On A Gloomy Day...

 What's needed is some light and warmth.  These daffodils are from our garden, and were picked by Sarah for me the other day.  They add a sweet sunny touch by the sink.  Makes doing dishes and clean up much nicer.


 Not to be outdone, Kyle picked some as well, and they are on our kitchen table.  I love the way my kids show me love and that they are thinking of me throughout the day.  They know I love flowers and wanted to surprise me!


 Usually we eat these clementines around Christmas but a box of California Cuties were just the thing for some Vitamin C this week.  These are so tasty!


 The bookcase at the end of the hallway.  I love to use my oil lamps and it adds a touch of warmth and light on a gloomy day.


 Can you see the raindrops splattering in the bird bath?


 Lavender scented candle - my friend Becky makes the most delightful soy candles.  You can find her Etsy store here
