Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Here on the Wasatch Front we've had a cold, gray, depressing January so far.  But this morning, for
about 20 minutes, the sun shone.  (cue the hallelujah chorus) I had to take a couple of pictures
so I can look at them when we have another cold, gray, depressing day tomorrow.

I just wanted to thank you  for your kind comments on my Mary Englebreit cookbook
recipes.  You all are so supportive of my 15 minutes of fame!  Well, semi-fame.
I debated whether or not to post the recipes.   Didn't want Mary to lose
any revenue over my giving the recipes away for free.  After much soul searching I decided to share
them with my adorable blog friends.  So one day next week I'll post them
just for you!  Hopefully on a sunny winter day.

Such beautiful winter pictures, Mimi! I get to visit in a couple of weeks--can't wait! (My birthday present from my hubby--a few days with my folks!)

How exciting that you have those recipes! I love her cookbooks! (I think I have them all, too! I'll be getting this one, too, of course! Then I'll just have to whip up my Famous Friend's recipes!

Hope you're having a wonderful night, my friend!

Not only has it been cold and gray, but very COLD! (That means indoor recess for me and lots of energetic kids!) I enjoyed your sunshine pictures.

The sun like that is such a gift! I remember one year there in Kaysville, we had inversion for 4 months...ugh! Glad you enjoyed it :D

I'm kind of using you~to ride your rich and famous coattails. It's like you're Ronald Reagan! 'Member that big win, and all the Republicans "rode his coattails to victory?" Yeah. It's like that. :) I loved those 20 minutes of warm light coming in my kitchen windows this morning. So much so, that I promptly lost my head and drove to Gardner's Village. Came out to FREEZING SLEET WIND and about 4,000 BIRD TURDS ON MY FRESHLY WASHED VEHICLE. Seems I forgot the rule of Gardner's Village—something about "A bird on a wire is worth 2 tons of pooh"...something like that.

Blessed sunshine! It's good you captured it! No telling when the next sunny day will be here!

Love your home!

Sunshine makes me happy too! Love the picture of it streaming inside your home.

Where was I? I didn't see any Sunshine! Maybe because I was under the covers trying to keep warm.

There IS no sub for sunshine is there! We've been having tons of beautiful clear days...just bitter, BITTER cold!

Pretty photos, Mimi! We haven't had much sun here either! Looking forward to seeing the recipes!
