It's been a rainy weekend.
Went to bed last night to the sound of rain on the rooftop.
Woke up this morning to more rain on the rooftop.
While I'm loving this rain for the benefits it brings to the garden, it is making it a bit dark & dreary inside the house.
Since the sun doesn't want to shine outside, I'm going to do what I can to make it shine inside. I'll start by lighting some little lamps here and there. A yellow candle with a lemon scent will surely add to the sunny atmosphere I'm trying to create.
As my brownies are baking in the oven and my chicken dinner is bubbling away in the crock pot, I have a few minutes to set out a few touches of Spring cheer. The sunny yellow forsythia wreath adds a bright spot to a corner of the family room on this gray day.
When I began this post I wasn't planning to literally bring the sun in, but a funny thing happened when I brought the pansies in. The sun came pouring through the window and it hasn't quit since.
Happy Sunny Sunday!!
If the sun isn't shining at your house, try making your own. You never know it just might work.
