Still Thankful for Little Things

A sturdy little steer . . .
A tiny spider web. . .
Raindrops on a pansy . . .
And a gentle mist on the world outside.

Your world is so beautiful.
I thoroughly enjoyed Art's Blood ...now I must get the next two in the Elizabeth series.

Merisi said...

I can see a book with a collection of your gorgeous photographs in the future! I imagine leaving through it while having my first cup of tea, to begin the day with a positive outlook and feelings of gratitude and surrounded by beauty.

Note to myself:
Leafing does not equal leaving.

It's so easy to overlook the small things in our lives. Yet, so often, they are the very things that hold it all together. Nice photographs, Vicki.

Joan said...

beautiful words of gratitude . I am just beginning Art's Blood! My summer reading just beginning and Art's Blood first on my list.

Little things, but great words and photos!
I love the rain drops on the violet pansy!

Your pictures always make me smile and sigh. The simple, little things are the best and you sure know how to capture them.

It is the small things we need to be grateful for, isn't it. This morning my daughter and I were admiring the frost outlining the fallen leaves and how beautiful they were.

Bouncin' Barb said...

That steer is so cute! Great shots again Vicki!

Suz said...

oh yeah..you know how to enjoy life

Vicki Lane said...

So glad you ladies in NZ are enjoying Elizabeth! I have a real feeling she'd love NZ!

I'm awaiting YOUR book, Merisi!

And Martin, of course, has already done one with beautiful words and images.

Oh, yes, Karen -- I love the frost-edged leaves!

Beatiful photos, especially the sturdy steer. It is important to appreciate the little things, thanks for the reminder.

What a handsome baby. I love the color of his coat.

Darla said...

Wonderful photos...love the capture of the web and the droplets on the pansy...so delicate...

Elora said...

Best you be gettin' ready for a BIG rainstorm tomorrow, though...! We already have a flash flood watch in effect for four counties here in WV. And perhaps even a few wayward flakes of snow over there in the mountains...!

My goodness...he's not such a little thing anymore, is he? What a beautiful animal.

The photographs are lovely.

I've just finished 'Art's Blood' too and last night I started 'Old Wounds'.
What a pretty little steer. He's lovely.
I always enjoy your pictures. The mist shows in the last one.
Blessings, Sar

Ohh, I've fallen in love with a chocolate brown calf with big soft eyes...

BB said...

Oh, I want to rub that sturdy little steer's head and feel his fuzzy wuzzy coat. He's just going to be a family pet, right? :)

Vicki Lane said...

Elora -- It's dripping rain and the sky is ominous! Time to hunker down!

The steer is a Red Devon -- but alas, he's not going to be a pet, BB! This is a farm.

That little steer is a beauty. Thanks for the pie recipe. It looks wonderful!

Mama-Bug said...

The small things in life can bring us so much pleasure. Love the photos Vicki! I'm excited because dear hubby is getting me all your books for Christmas, can't wait to get them and start reading!

Vicki Lane said...

That's music to my ears, Mamabug!

I hope your Thanksgiving was extra special :)
