Small Things - January 15, 2022

"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 inspired me this week.

1. Gentle goals for a new year.

2. 1000 Hours Outside Kick Off Pack - a wonderful resource if you have have children (especially if you homeschool), but to be honest, I'm going to give it a go myself, I'm not shooting for a thousand, but definitely want to up my game.

3. Snowflake Pancakes - this might be for breakfast tomorrow, too cute!

4. Love this little needle house for keeping up with your needles. 

5. Alexandra Stoddard has long been a favorite author of mine, and this was the first of her books that I read, and possibly still my favorite. Pour a cup of tea and enjoy!

6. But Of Little Things

Life is made up,
not of great sacrifices or duties,
but of little things,
in which smiles and kindnesses,
and small obligations given habitually,
are what win and preserve
the heart and secure comfort.

- Sir H. Davy

Also, the picture at the top was part of my Christmas present from my aunt and I just LOVE it! I've since framed and hung it (I'll share in another post).
