in my corner...

...summer is officially here and that means so many, many good things:

...the weather is giving us beautiful warm days of sunshine sprinkled in with overcast days of shade and even a sprinkling or two of rain.


...our friends have returned and they have brought with them new little ones to love and admire.

...our school year is ending today and now we turn our attention to some serious outside play - bring it on!


...the garden has been planted and the veggies are growing, the flower pots are blooming and green is always our favourite colour.


...soccer season has ended for the summer, bike riding is a daily occurrence, we've made one trip to emergency so far and popsicles continue to make an appearance in the grocery cart.


...I am excited that mr. duckyhouse will officially be on holidays for almost all of July in which we will soak up his goodness with lots of play, beaching, day trips, and yes even some more renovations.

...I am picking up my camera again after a couple difficult months and realizing that it is through the lens that I am inspired to live a more grateful life.


...hoping your corner is filled with grateful memories too!


  1. Hello! This post is off topic but I just wanted fill you in! My husband and I have been reading your husband's book, "JHLTB" and it has confirmed so many of the feelings we've had over the past couple of years. The funny thing is that I've also been reading your blog as we have been homeschoolers for years. I JUST found out that two of my authors are married! All this time and I had no idea. We are currently in a very small, 4 day/week, Christian School until further notice. We are also studying birds and finished up learning about Audubon.
    Anyway, I thought it was a cool coincidence and wanted to share! Great job with the blog!

  2. Hello there and what a small world we live in. Thank you for leaving a comment, that is too funny how paths cross. I'm glad you are enjoying Paul's book, it seems to give encouragement & confirm things for many, many people that they are not alone.
    Love that you are doing bird studies :) makes me look forward to spring!
    thank you again for stopping by the blog,
    stay in touch,


I love reading your comments
