taking a moment to capture contentment and joy in every day life
We had the most gorgeous sunset this week. We don't see the sun very often in winter, and when we do there is a good chance we'll have a nice sunset. When I saw the sun setting I grabbed my camera and headed out. I snapped a few shots and then headed home. It had been pretty and I was quite pleased with myself and my pictures.
Then about 20 minutes later I looked out and saw a pink sky and knew THIS is what I had been hoping for. It was stunning. I sat on my neighbor's dock and just soaked it all in. It was so peaceful watching the ducks swim off into the sunset. Sometimes it pays to wait just a little longer.
I can't help but be happy when I see daffodils beginning to poke through the ground. It seems early, but it's common for daffodils to bloom in February around here. The bulbs I have in my yard bloom later (March and April), so it's fun to enjoy my neighbors' and then mine!
During school one day this week I heard one daughter say to the other, "Does it look like a real mustache?" At which point I looked up and realized she had drawn a mustache on her face. She's silly, that one!
