I borrowed this from Sir Google - a Sunshine Wallpaper designed to lift your spirits
and make your computer screen glow!
I am considering pulling down the window blind and pretending I am in a little capsule of sunshine,
shutting out the dreary lowering sky.
And maybe even blowing up this wonderful summery picture to poster size
and attaching it to the inside of the blind.....
Here, in town, I thought about 'The Sunny Side of the Street'
and although there isn't any sunny side of the street
these dismal February days
I nevertheless started humming it - cheerily.
Here is Benny Goodman and his Jazz Sextet, with Peggy Lee
recorded on Christmas Eve, 1941
Does it make you smile?
This lovely Jasmine came to live with us on Valentine's Day
I go to check on the wonderful oven odours emanating from the freshly baked bread
and as I pass the Jasmine its glorious summery scent wafts
me into the kitchen
I think these soulful smells and sights will have to suffice
until February decides to play host to blue skies and sunshine again.
I understand there are Robins in the vicinity!!!!!
