"I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about,
I feel good, in a special way.
I'm in love and it's a sunny day.
Good Day sunshine!"
LENNON, JOHN WINSTON / MCCARTNEY, PAUL JAMES
The invigorated bit may also stem from the fact that I have NFW (No Flippin' Work) for the next week. (excuse I whilst I dance a little jig, let off party poppers, streamers and put out brightly coloured bunting!).
Isn't it lovely to wake to the sun streaming in through your bedroom window? I certainly think that the bright mornings have mood enhancing properties.
Here's some things that made me smile today-
Sunshine cracking the flags -
Elevenses in my studio!
My Grand Calibur diecutting machine - and a bit of random heat embossing whilst my coffee cooled ....
All controlled by men of a certain age ...
Intrigued bystanders ...
Sunshine sparkles on the water ... (shame about the rubbish tho. Grrr!)
Smiling teenagers (oh you have no IDEA how happy this makes me!)
Families in the park, doing their family things...
The constants in my garden which disappear and reappear with gratifying regularity....
|Dicentra (photobombed by a marauding gang of dandelions)|
|Aquilegias - they spring up in the same place every year no matter how many times I try to move them!|
They've lived here longer than I have. Perhaps I should have learned my lesson by now eh?
|Japanese quince - the flowers are very much hiding their light under a bush(el).|
I hope your Saturday is giving you something to smile about.
With Love -x-
“Spring drew on...and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.”
