“I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family, and a few old friends dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give.”
Thomas Jefferson, letter of February 1788
I was thinking about this quote yesterday while I was working inside. It was a beautiful day, I couldn’t work outside because I was busy finished up another batch of maple syrup. That didn’t stop me from enjoying being indoors. I love our little house, it’s perfect. After living here for 9 years it’s finally feeling like home.
My living room is one of my favorite rooms on a bright winter day. The walls are light green, they reflect the light beautifully. The curtains are white and let the light through the large windows. The sofa and chairs are comfy, perfect for reading.
