I was up at the crack of dawn today as I had lots planned to do. I was rewarded with a profusion of morning glory blooms which I snapped up after having some coffee. The light was perfect and the morning air was sweet.
I am so happy with the first morning glory here. It’s my favorite so far.
I had lots to do because we were gone most of the day yesterday. School begins Monday and that means dressing accordingly. Gone is the summer office attire and the easy mornings of just slipping into a t-shirt, capri slacks and flip flops before heading to the office.
Over the years, I’ve had a tradition of going through my wardrobe the weekend before school starts, sorting out the things I’ll be wearing, and just generally getting it all ready. There was laundry to do, slacks, skirts, and tops to press, and some hemming that needed addressed. All that and a quick trip to the mall in DE – home of tax free shopping – where I got nearly everything I needed at Macy’s, as the sales were pretty darn good (and I had coupons, so they were even better).
I even picked up a couple of things to wear through the fall and into the winter. I love getting a good bargain and today I hit the jackpot.
And then I came home and looked at the morning glory photos I’d taken this morning and was even happier.
It’s doesn’t take much, does it?!
Because I’ve been so busy, I still haven’t yet read all of your answers to yesterday’s Q&A, so if you haven’t heard from me, that’s why. Well, it’s either that or I’m unable to respond because your e-mail isn’t visible to me. In that case, you can do this (if you desire).
Hope you all have a good start to the week. And, as ever, thanks so much for stopping by. It’s always a pleasure having you visit.
Oh, and speaking of visiting, if you’d like to see some absolutely gorgeous photos of dragonflies, visit my friend Sharon at A New England Life. Her dragonfly captures are simply wonderful. (And I stole my post title from her).
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
