Joy in the Ordinary

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

The beginning of week we were still experiencing unseasonably warm days.  We were able to rake some leaves away from the fence line and then Chuck pulled out the mower to cut them up.  Speaking of the mower.... we were able to replace our rider with a used mower for $200! We had anticipated paying upwards of $1000 or more in the Spring. A blessing indeed!
I am still working on the room remodel project.  I sprayed the gold rod black.  If I'm doing things such as curtains then you know we are getting close to finished.  Can you feel the excitement?!
Megan decided she needed a kitchen to play with.  It's been years since she has had a toy kitchen so she got inventive.  Cardboard boxes, thin cardboard sheets and a glue gun was all she needed.  I must say I was impressed with her sauce pan! That goes to show that when there is the will you will find a way. 
Each morning, courtesy of my early rising husband, I walk into the living room with the tree glowing.  It gives my day a warm and cozy start. 
The cards have been mailed. 
Cookie baking has begun.  
These are tucked away in the freezer waiting for our annual cookie day with my mom, sister and nieces.  
It's time for me to get with it! I have a slight headache this morning (weather induced as it has turned cold and snow is coming in for the weekend) so I need to take something for it and get ready for the day.  The lazy morning has been nice but there are plenty of things to be done.  Have a great weekend!

May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
