The little things that matter in life

Can't believe it is Monday again already!!  There must be something in the air as everyone keeps asking me what I am taking because I have been in a great mood lately!!  I said just taking things in and enjoying life.  Even to the smallest details and that is what matters in life.  There are so many tiny miracles that surround us everyday that sometimes we forget to stop and take a look around.  You know is contagious!!  :)  Well our vacation is coming up in 17 days also so that may have something to do with it too ;-)

Anywho....wasn't able to do much today as I had to work and it was my middle granddaughter's birthday and also my SIL so went home to let the dogs out and get them fed, then off to the party.  I did get a few things done this evening though so I will share. is the little things ;-)

I found these cute storage containers at the Dollar Store and could not pass them up.  I always need little containers for so many things and I love that some of these have slots too!  They come flat and very easy to put together so now I will have to figure out where I am going to use them at.

Put up a little saying on our backdoor....the picture turned out strange as the door looks curved to me but I swear it isn't and it is straight lol.
Stopped to take a look up in the sky as occasionally that is my real quiet time and especially when I am missing Dad.  The weather was strange today.  It got up to 87 degrees and was sunny for awhile, then clouds rolled in but still the same temp.  Strangest weather I've seen in all my 50+ years lol.

 These are some pencil pouches I picked up and wanted to personalize for the grandbabies.  I still have 2 more to pick up but they didn't have the colors I wanted but all 6 of the kids will have their own this year, all fit to their personalities and color likes :)

 Birthday present wrapped and all pretty for the birthday girl and the last touch to her present are the cutest lollipops I've seen in awhile :)

Think it was a productive day all the way around :)  Have a wonderful evening and happy crafting!!
