The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. - James A. Michener

October Sun

Special thanks to my husband this week!

We had a really busy week.

And a very full weekend.

Topped off by a birthday celebration.

So, being the good man he is...

He volunteered to do this week's tablescape!

So, here's a toast.

To the good men in our lives!

Here are some views

From our backyard.
Makes it tough to come in for dinner.
Here is a water feature in our yard we enjoy.

A good man indeed. Mine probably wouldn't be setting the table, but he often is the one at the stove preparing our dinner. He did a grand job on the tablescape...your views are a truly magnificent blessing! Thank you for sharing his charming design. Cherry Kay

AWESOME table, Steve. A gracious host, great brother-in-law and now you can set a delightful table.

NOTE: He even made cookies to treat us on our arrival last weekend.

Kewl beans!
