I was always a HUGE John Denver fan. Oh, I think I've mentioned that before!! It's actually where the name of my blog came from....via my daughter.
But he had it right, didn't he? Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy. Really happy.
One of the things that I absolutely fell in love with when I first toured my new home was the sunlight streaming in the windows. It was a very cold day in early November when I first came to see the house yet the sun was shining so brightly through the windows making the whole place so warm and welcoming.
This morning the sun was beaming down on the deck causing steam to rise from the heavy dew that had settled on everything overnight. It was a glorious sight.
The sun shone down on my garden cottage, seen through my bedroom window as I was making the bed.
The front windows get the most sun in the mornings...the new windows will be installed next week which will be great for energy efficiency but unfortunately I'm losing a few inches of sunshine on either side.
Just look at the way the sun streams across the room. How can that not make a person happy in the mornings?
I'm not the only one who cherishes the morning sunshine!
What a cutie. My little Daisy. Also known as the Monkey.
I guess Duckie loves the sunshine also!
The dining room table is starting to get decked out for fall....the warm glow and the pop of orange really brings a cozy energy to the room, perfect for this transitional season.
My newest happy place. I love sitting here in the mornings with a cup of coffee for a little quiet time before the day starts.
The lower level gets great sunshine also, which is a huge plus! This plant is so very happy on this windowsill...I don't have the heart to move it to let in even more light!
I hope you found something that made you happy this morning also, my friends!
