It's been a crazy week for us with out of town guests, a late Father's Day celebration, 8.5 hours of driving for me on Wednesday . . .
But even on busy days, I take time to look around and enjoy life's simple pleasures.
I am loving the canna lilies
that are slowly blooming all over the garden.
Steve and I escaped the heat and hit the water in our kayaks.
That long drive on Wednesday (4 hours each way) for a reunion planning meeting led to me spotting a gorgeous garden.
I moved a little table onto the back porch -
it needs to be painted, but for now it's dressed up with a patriotic display.
Out shopping the other day, I came across these little pieces of wood in one of my favorite shops
and that led to me writing words on a piece of driftwood.
I gathered shells, sea glass and starfish
to create a summer centerpiece for the dining room table.
Along with shells and starfish, my beach bucket collection is on display for summer.
While tackling the jungle the other day, I propped a shovel against the house - that gave me the idea of displaying my father's old garden tools all over the garden.
My final pleasure was actually Steve's - while I was driving in LA traffic, he spotted our resident bluebird hanging out on the most recent addition to the garden.
What were your simple pleasures this week?
