Sun and Flowers and Famiy Time

Sun, Flowers, and Family Time

Bright!  Sunny!  Warm...actually Hot!  This was the backdrop of my day.  The scenery to my play.

Much of my day was lazy and slow.  I watched my husband work his muscles to the bone fixing the deck stairs and taking care of the landscaping needs.  Also, spent a lot of time watching with the kids running about in the sprinkler and having a water balloon "fight".  I would carry my books, chair, and glass of ice tea around following them from backyard to the front.  It warms my heart to see them enjoying each other and being in the sunny outdoors.

On a whim, I did finally manage to get to the local greenhouse and scoop up some perennials for the front gardens.  That felt good and I can hardly wait to get them in the ground and enjoy the color scheme (reds, yellow, and a touch of purple - thanks to the fragrant Lavender!).  The family the company of a family friend we haven't seen in several weeks!  She brings a positive vibe and wonderfully funny sense of humor.  It truly added some joy to our sunny day! 

Looking back on the day, I don't feel particularly productive but I do feel relaxed and warmed from the sun!  I feel warmed from the sight of my children playing and my husband taking such good care of our abode. 

Today I am Grateful for my whim of a day!  Our family, just the four of us, enjoying a sunny day together and having it ebb and flow so nicely.  We all got to do something we enjoyed without it being at the expense of someone else.  Not all days are like this! 


  1. Glad to see you back on Theresa. I've been so bad the past couple months myself, but plan on a big come back in August, catching up my blog. I hope to see more posts and pictures soon.

  2. Realize, feel, express and share your gratitude for all major areas of life: Family and Friends, Health, Spirituality, and Work. Appreciate the “small” things in life such as a sound sleep, sunny day, safe commute to work, your favorite song, etc. Challenge and expand your awareness of the great deal of things we receive every day and you will see a different world.
