A Very Merry Day

Dear Reader,

Just when we thought we couldn't take another rainy/snowy day,

When the old pickup was losing its appeal as a getaway spot. . . .
When even our beloved books all but lost their charm . . .

When there weren't any more new species of half-cat/half-chair to discover,

Things warmed up and we could play outside!

It was even warm enough for the first outdoor bath of the year (And also necessary, since some of us were mud-encrusted!). . .

Although one at a time DOES fit better in the tub!

And before we knew it, the day was over, and we fell asleep sunburned but happily dreaming of our day in the sun!

We hope your day was as wonderful, too! Thank you for the sweet birthday comments, one and all.



p.s. Did you know that sunshine is necessary for good digestion? And, according to Dr. Christopher, the sun does not actually CAUSE cancer, it only draws cancer to the surface. But, like the good Dr. says, moderation in all things! Sunburns still hurt!


No Rainbow

By Christina G. Rossetti

If all were rain and never sun,
No bow would span the hill;
If all were sun and never rain
There'd be no rainbow still!

  2. Dear Marqueta,

    What a joyful day you and your lovely family had...

  3. Marqueta, what precious pictures! I loved seeing a bit of your day!


  4. I think the pics of children in the tub would be perfect to frame and hang in the bathroom! I, too, am thankful for the return of sunshine!
