color me happy

“Color possesses me. I don't have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour: Color and I are one. I am a painter.”

-Paul Klee

I find myself surrounded by color today.  That's a good thing, because Monday's could use a little color in my opinion.  Just to start the week off right, you know.  Sunday night seems like the last hurrah, the end of the weekend fun before the beginning of "real" life with bills and errands and work.  So, a couple cheery things for the day...the crocs came out of hiding today and I shelved my usual, uggs.  Four new stain colors to make fresh and fun glazes.  Aren't they lovely?  I'm excited about that :)  Eggs for breakfast and Whopper mini Robin Eggs for desert :)  A piping hot wood stove.  And Howie's birthday balloons.  Hope you can find a couple more things to make you smile today.


  1. Mine would be:

    The cat squeezing herself onto the windowsill to soak up the sun
    Picking out paint for the kitchen today at the hardware store (I like going there.)
    Hot soup for breakfast followed by one of Tim's famous green smoothies.
    The new teapot my mom gave me.
    And uploading some photos from the past few months. Fun to look back at them. So much has happened since Christmas.
    And things are sprouting in our garden. Gotta get some spinach seeds in!

  2. it's a little sad around here today, especially being stuck near the computer screen for 6 hours.... glug.

    but so far, today has been brightened by:

    oatmeal with alex (as company, not in the oatmeal) for breakfast- colored with red (dried cranberries & cherries) and blue (dried blueberries)

    asparagus & spinach for lunch with brown rice.

    my bright orange scarf- brooke's christmas present - and the yellow trim on my arm warmers

  3. brooke-the hardware store is one of my favorites too. we used to go with dad all the time and pick out little pulleys and fasteners and tools. and...picking out paint is sooo fun!

    somer-your oatmeal sounds delicious, even without alex in it :) did you get one of those ozetta scarves?? i was eying them up a couple months ago. love your descriptions, you always were one to notice the details.
