10 On 10 : Saturday Style


It's the 10th!  

So I'm linking up with the beautiful Rebekah at A Bit Of Sunshine
and her fun challenge to 
take 10 pictures in 10 hours 
to capture the beautiful in the ordinary.

I decided to shoot my pics on Saturday because . . . somebody . .  not naming any names . . . but it begins with an 'A' and ends in a 'y' woke up quite the cranky-pants on Saturday.
So it was a perfect day to look for beauty 
in the bits of my ordinary day.

Here we go!


6:30 am
 I ran out of my regular creamer, so I improvised.


8:30 am
 Breakfast


10 am
 I struggled with finding beauty in my mountains of laundry.
But I found it!
An empty laundry basket!


11 am
 Watering the flowers.
Have you bought your mums yet?


1 pm
 Lesson planning with a little left over coffee.


2 pm
 Sweet girl crafting a few outfits for her doll.


3 pm
Frozen yogurt date with another sweet girl.


5:30
An after dinner hike
(I LOVE this time of day to hike)

7:30 pm
 Heading home


8:30 pm
Blizzards!

A sweet way to end our day.

I didn't quite get my 10 pics in 10 consecutive hours.
But it worked!  Intentionally looking for beauty in my day changed my bad attitude.  I highly suggest this challenge any day of the month, even if you don't write a blog.
It's a sweet way to be reminded of all your blessings.


Have a marvelous Monday!
