Shirt Sleeve Sunday

And did we ever need it!

Minding my own biz (for once), I rolled up those Sunday shirt sleeves and made my way down to the edge of the driveway where I promptly took over. I was armed and ready. Good for the challenge. Fighting fit and ready to engage...

And then I did this. Hail his majesty the sun... for if winter comes, can Spring be far behind? And then I noticed something and just could not resist.

Can you see it? Do you see what I see?

Well, how about now?

I admit it, I turned as lazy as a big orange cat, napping in the you know what ... but while getting my weekend post all ready to shine like a big ol' star, Our Very Own Star came out today, bringing a nice 70 or so Fahrenheit with it, making this day of days a Shirt Sleeve Sunday. Thanks, Sol!
And thanks for those birthday cards, and Sarah, your lovely artcard came right on time! What a lovely drawing... and Jeanne was so kind to post good wishes on my Facebook. Denise sent the handmade Happy Birthday, along with a very fun "CARE package". Goodness!
My much-loved Thister sent the Black Sheep of the Family card, with a hysterical inside message. (Yes, I do look good in black. And I do look good in wool! But on a day like today, I wore pinks and oranges -- how appropriate!)
Mmm... guess which card is from T? Hint: Look for the party animal! What the...??? Freak from T, black sheep of the family from Thister -- ahhhh. Good to know my reputation remains intact.

Speaking of party animals, the Girls loved their very own party favours (Milkbones). Of course, they would.
And Here She Is ... a peek at Persephone's Spring 2010 Line. Dig that veil --

-- which She will be tearing off soon enough, wide awake once again as She hightails it through the fields on Her annual trip home to Mama, leaving flowers and healing tenderness in Her wake.
Get More of What You Love.

I was walking down the street in town today and was thinking of how warm it usually is when we have the annual Chalk Art Festival. Now, you haven't waited but took the bull by the horns. Good for you. So happy a birthday, with cards from friends. And I doubt you are the black sheep but maybe the most fun one in the flock! Love Persephone. Throw off that veil soon and run home, gal!

I am glad you had a fun weekend in the sun and a happy birthday Candace! I love your chalk drawing-how lovely to be able to sit on your drive in the sun and draw!
Thanks for all your lovely comments-as always!

P.S. I had never seen that film before-can you believe it? I loved it!

Candace said...

Femminismo, an annual Chalk Art Festival? Wow, exactly the type thing The Classic City should have. I'll alert the media!

Sarah, that film is delightful, isn't it? So beatnik and 50s in a way... just fun! Wonder if that's where the idea for Television's "Bewitched" came from?

Take care, and thanks, Kids, for the visits and comments!

Hi, Candace! Isn't the sun wonderful?! I am sooooo ready for Spring! :-)

Candace said...

Well, that lovely day is over for a while. COLD winds here. The shiny sun only tantalizes all the more. And the threat of another snow? eep.
Take care, Anne, and thanks for stopping by.

Love all your birthday cards Candace, I hope you had a great one...I bet you made it a great one, you just seem like the sort of person who's always happy and fun to be around! Drawing with chalk in the driveway...I haven't done that in a while! See, that's what I mean, you're so much fun! Love you veiled lady! xoxo Paulette
