i'll follow the sun

 I have been busy for a couple of days running errands and catching up on all those little household chores that never seem to get done. The weather is cool, gray, and windy here and as I hurried to my car this morning I wondered where the sun has gone and wherever it is I want to follow it. It reminded me of one of my favorite Beatles' songs and I have been singing it all day. As much as I am sure you would love my rendition, I thought you might enjoy their's more.


I think I will fix myself a cup of hot chocolate, light a sweet candle, and take a little break to start on the new M.C. Beaton book I found at the library today. 


It is the latest in her Agatha Raisin mystery series. If you haven't ever read any of her books and you like mysteries and love to laugh give them a whirl. You won't be disappointed. 

Oh, and I must share a wonderful giveaway today. Head on over to Camp and Cottage Living for a chance to win this gorgeous bracelet and more.



And if you aren't already a follower of her wonderful blog, I'm sure you will want to become one.

Full disclosure. I am not being compensated by anyone (but if anyone out there would like to compensate me, please feel free to do so, although I do have a relative minor list of things I am not willing to do)

  2. You should come here! The sun is here in Brittany, or rather was there until 4 pm... It's rather windy and stormy now, but the weather forecast had said we'd had a tempest during the weekend and tempest on the North Coast where I am can be ugly!

  6. You can never go wrong with a beetles song! That's a good one. Your teacup candle looks so pretty burning. It has been cold and windy here this weekend too. The sun did shine though. Glad that you're making the most of your grey weather there.

  7. Now that song is in my head! LOL! I had a nice sunny day, but tonight I'm about to curl up with the latest mystery in Julie Hyzy's series about the White House Chef! It's a fun series for sure. I must admit to not being an Agatha fan...oh well. Hope you have a great Sunday!
