OLW February Blog Hop


Welcome to the February Blog Hop! I hope everyone has had as good a February as I have. It's been a crazy busy month and I've neglected this blog, but I'm hoping things have settled down to a reasonable pace now. I just barely got my prompt done in time. I'm finishing it up on February 29. It's a good thing it's leap year, or I'd be late!!! 


I thought at the beginning of the month how easy this prompt was going to be with this word and that I'd get it done in no time, so I ended up not doing it until the end, for the most part.  It's a good thing that it was an easy prompt for this word.  The pictures are of things that I am thankful for and of things that I am doing or hope/plan to do to get more grace.  Starting from the upper left corner the pictures are: 1. Henbit (a weed that grows here in abundance and is really so pretty.  It seemed like a grace because we really don't do anything to get it, it just comes up on its own.  2. Music/piano.  I love music and I want to start practicing it more so I'll be more graceful with my piano playing.  3. Exercise.  To be more graceful in general.  4. A page from my planner.  I've started trying to write things down more and keep track of my days better.  5. You can't see it, but there's a picture of my family there, something I am very thankful for. 6. The Grace necklace my friend gave me for this year.  It reminds me to have more grace. 7. More flowers coming up.  In addition to the flowers being a grace, the fact that they are here in February is amazing and something I'm very thankful for.  They're very early this year, but it's been so warm and wet here that they're growing.  This summer it was so miserable and dry the plants all died, so this is especially a grace! 8. Doing things for others.  I made the baby things laying there. 9. This one is for friends and for traveling, since I'm with a friend somewhere away from home.  I'm thankful for both those things. 
So that's my prompt.  I had fun doing it.  Grace is going well this month.  I hope you have all had a lovely month and hopefully I'll be on here more in March. 
The Blog Hop officially starts at 10 PST, so I think this is a tad early, but have fun hopping!

  2. Beth love your photos. I am intrigued by the Henbit, I have never heard of it before. Nice to have a weed that looks so marvellous! Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. It is fun to have the Henbit here. I have to admit, it wouldn't make a nice cut flower, but when they're outside they're lovely. A house down the street has their yard full of them this year and from a distance, it looks like a field of lavendar. :-)

  3. I need you to come and play so I can sing! I want to sing more (an area to CULTIVATE, my OLW!), but I don't play so well. I can play enough to be able to keep the tune, but it's not graceful by any means!!
