it's a nice day for a ...

"white wednesday"

well, i took lots of pics for this post and only three turned out ... here you go ...

yummy white frosted cupcakes from Natasha ...




the sweetest baby shoes ever ... i said EVER ... from Lisa's new shop ...




and my favorite white pitcher ...





well guess what ... even though my pics didn't turn out ... i am feeling like superwoman
today ... oooops, careful there ... don't step on the cape ... it is only 10 am and already i
have supper in the crock pot {creole veggies and chicken }, dessert just came out of the
oven { fudge brownies with butter~cream frosting }, the dishwasher is run, two loads of
laundry are ready to be folded ... and ... best of all ... there is a shining yellow orb in the
sky that i do believe is called the sun ...woo hoo ... i haven't had this kind of energy in a
long while ... i am going to take advantage of that sun and head out to my flower beds to
pull some weeds ... i will get around to visit you tonight ... see you later :) ...

Now that sounds like a very productive morning. And you forgot to add "posted a new blogpost" to the list!
Enjoy the sun, you never know when she is going to disappear again.
