Another week of whirlwind weather, finally ending with bright sunshine and warmer temperatures. We have sun more often than not here in the NC mountains. Very unlike the gray days that dominated the winter weather in WI. And we do take advantage of those sunny days. Our house is oriented so that the most frequently used living spaces face the south and east. And oh, how I love the morning sun.
Lucy is a sun lover as well. She finds the sun and follows it along during the day. She would prefer to lie on the hardwood floor in a sunbeam to lying on a comfortable bed in shadows.
This was taken on a sunny day when everything was golden.
The ground cover, the sunshine, and (of course) the dog.
The SC GOP primary is tomorrow so the constant Republican political ads will slow down after being ramped up to warp speed the past week. Strange things are happening today. The Chicago Circuit Court has agree to hear arguments regarding the status of Ted Cruz's eligibility to be President based on his birth in Canada to only one American citizen. Hillary Clinton was kept waiting at a rally by her Secret Service because of a suspicious drone overhead. DJT has actually dissed Pope Francis. Jeb Bush has his 90-year-old mother campaigning with him. And Marco Rubio has received some really important endorsements although many are saying they are so late in coming they were forced by GOP party leaders. What a ride. And thank goodness at least the GOP primary will be over and the analysis of the results will eventually end. Hopefully we will hear more about the Democratic caucuses in Nevada tomorrow than the SC upcoming primary next Saturday. But locally that won't likely be the case. So that means more time for movies and reading.
I hope you are enjoying some sunshine this February wherever you are. Today's quote is from William Cullen Bryant, poet, journalist, and once editor of the New York Evening Post.
"The February sunshine steeps your boughs and tints the buds and swells the leaves within."
It's only a bit more than three weeks until SPRING!
HAVE A MOST WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
