F Simple and Serene Living: if i could i would 09 10

if i could i would


If I could wrap today up and tie a big shiny bow around it I would. 

I would save it for next week when the highs will be back in the fifties and sixties.


Or better yet I would send it off to those of you who are still dealing with ice and snow. 

Today was a gift. A gift of summer. A gift of 81 degrees with a warm breeze and the sun bursting out of a perfectly blue sky. 


It was a day I have dreamed about for months. A day that I wondered if it would ever get here. A day where you could sit and watch leaves and blossoms pop out. It was perfect. 



P.S. I did not get the piece of furniture I wanted at the auction. Unfortunately it was above my pay grade, but I know there is a perfect piece out there waiting for me.

  6. It's starting to warm up here - and the snow is melting - but there's still far too much white out there lol.
    This gives me hope - ( do you realize how lucky you are? )
    Thanks Laura :)

    1. I do realize how lucky I am to have this wonderful weather. I hope that your snow goes away quickly. I can remember spending time in Quebec during the summers when I was a child. It always seemed chilly even in July.

  10. I love this variety of daffs with the white! I'm so glad you got your nice warm day. It's exactly how I felt visitng wine country recently. I'm a heat lover too!

  11. Thank you for the beautiful bouquet of daffodils. They're my favorite because of their courage, the first flowers in my garden to come up after the snowbanks melt. Re. the auction - next time. :-) Enjoy your Thursday, Laura.
