a good day… to smile

It’s a good day when,
both the cat and the dog
choose your lap to share for morning comfort

while you sit to watch
the cardinals, blue jays, chickadees and woodpeckers
come by the window for a treat
and you choose to stay there
long enough to finish a really good book
finding joy in knowing that the very next read is waiting
just beside
you

when you can visit the second-hand bookstore
spot a few of your own that you have just given away
and not buy them back πŸ˜‰
find a copy of To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
that you just cannot pass up
as well a few cds, (does anyone cd anymore or is it just meπŸ€”)
a nice brisk walk and lunch with my love
then pop in my new finds Sarah Harmer, Patty Griffin and
Trio II, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt & Dolly Parton
to listen

while still floating a little from last night
watching Funny Girl
and just how wonderfully gorgeous and equally fabulous
is the ever so young Barbra Streisand

it is indeed a good day
when you can surround yourself in all things
lovely
and almost never find yourself,
without a smile πŸ’—

How ’bout you, how was your day? πŸ˜Š
