keep your face toward the sunshine

i don't think i could ever have too much sunshine in my life. my mood, my outlook, my work ethic, even my hair, are all better on sunny days. the breakfast nook in my new place is all windows and i love watching the sun slant thru, creating artful shadows and spots of yummy brightness.

my plants are all sighing in contentment these days as winter has finally given up and allowed spring to ease into place. i can't recall a tougher winter or a more welcome spring. as with many things in life, it is easy to say winter wasn't really that bad now that spring is on the cusp.

 soon my doors and windows will be thrown open to warm breezes and bird song. my heart will be singing along with joy.

i started some spinach and lettuce seeds indoors and move this $5 mortar mixing tub from lowe's from one sunny spot to another. it's time to move it outside and let these yearning plants grow tall and strong. just like me, they seek a warm spot in the sun.

"keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you." walt whitman

turn it up loud and drink it in, my friends!

Wonderful, wonderful pictures, Julie. It's been a while since I've visited your cozy home...and you would know me by a different name. My life has changed so much but now I'm in a good and SAFE place.

I'm looking forward to catching up with you and your art, life, etc. :)

So glad you are back to your blog, Julie. I love your sweet home. While it is officially spring here, it is still unseasonably cold and not at all sunny enough for me, yet, so I am envious of you and your many beautiful plants right now. Peace and sunshine!
