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

My lovely for this week
It’s still dark. Yet there were a few bright spots this week.
We went downtown on Monday to see the Gingerbread “Village”. This year was kind of meh. Probably due its the theme “Buzzing Back” which I gathered is the name of the latest Toy Story movie. Even so it is always interesting to see the creative use of gingerbread, icing, cookies and candy.
On the same outing we went to lunch at the Owl and Thistle.
I decided to declare my holiday Blender project that I told you about last week complete. Because I need to do some real world things instead of obsessing on the many little details that aren’t quite what I would like.
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.
