taking notice ~ week 31

noticeMy word for 2015 is Notice.  I love to observe, but am humbled by how often I realize how much I miss.  I’m looking, but not seeing.  So this year, my intention is to take notice of what’s happening around me.  I’ll post here some of what I notice each week.  I look forward to knowing what you’ve Noticed, too!

416.  It’s hard enough to work with cable/satellite companies for my own service, but trying to do it for Mom (who lives two and a half hour away) is a REAL adventure.

417.  I am SO capable of accomplishing absolutely nothing in a 24-hour period AND feel accomplished.

418.  God sends signs even/especially when I’m not looking for them.

419.  There’s always time for silly.

420.  This is a great recipe for homemade mozzarella.

421.  It made me sad to finish the best book I’ve read in 20 years (The Secret Wisdom of the Earth by Christopher Scotton).

422.  It also made me scared to start a new book.

423.  Audacity is user-friendly enough (and free!) that even I was able to edit an mp3 file with it.

424.  Byrdville  Farm Market NEVER disappoints!

425.  THAT Blue Moon was breath-taking!

426.  Just when Mom thought she’d received her final birthday card for the year, she received # 148 from President and Michelle Obama.

427. Not much beats celebrating with dear friends.

What did you notice this week?

  1. Road trips with girlfriends are a blast!

    Tobacco may be a noxious weed, but it’s awfully pretty as a field in flower.

    Hand-dyed fabrics billowing on a clothesline at Cary Quilting Company: dazzling.

    Fifteen years after I inherited it, my friend Marilyn’s stash is still giving me great surprises – this week a golden crystal to sit on a fabric leaf like a big dewdrop.

    If I didn’t pull them down, the seven kinds of vine in my yard could make my house into a jungle hut in a couple of years!

  2. I was 1/4 into that book and deciding whether to continue when I saw your newsletter. So I kept going. O. M. G. Thank you!
    I haven’t finished but close. Hard book to put down to get ready for church!
    (And I agree about starting a new one.)

  3. sending your oldest grandchild off to college is just as hard as sending your oldest..
    I LOVED the Secret Wisdom…read it almost non stop
    “Ain’t nothing more better” than family…warts and all
