Rainbow Makers



Sunlight has been shining through the front door window and creating these cheery patches on walls, on the floor and on furniture.  This one was as big as my foot! 
Whiskers noticed it, too, and rolled in it. ha.

It's almost like the door is full of rainbow makers,
just like in the movie Pollyanna. :)

We had an incredibly lazy day today. 
I didn't even putter! ha.
I overslept with the time change, did you?

  6. Now if only a pot of gold
    Would come and take hold
    Then you would be all set
    Isn't whiskers being a playful pet
    She likes rainbows
    And eating crows
    That is quite the pair of things
    As she chases down things with wings

    1. I suppose if I found a pot of gold
      you'd ask me to share, being so bold. ha.

      Whiskers is quite the pet.
      It's nice to have a girl around, you can bet.
      She's laying here beside me. You should see how
      she's sucking up the heat from the laptop vent now.

    2. hahaha well if it was a big pot of gold
      Your generosity would just take hold

      Sucking up the heat
      While she has a seat
      She knows she has it good at your sea
      And there is no need to go outside and climb a tree

      Delete
    3. well that is very true.
      I'd love to send a new bush 3 to you
      one that didn't have a monthy rent
      and getting locked outside wouldn't made you bent.

      Actually, Whiskerss did run outside for a while
      but wants back in to be pampered in style.
      ha.

      Delete
    4. haha that would be quite the bush
      Fit for the cat's royal tush..haha

      Marmy prob scared her back in
      As he tried to commit a sin..haha

  7. Nothing like a rainbow to make a lazy Sunday cheerful. No, I didn't sleep in, but I wanted to. :) I got up and made coffee instead. :)

    1. How are you? I bet you needed the coffee, too! :)

    2. I'm doing good! The past week has been a whirlwind of dr. appointments, and case worker visits tho. Ready for some normal. ;) I always need coffee. :)

    3. Is it warm there? We had 62 degrees and sun. It really felt like spring. Is everyone well now?

      Delete
    4. It got up to 67 degrees. Felt wonderful! I was the last one to get sick, and I still have a little cough, but otherwise everyone is healthy.

      Delete
    5. wow...you had it warmer than we did! So glad everyone is on the mend. I guess the bugs had to get you eventually! Maybe this week you can all get back to normal and have a regular blissfully uneventful week. ha.

    6. We've missed you being around! Do you think you and your one little girl can paint your toenails and join my party? That would be so fun!

    7. Both of you are great moms!
      Plates full and still smiles on your faces.

  8. I love how light makes those rainbows or prisms lights or whatever they are. So pretty.
    I didn't oversleep, heavy rain woke me up. but I don't like the time change, wish the powers would just leave it alone.

  9. It was an incredibly gorgeous day! (Thanks for sending that nice weather!!!) I took both a walk and a nap, but didn't oversleep this morning. However, I did arrive at church just a few minutes late with breakfast in hand. Do you think it's okay to eat breakfast in Sunday school?

    1. I absolutely think it's find to eat during Sunday School! In fact, ours serves it! ha. A walk and a nap sound wonderful. I should have done that. I did, however, sit on the couch like a couch potatoe,...something which I never do.

  12. I did not oversleep. I actually woke up very early for an appointment that I didn't even go to. lol

    Your little rainbows are very pretty! I wonder what it's reflecting off of to do that. Hmmm

    1. Well, good for you! At least you had more of the day to enjoy! ha. The rainbows are coming from the leaded glass in the door...like little prisms. :) It's a new door...that's why it's such a big deal. haha.

  13. I think it's too cute that the cat rolled in the rainbow. We should all take a lesson. :)

  18. Nature truly is wonderful and to have the sun and glass provide you with such beauty is really great. I am betting that when you have some beautiful spring rainy days that you will see some spectacular rainbows.

    Maybe we will get lucky and get more rain this year.

    Hope you have another relaxed day.

    God bless.

  21. if my 11-year-old nephew hadn't overslept, that would have been the story:) you are right. that's what he does, and me:) they may be defining actions, but only on daylight savings time is it a communal activity.
