The name I chose for my blog waaaayyyy back in 2007 is The Happy Wonderer.


noun  1. a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable.

verb 1. desire or be curious to know something. 2. feel admiration and amazement; marvel.

Wonder is something I experience a lot in both the noun form and verb form. I’m happy to be a Wonderer.

Right now I’m wondering how everything will fit together for the upcoming wedding in just 11 day! We are waiting for the good times we’ll have with friends and family around this wonderful event.

Waiting for good meals and time together out on our deck after the wedding when company from hither and yon will linger on.

Soon this view is going to change as we are into another project at this old house to give us a little more privacy when we are on the deck. It won’t be until after the wedding that I’ll be able to share the photos of the latest do it yourself project!

Linking up with ABC Wednesday which was started by Mrs. Nesbitt and carried on by Roger and the ABC team! Thank you.

W is for wonder, wonderer, wondering, wonderful, waiting, and the wedding. Oh I should have showed you the Western boots that will play a huge part in the wedding, too.

  3. Wow, you started blogging way earlier than I did – I like the name – it has something mysterious:) Right before the wedding – so busy, but enjoy!

  4. I fell in love with your blog before I even read anything on it. The name is “Wonder-full”. (And your posts live up to the name.). Lots of fun things happening in the near future … Look forward to reading about them.

  5. I’ve always loved the name of your blog 😉
    The image of your patio is just lovely — so full of potential and anticipation for the guests to fill each seat and eat and drink and laugh together. Enjoy the wedding hubbub!

  6. Looks great there! Will you be able to stand that far away after you do your next project? Always a plan at your place!

  7. Funny, I always thought of wonderer as someone who wonders about things .. like how and why and when etc. I like how the name reminds me of the happy wanderer as in, I love to go a wandering … =) …
    Love that photo of your back porch. It looks so inviting.

  8. Oh, your house, yard, and deck look just terrific, Ellen!!! I love it all! Did you and your husband build the deck? If so, you did a great job. I know you’re thrilled about the wedding and really looking forward to it. We’ll look forward to a post on that afterwards. 🙂

    Thanks so much for your recent visit, Ellen. How sad that your pastor’s sister was killed by a shark in Hawaii. I truly love to look at the ocean, but I have no interest in going in the water anymore.

    Take care and have a good week!

    Warm hugs,


  9. So nice to see you today and I know you will get through the ‘wedding wonder’. And I’m looking forward to the next project completed. Your back yard looks so lovely and inviting. I used to think your blog was called ‘wanderer’. That’s too funny. I didn’t know you wondered.
