SOL 4/31: More of the Same, Except . . .

Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" 
to the Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Betsy, Beth, Kathleen, Deb, Lisa, Melanie, and Lanny
for hosting this meeting place each day in March
and for nurturing our writing lives.

                            Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres. 
                                            When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build. 
   A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember! 

On Saturdays I write my posts in blue because that is the day I write my Celebrate This Week post. And I love blue, so blue reminds me that it's celebration time.  Ruth Ayres started this group of friends who focus on celebrating the past week.  It means that I spend every week collecting small celebrations to share.  It reminds me that there are always celebratory moments to be found in the muck of everyday life.  

This week I'm celebrating weather.  February was rainy and gray, Almost. Every. Single. Day.  But March, holds the promise of something different, except this was what the weather forecast delivered this morning.  

Did you notice that forecast?  8 days of more rain, with the possibility of snow on one of those days!  So why am I celebrating?  Look again, this afternoon between the hours of noon and five will be partly cloudy, and the sun may peek through the clouds!  The timing is great since I'll be in a conference from 9 to 1, so I should be able to see some of that sun this afternoon.  And there's only a 30% chance of rain today.  And there will be two days when it will be in the fifties.  

And I spotted this pink at a friend's house on a gray day this week!
 And a friend delivered this spot of sunshine to me!

And who could be gray when you have pics
of grandsons Jack and Teddy to savor?

Have a fabulous weekend!
Wishing you spots of sunshine in spite of the gray!


  1. Oh, the reasons to celebrate! Jack belongs there in the midst of those flowers - what a happy little dot of life there!

  2. Oh! I love this. celebrating sun that may be... and a grandson!

  3. Joyful celebrations with sun and grandsons!

  4. So many spots of blessings and sunshine, Ramona - just wonderful!

  5. Wonderful that you'll get the sun. I wish we could trade a bit, our sunshine for your rain. Love the "Jack & Teddy pics", sounds like a special duo!

  6. Ramona, there is always cheer at your blog with grandson smiles despite the gray days. Weather here is weird with howling winds and very cold weather. Just stepped out to church and saw the sun shining so I thought it was warmer than I expected. Wrong-bitter cold but that is okay. There is no snow to shovel away this week.

  7. Lots to celebrate!!! Those are some cute babies! They would bring sunshine even on the grayest days!

  8. Babies to celebrate!!! It's the best! I remember those gray days in the Northwest from the years I lived in Portland, OR- but I remember, too, that the sunny days seem sunnier than anywhere else.

  9. Your week is filled with sunshine in lots of forms: a sneak peek of actual sunlight, grandbabies, gifted flowers, and slicing!

  10. All of your pics look like little rays of sunshine in your cloudy grey days. We all have so much to be grateful for even when the days are grey, or, sooooo hot. Always so positive Ramona. :)

  11. Oh my goodness those grand babies are absolutely adorable!

  12. Rays of sunshine! So precious!
