Joy in the Ordinary

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

A sure sign that Spring is coming is daffodils pushing through the ground and seed packets in the stores. 
We've enjoyed a few warmer days.  Being able to go outside makes Megan very happy. 
One afternoon we had record breaking temperatures.  I love having all of the windows open. 
A treat from a favorite bakery. 
A rainy Saturday was spent working in Megan's closet.  
Everything was taken out and Chuck helped me move shelving.  Megan has grown so much that her skirts and dresses hit the lower shelf while hanging.  You can't see it but the middle shelf was cut behing the door so that the skirts can hang free from the top shelf.  

I love it!  Things were purged and sorted.  Megan struggled a little as she said she didn't like making hard decisions to let things go.  I pulled out summer clothing.  I sorted things to have play clothing on the bottom and nicer/church clothing on the top.  I've been buying clothing for our beach vacation and this will prevent them from becoming stained before our trip. 
A breakfast love note. *smile*
I love having fresh flowers on my kitchen table.  
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!

    Those cupcakes look delicious!

  4. Lovely post today, Wendi!
    Organizing closets is one of my favorite things this time of year!
    Now though, we are emptying them out!!!!
    Have a beautiful day. : )

    1. I love all the signs of spring...we have daffodils blooming here. I just cleaned out our shed and I took everything off to the goodwill today. I am sure I will find more as we keep purging before we start our spring cleaning. Have a great day.

  7. Great job on the closet redo and organizing. I'm with Megan, it's hard to let things go but we must. ;)

  8. I'm enjoying the journey also!!
    Yes, Spring is just around the corner and that makes me happy!
    We've had a few warmer than normal temps here too. So the windows have been opened as long as that wind stays away!!
    Closet cleaning isn't much fun, but it is a task that has to be done. I'm glad I worked on mine during the cold winter months...I'd rather be outside!

    Enjoy the warmth and have a great weekend!!

    Hugs, Amy

  9. OH! How wonderful the joys you've found are. Enjoy my dear! That closet looks amazing. I finished radiation today. I'm tired, and sore, but energized with excitement over being done!
