I’ve been up more during the night, than the day – something I want to change, especially since it’s Spring. When this picture was taken, I was sick, and half-awake, listening to the rain fall outside. 2 months ago
Cooler and light rain this morning so decided to stop for a small cup of Ceylon tea at my favorite coffee shop and I enjoyed every delicious sip, transformation! 13 months ago
While scrubbing, patching and painting the outside of the house yesterday I saw 2 monarch butterflies :) Paco came home early from working and brought all the supplies for margaritas and a cookout! A lovely ordinary day. 14 months ago
it’s been raining all day – we took a ferry ride to Kingston anyhow. It was a warmish rain so at Brackett’s Landing I could smell the nootka roses. Had a delicious cup of blackberry-sage tea while waiting for the ferry. In Kingston we stopped for a snack and sat at an outside picnic table with a huge canvas umbrella. We sat nibbling strawberries and listeninh to the rain pattering on the umbrella. It was a lovely, lovely afternoon. 14 months ago

and watched part of a movie with William Powell and Myrna Loy called “I Love You Again” (1940). Now let me go and finish watching it and get a good night’s sleep.
Today was a wonderfully ordinary day! 14 months ago

Routine means you’re doing something over and over again, and most likely getting better and better at it…then the Law of Accumulation takes effect. The Law of Accumulation states that consistency brings results.
For example by watching a bit of a movie here and there (it took me 4 days to watch Frank Sinatra’s film “Hole in the Head”) I’ve managed to watch more than 1200 films over the last decade. This was great fun and I did it little by little over thousands of “ordinary” days. 14 months ago
Most of my days seem ordinary to the outsider, but most of them are actually magical. I see the things God is doing in my life as He often speaks to me in symbols and sort of like those logical puzzles I have done since I was a child.
He loves speaking to me in code and I love it. It’s very personal. Sometimes when I am so wrapped up in myself, I forget to see the magic of every single day. But, when I am aware, I feel so warm and fuzzy that I am so special to God that He makes my days magical, making the ordinary into the extraordinary. 15 months ago
there is a lot of activity. The kids will be doing their homework, I’ll be cooking and working on a little craft project. I love having a home where everyone is active, positive and productive. 15 months ago
I happily took a bath and put on my pjs. The pajama pants are new, I recently bought them for a trip and I love wearing them while I’m on the couch studying or at the computer writing. I want to get some more and wild colorful socks I would never wear outside. 20 months ago
