Our house is quiet today

I know it has been a bit quiet around here this week. My husband left for California today. So I have been preparing for that. You would think by now I would be used to it. But I always feel a sense of loss for a couple of days before I get on just fine.

No one to argue over the remote with, no one to make homemade ice cream for, no one to use the last of the milk, no one to leave his toothbrush in the shower. No one to help keep those struggling little basil plants alive.

Just the herbs and me. So while I wait for the return of my favourite arms. I will keep busy listing some new Estate sale boxes and I also have some new photo prints to add to the shop very soon.

Friday at last so I will wish you all a magnificent weekend and better get ready for work.

surround yourself with little comforts while you are missing your beloved. Have a good weekend.

Stopping by to wish you a nice weekend!

Strange how much (and quickly)
we miss the everydaysituations and sometimes also the "irritating" ones when they are not there...I feel truly blessed to be so fortunate that i have arms to miss when they are gone for a little while. Better to miss than not having anybody to miss....

Here in Norway the last three weeks have been rainy and gray but today the sun is here- JOY :)

Thanking for all the inspiration you share, i always feel inspired when i have visited..

Ah that is sweet that you feel his absence - I bet he misses you too! I think you need a cat perhaps though...or a dog or goldfish...xxx

I love the new header!

And of course, your photos in the post are beautiful!

Here's to a weekend of happy solitude.

Isn't it such a blessing to have someone to miss so very much? Happy weekend.

Sometimes a quiet house is just what we need, but not when we're missing someone so much! I know just what you mean about the first day or so being sad, and then you get used to it and are even a little excited for some alone time!

My husband left today. I haven't been alone in the empty house yet but I'm not looking forward to it.

I understand completely :0) It's a bittersweet feeling but I always end up feeling lucky that I have someone to miss that much.

Your imagery is so, so quiet and still. I'm just going to imagine (don't tell me otherwise!) that there wasn't any music playing and the floor was cool underfoot.
