SIMPLE SUNDAYS....Serenity and Simplicity




\

A scene from a Christmas-y mantle on a January day at Burritt's on the Mountain, Huntsville, Alabama.



They lived so simply then, what's to make us think we've got it rough now?

Even with a "recession" we're living so much better and we should remember that and be slow to complain. They were some of the happiest people, just glad for the freedom to be what they wanted or could be, and happy to have the potential to be more in this great land. The simple ones were those who made it possible for us to live as we do; they paid with blood, sweat, tears and a lot of times: their lives.

Very pretty picture and I think simple living is the best. I haven't heard of the Burret place, but my SIL works in Huntsville as a nurse. My inlaw family live about 30 miles from there. I'll have to ask if they have ever been.

I have having a simple Sunday myself. Everyone is napping, pizza in the oven, race on in a few hours..it's 19 but the sun is shining on me thru my window.

Even though have gone out of my way to create a simple life I do long for a simpler one.
