Joy in the Ordinary

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

I've only used the clothes line once this season.  Seasonal allergies have been horrible this year.  My poor Megan happens to suffer from them.  I hope to be back to using the line soon.  I love the smell of lines dried items.
I find beauty in all of God's creations. 
Yes, even beauty in what most perceive as weeds. Those yellow "weeds" turn into fields of wishes. 
 Megan loves to fish and found a new fishin' spot.  We've been several times. 
On her first trip she caught a large mouth bass.  It shocked us both!
Chuck and I celebrated our 18th Anniversary. 
 I spent a dry, sunny afternoon relaxing on my parents front porch.  We chatted and enjoyed the nice day.  It was so pleasant that it was hard to get up and leave.
Our school year has wrapped up and the new books for 8th grade are here.  I'm working on planning for next year.  My goal is to have it done before the first of July or sooner.  That way the planning won't be hanging over my head and we can enjoy every drop of summer.
Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations... keep moving forward, friends.


  1. I love line dried clothes. I think they smell so wonderful.

  2. I check back every few days to see if you are here. Glad you are back! Sounds like you are feeling better. Take care and enjoy summer.

  3. Your blog brought me joy today. The picture of Meghan with her big bass brought joy to me, not just from seeing her excitement about it, but it also brought fun memories of fishing back to me. I don't know if my fishing days are over or not, but until I can get my knees healed up, (I'm having my second worst knee replaced in July, the first worst as done last year and is pretty much healed), I am not able to do things that I always enjoyed like fishing and working in my flower gardens and dancing. Your fishing spot looks great. It looks like an early morning photograph of your fishing spot. The fog is just rising. Makes me want to go fishing so bad, and take my 9 year old grandson with me. He's never fished yet.

    I always look forward to, and enjoy your posts.

    It was good to see your post today.

  4. I love line dried clothes too. That's a big fish!!!

  5. Happy summer, Wendi.
    Isn't homeschooling the best?
    I love wrapping up and looking ahead to next year.
    And I share your appreciation for those beautiful flowers, that others refer to as weeds. Have a cozy evening!

  6. I love the smell of sheets that have been kissed by the sun, I also enjoy porch sitting, and try to do this every day.
    Enjoy your summer break from homeschooling and as you plan for the next school year.
    Wishing you and your family a most blessed and happy Memorial Day weekend.

  7. Congratulations on 18 years!

  8. How beautifully you describe the life home otherwise people prefer the life of outside home.
    God bless you. May you live happily ever.
