It's kind of funny that the word "sunshine" is in the title here, since April is known for being a rainy month. But there's plenty of sunshine in April, too. I love the rainy days of Spring, though, and can't wait for them to be here so we can have our beautiful May flowers.
This weekend, though, was so lovely and there was a wonderful coolness to the air most of the time. More than anything there seemed to be the perfect amount of sunshine. I got my a paper I had to do out of the way early on, and got to enjoy it and relax.
It was bright and beautiful on Saturday when we worked in our yard. Our grass has been growing a mile a minute lately and it felt so nice to get outside and take care of that and tend to our garden altogether. My favorite part is probably watering the garden because it's kind of nostalgic to me and I just love getting splashed with the water hose. That's how you survive summers in the South ;)
Lucie even likes to get outside with us and enjoy the feeling of the freshly cut, cool grass. It's such a good feeling to look out on your yard and see it green and Springy and lovely. And it's different to be older and be a bigger part of that and with helping out.
After our yard is done, it is so nice to open the door so that only the screen is there and
enjoy the breeze inside the house while looking out.
Now that the wildflowers are absolutely everywhere, whenever I am driving or we're all in the car as a family, I just stare out the window at the beauty of all their vibrant colors. They look so soft, too, like a big carpet that makes me wish I could go lay in them and take a nap. What a dream.
They are starting to grow in the giant patches they make this time of year and are just glorious. This weekend we got to get out in the sunshine and enjoy them closer up, and actually go pick a few a little ways behind our house to bring them home to add a simple touch of beauty to our kitchen. I loved how country they looked when we put them in a Mason Jar.
It may not seem like staying inside the house would let you see much sunshine, but when I sit in front of our big window I get to enjoy so much of it. I love being in the AC, yet soaking in the bright beautiful light from outside. I got to work on a new embroidery project I started and can't wait to finish so I can wear it this Spring. I'm excited to add some details after I get done with the plain parts.
Those are a few small, but lovely parts of this weekend I enjoyed.
How was your weekend!? Wonderful, I hope!
Have a blessed day!
