On the Hunt for Joy Challenge – Flowers

Like Cee whose latest On the Hunt for Joy Challenge is Put Flowers next to your bed, I do not appreciate cut flowers indoors. They usually set off my allergic rhinitis.

However we do grow flowering houseplants including the orchid which featured in an earlier post for Cee’s challenge. We have had the orchid in this post much longer. It was a gift from a friend a few years ago. It has been in flower for months already this year and the flowers have not begun to drop yet.


On the Hunt for Joy: Rediscover your childhood joys

After a break I am back with a post for Cee’s On the hunt for joy challenge – Rediscover your childhood joys

I have always enjoyed reading and still have many of my childhood books and the musical instruments I began to learn to play as a child.

Like Cee I enjoyed colouring as a child. I didn’t find it easy to be neat. I remember my Grandad showing me how to colour shapes with circular strokes of the pencil.

No words on this spread – other pages have Bible verses to colour

Now I enjoy colouring Images of Joy by Jacqui Grace – appropriate for this challenge. I put tissue paper between the pages to stop the colour being transferred to the opposite page. The pencils I use are blendable.

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge – Week 22 – Mix play with everyday

Cee Neuner’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge this week is Mix play with everyday

A pile of games and a dictionary

Almost every day Hubby and I play games and solve puzzles together. The board* games we play most frequently are in the picture. Triominos is another favourite. We haven’t played the one in the biggest box for a long time. Perhaps it should have a new home out of sight.

*Rummikub and Triominos do not have a board, but they are similar traditional games not requiring electricity!
