I suppose that’s what happens when you blog everyday, occasionally you have to show the crazy side of yourself.  That way you know that I am really normal. (smile) okay so here it goes….                                    pssst! word on the street is that there’s a mystery girl in town! she prowls the candy isles in the pursuit for the perfect sweet!

JuSt FoR ToDay….♡

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Happy Wednesday! I’ve got a fun day planned. I’m meeting a friend for lunch.  I sometimes think that I have way too much fun. I sure hope you do too! Life’s a balance. Don’t you agree… I mean honestly, I don’t play all the time. And, I am pretty sure you gentle reader don’t either (grin)  Although, these days, my goal is to enjoy whatever it is I’m doing. Even when I’m working. Correction. .. especially  while I’m “working”…. I woke up super early today, so that I could do everything I needed to do before my lunch date. First, I took a look around our garden to check that the trees were getting enough watering. It is suppose to be very warm here in Southern California. Guess what … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ How was your Monday? I hope that it was the most exciting Monday ever! OK…I have to fess up. …I played all day yesterday. Played as in, I had a totally pampered day. A mani/pedi spa day. Lunch with friends.  And, I even did a little shopping. I found the cutest dress, for Cami. I haven’t bought her anything for a day or two a while. I just can’t resist. Well, anyway I had this great day. My husband was on a one day mountain retreat, so I was free!  I would like to tell you that with all the fun things I did, oddly …I couldn’t help stop thinking  about this man we finally met. We have been seeing him for about 7 months now. I … Continue reading

ThE ClOtHeSlINe WhIsPeReR…♡

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Happy Monday! How was your weekend….hope it was beyond wonderful! There’s a clothesline on the outside of our cottage.  It is on the side deck. I love it.  We put it up years ago, when we first moved here. Of course, it wasn’t used for drying clothes.  I sort of used it for decorating. Of course. However, over the years, I’ve become very fond of it…in an old fashiony kind of way. My Grandmother (nana) dried all her clothes on the line, and some of my fondest childhood memoies are “helping” her hang out and take in the wonderful smelling clothes. I have the same wonderful memories of watching her iron. (better get out the ironing board) It brings back the memory of simple things in life, … Continue reading

ThE TiMe To Be HaPpy Is NoW….♡

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Happy Saturday! I am hoping you have something fun, and special planned for today. Because. ….you deserve it! I Had a wonderful week…. I did a little fixing, gardening,  creating, organizing, arranging, and conquering! And, I would bet that you most likely did a little of each, this past week too. So, take today and be kind to yourself. As I look back on this week’s posts, I see kindness is so important. And,  sometimes, we forget to include ourselves  in the kindness act equation. Some of the kindest people I know, are also very kind to themselves.  So, what kind things are you doing for yourself this weekend? Perhaps, you already have planned on some alone time, to just listen to your own thoughts. Maybe, you … Continue reading
