Sunshine Joy

Sunshine streaming through my kitchen window
flowers drinking in the sun
brings me joy...

Sunshine streaming through windowsill bottles
light dancing everywhere
brings me joy...

Sunlight streaming down onto the kitchen floor
kitty in a puddle
brings me joy...

and I think...

it brings Banjo joy as well...

he's just not showing it...


the sunshine was glorious yesterday
everyone enjoyed it to it's fullest...

I love all of your pictures, they are beautiful.
No sun here today just high winds taking us down to -4 again tonight.
One of our dogs, Charlie (we call him a miniature Rottweiler as he is a Rottweiler but very small)always searches out the sunbeams in our house when there are some!!

well captured!
Yes, it WAS lovely yesterday. I planted peas and pansies outside. Today, it is raining, raining, raining. But that's a good thing, because all those seeds and plants are getting a good, long drink!

Linda Makiej said...

Fantastic photos!!!! I love the way you write as well.... :)

Ann said...

It's amazing what a little sunshine can do for your mood. I think I can tell that Banjo is enjoying it, he seems to have just a hint of a smile there.

Tamago said...

Your photos and words bring me a joy, too!! What a geautiful color of green! And Banjo..looks like he is enjoying the sun a lot. I think he is smiling :-)

Lin said...

I don't think Banjo is full of joy--look at his ears. He's making "yoda ears" which means he's mad you are taking his photo and ruining his nice nap. ;) My kitties make "yoda ears" when they are annoyed with me too.

BeadedTail said...

Banjo is smiling in that last photo! He looks like he's enjoying that sunpuddle very much!

Pamela said...

The sun is pure medicine ..isn't it?

Your sweet Banjo is doing what I like to do...I always find a spot where the sun is coming in and sit in it...smart kitty I must say.

Monday hugs to you. xoxo

Contentment and joy are pretty close... and Banjo looks pretty content.

Speaking of Joy, do you know how much joy reading this blog is going to be for boy bean and grandbeans years from now? Just sayin'.

Deb said...

It was actually hot here today. I think we broke a record. So....we made it through another winter. We are Canadians...hear us roar!

Linda R. said...

Such pretty photos. I just love to see my kitties do the same thing.. Look for that sunny spot on the floor or couch or were ever it may be..

So glad to see a little sunshine your way..

Hugs, Linda

Linens and Royals said...

Cats can always find the one sunny spot in the house and soak up the sun and Banjo is enjoying all that lovely warmth. Hope the week stays sunny for you Banjo. XX

Kat_RN said...

Not just joy, but joyful contentment. I'm off to work, but I have happy images to start my day with.
Thanks again,
Kat

Our cat LOVES to laying in the sunshine off the french doors. Finally we had tons of it the past weekend and she was just as happy 'basking' in the sunshine as I was!! :-)

I hope you have a Beautiful and 'Sunny' Spring, Catherine!!

I think Banjo's got the right idea; lazing about and having a nap in a lovely patch of sun *sigh* (I think I'm jealous ;o)

How very very beautiful. I love the photos of the light and your little one is a delight to see.
My babies are growing and fat.
I sure hope my hubby will help me get some photos. I need someone to hold them. Cant wait for you to see them.

My bunny has been sun puddling too. I love to snuggle up next to him when his fur is all warm. :)
