Joy in the Ordinary

Look around, really look around and you will find joy... joy in the everyday... joy in the ordinary things.
A bowl of "sunshine."
A light dusting of snow.
Window open on a day of unexpected warmth.
My crafty girl. :)
Creative time for me.
Freshly laundered blankets.
Celebrating my Mom's birthday.

Practice time.

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!


  1. Love your little gifts you've found during your week! I also got to enjoy some very mild, "warm" weather earlier this week which is very rare for PA in January! But it was so nice to be able to open our French doors a bit and let the fresh air fill the house! Have a great weekend!

  2. Love that you can see the beauty around you and I long to open a window and air out the house. It's still too cold for that however. Have a nice weekend.

  3. I love your pictures! They do bring me joy. Thanks for sharing and God bless.

    I'm also from Pa and it was so nice to have the patio door open earlier this week. We awoke to some snow this morning so it would seem your weather has made its way over here. :-)

  5. we have had both warm and cold days this week too.

    your daughter is getting so big, I think she was a preschooler when I started reading your blog.

    I like your pictures too- I like knowing someone else out there is content at home. Seems most everyone I know "for real" is never at home.

  6. Much goodness in the ordinary. And I delight, but try not to take for granted, in the ability to be home to witness it.
    I've been on a pink grapefruit kick, but Aldi didn't have them this week. So I will subsitute navel oranges.

  7. Love it :) I took love looking around me and enjoying the simple things that make me smile.
