Forecast: JOY

Jan. 25 UPDATE:  I'm linking this particular post to "Good Life Wednesday" over at A Beach Cottage.  Sarah, thanks for a chance to share "the good life!"

Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays

Temperatures, cold!
Snow likely.  Flurries likely.  Isolated and scattered snow likely.
Sun?  Not likely.
That's our weekend forecast.

Sounds like a good weekend for soup,
and snuggling on the couch with lots of blankets,
and movies.

Gray with six more days of gray is what they are forecasting (if you look at the weather forecast picture-charts).  You get the general idea.  If sun is anywhere in the picture, it is behind clouds.

Sometimes when the "big picture" doesn't seem especially JOYful, you have to look deeper to find little pieces of JOY.

I was at the grocery store yesterday, and saw these:

and I was supposed to resist them, HOW?
They screamed JOY to me.

I think it was their vibrant color.
It could've been the "$2 off" coupon...
Either way, they are on my kitchen counter,
and I'm pretty happy about that!

UPDATE:  Here comes the sun!  Don't ever complain about the weatherman being wrong!

Lisa is so sweet.
She just linked me up over on her blog!  Check it out!


  1. Hope you don't mind, I'm hooking your blog up so you can inspire others with your JOY! :) Hooray! Love those blue gerber daisies.

  2. Oh...Sally...those are gorgeous flowers! Helps one overcome the other "blues" of winter. ;-)
    Thanks for sharing and for spreading the J.O.Y.

  3. I found you from "Be Joyful with Joyful Jones" and I am so glad I did. Love your writing and pics!

  4. Flowers always bring me joy, no matter the color. But I can see why you were drawn to the blue daisies - they're so summery! ::Jill

  5. So pretty. I love your vase too!

  6. Oh! That blue is just so wonderful!

    I'm so glad you took them home with you!

  7. Hi Sally - Love your vibrant blue daisies. My favorite are blue colored flowers but there aren't too many of them.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
