Small Things - October 9, 2021

"Life is not, for most of us, a pageant of splendor, but is made up of many small things, rather like an old fashioned piecework quilt. No two people have the same, but we all have our own, whether it be listening to Beethoven's fifth with a beloved friend, or seeing a neighbor at the back door with a basket of white dahlias. Or after a long, hard day, having the family say, "That was a good supper."


In no particular order, here are six small things that have inspired me this week!

1. Your Autumn Hygge List, and the website in general, That Scandinavian Feeling.

2. Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts. I was never a big pop tart fan, but I might be tempted to try these.  Also, if don't know Lisa, get to know her! I love EVERYTHING about her and her blog. EVERY-THING!

3. I love this idea for keeping a Dinner Diary. I think it could come in really handy, especially for people like me who often try a recipe, love it, and then proceed to never make it again, or years later when I recall that I made that before and loved it. But maybe it's just me! :)

4. 24 Ways To Have A Cozy Autumn, and the website, Cozy, Simple, Calm. I haven't had a lot of time to peruse it, but come one, the name alone?

5. The Cozy Burrow, another "cozy corner" of the web that I discovered this week. I particularly enjoyed her posts on "Stillness", which is her word of the year. I hope to spend more time here soon and have added her to my always growing, seemingly never ending list of Kindred Spirits. If you ever get bored, here, just click on one of those links. They are all wonderful!

6. And it was because of Kate, that I discovered Your One Word, which I now plan to devour and put to use in January when I choose my word for the year.  I've already begun to pray about it and I'm thinking I'm going to stick with my word for 2021, which is SEEK. I just don't think God is done with that one yet, but then I felt the same way last year about my word for 2020, which was DWELL. So maybe I'll contemplate both of them for 2022? At any rate, I love what I'm seeing at this site and I'll definitely be spending some time here over the next month.

Thanks so much for linking to my blog and saying such kind things about it, Kimberly. I'm now following you, too!

I love all the cozy links included - autumn is the coziest and most wonderful time of the year! And a dinner diary sounds brilliant. I'm the world's worst meal planner and I can see how that could come in handy, especially with notes about how everyone reacted to the meal!
