Beautiful Day!


"Exuberance is beauty." ~William Blake

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy." ~Anne Frank

Hello warm friends! Guess what? They are selling dishes at the grocery store again. I must say, it makes me feel very happy about my grocery store. Some of the shoppers live in gigantic fancy houses and this store does cater to the "fancy" but when I see dishes for sale and big cozy chairs for sale . . . well, I like that kind of spunk on their part because I don't think the snazzy shoppers buy furniture and dishes at this particular location. I shall take myself to the market today and I might buy a dish. I will buy something hearty for dinner, a few offerings from the bakery, and I'll see if there are any new fruits. I'm taking my big camera because there are so many colors at the local grocery!


I took a zillion photos yesterday for a slide show I'm making for a school event. Snap! Snap! Snap! Most people flirt with a camera. Well, maybe just middle school kids flirt with cameras.

I spent my morning doodling in a paperback Bible, eating eggs, talking to first son on the phone, speaking with my sun dwelling parents on the phone, changing the sheets on our bed, hanging a wash load out on the line. I saw birds perching tenuously on twiggy branches, dining at my bird feeders. I'm still in my pajamas so if I'm going to do anything else today, I'd better spring into action.
Oh, it's another dividend day!
Sending love and joy your way, my friends!

Dishes at the grocery! I haven't seen that in FOREVER! So fun -- I hope them come to my store next :) Love that teenage exuberance. Young people do have that in spades.

Hi Pom Pom - all my crockery is plain white so seeing the pretty patterned china on your blog was inspiring especially after a day in a grey call centre with nothing pretty to look at. I have been reading my creative is a verb book and am so enjoying it. Betty x

Great picture with the kids jumping! and the tea set (dishes) ...love it! It reminds me of Blue Willow dishes. I wish our grocery store would sell dishes like yours.

Love the oval platter - do you know the willow pattern story, and the poem that begins "Two birds, flying high..."?

Blessings!

I bought my outdoor furniture at the grocery store. It was pretty and affordable. :) You have had a very productive Saturday. I am taking a break after painting two bedrooms...the house is a wreck!

A dividend day! For all of us, because of you.

I was just thinking about my treasured cobalt blue bowls that are great for a generous serving of soup, and which I got at the local grocery store about 20 years ago! I only bought six or so at the time, and I think I have all of them, they are so sturdy...but they are getting a little worn, and I was wishing the store still carried such things sometimes....
