Whatsoever is Lovely Challenge-2022 Week 20

This challenge is simple: step back for a few minutes each week to find a lovely thing, a precious moment, anything you find lovely. Then post about it. You can just post a picture or you can go into detail and tell it as a reflection, story or poem.

It could be anything:

a smile…a rainbow…a flower…a kind act…a tasty treat

What was lovely in your life this week?

Lovely posts from last week

My lovely for this week

This past week I took a short trip with my father. We visited Hell’s Canyon, which is in a tri-state area including Washington, Oregon and Idaho. It is a very beautiful area along the Snake River. Our trip was on a jet boat that delivers mail to the remote area once a week. Here is a sampler from the journey.

And this is a quick smile for you:

An Idaho potato playing the piano. What’s he playing?

Answer: Hard rock!

Join in!

I will post once a week, Sunday at noon in Seattle (8pm GMT) is my goal, and put a list of posts from the previous week in it. Basically using the same method I do with the Pull up a Seat Challenge. Detailed instructions are on the page: Whatsoever is lovely blog challenge.

We live in a world that seems to value drama, anger, fear and violence. Being mean often passes for being smart. These are the things that “go viral”, magnified in the media. Sometimes, the things that really make life worth living are small and simple. They don’t make for good TikTok. This is a chance to share that type of moment from our lives.

  1. Thanks for the gentle reminder to share my birds today for whatsoever is lovely, XF! I can’t think of anything much lovelier than spring birds. Your boat trip along the Snake River in Hell’s Canyon looks awesome despite the weather. I shall have to google that and check it out!
