Winter Sunshine . . .


I received this award the other day from Patsy at
Thanks so much Patsy for being a great blog friend!
I enjoy reading your comments each day!


Thanks to all the friends who stopped by on Wednesday & gave me some ideas for Grandpa & Grandma names! I'll let you know what we decide soon!



Yesterday I ventured out to do a little shopping therapy at Dollar Tree. What a gorgeous day! Not a cloud in the sky. Temperature mid 50s.

Later on, around 5:45 I noticed how comforting & warm the sunshine was streaming into the house. I snapped these pictures.





Arched window . . .


Corner in the dining room . . .
The clock is broken, the time is
actually 5:50 . . .


Kitchen table . . .

The days are getting longer . . .

Each day we gain 2 minutes of daylight . . .

Spring will begin in about 2 months . . .

I love the sunshine, but . . .

I still long to see a beautiful snow . . .

It was beautiful yesterday..supposed to be even warmer today. Time to open windows for a little while. :)

Oh I love the arched window. At first I thought that was something hanging on your wall.

I know what you mean about the snow, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I love the sunshining into the windows. Great pictures! I noticed on your profile you are from Oklahoma. I have many ties to Oklahoma. My dad was born there and so were my in-laws. My husband's folks go to Oklahoma for a month every year visiting family and friends.

Hi Carol...pretty photos! I love to have the sun shining into the house in the winter. The cats love it, too! But...we still have not had one snowflake!! I need at least a dusting of snow before Spring! Have a great day...Debbie
