Finding Joy..

… in the mundane. Something that can be hard to do. I think we all have our times when life just feels dull. Another load of wash, another meal to prepare, cleaning a home that stays clean for about 5 min. if you are lucky πŸ™‚ For me, when I take the time to pull out my camera and get some photos of the everyday, I look through them and smile. Because it’s life, wonderful life! In the boring, in the busy, in the pull your hair out days :).

Some of my everyday…

au 002Boys and dirt… au 003 au 004Beans and more beans. Kirsten was such a good helper with snipping ends off!au 005 au 006 au 007 au 048I love everything about this photo. My 2 youngest, just being together. (It’s not always like this, folks ;)).au 034And how often do your parents give you permission to break into the safe? πŸ˜‰ I guess when the keys are sadly lost. These 2 look like little thieves πŸ˜‰au 035 au 036Tunnel of straw the boys made. They had fun with this for a few days..au 037Flowersau 044Peaches.. I was ready to be done πŸ™‚ I know there are those that do more than I did, but I can’t say I enjoy canning and freezing. Although there is a sense of satisfaction seeing all your hard work! And it tastes good in the winter!!au 049 au 050 au 051 au 059 au 060au 065 au 066Just a butterfly, but so beautiful!

I encourage you to get your camera or phone out, and take photos of your days, normal or crazy πŸ™‚ I’m pretty sure you’ll be glad you did!
