It is a gray, overcast day, dreary and devoid of color.  The beauty of autumn fades so fast. I am looking forward to the snow. The scenery needs some brightness and cleanliness added to its drab blanket.


I'm in slow motion today. Not sure if its the weather or lack of sleep, maybe a combination of both. 

I have two down with sickness, quarantined to their bedroom. And school has been put on hold for the day.  Homemade chicken soup and quiet time seems more important right now.

I've lit some candles


and have praise and worship music playing softly in the background.  I'm going to focus on taking care of my sick boys and thanking the Lord for the blessings He has given me. Even the bare trees and sullen sky.

Because every now and then I have a bit of color and activity flitting to my back deck to remind me of God's beautiful creation.



  1. Sounds wonderful!! well, not that little ones are sick... but other then that, it's my kind of day.

    Although, we do have a pretty nice day here, lots of sunshine and bright colored clothing flitting on the lines outside. ((yawn - the laundry))

    Sorry you have two little sick ones, there. Hope you all get better soon.

  2. Enjoy you day of rest... sort of... kind of hard with sick little ones.
    God's Blessings to you today!

  3. I'm so sorry the youngens are sick. I sure hope they get over it quickly.

    It's been one of those days here and I've blogged and gone through old photos. {SIGH} The chili is simmering and I just cannot seem to accomplish anything. Must be something in the air!

    Have a good one and I'll say a little prayer for your little sickies.

  4. Sounds like a good way to spend the day. (Not good that your boys are sick, of course!) But it sounds homey, sort of . Chicken soup...candles...and it's always good to thank God for the blessings He's given. Hope your boys will be on the mend soon! Thank you for stopping by my blog! I'm glad you visit!

  5. It is sunny and yawn here, too. I have a dog down. I think that I will take your lead. Thankful and a little sleepy.

  6. Such lovely pictures...I especially like the one of the candle. Sorry to hear some of your children are sick...i think it's a good thing you made it a quiet day for everyone!


  7. Sickness?! Oh no! Sorry to hear that, Jenn!

    I am amazed at how a flickering candle and soft music can be so comforting and relaxing!
