March Au revoir and Hello Again

all preceding photos are from the most recent ice storm, which once again knocked down trees and hydro poles, leaving many 'in the dark..' ours came back on in time for Easter!

Hello, it's been a while! Where have I been? you ask...

Some days I ask myself that question! 

The weeks just seem to roll by, not paying any heed to blog posts or lack of time...

                    this is our yard...so sad to see trees break...but I guess they're only trees..

Although I have been busy, I am not actually that busy! I simply have felt myself drawn to other pursuits sometimes let's say.
This morning while chatting and having coffee with a few friends one girl mentioned that her sister is SO busy that she admitted she would never have 'time' to visit with anyone for an hour.  I don't know about you but in my opinion that is simply too busy!

Life is a series of choices and although we can't control all of our circumstances we certainly have somewhat of a choice in how busy we make our lives...                                                                        

                                                  our yard again, sun breaking through

I have to say that although I am the kind of person who thrives on a day brimming with activity, I hope I am never too busy to stop a while and chat with someone, or to call my mother, or to send a card to a friend.

Although I know I've missed opportunities at times, I hope also I have seized opportunity.

I hope I notice people's eyes and expressions...

I hope I remember to care and pray...

I had a birthday recently, and everyone was home...gathered around the table, making conversation, and laughing...Special times are treasured, but every day I can choose to hurry, or to make haste slowly.


Lingering a little longer because life may not wait, and I don't intend to miss it.


  1. Lucy, your pictures are so pretty today. I, myself, don't like to be too busy. My mind is more at peace when I live life simply and not rushed. I keep scrolling up and down to look at your pictures. They are truly special. And the time spent with all your family on your birthday is wonderful.

    love, ~Sheri

  2. Make haste slowly...I'm going to try to remember that.

    That ice storm reminds me of too many that we had in the 23 years of living in Oklahoma. It's beautiful and sparkly but so sad the damage that is done to the trees. Glad you had your power back in time for Easter.

    Happy birthday. :)

  3. Happy birthday, lovely Lucy. Thank you so much for stopping by, and for always encouraging me with your kind words.
    Love this post. I am definitely "drawn to other pursuits" too, more than anything sitting in stillness and in simplicity. The world is spinning so fast these days.
    Beautiful pictures. It's good to be in touch again.

  4. Birthday blessings Lucy!!
    Its so good to slow down isn't it. I prefer the quiet life although I too get a bit busy at times.
    Im so glad April is here and look forward to the warmer days...and then of course..summer!
    Blessings on your weekend my friend xo
    All my heart,

  5. Oh I adore your frozen images of this fairy wonderland.


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
