunday, a bridal shower for Amanda.
My time with my friends was short, but sweet.
I will be making up for it throughout the coming week, however!

I did find a little extra time Sunday morning to bake these:

I have to tell you...their recipes are always the best,
with detailed instructions...
absolutely fool-proof!

Oh, so yummy!!


  1. Have never made pretzels. Yours sure look good.

  2. i could snuggle with those two all day! great looking pretzels!

  3. What sweet faces!! I have a bridal shower coming up as well. My son is getting married in June. We are in a whirlwind wedding planning mode, it's June 20th and a week of May we will be on vacation in Alabama so at least a week to relax with the soon to be married couple then back at it. Have a great week!

  4. I bet the family was glad you found some time to make those YUMMY ! Yes that's what my Miggs does for me keeps me sane ! Thanks for sharing lovely photos ! Have a good day !

  5. Loved your pictures with the sweet donkeys .....and oh boy, do those pretzels look delish! Wish I lived closer to you! :o)

  6. I agree one thousand percent! Sometimes I just go hang out with the donkey or the horses or the goats or the kunekune and I immediately feel my shoulders drop and my muscles unclench. They are absolutely the best medicine for what ails you.

  7. Mmmm, I can almost smell those wonderful pretzels!

    Sounds like a fun weekend. Sleeping well is very telling...

  8. You are a joy to know . . .
    and your animal family must feel that way too . . .
    Pretzels look mighty yummy!
