The calm after the storm

It is such a THRILL to see the sun shining this morning! I stumbled out of bed and ran to the window and there it was, Mr. Sun himself in all it's glory.

Not only are we enjoying abundant sunshine but the temperatures will be much warmer. I should really stay home and continue to clean and tidy up our still damp basement, but I hear the trees calling my name: "Come! they whisper, Play a while!" so, what choice do I have? I must rush and do as they say. I'm out the door and I'm singing!

"Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right..."

"Here comes the Sun" The Beatles

  4. What a happy post. Yes! The sun has come back into our days and the trees beckon attention. I do believe my garden is calling. Have a beautiful day!!

  5. I've been filling my lungs with the air. It smells like parsley somehow. I love this illustration. It feels like the day - like nature wants to have us come over again instead of stay away. Happy sunny day!

    Love, Katy

  6. You describe things so beautifully, Alina!

    Enjoy the sunshine. And the trees. Oh, how I love the trees :) My house backs onto a native bush. Simply gorgeous.

    Happy April :)

  7. Ah, you've got me singing, and the sun's gone down.

    Dear Jo,
    I went out to run some errands and thought of you and Ziggy. There was this lady and her cat on a leash taking a walk. They looked so happy! What a fun and incredible thing to teach them. Hope you had a great weekend xx
