Sublimely Eclectic on a Beautiful Sunday

in beautifulsunday •  last year 



Dress it up with a little sunshine today. While the soft, gentle wind blows you all the way through life, let's celebrate the small, sweet moments in between life and living.

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable” Joseph Addison

Can it be a #BeautifulSunday if all you do it the needful? Cleaning and cooking and tidying the garden? I think so. It gives me great satisfaction knowing that my life is reasonably in order and so, the rest of the week will be smooth sailing.



“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
Frederick Keonig

When memories start to fade, clip them back a bit... then provide food and water to the "cutting" while it is establishing roots.

Today is a perfect day for a perfect day! I've said this before, but, when it is full and unavoidably true, it requires to be said again and again.


You're beautiful. Can't you see?

In that place of love, the one perceived, it matters not, what you believe. The story fits in a layer of truth, in the pages of strength, to give and receive. And then.

I have to wonder

Why logic is no answer for passion and all the while, I wrap my heart with a ribbon of desire.

If ever a moment shall present itself
Silent you should be
Your gentle touch only serves to remind
Of a love that shall never be

Today is a #BeautifulSunday by @Ace108, where we share our day in the most possibly beautiful way that we can. So toiling about the house, and the flowers and we can call it a day, a definitely #SublimeSunday in the making, by the Meister of my morning, @c0ff33a. I do love my @c0ff33 and he likes eclectic! A match made in heaven.

A smoothie! Who wants a smoothie? Raise your hand. Raise it high!


I have always loved fruits and vegetables, even juicing them to get the full nutritional value of everything that I grow, pick or buy. Waste not, want not, am I right? It was in juicing that I learned I could eat the skin of the kiwi. Who knew? Not this girl. This nutrient-packed delight is already on the good deal list of fruits. But, did you realize that by eating the skin, you triple your fiber intake? But, hey! If you peel it, you still get a healthy dose of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, and potassium. You are welcome. Very. Admittedly, it is a cleaning-cooking-getting- ready-for-the-next-week-kind-of-day. Le sigh. Truly.



And just because this is so eclectic (It's true!!) we are going to do a refrigerator check! Okay... you know the drill!!! Open up wide and take a picture! That always keeps me honest on the junk I put in it. I just finished shopping the other day, so it has awesome yumminess still inside!

Flowers. There must always be flowers to color my world. I also dedicate this same picture to #SundayPurple (ish) by @Kalemandra, who colors my world every single day!

I knew before I saw you
Your touch would start my turn
From the bottom to the top
To a place I can breathe
Once, all over again

With you, but alone
The night almost gone
I know how I feel
Getting off this spinning wheel
Again, all over again

And just like that, these musings are done. I want to thank @ace108 and @c0ff33a for hosting these challenges and just so you know, although much sun and shine was used up today, I can guarantee that there is still a little left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day!

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post, again and again. In the game of life, my friends, pondlife is at least a little further up the evolutionary chain than the insult - pond scum. Keep it classy, people. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.


I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

Looking into your fridge is like looking into my wardrobe everything in place and all neatly stacked just love it and all your flower photos are just stunning :)

Oh wow! That makes me feel better knowing that you are neat and organized! You are going to make someone a most excellent wife someday.

I can't actually believe that I said that to you! And of course, I am kidding, and I cannot help but be a little bit impressed. Thank you so much for your kind words as always.

I wish you a most wonderful week ahead!

You know my first wife kicked me out because i was to neat and tidy she couldn't handle it...lol...they use to complement her for having such a tidy house in and out but it was all me my mum taught me well...hehe :)

You have a lovely week ahead also my friend and thanks for your generous tip :)

Waving my hand frantically I want a smoothie with that fresh fruit Ohh yes and I want it now LOL

as always such gorgeous shots and I hope you had a good weekend and managed to catch up with Market Friday :)

I was up late last night (read: early morning) until I finished so that it wouldn't drag over into next week. I love reading them all and people really put out a lot of effort putting together these posts. (as you know from firsthand experience)

Oh, yes! The fresh fruit is surely so tempting for a smoothie, isn't it? Coming right up!!!

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello and I hope this week is going to be awesome!!!

Thank you for being an active member and great Guide for #SteemUSA!!

!tip .20

There are many who do not read all of peoples post but I know you do and respond with thought and kindness, so I know how time consuming it must be going through all the Market Friday posts but i also know that people really appreciate your thoughtful comments so it is time well spent

glad you managed to catch up :)

Funny enough, it is not only MarketFriday, but, posts in general. It is embarrassing to have people come over all the time and not have the time to go over and read theirs. It is almost insulting, in my opinion.

So, I am trying to get around a little more, but, it is another really busy week. Boo-hoo.

Don't they know I need to steem??? ;)

But, MarketFriday is caught up, so there is that! :)

Well its greta you are caught up with Market Friday, and I know what you mean, I feel the same way iof someone visits Ime I feel I have to go and see if they have posted.
Sorry you have a busy week ahead isnt it so inconsiderate how our employees expect us to make work a priority during worker hours and often beyond working hours

Beautiful photography. I wish more people to include myself could learn to be mindful and calm. That's the vibes your posts brings. And just airmail a chilled container with a smoothie, you can do that right? ;) JK.
the more colors in your diet in regards to fruits and veggies the better. :)

Thank you so much, Chelsea. I think that my day goes much better when I am Mindful and come. It just sets the tone for the whole day and for the whole week actually. I am glad that that's the vibe that you get. One airmail coming right up! oh yes! I love to Color My World, especially with fruits and veggies. And maybe a couple flowers. Have an awesome week!

@dswigle - I can always count on your posts for uplifting and good cheer! See me waving my hand for a smoothie - those ingredients look heavenly. And OMG, your refrigerator is perfect, I'm so jealous impressed!

That actually makes me so happy to hear you say that! And just for that I am sending you to smoothies! The refrigerator is a no-brainer because I use the containers from BJs to put things in and keep it organized. Then they stack nicely. Try It, You'll see how easy it is! Have a most wonderful week ahead! And as always thank you for stopping by.

Ok I am so jealous of that shiny fridge. In my family everybody puts everything in a mess after using it.
Great flowers on a beautiful Sunday

Oh, don't be so jealous. It took me years to figure out that I did better if I organized it. Less waste and more vision to see what I have inside. My family was pretty messy until I started keeping it in containers and then they were forced to keep it organized.

I want to thank you so much and I wish you a most wonderful day.

🙋‍♀️ Me, 🙋‍♀️ me, 🙋‍♀️ me!!!! I want a smoothie! Hahaha! 😂 We don't have kiwis here. Oh! I would love that in my smoothie. But actually, I had my dragon fruit smoothie.

I love your quote about Frederick Keonig. That's very true. The secret to happiness is being appreciative and a grateful heart. Without it, we can never be happy.

Thank you for your thoughful words. Doing the things you love makes the world beautiful.

Have a beautiful, beautiful Sunday, Denise! 💕

Oh my God! Well you know that I'm jealous now! Dragon fruit is so delicious and it's very hard to come by here. Well at times it is I should say.

Isn't it so true though? Sometimes we forget to be grateful for what we have without a grateful heart, what do we really have? I think that everybody would be happier if they were doing the things that they love instead of doing the things that they must. My Sunday was beautiful and I hope that yours was too. As always thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello, leaving your kind words behind.

Hahaha! We live in the other side of the world, so there are fruits also that only thrive in this part of the world. What is abundant here may be rare to you, and vice versa.

I totally agree, as they say, if you love your work, it feels like you're not working at all. Hehehe! 😁

Enjoy your day.

Oh, no! I bounced the tip but went to the bank and put more money in!! Let us try this again!! 💕

The second picture is more beautiful than the one you have in your cover

Oh no I'm going to have to look at when I put for the second picture oh yes, I quite agree. I am not sure why I chose the order in which I did but I am very much in favor of the second one myself. The funny thing is I have used it before and it was not received very well so I have been hesitant to use it again. Thank you so much for your kind words and I wish you a most wonderful day.

O.M.G. Your fridge is so organised! There is always something falling out of my fridge every time I open it! I absolutely will not take a picture of that for anyone! LOL!

Seriously!! If it is falling out, you probably have too much food in it! LOL Pretty please! Now, I need to see it! :)

Thanks for being a good sport and I hope you have a great week ahead!

Ooh the sunflower is stunning, I wish it was sunny like that right now. And the yellow and orange flower looks like it is on fire - stunning! I have heard @old-guy-photos is a bit of a smoothie but I could be a rumour. No fridge shots I’m afraid, mine is full of bacon, chicken a hint of salad and many drinks - apple juice, a hint of soda and maybe a few Budweiser for when the sun is shining !COFFEEA
