Day 1799: New and Wonderful

Yesterday, I saw a new and wonderful sign,


a new and wonderful movie,


and new (to me) and wonderful children’s books.




Here are more new and wonderful photos from yesterday:






I am sorry whenever I temporarily lose the ability to notice the quietly profound, amazing, new and wonderful things around me. When that happens, I take another look, and there they are.

Last night, I watched the new and wonderful   50th Anniversary celebration of the Carol Burnett Show. Here’s the wonderful Sorry! skit from The Carol Burnett Show.

If you watch that skit, you’ll see that Vicki Lawrence says a new and wonderful line at 12:49.  I assume that because of Carol’s reaction and because of her wonderful response: “That’s a new one, Mama.”

What’s new and wonderful in your world?

Thanks to all who helped me create today’s new post and — of course! — to you, on this new and wonderful day.

  1. Hopper was very talented.

  2. Noticing the new and wonderful is a lovely intention for today. I’ll be borrowing it Ann. 💛

  3. I’ll keep my eyes open for new and wonderful things today, thanks to your sparkling reminder, Ann!

  4. It hasn’t rained for 2 days! (After 27 record-making days plus a few) That is new. And the cat I was sitting has gone home. That is new, though I miss her.

    I love Carol Burnett and will watch the clip as soon as my husband, who is beside me, is awake. Fifteen more minutes. Thanks!

  5. The Case Of The Stinky Stench written by Josh Funk is one of many new and wonderful things here, although the contrast between the new and wonderful and old and wonderful reminds me of something I thought while watching Carol Burnett’s 50th anniversary last night. She has a genius for timeless comedy.

  6. Loved the clip and some things are new and wonderful some are new and crappy

  7. For me everyday is a new and wonderful day, just that some days are betterer than others.

  8. Oh my. “Somebody blew out your pilot light” is almost as good as “splinters in the windmills of your mind.” Thanks for the laugh!!

  9. I’m so glad you recommend “Coco”, Ann! I want to see it!
