Don't Overlook Life's Small Joys

Watch the sunrise at least once a year, put a lot of marshmallows in your hot chocolate, lie on your back and look at the stars, never buy a coffee table you can't put your feet on, never pass up a chance to jump on a trampoline, don't overlook life's small joys while searching for the big ones.

Winter Loves

As the woods are the same, the trees standing in their places, the rocks and the earth... they are always different too, as lights and shadows and seasons and moods pass through them. 
~ Emily Carr


Skywatch Friday 02-22-08

This was taken on a Sunday morning in December...right after an Ice Storm.
It's hard to tell....but all of those trees are coated with ice.
It was a beautiful "Day After".

We had a new ice storm forecast for last night...BUT
It missed us. Yippee!

This was NOT taken on the same day...but I liked how there is a

bottom set of clouds....and a top set of clouds :)

Have a Happy Friday Everyone!!
And a GREAT Weekend!!


E is for ....

An EAGER tufted titmouse....Ready to EAT

An EMPTY squirrel's nest.........

OK...maybe not so EMPTY
"light, airy, or tenuous
extremely delicate or refined"



Bend when you must. Pull when you must. Both are an offering. When you bend, be at peace; when you pull, do so gently.

Live true your passions, 
Keep still your mind.
