A beautiful sunny day after all. A late start to the day, but once on the road, it was lovely. The further from the busy pace of the city we got, the calmer I felt. With nothing really planned, it was nice to wander towards where we wanted to visit, but with no real need to be there, we could enjoy the ride.
The fields are bare, barren, trees are waking up, but there are still no buds in sight. Other years we would have seen some sign of new activity, not so this year. Low lying fields are damp, wet and in some places completely covered over by water. I looked for animals, but except for a few sheep, resting in the sunshine on higher ground, there wasn’t much to see.
I did find a large quantity of a full range of colour in acrylic spools of yarn, and the needles to work with them. Have I a clue on what to do with them, no. If anyone out there knows, I’d love to hear from you. I was smitten by the colours and the prospect of doing something artistic with them.
My husband sighed quietly when I climbed back into the truck with my little one… “I thought you said, you weren’t going to start collecting dolls” the dear man, it wasn’t a question, he shook his head.. He didn’t say it, but he was thinking.. he hoped this phase will be short and sweet, he really is the VERY BEST. =^_^=
There was much more we explored and experienced, it was simply one of the nicest of days.. I came home content with my “treasures” .. I had done the background for the flowers before we left. After supper, the flowers magically appeared, it was 1,2,3, et voila, I was smiling. I liked what I saw. =^_^=
Every day won’t be like today, but the happy days, out number the “gray” days. The minister in NY. wrote that we need to apply ourselves more to “living like the sun” PL Precept # 8. I agree, and will try hard to practice being more cheerful, and to see the world through fresh eyes every day when I wake.
Happy Sunday everyone.. The forecast calls for blue skies with a lot of sunshine. Enjoy!
