Happy birthday Verne!

Verne's birthday party!


Little miss Natalie told me all about the three blow-up Halloween things in their front yard...

but this little tree stump jack-o-lantern guy was her favorite. This one got a hug!


I recently read Life in Five Senses by Gretchen Rubin. Great read! 

She has inspired me to pay more attention to my five senses throughout the week.

This week I've searched out the colour blue.

These well loved blue wellies were hanging on the playground fence at work. 

To me they tell a story about a young child who did some puddle stomping!


My daughter got a new puppy! Her name is Violet and she is a gentle little soul.

The children love her!

She still needs some house training though.

Glad I have a cat.


My older daughter, Hannah, was at Verne's birthday party so I got to spend a little time with her as well.

That made me very happy.

    LOVE the sound of that book. I am going to see if our library has it! I"m all about embracing the senses...especially out in God's creation/nature. I'm leading a meditative walk tomorrow AM with some church ladies and it's supposed to rain. I told them we are walking anyways! It will be good for them. :)
    Have a happy weekend!
