Living Simply












There are times when I want it all.
I enjoy the abundance of everything: people, places, things.
Until I become totally fatigue of it all.
And all I can think of is escaping. 
If I could just take my daughter and dog with me.

But I can't. 
At the moment, I am doing all I can to close my eyes 
and try not to see nor hear of all the unnecessary. 
Too much of everything. 
Too many people. Too many words. 

These photos I had reblogged in my Tumblr gave me comfort. 
The simple life.
One day. 
I will love it.
Until something else. Again.





Peaceful weekend,

Bette .

Lovely Lake House

 

Looks like a lovely family and a lovely place.
Laid back and lazy summer days. I'd go! 
I'd stay!

Relax Inside a Calming Ohio Lake House
 
Grandparents, uncles, nieces, nephews: Everybody's welcome at the Ohio lake house 
Julie DeVito Butler and her husband, Michael, bought seven years ago. 
And—surprise!—the stunning, neutral interiors handle all three generations 
(plus an English mastiff) with ease.

Three ♥ Things

  




 I have used this saying as an ancient Chinese wisdom - however, I have no idea who said it first.  
I love it. And I so agree with it. It goes something like this: 

There are three things which you never get tired of watching: 
 sleeping child, 
flowing water 
and 
burning fire.

If I could see them all every day, I am sure all the worries would seem so small.

ps. my baby is all grown now, so I am dreaming of having another baby, puppy that is.

Sylvia On My Mind


The past few days I have been digging into the life of Sylvia Plath again. More and more.




“I am still so naïve; I know pretty much what I like and dislike; 
but please, don’t ask me who I am. A passionate, fragmentary girl, maybe?”

“Life has been some combination of fairy-tale coincidence 
and joie de vivre and shocks of beauty 
together with some hurtful self-questioning.”

“I like people too much or not at all. 
I've got to go down deep, to fall into people, to really know them.”

Nice Nantucket Cottage












This time of the year I find myself looking at all the magazines and blogs on anything to do with sea. 
This is what I just saw, and liked :
