Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share


Happy Monday!  (Oops, where did the time go?  I guess this post is getting published a day late…Happy Miscellaneous Tuesday!)

Well friends, I have some major, time-consuming projects in the works and I need to apologize in advance that posts may be sparse in the next few months.  Nevertheless, today I’d like to share these miscellaneous items with you:

  1. I found a great NEW family history blog with, what looks like, some of the lines I need to research further.  I’ll be contacting the blogger soon to see if we can collaborate. Anyone else looking for Thornton genealogy?  Check it out! {HERE}

2. I’m SO excited that it’s peach season! I think the peach is my all-time fav fruit.  I just searched ‘peach’ on pinterest, and now I’ve gotta make Peach and Mustard Glazed Pork Chops, Grilled Peaches, Peach Jam, Fresh Peach Pound Cake, and a Rustic Peach and Strawberry Tart!  OH YEAH, YUM!  I’ve got to get to a farmers market soon!

3. Lastly, our (well…my) NEW favorite game to play which was introduced to us by our DIL is SPOT IT.  It is SO frustratingly fun to play!  I like games…although, my male-dominant household…not so much.  But sometimes I get lucky and get to play a few hands, yeah!

Have a great day!  Learn or do something NEW!

a NEW photo of my week and a short Sunday sermon


Happy Sunday!  I naturally ‘Find Joy in the Ordinary’….all of the time.  I hope you do too.  I find joy in photography, nature, my family, music…and so much more! For today’s Sunday sermon, I’ll simply share links to some beautiful and spiritually inspiring music.  I hope you enJOY them:

Lift Me Up

If the Savior Stood Beside Me

You Raise Me Up

Have a great day!  Do or learn something NEW!



NEW photos of my week


Happy Friday!  If you saw yesterday’s Thursday’s Thought post, you’ll notice these pics are all quite similar!  Here’s the rest from that photo shoot.   My Mother-in-Law, that just moved in with us, received a bouquet of flowers from her daughter and I stole them for this shoot….and with Valentine’s Day coming up, I have LOVE on my mind :o)

I was actually inspired by this ABSOLUTELY LOVELY post at LavenderBleu blog

NEW photo of my week #44


Hi all!  Here’s another NEW photo of my week.  Again, don’t you wish you could smell these roses?  Photographs do such a great job at duplicating the sight of things…wouldn’t it be great if someone would invent a good scent duplicator?!?  (Not just the very artificial perfume rose scent).  Ahhhh…maybe someday :o)
