Smiling

Here are two things which have really made me smile this week, despite a number of things which have made me very sad …

L bought me a dozen red roses for our anniversary – not just any red roses, but my very favourite shade of red and my favourite kind of roses!

How can I not smile?!

I made my hubby a Cherry Pie!

I’ve cooked and baked many things for L, before and during our marriage, and one of the sung favourites has been a Cherry Pie! What’s not to love?!

I am told I inherited my Grandmother’s skill for pastry, so let’s bake!! 😀

What has made you smile this week?! 🙂

Sunshine coming my way!

The beginning of this year has thrown so many curve balls our way that I haven’t had a moment to catch my breath and get bating again (like my sport illustration there, accurate or not?!). Blogging hasn’t even made its way on to the bottom of my radar.

This week we have been having glorious weather and there is nothing like blue skies, warm breezes and hot, golden sunshine to lift the spirits!

The last few days I have been out and about, enjoying the sunshine and giving my freckles permission to cover my face in gingery speckled forests! Good thing I like freckles huh? 🙂

Yesterday afternoon I walked over to my favourite park, which used to be sort of like a back garden for me.

From where I was sitting I could see the row of houses I used to live in before I was married. In fact, the houses with the man up the ladder was where I rented a room. Funnily enough, L and a group of his friends lived in the next one to the left, and one of our pastors and his wife still live in the house to the left of that one … bit of a church take-over! 😉

Every week our church’s staff team pray for a page of people from the Prayer and Address List and I’m the person that gets to write a card to each of these people to let them know they’ve been prayed for that week! I love doing this job and enjoyed taking it out into the lovely day with me!

Of course, I know that it won’t make any difference to the recipients at all, but I liked the thought that lots of sunshine went into those cards yesterday! 🙂

I hope you’ve had some sunshine in your day!
