An Ordinary Linky Party About What's Extraordinary - My First Attempt At A Linky Party!

As I was making dinner the other night, I was appreciating some of the  ordinary things in my house that I see every day, and I wanted to share them with my blogging buddies.  So I decided that if I'm appreciating something I see every day, then you probably are, too.  Here are 3 things that I'm loving lately:

1.  Argula/Watermelon/Feta Salad with Maple Vinaigrette

This salad is so delicious and captures the flavors of summer.  I've been making every week of summer vacation, and I don't mind making this salad.  (Making salad is not fun for me - too much cutting and chopping.)

2.  My painting of the Ghost of Paul Revere

I got this painting for my 50th birthday party from my family.  It hangs in my kitchen right near my seat - we have assigned seats at our kitchen table.  The artist - Tim Murley - actually was surprised that someone would want to buy this painting, but my daughter explained how I teach 3rd grade and love Massachusetts history.

Check out some of  this artist's  other art at:

3.  My Wall Hanging Map of the USA

This is hanging in my mudroom which is the first room you enter in the house.  I love how this map is so colorful, and I love looking at all the states and seeing how big and faraway a lot of them are.

What would your share?

I would also appreciate feedback/suggestions, too.  My email is:

I hope you'll consider taking part - thank you!
