when skies are grey.

By the looks of things you may think the sun shines here every day. My blog is deceiving. In reality that is the only time I pull out the camera! The sun peeks its head once a week or so. Sometimes a little more, sometimes less.

I love the sun, oh how I love the sun. However, the rain hasn't bothered me much. I told that to my friend Tori and she said, "oh it will, trust me." Ha. I guess a month and a half isn't enough time to make a judgement. I think the reason it hasn't bothered me much is because although it rains and is cloudy you can get out in January and February. The temperature is moderate. The coldest days are when the sun is shining. So where I would normally be cooped up because of snow and bitter cold, we are outside playing because of clouds and rain and moderate temperatures. I can't complain.

Since moving here the song, "You Are My Sunshine" has a whole new very real meaning to me. My Grandpa Lee and Dad always sang that song to me growing up. My grandpa even had a dancing flower that sang it, too! That is where my blog title comes from.

sing it, come on you know that classic song...
"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey."

There are a lot of grey skies here. But I find a lot of sunshine in my surroundings. My family and friends, beautiful scenery, yummy food, new adventures, etc.

So the grey skies doesn't refer to the weather forecast inside the house. Rather, outside.

I LOVE that song! I sing it to the kids all the time because they really do make me happy when I'm grey (: By the way, I LOVED your post about the schedule and I copied it and tweaked it to fit me better (I wake up a tad bit later and go to sleep a little later) so thanks a ton!


its dont need the sun out to go out! i know Tori has been here alot longer than me but its been 2 years and it still doesnt really bother me. i think you just cant let it. but i promise the weather will make up for it in the summer and it will be great!
