These two prints were in my parent’s bedroom when I was growing up and I always loved them.  Now they are in our bedroom.  They aren’t valuable, and most of the time I hardly notice them. But as I was getting dressed today my eye glanced up and I saw their beauty.  What do you have in your home that you forget to notice its beauty?

31 Days of Beauty and Quotes Day 21

Welcome to 31 days of beauty and quotes day 21.

When I saw this saying I knew it was true. I grew up in a tea drinking household. Whenever there was a problem, my mother always put the kettle on for a cup of tea and it always seemed to make us feel better.  Many years ago, my dad died suddenly at the age of 59.  We were all in shock and someone put on the kettle to make some tea.  I can remember one of us saying, “This is the first time a cup of tea has not helped.”

Do you like tea?  There are several tea parties hosted on Tuesday so I’m joining a few today:

31 Days of Beauty and Quotes Day 20

Welcome to 31 days of beauty and quotes day 20.

I love this photo and this bible verse.

What happened to days  18 and 19 you ask?  Well let me tell you. I am 3  days behind with my 31 day challenge icon sad 31 Days of Beauty and Quotes Day 20

When  it comes to discipline, I am very bad so this 31 day challenge has been quite a challenge for me.

But on top of that I decided  to have a shopping fast for the month of October, buying only food or anything absolutely necessary for the whole month. If that weren’t enough discipline for one month, my friend and I decided we needed to lose some weight and are holding each other accountable. My goal is no snacking between meals and eating more healthy. Goodbye  nice comforting bowl of cereal before I go to bed!

What was I thinking trying all these at the same time!? Yikes!  So the shopping is going great and the eating is going well, but I am two days behind on my blog so I’ll just do a couple days in a row here to catch up.

It is one of those perfect fall days.  The sun is shining.  There is a slight breeze. The sky is clear and the air is fresh. As I walked around my garden I snapped some photos.
