You just described the days I call delicious or I will say they are so beautiful they hurt. Days like that are made for just enjoying. Letting the eyes & the nose drink it all in & settle peacefully in your soul, soothing.

It's time to chop down a dead tree or two. Group hug
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Thumbs up

I changed my mind today, just couldn't chop. So I'm vacuuming. Sigh.

It will come when the time is right. When you are fully ready, you will know it.

Love all the photo's Sharon and I get it on having to take any tree down. Crying

I think that coleus is magic too Lovey dubby

Our yesterday and even today is like that too. Even the way the sun rays cast their light are just beautiful. Just so perfect you want to put it on, wear it, and keep it forever.

Margaret, Vic, it's the same here, just incredibly beautiful and you are right, the sun rays are magical and the light is golden. Put it on, wear it, breathe it in and just hold on to it forever. Wow.

But you know, it's one of those days you can't get a thing done because you are too overwhelmed and wrapped up in the beauty of it all. I watched Sunshine roll around on the deck in a sunny spot and then when she was finished rolling, she just lay there on her back wearing that Sunshine grin she wears when all's right in her world. Of course she grins like that all the time but not usually when laying on her back with her paws all loose and dangling. I could have tickled her tummy and she might never have moved.

It's some kinda day, that's for sure. Big Grin

Sounds like a perfect kind of day, especially with blue skies & pets! Enjoyed the pictures: Badly needed color here.

Thanks Leon, not much color here either, but still lots of shades of green. And right now the sun is doing it's low golden thing again, like spreading a glowing blanket all over my world. Big Grin
