Another post on sunshine, does this tell you something about me? Sometimes I think I should be living on a tropical island somewhere where it's sunny and mild all the time. Anyway, the brightness woke me early this morning peeking through the bedroom window, and I knew it was going to be a good day. Any day with sunshine is a good day for me! So I poured my coffee and sat with Otis and Riley for a few minutes. They always want me to sit with them first thing; it's a ritual we go through every morning; Otis on my lap and Riley snuggled beside me. This is when I get a chance to read.

So after a few cups of coffee, I managed to get some cleaning done and put a roast in the oven. Otis and Riley found a sunny spot in the study which I thought was so cute. Otis looks like he's soaking it up and Riley is working on a bone. They follow the sun around the house almost as much as I do in the winter.
Below is a "sunshine" sign I painted that hangs on the back porch.

Well, that roast is beginning to smell absolutely divine and I'm looking forward to hubby coming home this evening after a hectic week on the road.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I love the top picture. Is it a curtain? Really lovely photo.

Hi Nan, Yes the top photo is a curtain.
Also to answer your other question on my post about Spring...the sign on the gate says, "Please Close Gate".
Thanks for your comments!

I like your sunshine picture but I really love the one of Otis & Riley in the sun. Our doxies used to follow the sun around the house too. They love their sun spots don't they.

Hi Donna
Benny got tagged to do a Meme and has passed it on to Riley & Otis if they would like to play along
:-} Have a great weekend!

Don't you just love sunshine this time of year!? Otis and Riley are so cute, the way they follow the sun around!

Oh, I'm with you, Donna! The sun makes such a big difference in my outlook for the day. Hope you are enjoying your weekend with your husband.

I soooo know what you mean about sunshine. It's so important to my mood. Love it. Cute photos of the dogs...they love the sunshine too.

Donna, my dogs love the sun as well....I think they like it just as much as humans. Whenever the sun is shining through a window, onto the carpet, you can frequently find them laying in that spot.

Can you bring some of the sunshine my way? We had another snowfall last night! The roast sounds Yummmy!
