Beauty is Everywhere

This is the scene from our patio last night......3 beautiful creatures just prancing along. Previous to this picture a small spotted fawn ran past but I didn't have my camera ready. There is beauty everywhere we look if we just have 'eyes' to see with, and many times we don't always notice the beauty around us because we become so jaded by seeing things day in and day out. What a shame and I'm as guilty as the next but I am trying to become much more aware of my surroundings both in and outdoors.

There is a gal on Ravelry who is blogging about her recent move and seems to have so much more to say that I do on the same subject. Of course, one of the reasons could be that she moved from the west coast to the east coast so there are many more stories to tell but I do like keeping up with what's happening to her as she begins a new adventure in her life. She is very keen on living more simply and getting back to the land and I applaud some of the steps she's taken but they wouldn't work for me and my darling husband.

We are still living in the same area, albeit in a new home, but the stores, restaurants, banks, etc. that we go to are the same as before which to me is a comfort rather than a bore. In fact, I don't know the meaning of the word 'bored' and never have, I'm happy to say. My mother's answer to any of us daring to say we were 'bored' was "okay then, I'll give you some work to do and you won't be bored anymore", so that's a word I have no familiarity with and I'm glad.

Things are moving right along as we strive to make 'our house' to become 'our home' placing things here and there, settling in. We also found 2 lovely wing back recliners for our Great Room which turned out to be perfect for relaxing, reading, watching tv, or just plain dozing.

As for knitting content, once again I have NONE to speak of at the moment, but I will get back to my favorite past time as soon as I get some good lighting with which to knit by. I used to have a floor lamp which was behind our sectional where I sat when knitting but now the sectional is in another room, which means the end table lamps just aren't doing the trick when it comes to knitting. So, yes, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Yes, your backyard visitors are very beautiful indeed! A person really does need to take the time to enjoy the little things.... there are so many to experience and to be grateful for.

Happy to hear that your move is going well. That chair looks like it would make a good knitting chair too. Eventually you'll get your mojo back!
