I've been in love with simple crofts for years! I'm sure I could live in one, maybe-:) Dirt floors mean no vacuuming! That's a huge plus! There are more than just a few no's that I'd struggle living with though. Hm. I'm happy I was born in more modern times.
I drew "Mother And Child On a Windy Day" this morning while everyone was asleep...except for our five dogs. They are up and ready to go the second I wake up...the very second...or 7:00 am, whichever comes first. So I had five snuggle buddies with me. The more the merrier, and the more the hairier. (NEVER buy a velvet couch when you have pets. You'll be purchasing those sticky roller things to get rid of hair by the truck load) They're sure worth it though, the pets, not the rollers...although they are needed too:)
I hear cats are the same way...waking you up early that is. Our cats play in the rest of the house all night so they are not in the bedroom to wake me up.
I love mother-child images. The bond is certainly among the most powerful there are. Stephen King, King of Horror, said in a book he wrote, "There is no bitch alive like a mother in fear for her child." Except that I just went and checked I had the quote correct and apparently it's, "There's no bitch on earth like a mother frightened for her kids." I like my version better, Stephen. (WINK) I love Stephan King though. He's brilliant!
Okay, I'd better get back to the laundry, then onto mowing the lawn.
Have a great day!
