taking a moment to find joy in the little things
So far July has been moving along at a slower pace than June and I'm thrilled - it feels like summer is finally here and we can enjoy some lazy days at home. And by lazy days I mean gardening, running, washing windows and more...
My garden is making me ridiculously happy....being able to bring fresh flowers in to brighten up the house, visiting all the garden friends several times a day, and just checking daily at the progress of everything.
Regularly I look out the window to see if any hummingbirds are visiting the honeysuckle...last week I saw this robin all pugged up on the point of the arbor.
I know I'm her mom so I'm somewhat biased, but my 11 year old continues to blow me away with her artistic abilities. Her friend sent her some photos of her chickens and she decided to paint them. Then my mom sent a photo of her dog and she painted him, too. And then I sent her photos I had taken from the garden and she painted those. I love watching her because it's just so natural for her and she approaches it so differently than I would.
