The Quiet Guest Room

I stood in the entrance way to the carefully decorated spare room. My grandmother, busied herself inside cleaning the room as if someone had been in it. I smiled watching her clear a bit of dust off the wall hangings, light the small candles, and freshen the flowers. I watched on as she carefully laid fresh linens on the bed and fluff the pillows. I knew though that no one had slept in the guest room since I was younger. The room remained quiet in hopes that one day someone would come bounding in and ask my grandmother about the toys that filled the room, and why the hippo was upon the wall. I watched as my grandmother set to work on the quiet guest room humming to herself. Ever so often a smile would creep on her small mouth and she would ask how long it had been since I last spent the night; she knew thought that I was just there for a visit today, it had been this way since my own children had been born. Yet she remained hopeful that I would change my mind one of these visits.

The Country Wedding

Nestled outside the ancient building the bride stood watch as the decorators busied themselves with decorating and setup the location. Taking a long slow breath she began to smile as her vision came to life. Most would be bothered by the occasional verbalization from the sleeping dog or from by the gathering chicks as the grass was rustled causing the little seeds to fall to the ground. She enjoyed the country side; she found it soothing and relaxing and the animals that roamed the land made her smile. Eventually she felt someone take her hand and she gave it a squeeze and flashed her fiance a smile, tomorrow they would be married and a new journey would begin.

Relaxation is in the Art

Paint could be smelt drifting down the small narrow hallway, letting the others know that something was taking place in the small room at the back of the house. Usually you could hear the whirl of the sewing machine as a new vision came to life. Today though, the medium was paint and the inspiration was the view out the small window in the ceiling as the clouds drifted lazily in the sky. Those who snuck a peak from time to time, could hear the slowly sigh as the individual relaxed within the art room.

Early Morning Baking

early-morning-baking

The sun had filled the little gully with the first rays of morning, filling the kitchen with a warm natural glow. My mother tiptoed down the stairs in her nightgown, just as she did every morning. Try as she might, the pots still clattered, and the old drawer still banged shut. Several minutes passed and before long, the sweet aroma of muffins would fill the air. My sister and I would yawn and stretch and slowly climb out of bed to see which flavours were made that day for breakfast.
