Joy in the Ordinary

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

I am feeling much better.  I still have to be careful to not over do it as I still become tired easily.  I'm so thankful!

After being sick for such a long time this is what the refrigerator was looking like.  
 Time to make a grocery run!
 The above is from stop number one.  Over a few days I hit four stores.  Have to make my grocery budget stretch!

I received happy mail.  These towels are super cute.
Thanks Kathy!  Your kindness certainly perked me up. 

An afternoon snack of warm cookies and cold milk.  Someone couldn't wait for me to take a picture before she dug in. *smile*
 I felt like I was always wearing my hair up in a bun and wanted a change.  I chopped it off into an angled bob. 
 So far our winter has been mild.  Old Man Winter let us know he isn't done with some ice.  It's not fun yet it is beautiful.  Especially when the sun is reflecting off of the ice. 
 Watching the impeachment vote because U.S. Government in action is so much better than a book. 
 The organization of my kitchen cabinets continues.  It's slow going, but I'm getting it done
There's something about clean dishes on the counter that is appealing to me.  It seems cozy and homey. 
 Megan spends much of her time in the garage.  It's her creative outlet.  I'll show you next week what is busy creating. 
Wishing you all a great week!


  1. I am glad you are feeling better.
    And I know that empty fridge feeling!
    It is sometimes nice to have a fresh start!
    Your hair looks lovely!
    I have done the same thing.
    Have a great day!

  2. I love the new haircut! I’m happy you are feeling better and being productive. I need to do some kitchen organization. I’ve acquired a few new gadgets and need to find a home for them in the cabinets.

  3. I’m glad you’re getting stronger. I chuckled at your empty fridge.
    I’ve been shopping at multiple stores too to stretch those grocery dollars, when my cranky knee allows

  4. Nice hair. It is beautiful.

  5. I love your haircut!

  6. So glad you are feeling better. Excited to see Megan's project. God bless.

  7. Glad you are feeling better! I love the quote you shared. There really is so much to be thankful for all around us. I'm about ready to chop my hair off too. I let it grow out in the winter and once spring hits I'm ready for a change.

  8. Being sick is no fun! Here's to better days!! Glad you had enough energy to get some food back in the house. I am ready for spring!!
