Winter weather often determines my mood.  Unlike a few of the blog readers I’m not a fan of Winter and often get ‘the miseries’ when the days are dull and the hours of daylight get progressively less and less.

However after a very cold night in my area (3c /37f) yesterday turned out to be a corker.  Dry and sunny with a brisk wind!  Comfortable enough to hang washing on the line and potter about in part of the garden that has been neglected for a while.


Then it was time for a coffee (and craft) break on the back deck and who better to share it with than my shadow called Kiera.  You’d be amazed at how warm and comfortable that little spot at the table can get when the winter sun beams through the PVC blinds.  They are a great windbreak too.


By early afternoon the sun had moved to the front of the house which is where the lounge room is.

So you could say – that very much like the song John Denver used to sing – Sunshine makes me happy 🙂
