Too right! I adore rainy Sundays! Hang in there!! Our mom had non-hodgkins lymphoma & our dad, prostate cancer in '99...and all is well.m ^..^
I'm a little worried - if you are the third grayest, we must be the first! However, I do love our cozy winter weather - it may be gray but at least it isn't freezing and our roads are merely wet - not slick!Happy Sunday,xx
Kathy and Dave, thank you so much for your phone call today! Your love and encouragement, while you are going through your own "stuff," is a bright light shining in the world. You are a true example of what God's strength and grace can do when we walk closely with Him! All our love to you two! Our prayers are with you!!!! Deb Simon (and crew)
Hello Kathy...Ohhh...I love your beautiful twinkly lights! Hmmm...so what if there is a rule? I think they are lovely and I love all the pretty candles that join them! I was noticing that we have the exact little glass candleholders...the ones with the little balls around the bottom edge! I think they are so pretty! Well my friend, enjoy your sweet book and your twinkly lights!!! Continued prayer and support coming your way, my dear!!!Warmest winter wishes,Chari @Happy To Design
Kathy..we have had 2 days of light! The last two..It has felt like a gift~January has been so glum..What pretty vignettes:) Let us know if the book is good..the cover is so cute!Shine a little light on me~ :) Shine a little light on you~
Kathy.....Very wet and dreary here today. Good idea to turn on the white twinky lights...I just did!~Patti
It's amazing what a bit of candle light can do!- The Tablescaper
We have been having a super rainy day here. Our little self built pond looks like a lake now! So, I've been indoors attempting to organize that room. I still have white lights on the mantel too as it looks so warm and cozy. I also have some on a shelf in my guest bathroom which just looks too cute, and I am going to leave those too. When something makes a place look cozy and full of welcome, why change? Keeping thoughts with the two of you.Take CareUlrike
We had candle light most of this day, but then we had no electricity either! It is a rainy day in Georgia.
Kathy-Attitude is everything isn't it? Your mantel is gorgeous--love all the different shapes and textures...and the light. We might as well embrace the gray with twinkle lights!
A rainy day here too...I too have lit some candles and have several lamps on to brighten up the day!Blessings!~Nadine
Kathy, you are so cool...keep on doing your blog when you can, I can just see you influencing other folks, and we can encourage you two, too. grin!!!Hugs of encouragement to both of you.glenda
A few important things that cancer cannot do...Luvyas, glendaCancer is so limited...It cannot cripple love.It cannot shatter hope.It cannot corrode faith.It cannot eat away peace.It cannot destroy confidence.It cannot kill friendship.It cannot shut out memories.It cannot silence courage.It cannot reduce eternal life.It cannot quench the Spirit.
Wow, I am encouraged that there are actually other grey, rainy and depressing days in a state other than where I am. Be sure you and your situation will be prayed for. After two rounds of cancer, chemo, more surgeries I am getting "friskie" again. May you and your family be blessed and healed.
Love the lights and the candles. It looks so warm and inviting. Reading a good book sounds like a restful thing to do. Hope your day was a special one. Hugs, Marty
It is raining and dreary in Florida, too. Your twinkling lights brighten my world....thinking of you and yours.
It was gray, overcast here today in NE PA. Suppose to rain tonight and the AM tomorrow. I wouldn't mind some sunshine. Your photos are magical and so dreamy!Teacup Lane (Sandy)
Ha! Belgium is also gray. But only on the OUTside. (just like me). I've lit a candle for you and Dave tonight. Hugs, hon.

Morning Kathy,Think that is a great idea to leave up those twinkle lights. I love white twinkle lights they are elegant looking I think! Sure look pretty up on your mantle with the candles as well. Good for you. I believe if their is something we can do to make a situation better or to add my joy and pleasantry, why not??? Those are the lil touches that make life fun,and we all need more fun in our lives. I am all for that!! lolHave a great day in your Sunny living room!!Blessings, Nellie
Hey Kathy....rules were meant to be broken right!I say if it makes your heart smile GO FOR IT!Happy day sweetpea,Hugz, Dolly
I love twinkle lights all year around. I have some on a small tree in my living room. It's on a timer, and although we don't spend much time in the living room,(we are usually in the family room), and I keep only one small lamp lit in there, my twinkle lights give the room a little coziness when they turn on every evening. Your photos came out so pretty. Love the soft lighting. Hugs!
I can't think of a lovelier way to brighten a dull day! Leigh
I caught up on your last post and will be praying for you! You are so often in my thoughts.This is the time to please yourself! No rules, just take the time for some peace and quiet.Big hug!Barbara
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
