Joy List Monday


Joy List Monday
a weekly ritual

a reminder to stop and pay attention to the little beauties and graces that make life magical and to set aside time for gratitude each day

♥ surprises ~ big and small things that you were not expecting

♥ flowers still blooming in October ~ in Wisconsin 

♥ eating the first soup of the Autumn Season ~ back to comfort foods ~ Chicken Wild Rice Soup

♥ listening to music I danced to as a teen and having my boys watch me and dad dance and hear the music ~ talk about some good laughs

♥ finding the perfect pumpkin


 Have a great week my friends.
I will be away from the computer a few days. I will be back soon.

  2. Aw, this is such a sweet post, and chicken and rice soups sounds so good!!! We have all this soupy tropical air down here right now......Mid 70's with the dew points in the mid 70s at 8:00 in the morning! But still, the soup sounds good!

    I always enjoy these posts!

  9. Your flower is so beautiful! I bet that soup was delicious!
    Tonight is the coldest night we have had so far. I'm sure a frost is not far off.

  10. My teens listen to music from my husbands and my era - favourite bands include Green Day, Ramones,Guns n Roses - they don't really like anything modern. We are starting to get warmer temperatures now, spring blossoms everywhere.

  12. Hope you're enjoying your time in Madison. Sorry part of it has been rainy. We had soup on Monday, too--homemade Zuppa Toscana! Lovely Dahlia--yes, it's great to have flowers still blooming. :)

  13. I LOVE this list, especially the part about your boys and the music. I bet it was hysterical! I love that your flowers are still blooming there, that makes me smile. Our Zinnias are still vibrant and abundant too! PS - Having trouble commenting from my phone after the "update" but I'm here and I'm reading my friend! xo
