  2. What a lovely pitcher for your sun tea! I need to make some sun tea, too! And a mental list of all the things I am grateful for...

  3. Your sun-tea sounds wonderful, Carla. I'd love some this week, as it's supposed to be a warm week. The sunsets, birds, and flowers are all things to be grateful for. And the butterfly quote is one of my favorites. : ) Have a lovely week, Carla, and thank you for these "joy list" posts. They make my heart happy.

  7. Yes to all of those things! I was at one of my favorite places here in Madison, today, and thinking about how wonderful mild summer days are here in Madison. I'm so glad the humidity has lifted...even if it's only for a few days.

  8. Ive seen some butterflies and they are lovely. Yellow ones and I think I saw an orange one today. T hey like the flowering clover out front. I love your thoughts.
    I will add: Open windows, with a breeze, a drink by the lake , the pony in the field nearby, ....the new puppy I just my neighbor bring inside her house. She was rocking it. I think it is a cocker spaniel....
