My Day is Made...

16d6691b07fd2102d543e5db931bdcf7
How nice to open my e-mail this morning to find that Marie Otero awarded me the You Make My Day Award!  Thank you so much, Marie!  In return, I am to give this award to others in a pay if forward kind of way.  I have read that it is to be sent to five people and I have also read that it is to be sent to ten people.  I decided to go with six, but I could have done so many more!

Here’s how the “You Make My Day” award works:

1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day.
2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver.
3. Display the "You Make my Day Award" logo with a link to the post that I wrote. (Optional)
4. Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news.

Have a blessed day!

Would You...

Would you notice something beautiful if you heard it? Or saw it?  Would you stop to look or listen?  Would you be too busy?  Or in too much of a hurry?

What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

-- from "Leisure," by W.H. Davies

Will one of the nation's greatest musicians be noticed in a D.C. Metro stop during rush hour? Violinist Joshua Bell experimented for Gene Weingarten's Sunday Magazine story in The Washington Post.  You won't regret reading this article.  It is long, but trust me it is worth the read!


Have a blessed day!

I am very excited to be featured in the current issue of Artful Blogging.  I would be more excited if I had a copy in my hands so I could actually see it.  I hope everyone else out there is enjoying their copy.  I'll wait patiently for mine!!!

Signs...

The dictionary defines the word sign as a notice, bearing a name, direction, warning, or advertisement, that is displayed or posted for public view: a traffic sign; a store sign.

Do you ever pay attention to all the signs around you?  There are some interesting ones out there!  If you are curious about the History of Signs visit here for some great information on the subject!  I posted a sign image yesterday and decided to post some more from my stash today.  Enjoy!!

Contentment...

Contentment

Within the borders of a run-down garden I saw this seemingly unusual pairing and thought how perfect it appeared, an old sink and a potted flower. And I thought of contentment...

Contentment is the state of being contented; satisfied; having ease of mind.  Ease of mind is a beautiful thing.  The real challenge is to be content in plenty or in want.  I hope you are content today and that your mind is at ease.  Take a deep breath and slow down just a bit.  Walk outside, either onto your porch or take a short walk.  Breath.  Look.  Listen.  There...it is all around you!

"To feel that one has a place in life solves half the problems of contentment." ~George E. Woodberry

Have a blessed day!

Just For Silly Fun...

Surfing the web is a time killer. It is great when it is 1:00AM and you can't sleep!  I'm sure this is nothing new,  but I found this place to make slide shows...I know there are a million out there, but this one had an old movie feature that I thought was fun.  So, I threw together some photos to make a silly little film called On the Farm.  Enjoy!!

Life It Photos ~ In The Pasture

In_the_pasture
Loved these beauties!!  Part of Life It Photos group.

Whew!  Finally went to the doctor yesterday to get some medication for this "creeping-crud" that I have had for a week now!  I was finally able to sleep prostrate rather than propped up straight against the headboard.  Who can sleep this way? :( 

Anyway, what is new in my world...well, I have to share how cool blogging and the internet is.  I was surfing one day and ran across the blog Rusted Rhubarb where I saw a picture of a river, which is not  from where I live.  I assumed that the post was made by someone visiting our area and I sent her a comment.  Much to my surprise I discovered that Michelle lives less than 2 miles from me!  We e-mailed a bit and then finally had coffee so we could meet face-to-face.  Michelle is fun and talented and I am so excited to have an art friend down the street!  Be sure to check out her hand-sewn aprons on her blog!  I have seen them up close and they are beautiful! 

Cheers,
