The promised post!

See? A post. :) Amazing, I know. :)

It was so nice yesterday morning (and afternoon, although it got a little windy in the afternoon) that I decided to sit out on the front step and enjoy the sunshine and warmer weather. I love sitting outside and I love warm weather. It makes me very, very happy. :)
My blanket I was sitting on and books I was looking through.










Coffee!!!! Mmmmmm. :) And my constant companion.














The pen I was using is a gift from my little sister
Leah! It's purple and it
sparkles!!!! How great is that?! :)









One of the books I was looking through. Yes, it is a Jane Austen book. :)











The new tote bag Popi bought me so that I can beautifully tote things around.
It's very large and holds lots of things. I love it!










It was so warm that I just wrapped myself in one of my shawls and was warm enough.











Tulips! Need I say more?













The little stone/brick path we put in last year. It is rather short, very short in fact, but I love it!















Robins! Spring is here!!

I love nice pictures of nice things :)
I love the design on the coffee mug... but hold the coffee! Ugh, that stuff is awful! :D
Oh I like Robins. They're so goofy! ;)

I love sitting outside when it's warm (as long as it's not too windy!) :)

I like that teacup, it's very pretty. And that pen is really sparkly!

The coffee mug was given to me by one of my piano students as a Christmas gift, but even if I had bought myself one I would pick one just like it. :) My kids know me well.

Awww, come on, coffee is good. ;) But sometimes my faithful friend holds tea as well. Only coffee in the mornings. :)

Yes, wind does put a damper on sitting outside. But sometimes, if it's just a little breeze then I love it!

abigail said...

Wind is great! From breeze to bluster, I must be out in it! But I admit that it's hard to read a book when it's windy :)

Your shawl is a great color. For some reason I'm getting the impression that you REALLY like purple. Not sure why I would think that but anyway... ;)

What a lovely post ... and what a lovely time. It sounds perfect! :->

I like wind too, sometimes I guess. I like wind in the trees outside my window, I like wind if I'm standing there, or running or something that doesn't require things being pinned down. :)

And I have NO IDEA why you would think I like purple. :) My shawl is one that my mommy knitted for me! She's so nice to me!


Ruth~
Thank you for your kind words! It WAS a lovely time!

*Giggle!* Well ... purple is a nice colour! Actually, Ana, I'd kind of noticed that yoy like purple too! But that's okay ... it's a nice colour! :->

Elizabeth said...

P.S. What book were you reading? Anything about Jabe Austen sounds good! Care to share?!? :-> *Hug!*

Is it THAT obvious that I like purple? :) Okay, so I know it is, but still. I really like purple. :)

Books I'm reading ... like novels? I'm reading, of course(!), Jane Austen(!!), Pride and Prejudice and loving it!!!!

Other books I'm reading ... the Journals of Jim Elliot, a biography of Elizabeth Prentiss, and of course my Bible: Psalms and Matthew.

What about you? What are you reading?

Sounds like a nice day! I've started reading Persuasion.At a thrift store yesterday I found My Dear Cassandra, selected letters of Jane Austen.Throughout the book there are sketches and watercolours.

All you need is a purple dress!

Last week at the same thrift store I found a framed picture of the Young Lady Reading that you have on your wall.

Have you ever read Persuasion before? If not, how do you like it? :) Jane Austen letters, oh, how I would love that!! I wish our thrift store carried wonderful books like that ... but alas, they do not.

I think I DO own a purple dress, and if not a dress then certainly a couple purple skirts. :)

What am I reading?!? I'm reading the Bible ... I'm trying to read it from cover to cover in 90 days and I only have a little while left until Day 90, soooooo ... ! When I've finished reading my Bible (hopefully before Day 90), I think I'm going to read through the Anne of Green Gables books again. They're perfect to read during the spring ...

Ana said...

Elizabeth~
Yes, of course, I'm reading my Bible too. :) I did forget to mention that, I thought you meant novels and such. :)

I have never read the Anne of Green Gables books. I'd love to though, I love the movies.

abigail said...

Oo, you must read the Anne of Green Gables books!! They're are so good, and funny!

Ana said...

I know, I MUST read the Anne of Green Gables books. I take it you've read them? :) Happy thought indeed! :)
