It's Gonna Be A Bright Bright Sunshiney Day

It's been a long cold winter. One that probably isn't even over yet. We've had multiple snow storms, some counties in Washington State have been declared disaster zones, and of course the rains that are normal to this part of the country have made their presence known as well. It's been gloomy and dark and yucky here for the past few months. And my kids have spent most of the time cooped up in the house. It seems that the snow is only fun for the first few days. Not so much fun after a few weeks.

So today a strange thing happened. A brightness and dryness that I thought was only in my imagination. It was sun! It hasn't rained for two days.

I hear lawnmowers in my neighborhood.

My kids played outside.

I washed my windows. Seriously. I WASHED MY WINDOWS!

I've been going through my seeds, getting ready to start them indoors in our huge sunny window seat.

Isn't it amazing how a little sunshine can make life look a whole lot better?

It is Feb 20th and you hear lawnmowers? :-( I expect we're going to hear snow blowers tomorrow in Massachusetts. 38 degrees today. Sigh....

Enjoy the sunny day and I hope many more are to follow!

Amen! I have been relishing the sun and the warmth recently myself. I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt and get things planted.
Something about seeing and feeling the sunshine brings us to life just as much as the rest of God's creation! :)

It's been really cold here, but the sun has been shining. It truly does make all the difference....although it does not inspire me to actually clean the windows; it just makes me feel guilty that they're not clean. Just sayin'. ;)
