    Only to Dry My Washing

    I just need the sun to come out just for a little while to dry my work uniform ready for tomorrow! Once it's dry I don't care if it rains until tomorrow, in fact I hope it does because then I won't have to worry about watering the garden - Hee hee, I'm lazy!

    Wrong Place For It Though

    Especially In the Winter

    I need to see an eyeful of sunlight at least everyday and a small amount of exposure in the spring, fall and winter help keep the blues at bay.  I feel grateful that Colorado has close to having sunshine every day out of a year, but I still struggle a bit in the winter. Full...

    Sunshine

    Who can live without that bright, golden veil of heat? Can mornings be the same without the sun's ray patterns on our curtains or the sheer light that gently nods our eyes awake? Can I live without the smell of sun on my hair and skin? Not me. Can't live without it.
