February 22, 2017 - Outdoor Wednesday - #424 - Signs inside Packages





Greetings and Salutations!   If you would like to view Outdoor Themes click here: http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/.  Thank you Susan for being the hostess.







Opened the front door and discovered this package. Have you noticed these signs inside of packages you receive?  The items are wrapped so carefully.  My younger son, Norm, is so thoughtful.  He ordered a new Pyrex lid for a casserole dish that I use all the time.   Guess what?   The lid fits!  Amazing how a small gift given not at Christmas time or on a birthday makes one feel so special.   I'm special!   Thank you Norm!

February 20, 2017 - Thinking Outside the Box - Abstract WP20170220011B Quote - E. B. White - Wonder




Abstract WP20170220011B

Quote:

"We must always be on the look out for the presence of wonder."
~ E. B. White

Boredom can lead to wonder here is how it happened to me.  John, my husband, and Alex left me alone at a table in Eggsperience Pancakes & Cafe, 176 Randhurst Village Drive, Mt. Prospect, IL 60056, 847 222 2222.  So I took my camera phone out of my purse and began taking photographs of lemon in a water pitcher. I was being my child like playful self and began to wonder if I got closer, further away, over the top and through the glass what would happen?  Would the camera see what I saw or not?  Awesome time by myself. First family came back.  Then the food arrived.   I was back to being 35 miles from normal again.

In Illinois it has been one gray day after another and sometimes it would actually rain but at least we are not experiencing snow, ice and wind.  This photo was taken in 2016.  Just had to see blue skies again.  Happy Ground Hog's Day!
