I Heart Faces – Innocent Wonder

“Know you what it is to be a child?
 It is to be something very different from the man of to-day.
It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism;
it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief;
 it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear;
 it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses,
 lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything,
or each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul.”
Francis Thompson

I Heart Faces – Winter Wonderland

This is a picture of my son dropping snow in front of him… he had been playing on a sidewalk in front of a store while we were waiting for his dad to come out… No coat but gloves…. a snowball fight between him and his sissy soon followed… love how if you take the time you can make a mundane task of waiting fun…. It was fun for me, we had the camera with us and I got some other great shots that day as well.  

Head on over to I Heart Face to see some other fabulous entries.

Ever feel like you are going in circles?

Entertaining video… if you live around these things you know what a pain they can be.  In our state they seem to being going up whenever an intersection is under construction.  We don’t only have single roundabouts but double and triple ones too!  Talk about confusing….

Hope Aunt Lois did not die! 


Do you like roundabouts or do you get nervous like me when you see you are approaching one? Ever get stuck on one?

Post a Day? Post a Week?

WordPress has a challenge to post a day or a week and they will help you keep track…

Hmm, could I really post every day? Maybe. Maybe, when you think about it a one word post still qualifies as a post… what if this computer crashes though. I like th challenge of attempting to post every day but would I really stick with it? probably not…. decisions, decisions… what should I do ….

Looks like it will be a post a week…. At least we will give it a try. 🙂

Lately I have been enjoying reading centered text on other blogs…. going to give that a try here too! 

One of these days I might actually figure out how to use different fonts as well! 

So anyway, have a great day and if you are a blogger take up the wordpress challenge to post every day or at least once a week.
