                         Happy little daisies, that’s what these flowers are.  They always bring a smile to my face and warmth to my heart. 

May you find something today that brings you a little grin.  Because that is where the hope begins.

Afternoon delights

Enjoying all my afternoon delights.  Receiving flowers from boys is always nice :o)  Summer snow dancing on the wind. Scouting out all salmon berries to be found.  Walks in the woods.  And watching the littlest one dig for buried treasures by the shore of a rushing river.  So much enjoyment.

Now go and find some afternoon delights of your own…it will be worth it.

Birds on The Wires





 I am aware that there are many moments in each day when there is a song
playing.  Sometimes it’s In the songs birds sing, or the sound of children
laughing, or even the sound of the city in all it’s hustle and bustle…but this
artist takes it to a whole new level.  Take a look at how a song is made from
the way these birds are sitting on a wire.




                



Now go and find some music of your own.

With the beautiful weather as of late, we have been taking more and more outings. 

It is so nice to pack up a lunch and hit the road.  We live in a beautiful area with many parks and trails

to spend days like these.  I find myself planning the next trip on the eve of visiting each one.  May there be many more to

follow in the future.

 

Enjoy your outings friends.

Every year in the spring, the fields in our area are blanketed with multi-colored tulips.  They bloom in various colors and look like miles and miles of patchwork quilts.  It is quite lovely- to say the least.  We took the time this year to walk through the main farm stands.  For a few short weekends, as the fields bloom all around, they open up a small plot of gardens to the public.  This has always been a tourist attraction but it has exploded in the last few years. Unfortunately, the tulip season is a short one.  In a few short weeks all these fields will be harvested and sold.  It goes by far too quickly. The tulip season is a beautiful reminder of how lovely farming life can be…even if it is only for a few weekends a year.

The almost…

I received some tickets to one of my favorite plays in the WHOLE world…Les Miserables.  Only this was no ordinary showing…I actually tried out for this play at the community theater in our area.  I had only tried out for community theater one time before and that was when I was a child.

I actually got a call back, but after seeing the massive schedule and knowing the commute was pretty far, I decided not to take the roll as one of the street walkers (ahem.)  I was very thankful for the opportunity.  The audition was super exciting.  As I sat and watched the performance I did notice that the play took on a pretty raunchy tone…I am  ok with the decision I made.  It was a lovely night regardless and as it turned out, one of the “working girls” who did take the role was a friend of my niece and a pleasure to watch.

Needless to say…sometimes trying out is just as fun.  One never knows unless they try.  Every once and a while it’s nice to try something you always wanted to do just to cross it off the list :o)

So friends…what have you always wanted to do…but haven’t had the nerve to try it?
