Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

soaking in all the beauty.

possible style there is...devotion.

  1. Your seven things are wonderful! (my puppy sleeps wherever he wants too!) congrats on your award! Going over to check out the other two blogs you recommended...

  2. Hello Victoria!! I'm starting my day of catching up on blogs and started with yours and am surprised and touched by your thinking of me--THANK YOU!! :-)))) I've enjoyed your blog and reading your list--We have more than one of those things in common, except I love to meet friends for lunch, especially if they buy! :-))) THANKS again!!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. My wife and I babysit our great nephew who lives next door. His mom is a single parent who's in the final semester at school.
    Jordan is a delightful child and we have a large time here on our small farm.
    He's learning a lot of things about small animals, plants, gardens, and other stuff that most kids will never be exposed to. Keeping him for the past six months, has been a gift.
    We also have a small dog that sleeps on the foot of our bed.
    Have a great weekend.


Go on...make my day...
