Today...

(My pink Schwinn Cruiser...:-)

It has been a day of joy...A little sitting out on the lawn in the early morn, sipping coffee, listening to the songbirds...bare toes tickled by the dew damp grass. A little shopping with my honey for new art supplies and a little fresh inspiration...a little meandering about town with my little girl (who is quite suddenly turning ten next weekend, and not so little!)

It has been an afternoon of sweltering heat...a hint of mugginess...telling me that mama nature should delight us with a beautiful light show tonight. I find summer thunderstorms so romantic...

It has been an afternoon of wandering through my yard looking for those little bits of ordinary magic that I sometimes forget about...those little hidden nooks where maybe fairies choose to dwell...



Little places where the light dances...



Oh, and I'm almost finished this...



and working on this...



I've been all about watercolours lately. I'm loving them!


Yes...it has just been one of those rare,perfect days...



and I hope you are having a perfect day today too...:-)

Today is very good! I love your bike, and I soooo love watercolors. I have been dabbling in my watercolors all day, along with some other creativity.

Enjoy your thunderstorm.

Oh, your baby is almost into double digits!!! They grow up way too fast, don't they?

Your day sounds pretty wonderful to me, and, yes, I'm with you re: loving summer thunderstorms, and, btw, beautiful bike & beautiful watercolors!

Beautiful!!! Just reading this made my shoulders relax and put a smile on my face!

I love the frog picture. My grandpa ALWAYS told me, "Before you meet the handsome prince, you have to kiss a lot of frogs" and that reminds me of that - giggle!

Thunderstorms!! YES - love them....especially those wild ones that come upon us during a humid day.

I SO SO wish Victoria got more thunderstorms...I think they are romantic too. But I was lucky enough to see some dazzling lightning displays while I was in France this summer! I bet you get some amazing storms where you are.
