The Quotidian (23. 3. 15)

Quotidian: daily, usual, or customary;
everyday; ordinary; commonplace.


On one of Emma's birthday cards ~ all the way from Wales.


My sister made it ~ any guesses?


This one is for the H boys ~ he really, really, really does this...most days.


Where I often find him.


Part of the half cow I bought ~ thank you, Sue.  :)


Soaked and cooked and recipe ready.


Still in use ~ all.the.time.




Distance shot (from the kitchen window).


Directly under ~ looking up.

If we slow it all down and take it all in, we find beauty.
It's there.  Even in the littlest of things.
May the Lord help us this day to open our eyes to see.

With Love, Camille

Happy day to you, my friend :) It's always a sweet treat to visit you.

Thinking of you and wishing you a lovely week! Also, I LOVE those shoes :) Hugs!

Esther said...

Love these posts my dear friend!!Just beautiful! Yay Calvin for being such a thoughtful young man. I love Fraser's pose at the piano, almost reflective like he might be thinking of someone very special he's missing. And sweet Emma, love those shoes!! Thank you for letting us catch a glimpse into your everyday, beautiful lives. Hugs to you!!

That mouse is adorable. So are the shoes hehe. I think the mosaic must be Sea glass? Very pretty. We have beef in the exact packages… for the same reason; yum. Love that Emma is making one of those adorable quilts; that will be a treasure for her.

Spring is showing its beautiful face around here as well. Love all the flowering shrubs and trees, and enjoyed all of your pictures.

Have a lovely week.
Blessings,
Pam

Dear Nikki ~ Awwww...thank you my friend. I know you have many similar moments around your home. Hugs to you! :)

Dear Stephanie ~ Thank you for your kind encouragement. You bless my heart. Happy week to you. :)

Dear Esther ~ It's Calvin's chore...he is required to do it. Fraser is my basement bathroom cleaner and has daily dish duty...lest you think Calvin is the only boy who works around here. :)

Dear Pam ~ You are the only one who answered my question! Yes, you are right...it's sea glass from when she lived in Maine. And, she made some of it into a trivet for me...wasn't that sweet? Hugs to you. :)

Dear Jennifer Jo ~ Thank you my friend! Don't you just love spring?? :)

Dear Patty ~ Thank you for your visit. Hugs. :)

With love,
Camille

I do love the shoes and the blooming trees of course. Slowing down to see beauty in the smallest things always good advice.

I'm so glad you are enjoying your beef. We are too. :)

Camille said...

Dear Maryann ~ And, blessings to you my friend! May the Lord continue to give you His daily grace and strength. He is with you. Hugs! :)

Dear Sue ~ We are loving the beef! My brother cooked the Prime Rib over hot coals for us...oh, was it ever amazing!! Hugs to you. :)

With love,
Camille

I agree, those red shoes are perfect shoes for spring~ Just lovely.

I love how children find their "spots" in the house where they are most comfortable. Mine is currently the recliner ;-)

Dear Cinnamon ~ I am praying for you this morning as you rest and wait for this newest little one to arrive. May the Lord continue to give you grace and comfort. With love, Camille
