“Let the sun shine in”

“Now everybody just sing along
Let the sun shine in
Open up your heart and let it shine on in
When you are lonely, let it shine on
Got to open up your heart and let it shine on in”

"Aquarius / Let The Sun Shine In"

I spend most of my time in the lanai....I may have mentioned this before!


And now I have a new flower arrangement to enjoy!


I won this gorgeous flower box from a giveaway by Cynthia at Flowering Angel .


It even has a sweet little Raggedy Ann made by Colleen !


And look at all the extra goodies! A pretty note, a calendar, room spray and a candle tart. Thank you SO much! This was a FUN package to open!


It’s hot here in Florida but my lanai is air conditioned AND it has a ceiling fan that stays on most of the day!

A few of my really good friends asked to see my hair cut! I got it ALL cut off for summer! It’s not quite a pixie but it’s short! I’m leaving for a computer class in this photo. My husband teaches computer classes in our community and I am one of his assistants. I’m the one that says, “Honey, someone has a question over here!” heehee! I’m learning a lot! (and sometimes someone asks a question that I can answer! heehee!)


Enjoy your day!

Diane, for a few years my hubby volunteered teaching computer classes to "seniors" in our town and I was his assistant. I learned SO MUCH by helping others I started blogging. It's the way to learn more and there's so much FuN techie stuff to learn! :) And Congrats on your win!

Your hair cut is darling. If my own hair was that short it would look like a brillo pad on my head- xo Diana

Wanda said...

Love the new 'do! I used to try to grow my hair. It would get so far and then it just made me look tired, and i would cut it off again. Finally, I decided to save myself the pain and just keep it in a pixie cut. I change it every s often to keep it looking current, but it had been essentially the same cut for nearlt 20 years now.
Will you stay in FL for the summer? There are worse places to be!

Creative Breathing said...

Very cute haircut! What a fantastic giveaway prize. The doll just makes it! Enjoy the hot weekend cooling in your lovely space! E

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...
