"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

I'm on my second cup of coffee...

...I was awakened uncharacteristically early this morning by a glow coming from outside my bedroom window.  As I have said before our property backs up onto a two-lane road that is quite busy in the mornings.   I hesitated to get up, longing to roll over and return to blissful sleep, but was drawn back to the window with curiosity.  As I approached the window I could detect a warm familiar feeling buried deep in my soul.  As I cautiously opened the shades I realized that warm-glow was sunshine!  Lovely, beautiful, healing, life-giving sunshine.   It was going to be a good day and quite honestly...my coffee agreed...

On another note, this is a picture of a rather non-descript wall in my dining room.  There are three others just like it, with the exception of a window.  Tomorrow I will show you what I did to cheer up this sad wall, without using paint or spending more than $20.  Shop the house, you never know what you will find.  Until  then...

google images...not my wall

Don't forget the Spring-fling giveaway!  Only two more days to go...here!


  1. Is that a little heart I see in your coffee? How sweet!
    Glad the sunshine is there for you. Hope you spent the day soaking in the warmth.

  2. I am having a very hard time reading your font. I am not sure why but it seems all messed up to me. Let me know if it is my eyes or the font. I do have eye troubles...

    God Bless~

  3. Jojo, I got to go for a walk with one of my kiddo's at school today, can you believe it, in the 'SUN'!!! So I know exactly how wonderful you felt, seeing the flicker of that bright elusive orb through your shades! It's been a long time coming! xo Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

    ps, your font is fine for me, I had trouble with another one of my friends blogs, and would have to read hers with foxfire!

  4. look at that little heart! awwww...what a sweet little gift to start the day!
