Right Now...

* Finn is making decorations for his birthday party. His birthday is November 7th.

* I am feeling thankful for this wonderful place in which we live and that we are able to immerse ourselves in nature frequently.

* I can hear the soft running of my old dog's paws as he dreams during his afternoon nap.

* I am watching the hummingbirds and sparrows take turns at our feeders. There is something so soothing about sitting quietly and watching birds.

* I am pondering about my garden and what needs to be accomplished over the next week or so.

*I am trying to soak up these last few weeks of summer, not wanting it to end, yet, simultaneously also looking forward to autumn.

What are you doing right now?

Pin It Now!


  1. catching up on blog posts, gearing up for a crazy week of moving the son (busy!) and making so many lists!!

  2. Decorations already, so sweet! We have been bird watching here, a mama robin and her babies, one left the nest this morning. Always a joy to watch. Enjoy these last few weeks.

  3. You do live in a beautiful place. Enjoy what's left of summer. Ours is already over (back to school ~ sigh). Have a great week.

  4. I love your photos! They capture the small, but beautiful things in life. :)
