Getting Close at Home

“The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” – Maya Angelou

My home is small but that is not a good word to describe it… so maybe I will just say that it is cozy… and I won’t have it any other way.

Today for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge and for guest host Brian … the topic is Close at Home

Let me start off with photos from my kitchen, which is really for me, the heart of my home. A day won’t be complete without a home cooked meal or sometimes when my hubby gets lucky…home baked empanada with coffee.

Some colourful items in my kitchen.

Then off to my garden, where I often stay when the weather is not too cold or too wet.

Here are some of my fridge magnet collections from my travels.

Some framed travel photos and my artworks.

Most importantly on my hallway, I have my collection of photographs of my kids and their achievements.

So this is my life … my day … my memories … my family … my home!

      Thanks so much Marsha…but that is me…I love colour!

        I do too. I can’t get enough of it in my pictures. The more color, the better digital jigsaw puzzles they make.
