Joy in the Ordinary

Look around, really look around and you will find joy... joy in the everyday... joy in the ordinary things.
 I have been enjoying what I call hot tea/sweet tea weather. I love the cool mornings and warm afternoons. This is my favorite type of weather.
 I keep telling Chuck it won't be much longer before his girl is to big for piggy back rides. Her legs will drag the ground before long!
 I know that this time of playing is fleeting. I will enjoy every moment of it while it last. Although Chuck's dad says then you have grandkids and get to play once more!
 As you can tell he is certainly a big kid at heart. :)

 Monday was a rough morning drive!
 I keep hearing there is an old wives tale that the number of morning fog predicts the number of snowfalls. If that is true it looks like we might have a white winter! There have been several foggy mornings this summer.
 A favorite snack.
I only indulge in these once a year from the apple orchard. That is definately a good thing!

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!


  1. A delightful post Wendy... the simple joys of everyday life are the best! And how sweet that piggyback rides are still in fashion... so fun to see a girl and her dad playing together. She is growing up so fast, as all children do! I enjoy the cooler mornings, and warm days too, a perfect combination. May the Lord bless your day today in a sweet way :)

  2. I had never heard that old wives tale. How neat if it proves to be true. :)

  3. The joys in the every days is the best things to look forward to! For everything just moves too quickly, taking the time to enjoy and soak it all a must!
    It looks as though you have been getting a lot done this Fall and that is always a plus, because winter time brings a different kind of busy!
    Have a wonderful weekend, Wendi!
    Hugs, Amy

  4. Around here we say the number of fogs in August determines the snows. I did mark our fogs down on the calendar and I am interested to see if it proves true. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  5. Lovely post.
    Can't say we've had many (or any) foggy mornings here yet, but
    I know they're coming!

  6. I've never heard that about fog... but now you have me counting. : ) I love how you embrace life's simple moments! happy fall.

  7. Just this morning, I sat down to take a little break from getting ready for my yard sale next week. Soft music from Pandora was playing. I was knitting a few stitches. I felt the cool breeze from the ceiling fan. I was AWARE and enjoying the moment. I need to do that more!
    Be blessed.
    Loved this post!
