This is one of the times of the year when some activities are winding down and others are just beginning. Little league, swimming, and camps are ending so families can have time for vacation before school starts again. Maybe you are an “empty nester” where you are running to work on projects, taking care of grandchildren or just visiting friends. Whatever your situation is….it is a busy time of year.
Have you ever thought of putting together a very simple “quiet place” where you can sit and just relax? Maybe you just want to start reading a new book, a magazine, or write in a journal. My own “quiet place” is in what some people would think is a strange area..my laundry room! Naturally, my place has to have pillows (what a surprise!). Take a look at this pillow…I found this remnant at an antique sale. The bright colors make a great contrast with the neutral walls and dark brown of the bench.
