Today has once again been a wishful thinking kind of a day. It started off with brilliant sunshine streaming through my bedroom window, shimmering on the bright blue river, making everything feel happy and bright again.
The tiny Tete-a-Tete daffodils that I got for Mothers day looked so much better lifting their little heads to welcome the sunshine into our home.
Little T too seemed to be a happier boy this morning, playing in the bright room and trying to catch the sun rays bouncing off the petals of the flowers.
I should have know that it's too good to be true though, and sure enough before the morning was even halfway over the sky began to darken once more. That gloriously brilliant view from this morning now looked like this!
No, your eyes are not deceiving you, that really is snow falling from the sky and settling all around us. Winter is truly hanging in there this year...
I am however set on not letting this ruin a day that started off so wonderfully and have a plan of action to keep my spirits up.
Step one, a comforting pot of Red Bush tea to warm me from the inside out and remind me of home.
Step two, settling into my favourite spot with my crochet hooks and a big box of colourful scraps of yarn.
Step three, creating my own little flower garden to make up for the lack of real ones outside.
I am happy to report that the plan has worked and that I am still having a "sunny" day and that I intend to do so until the real sunshine makes it's appearance once again :)
