Things that are making me smile now.
I found this picture of me laying in my great-grandparents yard. I don't remember the picture being taken, but I remember the house and the porch where we would eat graham crackers and butter, or Lorna Doone cookies. I remember the smell of my Papa's cigar and the sound of the tea kettle whistling. Maybe that's where my love of tea originated from?
I just love the peaceful, carefree me in this picture. I thought I might need a little visual reminder of those times so I framed it and it now sits in my living room.
Bright yellow flowers.
I have to confess, I'm not really fond of the color yellow except when it's a coloring a flower. Then I love it. Sunny.
Feeding hungry teenage boys.
There is always a steady stream of teenagers running through my house. Saturday night I had 2 sleep over. They not only enjoyed a delicious dinner (Cheeseburger Pasta - recipe coming soon!) they also awoke, tousled hair and all, to the smell of chocolate chip pancakes and sausage.
In addition to teenage boys, I also love to feed the birds. Fat birds make me happy.
Enjoy your week!
