Singing in the Rain !

We are getting some much 
needed rain here in California.  
 It's a good thing!

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin',
Singin' in the rain
Lyrics by Arthur Freed, 
music by Nacio Herb Brown
and of course, the most famous
singing version by Gene Kelly.

These were taken last winter,
but I thought I would share them
again for a bit of cheer.

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. 
 ~Iris Murdoch

Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from which we get sunshine when dark, somber skies blanket our thoughts. 

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature. 
 ~Gerard de Nerval

Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you. 
 ~Edward Payson Rod

Valentine's Weekend

Dated Feb. 14, 1910
Dear Irean, How are you?  I am feeling fine.  Aunt Hester was up Sunday.  She is feeling fine. You must come down next summer and we will have watermelon.  With love to you from Clara

This is the best shot I could get of the
 full "Snow" moon before it slipped 
behind the clouds.

I forgot I liked champagne, do you like it too?
I had the bottle in the frig. for the past 2 years so we decided to open it on Valentine's night.
I bought it because I liked the bottle.  
It was pretty good too.

Have you seen a Robin yet?  We usually 
see them early in Northern California.

A new pansy found outside our kitchen door.

Next stop St. Patrick's Day!
Postmarked 1907,  2 postmarks, one from Myrtle Point, Oregon 6 pm and the other from Port Orford, Oregon 7 pm Feb. 4, 1907
Hello Beck, I wish you were coming up here.  We are having a fine time.

Hope smiles on the threshold of the year to come,
whispering that it will be happier.
--- Alfred Lord Tennyson

Petey Pumpkin

Petey Pumpkin found us a month
after we moved into our new house
October 2012.   He is just the best
cat in the world and I love him so much.
Everyday he brings us so much joy
and laughter.  Thank you God for
bringing us Petey Pumpkin.
