10 On 10: May

Happy Friday!

And it's the 10th!
So I'm joining in on the fun over at A Bit Of Sunshine .

10 pictures in 10 hours
embracing the beauty in the ordinary

My day was very much ordinary yesterday,
so it was fun to look for the hidden beauty.

Here we go!

6 am
 Starting my morning with the necessities
(LARGE cup of coffee not pictured)

 Kids are still snoozin'.
I very briefly thought about putting on some jogging sneakers,
but quickly decided to go with my garden boots.
I had some delphiniums who needed a new home.

8 am
 Kids awake, pancake time.

9 am
 School's in session

10 am
 Spelling test while baking cookies

1 pm
 The weather was TOO beautiful to be inside.
History on the front porch!

2 pm
 School's out!
Pricing some new goodies to bring into Station 8.

3 pm
 Chore Time
Girls needed an incentive to FOCUS.

4 pm
Packaging up some fun new banners.

5 pm
The house is a disaster.
But I found a sweet bouquet picked with sweet hands 
greeting me on the windowsill. 

It was a great day indeed!
We finished it off by going to the girls choir concert and art show
and had a frozen yogurt treat.

Sweet indeed!

Hope you get a chance to look for the beauty in your ordinary day!
