One Cobble at a Time

Small Beautiful Things

Sandra Tayler's Journal

A cobble by itself is just a small stone, but when many of them lay together they create a path . My life is made up of many discrete parts. I have to find ways to fit them all into place so that I can continue to journey where I desire to go. This journal records some of the cobbles that create my path.

Small Beautiful Things

It was my intention to make at least one small thing beautiful today, but I discovered that once I began it was hard to stop at only one. So here is a short list of the small, intentionally beautiful things I did today.

I cut off six inches of my hair. At the length my hair was this means it feels worlds different to me and no one else notices much. Then I broke out the curling iron and fixed it nice instead of leaving it in a braid. I even put in earrings.

I folded laundry, making each fold precise and neat. I admired the stacks for a moment before putting them away.

Unable to find stationery at a store, I used my design tools to create some. My printer is only black and white, so I took colored pencil to the flowers. Then I wrote my Grandma a letter.

I made cookies, not just throw-the-batch-together cookies, but carefully-cream-the-butter-and-use-the-baking-stone cookies. When they came out of the oven I topped my hot cookies with vanilla ice cream and ate them.

Looked at my children and really saw them while listening to them.

Tomorrow I will find more small beautiful things.

  • I have a book called Home Comforts that is a huge encyclopedia of home cleaning, organizing, and decorating wisdom. There is much in the book about doing little things to create lovely spaces. My favorite thing in the book is where she tells you how to set up a comfy reading corner.

    I really need to get out of the pony tail rut with my hair. I am overdue for a trim. It makes SO much difference to have a fresh hair cut, even if you keep it long.
