As I sit here typing this post I have great music playing in the background on my computer...I think I may have mentioned before that I have Sirius XM in my car, which I absolutely love, makes my driving to see my sweetie so much nicer to hear the great oldies that I play while driving. Last week I received an email from the friendly folk at Sirius offering a deal to add Sirius to your home computer or IPHONE for only $3.50 a month. Well, I jumped at the chance for that deal. So right now not only can I enjoy the sounds in my car, but at home as well, oh the small joys of life. Right now "In the Mood" is playing....I am definitely in the mood for some swing and sway. Love those "40's on 4".
OK these images have absolutely nothing to do with Sirius or the 40's but fall into the category of small joys in my life. The front porch at evening time, with the clematis vine on the front fence growing like a weed. This will be covered with white blooms around Labor Day, sweet smelling and nectar for the bees.
This Friday I have a date with some girlfriends to attend "The Perennial Fest" at another favorite garden center locally. It is supposed to be HOT, HOT, HOT so we are planning on heading out early. These next 3 pics are actually from last year's perennial fest that never got posted.
And finally, Kim's challenge to us this week in Beyond Layers is cups....and I do love cups. This one is pretty special, it belonged to my Mom. It was part of a full set of cups, saucers, small dishes, tea pot and sugar & creamer. I just wish she was still with me so I could join her in a cup of tea and talk about happy things.
I hope you find many small joys today.
