Nothing Profound, Just Beautiful Day

It was a day filled with one chore after another. Some were simple like repairing a birdhouse for spring. Others were tougher like cleaning the inside of the car and truck where Biscuit has shed, leaving fur that looks like a baby kitty curled up!!

But temps were perfect and the windows and doors could be open. Rugs were wiped...plants moved outdoors.

Although last night had a frost warning, I choose to believe the worst is over. I have onions and lettuce up in flower pots. Pansies were on sale this week, and although they aren’t my favorites for summer, they make good spring flowers and give me a little dash of color right now.

DH and I even had a tea break on the deck today. Now that was blissful …a promise of more to come.

I gathered Easter trinkets for mailing to the little grandsons. We took time out to do a funny for them. Instead of an Easter card, we will send an “original”!

Not all the problems of the world went away today, but for a while, sunshine made my own backyard feel like a slice of Heaven. I hope all you dear readers had even a few minutes of the same.

It doesn't get much more profound than a beautiful day.
And I hope many more of them come your way.

"Originals" are always better than store-bought cards.

You three masked folks are funny.

(And get a car dog "bed"--a large quilt/blanket that forms a "U", protecting the back of the front seat and the back seat from dog hair. It hooks onto the headrests--front and back. It launders up, and your car stays relatively clean.)

What a darling picture of the honey bunnies at your house. Today is supposed to be beautiful here. Can't wait to get outdoors.

You put a big smile on my face today. What a heavenly way to celebrate a lovely spring day. Love the photo of you three "bunnies."

You are an original!

What a great way to spend the day! I love the picture of Biscuit. May I use it for my blog's Pawsitive Pondering slideshow?

Beautiful picture of Biscuit and what a hoot of the three of you in your bunny masks. Just love it.

What a fun family picture!
Our dog Maggie is so jealous. At Christmas we all wore reindeer antlers for one of the family pictures, and Maggie's antlers stole the show!
