I was playing in my sketchbook after a long day.
I added this favorite quote by Melody Beattie:
It says: “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life!
It turns what we have into enough, and more –
It can turn a meal into a feast,
A house into a home,
A stranger into a friend.”
May you find gratitude in the simple joys of your life! 🌈
Happy Creating! 😊🎨

I had an AWESOME weekend at the lake! I thought this photo looked like it could be a postcard:
Some white, fluffy clouds for you to gaze at! Do you see any images in them? I thought I saw a bird – imagine that! 🙂
My husband and I were out in our boat on this unusually HOT day when we saw this rope swing on the shoreline:
No, we did not swing from it – sorry to disappoint you all! But we did go in the lake for a couple of QUICK dips as the water was a cool 66 degrees. When the air temperature is in the 90’s – the cold water was very refreshing!
We discovered a hidden gem near this rope swing – a waterfall!
It was well hidden in the trees but we could hear its loud roar from the boat. The waterfall is in the middle of the above photo.
It was such a pretty place on the lake. No cabins so it was all natural.
It was the kind of day that made you look up at the blue sky and have a heart of gratitude for this beautiful place and being present to enjoy it!
May you discover the hidden beauty around you this week!
