~ Making your own SUNshine ~

We woke up to a bit of cloudy day and LOVED IT.

I  love a cloudy day !

We can enjoy a little SUNshine if we are really looking for it, cloudy or not.

"Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world.
Constantly color your picture GRAY, and your picture will always be bleak. 
Try adding some BRIGHT colors to the picture by including HUMOR and your picture begins to lighten up."
Allen Klein 

I believe this with all my heart.

As the clouds gathered....
I started.....

 I am so loving these bright, POOL SIDE colors here at the SUMMER HOUSE.

Most of you know how much I am a
SEMI-HOMEMADE kind of gal.

I love this microwave bacon so much
 I want to marry it.

Oh,'s expensive...
no mess
no grease splatters to clean up..
easy to get to just the doneness you like best.

There's nothing (at least to MY taste buds) any better than these
"Let go of my Eggo !!"

Google it and listen to a bit of sunshine by an awesome artist. 

This cute coffee cup from PIER 1
made even DUNKIN DONUTS coffee taste a bit better...:) 

 I'm not one for SYRUP so I generally like jelly with my waffles.

Sweet girl, STACY LEIGH
brought this jar of 
BLUEBERRY SPREAD to me from one of her trips.

It is sooo good.

A day in the life....

For me, some days are so productive and others......well......not so productive.
I had a great "get 'er done" day on Friday.

First thing on the list was to get this great Rump roast into the crock pot.

We LUV having a large roast to snack on thru the week.
Hot Roast Beef sandwiches are one of my favorites.

Toast bread and slice each piece in  half.
Sliced beef....roast beef gravy..
all layered on the toasted bread.

such a comfort food for me because my mother made them for dinner at least once a week.

This is a small pot and the English Ivy has really done great in IT
and the sunny dining room.
It had outgrown it's home and time to get it into another, larger one.

After picking up every single pot in Walmart, trying to decide on COLOR,
I finally chose a plain white ceramic pot and am so happy with the look.

8:30 am by now and time for a quick breakfast...

Mixed fruit breakfast with a little COTTAGE CHEESE 
and may I add that the fresh pineapple and blackberries were sooo sweet...
cantaloupe wasn't quite as sweet...still good as were the ripe, juicy strawberries.

Boy, the fruits are so good this time of year.
A great way to start the day ! :)

Watered all the little tiny plants and I can hardly wait for them to grow and spill over these cute little wall pots.

I see some new  growth...

This little  plant that STACY and fam. gave me is blooming for the second time this summer.

I do love a few FAUXS but you can't beat real, live, growing plants.



...moving on to the living room..

I had been wanting to move the wicker desk from one wall to another, larger area beside the fireplace...

It's now beneath the pinky pigs art that Stacy bought for me.

I smile every time I come into this room...and sometimes just laugh out loud.

...just a few things on top of the desk..

'course, during all the happenings going on in this SUMMER HOUSE,
laundry was going on, too.

THIS little change didn't take even a second....
