After toying with the idea of what to share here... today, I went outdoors to "play around" with my camera. It wasn't long before I found a few things to make me smile...relax... and savor!
I'm all into patterns and intricacy right now, and I think I found me some.
|This guy just plain, down and out, made me smile!|
It doesn't take much, to make me warm up, does it? A few seconds after stepping indoors... the mail came. Another love of mine...snail mail...with hopes of something "personal" and not junk... So, out I went again. And, there, in the mailbox... lo and behold, a card of cheer which really perked me up.. thank you- sweet friend! All the way from KY.
Bevy- Just a quick note to say "hello" in hopes that these beautiful colors would brighten your day. We only have a few more weeks of "winter" and Spring colors will be sprouting up for sure. Hope all is good your way... take care. xo
How did my friend know I needed this today?
It nourished me!
So. The book, in the background, of that last photo there, is a recent winnings from a giveaway I had entered! The book is entitled: Nourished! So far, its been a fabulous read and I feel so blessed to have been the winner.... surprised - as all get out, too! I'm thoroughly enjoying this book! It's got some great quotes, tucked in here and there which really bless. And, you all know how much I love me some quotes. :)
Like this one:
As much as we need to go out into the world to explore, we are that much braver and confident when we know that we have a place of sanctuary that will welcome us back from the adventure...
Creating a nurturing, nourishing home is a process that is always unfolding in its own perfect way. ~ Leah Kent
Usually, when the distraction of daily life deplete our energy, the first thing we eliminate is the thing we need the most: quiet, reflective time. Time to dream, time to contemplate what's working and what's not, so that we can make changes for the better. ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
Just a little something my soul needed on a day like today. Nourishment.
I think it happened. :)
** We're hunkering down for another storm system, to come through, this afternoon and evening!! And, Lord willing, a Hot and Nourishing meal will be served up, just fine, tonight!!
