Make one thing every day, wander like a gypsy, and shine happiness like the sun

Day job

031updMeant to post this yesterday, as it was cold, wet, and dreary, but WP seemed to be having technical issues so it’s been bumped to today.  The cold and wind of today left no footprints.  Yesterday, however, did leave me an image of time spent and pennies happily earned.  Our little spectator was attentive too:)028

Wisdom from 75 years ago

I’ve mentioned before my love for old things.  I found this treasure at an estate sale a few months ago.  It’s massive and well worn.  Whoever invented “abridged” was a genius.  In any case, I was rifling through the pages and these entries caught my eye.  The theme is… ???ImageImageImageImageImageImageold, antique, estate, dictionary, unabridged, serenity, peace, rest, sangfroid

I’m having a baby!!…

Pineapple.  (At my age and stage this is more exciting than the other kinds 🙂  I rooted this pineapple top saved from a baby shower for my youngest human baby who just turned 10.  It has borne 2 pineapples since then.  I have it in my bathroom which has been converted to a greenhouse.  This caught my eye and surprised me this morning-a happy ray of sunshine on an otherwise dreary day.ImageImageImageImage

Intuitive UE

I was turned on to urban exploring from a kindly blog friend, Abandoned Kansai, and had set about to find places to explore.  My daughter unknowingly beat me to it.  This is an abandoned mill near her middle school. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
