It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 9, Page 3, Book 11


The hearth is the center of the home. Have you ever noticed that when you have company over, you all end up in the kitchen? The kitchen is the heart of the house, the place where we are nurtured and heard. Conversations take place at the table over warm and comforting food. Hot tea, and the smells of home calm us after a long day. 

Food and family and friends are great ingredients for a celebration.  Our kitchen for this weekend is the one here at the campsite and it's outdoors.  It really doesn't matter where you gather it is the gathering, the being together, that counts.

 Our hearth is where our hearts are, so let’s make the most of it! Take some time to bake, light some candles, play music and spend time connecting to your family and friends.  

It's Labor Day Weekend in the USA, and most of us are celebrating the end of summer.
While I always hate to see it go, there is no stopping time and so we make the most of what each day brings as it comes.

Have a SUPER Saturday everyone!

I agree about hating to see summer end and about not being able to stop time. How cute your picture is, I am thinking it's your trailer and picnic table in front of it. Have a wonderful weekend.

Yes, the picture today is of our picnic table that sits in front of my camper.

Labour day weekend in Canada too. Not sure how we will celebrate, probably end up at the Farmer's Market, do some walking and just spending some quiet time reading. It got cold here last night so I'm thinking summer will soon be over here too. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs

I agree about the kitchen, the place to be and the heart of the home, but then it should be, that is where my mama was.
Have a great weekend. Love your table and umbrella, enjoy.
