Sunny Sunday

Waking up on an autumnal Sunday morning to the sunshine beaming in through your bedroom window and a nice cup of tea sitting on the bedside table lovingly brought to you by DH, what better way to put a smile on your face and start the day.

The smileyness continued all day for me today, the simple little things that sometimes make you laugh and giggle the day away .....

A silly shaped tomato found in the greenhouse and trying to think what it looked like


Switching on the computer and there's an email from a friend you have not spoken to for a couple of weeks, remembering the lovely conversations you used to have all the time and the fun and laughter you've shared


Opening the back door and being presented with a lovely bunch of chrysanthemums grown by DH when he came home from the allotment this morning


We have concerts in some parks in our city over the summer on a Sunday afternoon. This week it was the local brass band and one of the players is a member of the community association. DH and i spent a lovely sunny afternoon hand in hand through the park before settling on a bench and tapping our feet along to the lovely sound. Lots of people took advantage of the sunshine, children were having fun taking dolls for walks in prams and even the ice-cream van made an appearance to cool us all off.


Returning home to a homemade sponge cake filled with homemade lemon curd and enjoying a piece with a cup of tea sitting in the conservatory with a little furry kitty for company


I think i'll finish off this smiley happy day with a bit of hookey time this evening on this blanket i've started for Amy. Her sitting room has a red/black theme and this will be a nice throw blankie for her sofa. It's going to be part of her Christmas pressie. It's a huge granny square and lovely and cosy.

I hope you too have had some lovely happy moments this weekend with the ones you love

What a wonderful Sunday Julie. Now I want to make a lemon cake! I've not one filled with lemon curd in ages. I need to bake!!!!

I love the look of the blanket you're making for Amy. Guess what I was looking for my knitting needles etc the other day and I came across a book I'd forgotten I had about how crochet!

Pumpkin said...

What beautiful happy moments Julie :o) Your Mums are gorgeous and that cake looks divine!

I think if you stuck a beak on the top round part of the tomato, it would look like a little bird :o)
