Reveling in the Weekend.....

Ah, Saturday......where have you been?  I've been waiting for you all week.....waiting to snuggle back under the covers and sleep in. 

And, here you are, in all your cloudy, overcast glory!  It doesn't matter that the sun isn't shining at the moment because the gray skies encouraged me to stay in bed a bit longer this morning.  Your mild temps have dictated that I wear flip flops and my "Kiss me, I'm magically delicious" t-shirt for St. Patrick's Day.  

I'm so glad you are here.  I'm going to use you wisely....breathing deeply and listening to birdsong outside my open windows.  Perhaps today will be the day that the kitchen shelf goes up and my cookbooks find their new home.  Perhaps this afternoon will be spent sitting on a mat in the front flowerbed, pulling grass runners and weeds from the moist soil.  And perhaps a trip to the garden center to browse through the colorful rows of new bedding plants is in order.  

Whatever the day holds, I embrace it all! 

Happy St. Patrick's Day to each and every one of you, whether you claim Irish ancestry - or not!!!  Just enjoy the day....

"This is the day which the LORD has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it."


  1. I love the overcast sky and mild weather today! I believe your blog has inspired me to open my windows and enjoy the day as well. :)

    1. Go for it, Amber! It feels so wonderful with everything opened up. I hear a neighbor's lawn mower and it sounds heavenly!

  2. Whatever you have chosen to do, it will be a great day. Take it slow, rest, snuggle down, relax and enjoy.

  3. Sounds like a perfect day Jane. The weekends are best when there is nothing on the schedule, I can sleep in a little, and get some reading in :) Enjoy your lovely day!

  4. Hope you took the day to rejuvenate. Actually you took the entire weekend!

Capturing a Magical Light

After several gray days of frigid temperatures, along with a bit of ice and a flurry or two of snow, the sun shone brilliantly on New Year&...
