Simple pleasures of mine from the last few days;

Create a new vignette for my kitchen island.  Bring out the old glass bottles.  Walk around the house and pick some fresh flowers.
Place it all on a white plate, all the while wishing I posessed some of your artistic, flower arranging skills.

Bring the lamp down from the attic.  New view to look at each morning, when I walk into my kitchen.  Flowers and ambience add happiness to my day.  I get a bit bored with the same view, just like my blog banners:)

We enjoyed time with the little guys.  Feeding ducks seemed like a big adventure to them. 
For us, it was a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

Especially at such a quaint, old, local park.

After the park, we had lunch at a local sandwich place.
Rare and treasured moments spent together.  Old and young learning from each other.
Do you sense a theme in this post?
Old bottles, an old park, and the "old" ones.

I never remember a summer with such gorgeous sunsets.
Breathtaking beauty that can make any day eventful.
This was taken early last evening.


And this was taken later in the evening.  I know you have seen a multitude of sunsets here on this blog.  I look at all that is happening in the current events of the world, and find it calms and quiets my heart when I see such supernatural beauty given to us as a gift from our Creator.  At the end of a day, no matter what that day held for me, whether joy or sadness, it brings comfort to me when I take in scenes like a brilliant sunset.  See the bird on the wire.

It is a brand new week and I pray that whatever it holds, you will find time for some simple pleasures that bless and comfort your heart.

Thank you for stopping by.

Sounds like perfect days to me Judy. For the little flower arrangements, I've been saving tiny little spice jars and things like that. They are so cute repurposed.

Your kitchen island looks so pretty and inviting. And those 'little guys'...well they are growing so fast! I can imagine what fun they had feeding the ducks with you both. And a beautiful sunset to end...thanks for sharing!

Judy ~ Love your little flower set up! I agree the sunsets/sky has been awesome this summer. Lots of photo ops to be sure.

Regardless of our circumstances God's beauty wraps it's arms around us...

Have a blessed day ~ Hugs!

Beautiful things to enjoy each and every day...whether old or new...from the garden or simply the view out the window. Love the bird on the wire!
