Joy in the Ordinary

Look around, really look around and you will find joy... joy in the everyday... joy in the ordinary things.

When you are an only child you sometimes have to improvise when you need a card partner. 
A yummy dinner. I'm sure the soup, chicken salad and chicken pot pie will be just a delicious. 
Megan made a birdhouse years ago. It has sat on the potting bench as decor until this year. A Chickadee mama and her three eggs have taken up residence.
We think the eggs might have hatched. Chuck will use his inspection camera to check it out soon. 

Trying out her birthday scooter. 
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at a cafe boatyard. 
The food was great and view even better. 
This little guy landed on the front door and stuck around for quite a while. 
Yum... because cupcakes... who doesn't love a cupcake?
Me and my girl. 
Oh, how I love my flowers. They bring me a bunch of joy. 
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
