It's the little things

In my current fast-forward pace of life, some days the littlest of things make all of the difference. With the hectic craziness that has defined the last several weeks around here, I sometimes feel like I have lost control. Like I'm being pulled under the wave that is crashing over me. Sure I make it through each day. But some days require a small triumph on my part just to make it feel like perhaps I do maintain some control.

So, this little thing is my triumph for today. Nothing major but enough to put a huge smile on my face. I had an idea, came up with a plan, executed the plan and had successful results. ::sigh:: Sometimes that is all it takes.

Even little Jezebel marveled at my triumph.

All rolled up and snapped tight. Order among chaos. Perhaps I can use it to measure the length of time until life returns to the slow and boring pace that I so prefer.

What a great idea! I have my mom's measuring tapes and a new bunch of embroidered trims. I think they need to meet.

..thanks for your compliments of my new pillow. I added another photo to the post to answer the "why doesn't it fit in?" question I was getting. I seem to have forgotten no one has actually been in my house. :)

Love your photography. I could get lost in some of those pictures. And the measuring tape is b.r.i.l.l.i.a.n.t.
