Here it is Wednesday.
While so many are scrambling in the midst of chaos,
so many more of us are carrying on with
normalcy and everyday things.
(Most of us are thinking of and praying
for the people whose
lives have been devastated by
the floods and then there are the others
that we know that have been visited by other
What a blessing everyday life can be.
Just to watch some little ones delight in the wonder
of their day. Finding many exciting adventures around every corner.
I remember this day.
We were out collecting eggs and Anayah
really wanted to hold a chicken.
Isn't it funny how kids don't think about what they can or can't do!
They just go after what they want.
My summer has been very busy...
It's been so fun to spend time with friends and family.
Outings and meals and even making new friends.
But it's been hectic at times
and not without heartaches.
And I find that within all of that,
I enjoy and find rest and contentment in
the quietness of keeping house, watering plants,
tending to my family and taking care of myself.
There are so many things
that I can think of that go in my
basket of gratitude.
Even very basic things.
so much beauty...
I know you're grateful, too.
What it is about little people and chickens?
They just go together like
And ham and eggs...
Thank you, Red, for your contribution to that :)
That chicken is so sweet to allow herself to be
sort of squeezed.
I have a huge trip coming up and I'm a little
panicky about it.
We're moving my daughter across the country to Ohio.
We are very close and I'm going to miss her ....
I'm not sure how that will be for me besides hard.
How is life treating you these days?
I hope that your summer has been wonderful and magical.
As well as productive and meaningful.
I've been working on few art projects.
I will share them.
I have figured out a little system
to my overwhelming photo gallery and so I
hope to be posting more.
I take WAY TOO MANY photos!!
My days are filled with music.
I'm working on new songs almost every day.
My gardens are doing pretty well.
Except our rains have stopped too soon and
I find myself wandering about with the hose.
And look who has been coming out with me?
Do you remember Sunny?
My bearded dragon.
I think I told you about him...
He's a foot long.
He has grown 8 inches since he came to be mine.
He's very sweet.
Well.. quiet and friendly.
He rides on my arm or shoulder,
eats out of my hand and
knows my voice.
He also runs around in the yard while I water.
I sometimes spray him with the hose.
He just closes his eyes and enjoys!
Life is beautiful
Full of magic
We live one minute at a time
and often times with a choice of how to look at
all that's going on in our hearts and beyond.
Wishing you peace and beauty in your days as lovely
fall or spring approaches!
Depending on where you live.
Thank you ever so much for coming by.
You are appreciated so much.
Show yourself lots of loving care and believe in
your dreams. There's only one you and
as Mr Magorium once said....
Your life is an occasion.
Rise to it.
Hugs and abundant blessings to you~
