The Daily Frame : February 6 2015

"Every second brings a new beginning. Every hour holds a new promise. Every night our dreams bring hope. Every day is what you choose to make it."  

 

It's hard to stay inspired in the winter months. However I don't want to wish away the days ahead waiting for Spring.  So we find new things around us to keep us going and the keep the days enjoyable.  That's what this week was all about.  Hope you enjoy reliving my first week of February!

“All of us need to be in touch with a mysterious, tantalizing source of inspiration that teases our sense of wonder and goads us on to life’s next adventure.” ~Rob Brezsny

"Oh! where do fairies hide their heads,
When snow lies on the hills,
When frost has spoiled their mossy beds,
And crystallized their rills?"
~Thomas Haynes Bayly

 

(There are many images from this moment.  They are in a separate blog.  After you go thru this blog circle, I'd love for you to swing back through and check them out!)

“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'

'Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit.

'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.'

'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?'

'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.” 
~Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

George has "become".

“We're so busy watching out for what's just ahead of us that we don't take time to enjoy where we are.” ~Bill Watterson

A night out! The kids wanted to try on our ensembles. My little girl wanted to know if Mommy and Daddy were going to get "maaaweed"....I guess we better get dressed up and go out more often!

"Beautiful soup, so rich and green
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful soup! 
Beautiful soup! Who cares for fish
Game, or any other dish? 
Who would not give all else for two
Pennyworth of beautiful soup?"
~Lewis Carroll, ‘Alice in Wonderland’

And this dainty certainly stoops for soup....

Oh Meagan, Every week I just love your photos and the quotes you put with them add to them so nicely. I love the one of your daughter walking on the street and the one with her and the powder puff. So beautiful!
