Joy in the Ordinary

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

The weather has started to change.  I am not quite ready for summer to slip away and have been enjoying my blooms before they are gone. 

The cooler temperature have made it nice to have a cup of tea and some quiet time on the back porch.  

The trees are just starting to change.  I am hopeful for a wonderful display of color due to an abundance of rainfall this summer.  

A few autumn decorations have been put out and cooler weather items are starting to appear on the menu.  

A Sunday afternoon ice cream treat. 

Megan has been hunting like "Pa."  (with an old toy gun) Hum, are we reading too many Little House books?!  

"Look Mama, I am homeschooling my ducks!"  *smile*  

Life seems to be flying by at the moment.  I am trying to slow it down  (ha!) and savor the moments.  

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!


  1. You cannot read too many Little House books! They are wholesome and encourage a child to be thrifty and industrious!

    Enjoy these last summery days turning autumny days!

  2. share the same thoughts with you, I bring in my potted flowers and enjoyed them through the winter. They will go through a period of not blooming but will start up again.

    We love little house books also..great wholesome reads

    Enjoy your day.

  3. I love Little House books, I can never get enough :)

    Thank you for your kind words this morning on my blog, I appreciate them so very much :)


  4. I am trying to savor these last days of summer too! I hope to keep my geraniums going for a while. Wouldn't they be pretty at christmas time.
