Simple things turn into special things...

 French Tea Garden by Childe Hassam

Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea.

Simple things turn into special things...

Water and Epsom salts turn into a healthy, relaxing bath.
Paper and pen turn into a letter to a friend.
Paper and crayons turn into art.
Words and a tune turn into a cheery song.
Fruit and sugar turn into jam for scones.
Needle, thread and calico turn into a patchwork quilt.
Knitting needles and yarn turn into cozy slippers. 
Water and cold air turn into frosty crystals.
A hug and kiss turn into balm for the soul.

Can you think of more?


  1. As I was wrapping my cold arms in my "butterfly wing" shawl this morning, I thought about how the squishy yarn turned into such a comfort. My long walk on the path (with my girl and her three girls!) turned into a deep and needed Saturday afternoon nap! The delicious pork loin I served for dinner last night made the most fantastic gravy for our mashed potatoes. I'm always so proud of myself when I "pull off" a good gravy! I had toast and Irish cheese for breakfast and now I shall turn water to tea. I love your heart and your bright mind, Jody!

  2. Oh I really enjoyed this!
    Sunshine and seeds turn into a garden

  3. How fun!
    Wood, saws and glue turn into furniture.

  4. Fabric and thread turn into a gift for a friend

    Trowel and gardening gloves and my pots of flowers make a splash of color

    Apple slices and cheese make a tasty morning snack

    Holding hefty ceramic mug filled to the brim with hot black coffee & sitting in my favorite morning chair with my Bible makes that little corner a Holy place


  5. Your recent posts have all warmed my heart Jody. I love this time of year on your ranch. Baby lambs are so sweet, and this post is simply lovely.

    Wind and leaves make music for our ears.
