Morning Conversation

As Earl and I sat on the sofa this morning drinking coffee...
Me: "You have to take Vicky to work (yay she got a summer job!)about the same time you usually make me breakfast."
Earl: "Uh huh"
Me: "Maybe I could have breakfast a little early this morning"
Followed by uproarious laughter from both of us. lol. I really am terribly spoiled, and there are perks to having him home. Gee, I'm going to miss him when he finds work:>) We are doing ok. God is providing. I have faith that things will pick up. In the meantime, he makes my breakfast before work and we have morning coffee. Might as well enjoy the sunshine together:>) (Breakfast was delicious!)


  1. Hi Sweet Kathy!
    Earl is such an adorable sweetie pie!!! He reminds me of my Chad :) Arent we lucky to have such wonderful hubbies? I am so glad you are doing well!! I have been thinking about you and hoping :)

    LOVE the wicker couch!! You are so lucky, I want one.I love the pretty cushions!!


  2. How sweet Kathy! I would say that you are quite blessed :) MY honey likes to cook for me on weekends :)

    The wicker bench with fluffy cushions and pillows looks so inviting :)

    Have a wonderful day and thanks for putting a smile on my face :)


  3. How sweet! That reminds me of my Stevie. He makes my coffee every morning before he goes to work. He goes in earlier than I do. He brings it to me, singing the song "Good Morning ,Beautiful". Isn't that sweet? I think that I have that song on my playlist on my blog.

    I love your wicker couch and cushions. Very pretty.

  4. And through it all, you continually create beautiful, artistic and interesting posts for all of us to visit. Truly, I do enjoy every visit I make to this blog. Thank you!!

  5. I loved listening in on this sweet conversation. A little snippet of your life. Earl is a sweet man, isn't he? You guys have a good life.

    I am fortunate too, that my sweet hubbie makes me coffee every morning. He sets out my dishes, silverware and napkin, slices my bread for toasting. He is a morning person, I am works wonderfully.

  6. My hubby is the designated coffee brewer each morning. Only he can make good coffee...I don't like mine at all! It's great waking up to the smell of coffee!


  7. I'm going to have to work on sounding less inarticulate, I suppose...glad you liked breakfast!


  8. Good morning -
    I'm so glad you can see the blessings in the unplanned times. Your hubby sounds so like my sweetheart. Treasure every moment like this because soon life will take off again in another direction and you will look back on days like today with a smile on your face - and in your heart!

  9. Does Earl have a single brother????

    Count your blessings!

  10. Oh Kathy, you are so funny. I'm glad you both are able to keep up the good attitude. Hope things turn around soon.

  11. Oh, Kathy girl....your uplifing personality has made this time in a low valley one that you and Earl have learned from. I love your attitude and I know Earl loves it, too. God loves it too....and He has done the usual magnificent job of taking care of his children!

    Cracking up over Earl thinking he has to work on being articulate. Good one!

    Do you think Clarence will make me breakfast every morning if/when he's out of work? Hmmm, I'll have to make sure he reads this. ;-)

  17. I love visiting your blog, but am not very good about commenting. Love this photo and your story. My DH makes the coffee every morning, even though he doesn't drink it.

    I hope your situation improves. Your attitude is such a blessing to those of us who come over here and visit.

  18. Yes, we're both spoiled, spoiled, spoiled. Isn't is scrumptious?!!! I LOVE having Steve home. He's working now but working from home. We're able to continue French Cupboard and we tag team all day with the kids and their school work.

    I'm praying with you for work and rejoicing with you at the luxury of having your husband home!

    Have a lovely Thursday. Blessings... Polly

  35. You think like I do ;-) My hubby has been cooking his breakfast since he's been working from home the past few years. He cooks for me when I want the same breakfast, or I fix my own. We are comfortable with the routine we have fallen into. I'm glad to know you are doing OK. I think of you often and hope the economy will improve. You are handling things with beautiful grace.


Thank you for taking the time to say hello :)
