This last bout of snow, rain, wind and hail had me thinking I couldn't stand one more day of winter. I want to garden! I want to wear sandals and paint furniture outside! I want to stop paying heating bills! I can't take any more!
Just when I hit my lowest ebb, I noticed the Forsythia branches I'd put in the tall vase were, at long last, blooming! ~
Add the packet of peas that I wish I was outside planting ~
Could I have found a nicer stick to use for a branch? No. It's a very special stick. You see, it's the last one my little dog snuck into the house. I found it after she passed away and, you know what, a stick didn't bother me in the house any more! It sits on the bookshelves and reminds me of all the hours I spent throwing them for the dog that never tired of chasing one.
The spring onions I potted have started to sprout and they go up on the sideboard. ~
Maeve, the sentry cat, draws me to the front door. Nothing moves on this property without her knowing about it. There's a parcel on the porch and what is inside?
It's the artwork I won from A Daily Cup Of Mrs. Olsen! Do pop over and pay her a visit. She's a lovely lady and has a great, weekly Link Up party. ~
How could you know I would need it today Jann? ~
I'll focus on her promise of sun ~
and the lyrics she added from another song. ~
At least in this part of the family room I can 'walk on sunshine' and get a little bit closer to feeling fine. ~
Thanks, Jann. I'm having a daily cup, surrounded by loveliness.
And..."Don't it feel good"!
