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 world...to 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

Don't Care

I'm going outside today...

I don't care how much the rain pours...

I don't care how hard Sandy blows...


I've got my brolly and my boots...


I've been inside for two whole days...

and it's driving me batty!

    1. Couldn't agree more Catherine...just don't want to run into anyone I know though - not a pretty sight!

  2. Cabin fever, right? ;-) Enjoy being outside. No matter what the weather is doing, sometimes it's just what we need. xo

    1. It makes me jittery and bad-tempered MP. For everyone's sake I needed to get out!

  3. I did just that about three days ago. Wellies on, raincoat on, and brolly up. I really enjoyed it.

    1. Wellies, raincoat - but the brolly was a bit of a lost cause. We are getting the edges of Sandy here. So hood up and off I went - felt marvelous!

  4. Pennsylvania is in sort of a lockdown. No driving and if you walk outside in a few hours, you take the chance of being blown away. No taking chances here.

    1. I hear you Sock'em...you are feeling it full on there. Here - not so much, although since getting back the winds are really picking up. We are supposed to feel the true brunt of it tonight and with all the rain we've been having up until now making the earth soft, you know we are going to have trees down.
      Stay safe.

  5. Venturing into the storm is sometimes what we need to feel our own strength. Be safe and enjoy the roar of Mother Nature.
    That hot cup of soup or tea will be even more delightful when you come back in to watch from the window.

    1. Call me crazy Katherine, but I just love the wind. Today really wasn't very cold, so it was easy just to breath into it.
      Pot of leek, bacon and potato soup on the stove as we speak.

  6. There is nothing like splashing in puddles in the rain. I am still a big kid at heart.

    1. Me to SH - that's why my wellies are my absolute favourite boots. Have to say though - wet leaves can be a bit treacherous!

    1. It was wonderful Linda . Sandy blasted through here last night, but today is just a little windy and the rain has stopped. Looks like I can get out again today - hurrah!

  8. We've had super heavy rain all day out here on the W.Coast...supposed to be the same again tomorrow and the next day...yikes...cabin fever will be rampant! I guess it's time to get that gym membership! Hope the good weather lasts for you J.

  9. Yesterday, post Sandy, was lovely. It was if the earth was exhausted and just sat still for a bit. The air was warm with only intermittent gusts of wind. Sandy sure made a mess here, branches down and almost all the leaves off the trees now. I'm heading north to Caledon today, (taking my camera!), will let you know what things look like up there.
    No gym membership for me (too many sweaty bodies coughing and sneezing)...I'd rather bundle up and just go outside!

  11. Looks like you had a nice outdoor excursion, and I'm so glad Sandy didn't mess around with you too much. the 'earth being exhausted' was a brilliant way to describe the aftermath...what an energy draining ordeal for all...including mother nature!
    xo J~
