New Day

"Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays."  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Looking forward to another Sky Watch Friday with bloggers from all over the world sharing their view of the horizon.  My view today is of big river country tucked under the shade of a huge old tree on a bright summer day.

And every day is a happy day when it includes a little surprise in the mail.
A delightful journal arrived this week from A Bouquet of Dreams where you will find lots of sweet inspiration and and one that I am sending out as a special surprise to celebrate the change of seasons, using Tattered Angels products and lots of glimmer mist.
Cape Cod Rambling Rose is hosting a creative challenge with this cute little image, just know there will be some fabulous things being posted soon.

It looks so beautiful and different than all of the snow that I've been seeing. It's a very nice picture.

I can always rely on two things when I come and visit:
1. Beautiful picture
2. Relevant words to live by; or well needed reminder from the quotes you feature.

Thanks.

It looks like a lovely summer day with just enough clouds to keep it from getting too hot, but still not enough to block all the sun :o)
