I thought for sure that I could stop posting yellow things since I would be seeing them outside by now but no…..the air is BRISK, windy, freezing cold. Technically yes, its Spring but it doesn’t feel like Spring. To all of us, it feels like Winter. We were lucky not to get SNOW today. I am not kidding. I truly hope this is the last entry. Why do I think it may not be? Today’s picture of interest is this: A YELLOW rose something I hope to see soon in real life.
It is sleeting outside, it’s been a bad day. I’m looking at this peaceful photograph I took last year. I SHOULD meditate. Perhaps this is the reminder I need to set aside 20 minutes twice a day. I need it, I know that for sure. I will start tomorrow.
One of my favorite sayings and I am sorry I don’t know the source: “Praying is talking to God, Meditation is Listening
There’s a little chill in the air now, summer is over. You can smell it in the air. When the summer
starts to end, you feel the crispness of apples in the air. Suddenly, you feel like a cup of hot cocoa in the late afternoons, or a cup of coffee and a piece of cake. Apple strudel/cake or the German “Apfel Kuchen.” A lovely tradition in Europe, one I respect very much!

I adopted a dog recently from an animal shelter, we think she’s a combination of a German Shepard and Yellow Lab. Adopting a dog instead of buying one makes me happy; getting a new dog after my old dog died made me happy. Any shade of the color yellow makes me happy. Today my pick for Mellow Yellow Monday are Yellow Labs. I know, all you can do is smile and say “Awwww.”( p.s. this is NOT my dog)
Inspired by my friend Becca Givens, I’ve decided to become a part of this sunny group too. Yellow is my favorite color and we just painted our house a sunny yellow with white shutters. I’m going to pretend it’s a beach house even when it’s snowing like crazy! I love my yellow Cape house, it’s not very spacious at all but it’s lovely to look at. My dream was always to have a yellow, Volkswagon Beetle, the adorable bugs from a few years ago but alas, we got a Mazda family car instead. Sometimes you just have to improvise and feel yellow inside. Happy Happy to all!
