Joy in the Ordinary

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

A family gathering to celebrate Grandma's birthday.
Celebrating Chuck's birthday with his dad, stepmom, niece and nephew. We had lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory.  Yum. 
After lunch we walked to the center of the city. We enjoyed visiting the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. 
There is a circular street and sidewalk paved with brick around the monument.  The sidewalk has brinks engraved with the names and dates of fallen soldiers. 
We have plans to make several trips to enjoy the history of our state and city this summer.

After several days out and about it was nice to be home.

I tackled chores early so I could get outside.  This is my view when I head out to read after dinner.
 I find joy in my flowers.
We've had some mild, dry weather and I'm trying to make the most of it. 

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations... keep moving forward, friends.


  1. Looks like a fun day to celebrate Chuck! We need to make a trip to your city to explore it, too. Haven't been there in a couple of years. Love your laundry room! Have a good day!

  2. Happy birthday Chuck and I also find joy in my flowers. I love that you remind me to enjoy simple things.

  3. Beautiful patio and flowers! It's always fun to get away but there's nothing like coming home again!

  4. Do you need a loan to pay rent/pay bills,start a business or fund a project? You can contact this loan finance where me and my partner got our loan from (Steven Ryan Loan Finance)
