Joy List Monday

Joy List Monday
 ♥ a weekly ritual ♥
a reminder to stop and pay attention to the little beauties
and graces that make life magical and to set aside
time for gratitude each day

  Happy March
 ♥ from Penelope ♥

 ♥ Sunshine.. beautiful sunshine
we woke to -21 degrees this morning
when many are thinking Spring it is hard to do when that cold air takes your breath away
oh never fear, that sunshine comes out and feels so good even if it is -21 degrees

 ♥ Placing my seed order and designing the 2019 garden

 ♥ Girl Scout Cookies from Samantha my favorite Girl Scout

 ♥ Reading a fun book and taking time to read aloud the funny parts to my husband

 ♥ Watching a movie with my youngest son Atticus and having fun with the script later in the week
 Don't you love good movie lines.

Have a Great Week my friends.


  1. Oh those blue eyes! It has been really cold yet sunny here, too. For once I was glad to sit on the side of the car that got all the sunshine!

  2. Hello beautiful Penelope!! Happy Joy List Monday (well, Tuesday for me!). What movie did you watch? I guess I can't complain about 18 degrees but it feels so cold to how it's been lately!

  3. She is so pretty! That's a great list of joy and enjoy those cookies.

  4. I got my yummy girl scout cookies too from my sweet little neighbor. I loved that this year you could purchase girl scout cookies for the troops. So I got Terry his fave thin mints and then bought the rest of the boxes to give to the men and women serving our country. We are suppose to warm up in the 40's next week and then climb so I hope they are right. So maybe only this week still very cold and then it will warm up. Have a great week.

  5. Penelope is gorgeous!!! We love movie lines...they are in most of our conversations...LOL Hope you are having a good week so far! Love and hugs!

  6. We started making garden plans this week too! And those Girl Scout cookies.... they mean spring is around the corner!

  7. Penelope is one gorgeous cat! Those blue eyes are amazing.
    You have such a beautiful heart and it shows your thankfulness for even the simple things in life.

    Enjoy those sunny days 😎

  8. Beautiful cat and great that you can still find good things despite the freezing temps!

  9. Wow! Your cat is gorgeous! And I love seeing a good movie and using the lines after that! Stay warm...stay inside!!! Hugs, Diane

  10. Huh - I didn't get notified about this post until today. It's a balmy 15 this afternoon (and sunny, too!) We love movie quotes, too - the kids can have whole conversations using quotes from different movies! :)

  11. It sounds like you had a lot of fun and boy, that kitty's eyes are super blue. Amazing!!

  12. Wonderful blue eyes, lovely photograph.

    All the best Jan
