Beauty In Unexpected Places

One of the things I am determined to do during 2011 is slow down long enough to see the beauty in everyday things.  In an effort to begin getting back on schedule and because the dog had to go to physical therapy (a story for a different post), I got up early this morning.  I suppose we had what meterologists call "ice fog" last night.  There were these little crystals clinging to the roof of M's truck in the driveway.  The way the light shone on them made them sparkle like little diamonds scattered everywhere. 

See?  Isn't it beautiful?  Who knew?  Maybe I should get up earlier more often!

On another note, today I planned all of our family dinners for the month of January!  Woo-hoo!!!  New year here I come!


  1. Wow on the menu planning!! Totally impressive :)

  2. Holy cow! The whole month already! I'm impressed!! I'm lucky to do a week! Thanks for linking up with us at Click it Up a Notch! I look forward to seeing your photos capturing the little beauties in life :O)

  3. Beautiful image :). Kinda jealous about the meal planning. I have already forgotten what we ate tonight :). LOL!!

  4. Beautiful. I love things like this!

  5. Good tip on slowing down. I'm trying to do the same. Beautiufl sparkles.
